If I buy a russian set, will I be able to use it with a winkeyless board, or will I have to buy RGB mods for that?

It comes with everything for WKL except a spacebar, which IMSTO also sells. It's the 7x GMK one.

Actually, R2 includes the 7x GMK spacebar with the set. Any additional purchases are for backups. ;)

Some picture to clarify the font color :

Just wondering, have you guys (IMSTO, Tony) considered going with a lighter shade of blue for the dyesub?

I'm not familiar with the dyesub method and colour choices, but I think the original Peacock keycaps had a light blue which looked nicer to me.

That said, I'm still getting the set, I just thought I'd share my thoughts on the difference in colour.

I second the lighter shade of blue. But that being said I ordered a set and plan on keeping it regardless of the color.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

I emailed imsto ~24 hrs ago. He just got back to me saying it was too late to place an order, and to hope that there are extras to be put on the site later.

Well, the deadline for ordering was November 15th.  I'm guessing these caps are in production now, and should be shipping in 10-12 weeks if there are no unforeseen issues in the manufacturing/printing process.

How are these coming along?

I just sent imsto an email to ask him about the 2nd GB.
Here is the answer from imsto:
"it's a gb at geekhack, and now, we just got the bsp keys, so I think it will be sent even after the Chinese new year. because the workers will be in holidays very soon."
So we all need to wait until after Chinese New Year.
Hope it can help.

Been there done that so I can confirm about this.
Some even start to work a month after the Chinese New Year.
So we have no worry about this until the beginning of March 2015.

Last update from Tony was Feb 2, saying how CNY will interrupt the dye-sub process. Keys have already been manufactured by BSP. Estimated shipping in March.
Something about the keys no longer having crooked stems, and to wait for pictures to come.

This is how it's like dealing with Imsto, for the experienced here on GH we already know he doesn't sleep on his PC and keyboard reading and responding to everyone's emails/pm's simply because he's way too busy.

Unlike BunnyLake which literally walks you along from purchase to distribution Imsto and Qtan won't have time, hence for newbs they start feeling insecure and ignored but relax this is normal operandi when dealing with Imsto, months of quiet then BOOM your stuff gets delivered to your front door, sometimes with little fanfare or fireworks.

Maybe because he's asian they don't like to communicate constantly, holding everyone's hands or even changing nappies on certain desperates here on this forum.  Usually when there's no news then that's just it, NO NEWS as of yet.  The good thing also when it comes to dealing with Imsto is that when he posts news it is either BRILLIANT or it's EXTREMELY bad hence there won't be any posting of gibberish, idiotic, non-order type of news relating to this Group Buy.

So for everyone here, just hang in there we are way past the half way mark so it's getting closer and closer to our key-sets  :thumb: .

What are the chances of IMSTO listing a few of these sets on his site, after the GB is completed?

This would be great.  I certainly don't mind waiting more time, it would be nice to just get some clarification on what part of the process these caps are in.  Looking back on Zeal's post in the r1 thread, Tony from Hammer mentioned that the caps had already been manufactured, and were ready to be dye-sublimated, but due to CNY, they would be slightly delayed.  Hopefully things are just a little lost in translation, and imsto is simply just finishing the dye-sublimation.

For me personally I have dealt with you before and you ALWAYS delivered on every Group Buy you have run here on Geekhack  8) .

The rest that have participated in this GB had started panicking and already were erecting the gallows, tied some course rope, readying for your public execution here on this forum.  Arranging a BSP dye-sub group buy, isn't like GMK or SP because it will always take a great deal of time to process hence all the impatience from noobs thinking they got gipped.

Imsto has always delivered in the past and he has never failed to send all paid for items to your front door, which really matters here on Geekhack.  Maybe that's why I always jump into another BSP group buy run by Imsto because when you receive them, your PBT fetish shall be satisfied once and for all.
