Is this Ivan's set?
To give the answer if the question was "Is this [the same as] Ivan's set":

The Dolch keycaps are very similar and both textless, but there are a few more (and different) ISO keys, mostly catered to ISO UK compability.

The Cyan kit is quite different, it only contains keys with cyan background, and quite a lot more of them. It does miss the cyan numpad enter and the dark background with cyan legends caps from Ivan's Cyan Mod-pack completely though.

EDIT: Correction, actually the cyan pack has none of the mod pack from the Ivan GB with the sole exception of the esc-key, even the white-on-cyan keys does differ in legends. Is this intentional?

i would like to have seen some of the mods from the cyan keyset included, as those keys are not available anywhere else (that i know of). For example, F5-F8, menu keys, and numpad operators. I also may have requested R4 1u Fn key, maybe LED keys for Caps/Scroll/Num Lock keys. of course, you could not do all these in addition to what is already shown, but at least let the community be involved in deciding these details.

I know this is probably picky but I would have loved to see a dedicated R3 Control. I know the blank one basically acts like it but for the mod pack I feel like it should be in there. Also, the HHKB backspace should be in there! Hope this is some helpful feedback ^_^

I will still buy it though ;)

Agree. R3 Control, HHKB BS and perhaps a Numpad Enter.

Will still buy both anyway, but those keys would have been sweet.

You definitely make a good point about the FN keys, I didn't even think about that. Most mod runs seem to actually include quite a bit more keys! Maybe just nitpicking but overall I am pretty excited to get this on my Sky Dolch

Also filled out the form, but to be extra clear: Changing to text modifiers would mean losing my order, missing cyan keys are minor, but the legends are the reasons why I've waited for this and haven't got a Dolch from originative.

According to voting so far the majority prefer icon legends for the mods.

Just filled the feedback poll. Just as you know it, I only want numpad from your GB. I already have 2 sets of dolch (with cyan color packs) that will fit both TKL and 1800 layout altogether. It will be wonderful if I can expand my TKL Dolch set to Fullsize layout. If you can somehow split the numpad, I will gladly buy from you directly instead of accepting offers from other people. Cheers.

Anyone looking to buy this but doesn't want UK specific set (num 2,3, @, # and ) I will buy it from you for one third of the price (29). Unless the Dolch mod set is released on its own!

I would happily swap my GMK numpad (minted, unused - from Ivan's GB) for the UK keys listed in my post above? I have a spare set going (inc others)

Icon-only legends will stay, voting was close however more did vote to keep the icon legends. Also plenty of text legend Dolch sets exist in the wild which was another argument for me to keep the icon legends.

Sorry if this isn't what you were hoping for.

Next time you should do GMK GB in other colorway. As much as I like GMK Dolch, there is already 3 GB (?) for GMK Dolch, and Originative also have them in stock these days.

Thanks for trying this :) I was really looking forward to GMK ISO Dolch but the numbers were not there this time.
