Sorry!!! I ran out of international shipping supplies and need to go and get more boxes.  I hope to do that tonight and ship yours out tomorrow!  I felt bad when I was just one international package away from catching up with domestic!  Doing my best!

Sorry about the delay, production time (12 weeks) was out of my control, and I received them right around the holidays.  If I am to do this again, I'd try and get the keys delivered in the summer instead so that my holiday plans don't affect shipping.  This was my first GB and also didn't really conceive of the amount of work this takes!  Glad you like them.  Did they arrive safely?

No worries, it's all good. Staying responsive and making reliable statements is all I need.

Hey Manifex,

Thanks for running the GB!

I received my set today and ran through all my keys and unfortunately there are some defects with my "Y" and "U" key (see attached photo).

They keys don't have scuffs, rather it seems like a problem with the doubleshot process.

Is there a way to remedy this problem (ticket to GMK I assume)?

Yes, I'll PM you my e-mail address and we will get this taken care of with GMK.

It is now!  Just shipped out another group of sets.  The store ran out of my international boxes, so I could only ship out 4 more international orders.  I most likely will do two or three more shipments to finish up.  76% done!  Wooooot!   :p

Received my set yesterday. Amazingly well packaged - the best packaging of any group buy I've participated in :thumb:

A heartfelt thank-you MaNiFeX for running such a great group buy. You've kept everybody informed throughout with constant updates - no disappearances or lame excuses. If only all group buys were run so well.

Awesome!  I thought my packaging was pretty 'barebones,' but I wanted it to be effective.  Glad to hear the group buy lived up to standards.  I wanted this to be the opposite of Miami Nights...  and with $15,000 of other people's money, the least I can do is be communicative. 

Thank you for participating!

Aww, thanks.  I'm definitely blushing.   :-*

If my packaging keeps a set safe going all the way to Malaysia, I'm pretty sure I did OK!  For any of you interested, I used 'packing paper' to wrap the set similarly to a butcher wrap (see below).  I then filled the remaining space with bundled packing paper to keep the set tight in box.  For domestic, I was able to do a butcher wrap the approximate size of a small flat rate box in order to keep the set from moving/getting damaged.

Thanks gajible.  It's my first GB, had to really push for it to hit MOQ.  I didn't want to mess it up.  Lots of logistics.  Had a couple mis-shipments, a few QC issues that I've had to resolve, but for the most part, it's gone well on my end, too.  Looking forward to finishing up shipments this week and maybe into next week. I haven't bought/modded/played with keebs during the GB to keep myself focused.  Looking forward to getting back in the game.

Alright!  Got some more packages shipped out.  I will most definitely be done next week at this rate.  Thanks for all who have been patient.  It was my goal to be done with this within 6-9 months.  Looks like we are going to make it.

Thanks Fictiouz!  Only 25 more left.  Hoping to get all packed this weekend and shipped next week.  :thumb:

 Unfortunately, it looks like I'm going have to use $300-500 of my own funds to finish shipping due to my international shipping miscalculation.  I based it on shipping to Canada which is $10 cheaper than overseas shipping.

Any International Buyers that can pay me an extra $10, it would really help out!

I already sent 20 and am in Canada. If I wasn't so tight for cash I would send another 20 more!

My package is on the truck and going to the post office as we speak. Can't wait to see the set in person!

Thanks again for hosting a kick ass group buy, Matthew! Next GB should be a novelties pack. ;)

Dude, you didn't need to do that!  You are one of the few that I didn't need that from!  Appreciate it so much!  Per the next GB, I really got to think about leading another!  I wanted to do something a little smaller, but shipping to 150 people (or more) is challenging!  Maybe if I had a European/Asian proxy, it would make it a little less daunting.

I'm not even part of this gb but I sent you a ten spot to help see you through the end of this one.  Too many group buy leaders end up stalling the buys when they run out of funds to ship and won't admit a miscalculation on their part.  I assume with how shipping costs change its an easy mistake to make.  Good luck!

Just received the replacement of my broken '5' and 'H' keys. Thanks a lot!

Fantastic!  Glad to hear.

Got my set the other day and I'm super impressed. Packaging was fantastic and the caps look even better than I expected.

I have one tiny issue with one cap that I'll PM you about MaNiFeX but otherwise, I couldn't be happier with this GB. :-)

All orders packed. I hope to get them all shipped tomorrow.  Thanks for those that threw in the extra cash for the group buy.  I really appreciate it.

OK!  All but one packaged shipped (awaiting address confirmation)!!!   :eek:

After shipping the last package, I will be keeping the thread open for replacement needs.  Looks like I'm only about $150 in the hole for the project, so pretty happy about that!  Thanks to all that helped make this happen.

100% Shipped


OK, everyone.  You should be getting your keycaps soon if you haven't already!  Pending some replacements, this group buy is over!  Thank you all who made this possible.

Picked up my set today and did a quick check. No scratches or damage. Very good packaging job, 10/10 would buy again (please please please would you consider adding 1800 support for your future GBs please please please :) )

These may not be the droids I'm looking for, but it's definitely the keyset I am looking for :D

Yes, that was my one realization after launching this: I should have included 1800 support.  :rolleyes:  Glad you got your set and like it!

The set already includes most of the major pieces for 1800 layout: small right shift, 1u Numpad '0' and the split numpad +/- keys, really the only things missing are the 3x1u keys for the cluster at the top.

In any case, I now face the difficult decision of what board to actually put these caps on or build a new board just for this set :-|

Hmmm.  Your QFR would display them nicely.  I have mine on a Leandren R5 HHKB right now, but might put them on the Exent or my VA68M.  Tough decisions!!!

They'd look super clean on a black Exent. Actually any Exent for that matter...

If there ever is another run of this I'll be super interested!
