Quick Update: You guys are mad crazy! Just wanted to thank everyone for the enormous support this project has received. In the first 24 hours, we sold more than 830 basekits! (still missing numbers from one vendor).

Dvorcol will put a more detailed table of total numbers for the first day in a while. Again, thank you so much, guys!

So I guess all the kits have met their MOQ then? The base kit numbers are looking good, but I thought they'd be a little higher TBH.

I wasn't going to join the GB as Mictlan doesn't have proper UK ISO support, but frankly it's just too gorgeous to pass on and $99 for the base kit is a bargain by GMK standards.

NovelKeys has been advertising that this set would run until July 2. I was only able to purchase on July 2, and had been planning on it. Loaded up the web page today to see the GB has closed. Pretty terrible on NovelKeys part. I would still like to purchase 3x of the Papel Picado - Base and 1x of the noevelties. I've sent a support ticket to NovelKeys but I'm concerned I won't hear back for days, due to the US holiday.

@vheissu: you know of any way to contact NK and let them know their error? Any way to make sure the kits I need are included in the order?

Based on the massive success of this group buy, a separate International kit GB just might reach MOQ.  As long as vheissu is OK with it, you (or someone else) could give it a shot.

Hello everyone! I'm back, and I want to thank all who have supported this project since the beginning. It has been a great success.

Order to GMK has been placed, and now all we have to do is wait. Frequent updates will be found in this thread and on my discord server: Room 181 https://discord.gg/kcSs7KCYHD

See you later.

Not for this round since it's a little bit late, but probably for R2!
