I didn't really want to launch it before laser but competing with its sales was also not an option.

I might opt to move it later if more would join or extend the GB period...

What do you think guys?

Personally I have no plans to buy into GMK Laser, for what it's worth! I figure there will *always* be some other keyset or other artisan sale around the corner that could be considered "competition"... so delaying only benefits the window shoppers/tire kickers while making the day one fans wait longer.

But just to play devil's advocate, if you were to delay the launch, around when do you envision starting?

Well that's a relief considering the buy's been over for like a week and a half now.

Competition is always something to take into consideration, especially when the buy is being ran through a smaller retailer. Additionally, Christmas time is never kind on expensive pieces of plastic for obvious reasons - it set the original run of GMK SNES to failure amongst other buys that had a less than stellar performance because of this same reason.

I'd hate to see it happen to a set that is so dear to me.

That's what I considered at first, but I presumed that keyboards were sort of immune from the holiday belt-tightening that goes on. However, if there's a history of buys not doing well because of that, then I suppose it would be prudent to wait. When would you say that the average user's wallet has recovered and is ready to spend again? End of January?

I would just like to update you all on behalf of OP.

This group buy is going to be under way very soon on mechkeys.ca.

I have all the information & files required from the creator of the set - now I am working on the kit renders, one final IC as well as quotes from GMK. This group buy will happen!

Is this still the case for the GB?

On the one hand I'm glad that this is finally going to drop soon, but I do worry about GMK Taro being in close proximity since the purple audience will be split.

Real purple people will of course get both and already ordered laser.

Modifiers are like control, alt, shift, caps lock and such. text or icons just mean if those are represented by text, or icons which would be like just the arrow for shift

Would it be possible to add a R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn for 65% layouts?  There were some recent sets where GMK added this on their own during production because it's also used by their own recently-released C70 keyboard.  If they're going to add it anyway, it would be good to know that before you start taking orders.

It already has 65% support, its just a slighly different layout than that one.

Home
Pg Up
Pg Dwn
End

but it has all 4 in the right profiles.

Yes, and what I'm looking for is the two keycaps needed to add support for:

~`
Delete
PgUp
PgDn

As seen on the Tada68/Saber68, and most of the Whitefox layouts.

To make this set more compatible, I suggest including a set of 6u spacebars, both the off-center spacebar to support GMK Uniquey C70 and the center-stem spacebar for HHKB, Realforce 87U, FC660C, and Infinity Hacker 60%.

almost there : https://mechkeys.ca/collections/group-buys/products/gmk-black-lotus-gb :D

still holding out for this set :) (my body wallet is ready)

though... GMK Red Samurai is running, should we wait? (I think we should)

also do you have plan to offer Japanese Kits like Gaijin (Laser) or Nishi (Red Smaurai) ?
