SA Retro is still gonna happen. I guess around the end of summer.

GMK Retro is under development. I don't think we can run both color ways so we are trying to come with something.

Then, would it be FCFS for ready made keyset?
Like SA nuclear?

Oh, I feel nervous that I could not get the set.  :(

Yes, it's not ideal. They will never meet the demand :(

I missed nuclear data by like 15 minutes, and ended up buying a set someone was flipping for $300 :(
I don't want to do the same for Retro.

I'm not sure why we can't preorder the kits? This way they will produce enough kits for everyone.

We donít want to do the pre-order thing again, that was too much for us to handle as our system isnít set up properly for it. We know there is a ton of demand for SA sets. Right now we really just canít commit to running stock stuff in SA, as we have too much in the backlog Ė pre-orders would require a commit date and that just isnít possible right now.

Please. .for the love of all that is holy, run the exact same colorway as R1.. I was to late to the party and have regretted not grabbing the set when it was available.. is this confirmation that it will for sure happen? . thank you!

I'd really just like the mods in the dark brown and the function keys in the grey as an option like the picture :). My personal preference would be to make it as close to the colors of the Commodore 64 breadbin. I'm sure everyone wants burgundy too though.

Does anyone have any idea's for Gray/Beige manufactured keyboard cases that could house the SA Retro Keycaps? It would look really nice I bet!

I'm not even asking SP anymore. I know they are on and off production in between the regular stuff. They just finished another round of Nuclear, so I guess next will come Retro

They just dropped SA Lime, and new garbage bags will not have any SA Retro sadly: https://pimpmykeyboard.com/whats-new . Meaning there was no recent manufacturing round.

Hopefully they will start engaging community a bit, otherwise they will find that people either don't know what is being sold or cannot buy it due to money spent on something else or are not willing to buy it due to lack of kits etc.

Looks like SA Retro is going to miss its "Summer" release. Maybe it'll be a Fall release. In 2018. Hopefully.

If you read just 5 posts before yours, matt3o said:

    "I'm not even asking SP anymore."

Therefore it stands to reason he doesn't have an update, and won't have an update for us. We all just have to wait for PMK's announcement.

Interesting but no PETSCII codes.  I think i'll wait on SP.  I did however, pre-order the Western set a while back.  I'm not fond of the novelties, but the brown and tan in the base set is something that I've wanted since day 1 of finding custom keycaps.  Sure wish someone would do it in GMK as well.

According to Matt3o it should be happening but that was also said last year too. Hereís to hoping! Iíd rather support the original designer wherever possible.
