I haven't read thought this thread so hopefully what I'm about to say hasn't been said already.

From my perspective there's a few issues with this set, but the main problem is that there's a very good chance that, if this set got 150 orders, only the base kit would hit MOQ due to there being 2 options for modifiers. Most people will only choose one, making the effective MOQ closer to 250 (based on current order ratio) just to get 1 of the mod sets made.

I think if you wanted to try again I would suggest:
- Combining the base and green mod sets + light grey spacebars, to make 1 full kit.
- Keep the light grey mods as a seperate kit.
- Try and reduce the cost of spacebars, though I understand that this isn't up to you it just seems like a lot.

EDIT: Sorry if this sounded rude, just wanted to offer another perspective.

More problems I can think of:
  • Massdrop adds additional cost to already expensive GMK group buys
  • GMK Triumph Adler's shipping disaster and the weird color mixing driving away people who used to be interested in GMK sets

Massdrop screwed us up by launching Planck & Preonic before ours ends. This alone probably accounts for at least 50 defections. If this set is compatible with Planck/Preonic, only then it would make sense to launch Planck/Preonic now. They are usually pretty smart about this, but apparently not this time. Next time we are doing this with Massdrop, let's make sure they get the timing right.

I don't think that has anything to do with conflicts of interest. There have been multiple times where big price items have dropped side to side.

Is that really the fault of the group buy though? GMK is the prohibitively expensive to those with a passing interest in the hobby, I'd go for a Granite set over something like this if I wasn't more into keyboards either.

This does happen all the time. A recent & extreme example, a headphone product had 40+ buyers, but after MD launched TH-X00, the number went back to under 10 in less than a couple hours. Usually competition between drops won't matter much, but unfortunately GMK products have unique properties of being relatively expensive and have very high MOQ at the same time.

If I am not mistaken Massdrop doesn't ship to Vietnam because they had problems in the past. Not 100% sure though...

Maybe that's why he is looking for a proxy.

122 orders.  28 more orders in the next 12 hours, what do you guys think?  Maybe Massdrop can pick up the rest of the orders and sell them in an April or May Bazaar sale or something...  Here's to hoping it goes through, I can't afford more than one complete set.

I really hope it goes through. With all the orders, recently I think we have a chance.

I have spent all I can on this and probably more than I should have.

Isn't there a MOQ for each kit? 122 orders don't necessarily mean 122 for each kit... I hope we can pass the MOQ too.

I definitely want this set to happen, but I'm just speculating based on the fact that each kit needs 150 orders minimum and we have only ~130 total.

There is always the chance of vendors and such picking up orders at the last minute. It is irritating though that MD hasn't updated the Kit count though.

The issue is those numbers haven't been updated and over 50 orders have been added today alone. That is not even accounting for the last few days as well.

Look at the total numbers, however--only around 180. If one set were to reach MOQ, then 150/180 orders has to be one of the sets, and unfortunately none of those kits constitutes a full keyboard kit.

Finally,it's alive  ;D ;D Congrats Moz for your great works  :thumb: :thumb:

Yeah and it's up to 181 sets!

So this will happen even though none of the individual sets have reached MOQ?

My guess is no, but I'm hoping MD will make up the difference to sell off on their own. I really want this set

Those numbers haven't been updated in a few days though :/

Look at the total numbers, however--only around 180. If one set were to reach MOQ, then 150/180 orders has to be one of the sets, and unfortunately none of those kits constitutes a full keyboard kit.

I understand that. We can only wait and see at this point though.

Yeah it would be completely pointless for only one pack to drop, and I mean even if we did get 150 orders on the base set, we still need mods... which are separated into 2 different packs that probably won't hit MOQ.

I suspect many people may have bought mods only.
Latest updated numbers suggest the green modkit actually had slightly more orders then the base kit, so maybe we are in a good spot for green mods at least.

It would be sad if not all of the options make it tho since I feel like they are all equally important to creating the full experience...

Welp, imo, the grey mods killed the buy haha. I would love the entire set, but don't have $200 to drop on it. Also, as the rep said, looks like if grey mods are dropped altogether, it would lower base kit even more. As much as I hate to say it, buy looks dead in the water.

If it dies, I would love for this to come back, but with the alphas and green mods as one kit, seeing as that's the real meat of the set. Then the light mods and space bars as separate child deals.

If I wasn't about to start the home buying process, I'd probably attempt to run without the light mods myself.

I hope people who ordered only base kit and green mods realizes that they still need spacebar to complete the set.

This is what I was hoping for from the start.  Then again, even with the base kit and green mods seperate, the total price probably isn't going to be much different.  $138 doesn't really seem that bad.

Numbers were finally updated:
Base Kit - 118 / Unlock - 150
Green Modifiers Kit - 106 / Unlock - 150
Light Gray Modifiers Kit - 42 / Unlock - 150

sir can you ship to viet nam please, im want to buy 1 set, this set look amazing

You can order on MassDrop :)

If I am not mistaken Massdrop doesn't ship to Vietnam because they had problems in the past. Not 100% sure though...

Maybe that's why he is looking for a proxy.
yep because some bastard then we got this ****, now i have to look for the way to get this set

The buy has been extended as is now up to 231. Hopefully this extra day will allow us to reach our goal(s).

Only if people pick up more base and green mod kits.

Any update on the extra spacebar "situation"?

If I order a 2nd spacebar kit I have to add another order which means another 5$ in shipping. Adding a 3rd spacabar kit is another 5$ for shipping.

This keeps me from buying the green spacebars in addition to my fullsize set :(

Someone raised the same question on MassDrop. I've emailed them on the same. Since MassDrop is hosting this, it's their decision on how to handle it.
