2.Weight options: Brass and PC are available , and standard badge is the same color as the case.

Approved :thumb:

PSA to prospective buyers:
Group Buys are inherently risky endeavors. There is an element of risk involved with collecting payment before the item has been produced and resulting uncertainty during manufacturing / subsequent operations. We urge all GB organizers to consider (and document) these risks, and want to make it clear to all who consider purchasing that these risks are present.

If you are unfamiliar with the Group Buy model, please read this primer - Group Buy FAQ / Buying Guidelines

This PSA is new and will become standard on all Group Buys moving forward. It is not posted on this GB in isolation and is not singling this organizer out in particular as someone to be wary of.

1. Why is the GB not live on keygem?

2. If I buy https://www.mmkeyboard.com/products/hhkb-6u-extra-parts-pcb-and-foam-kit?variant=44548183032034 (MM-EC PCB kit) and the case with Ano-Black(MX PCB Kit or MM EC PCB Kit), which parts am I missing then for a complete build? It seems only keycaps?

3. Do you sell Topre sliders or do I have to use MX keycaps?

Keygem's GB will be live this week

2. If I buy https://www.mmkeyboard.com/products/hhkb-6u-extra-parts-pcb-and-foam-kit?variant=44548183032034 (MM-EC PCB kit) and the case with Ano-Black(MX PCB Kit or MM EC PCB Kit), which parts am I missing then for a complete build? It seems only keycaps?
Yes, only need keycaps.

3. Do you sell Topre sliders or do I have to use MX keycaps?
 MM-EC PCB kit:  EC PCB, Plate Stabs, Niz standard Housings, Sliders(MX S), Domes, EC springs, Type-c Daughterboard
so only need mx keycap

^ very much this. It's intriguing but all I'm seeing is a very ambitious project from an unproven GB runner with only a bunch of renders.

Are there any photos of the board?

And the GB is still open for orders even though the GB period is over?

https://keygem.com/products/mm-hhkb-keyboard-kit-group-buy says the GB ends 15th Dec, but yeah this post says different.

From MM discord today:

"@everyone  Sad news that MM-HHKB hasnt reach the moq of 200 units, so we cant make this project happened  TT .  We are contacting all the vendors and we will arrange the refund of our website in 7 days.  Anyway we may try to re-make a more complicated design of this and maybe will make another Tru-HHKB layout board in later days. At last thks for all your support and wish you guys a happy day!"

This is just poor execution of the GB, frankly.

No review units, no videos at all, GB period way too short, vendors not live when they should be.

But more importantly, 2 other live GBs when this started, so people don't trust them.

I don't trust them. Deliver Class60 first please, and make sure to send out review units of both MX and Topre to different streamers. Then wait for them to post their videos before you start the GB, or coordinate it.

I didn't want a "more complicated design". I wanted this.
