There will be an EU vendor, TKC will be announcing this soon.  :thumb:

As for other concerns on the kit, we have already discussed most of it and it will up to their team to finalize which will be approved.
Will there be an Asia/Oceania vendor as well?

not sure if these have been brought up but:
- weabo alphas should have an extra tab, as this would mean you can cover 2 boards if you buy that and the base
- any reason as to why the shift and enter 1u's in 40s are text when the icon moulds exist?

What color is the black used is it CR? I would only get the 40s kit for the spacebars, and if it's CR, I already have Hiney's GMK OG Spacekeys set, and don't need those particular caps again.

I'd like to know if the black used is GMK CR too.
iirc this IC page used to say it will be CR.

Are all blanks in the 40s kit convex?  In the render some don't look like they are.

Awfully quiet for a set slated to launch in the next few days. Any updates on the kits?

I think that's why its quiet, the kits seem to be final even though they dont really make sense =(

If they're trying to update kits and get quotes from GMK, GMK's response time delays are going to cause complications.

Mito has things show up to drop with a week's notice. Other places usually dont. Sorta think we're more than 2 weeks out here.

Yes the kits are mostly fixed already with just minor changes that we have already sent request for GMK to approve/quote on. GB post will be posted by tomorrow or friday.

Yes, there seems to be some delay on GMK's responses lately, maybe due to the issues today. Even without their confirmation we can push through since the changes on the kits are minor, we already have estimated the cost implication more or less.

Hopefully r2 'Out' and r3 'Read' have been changed to something most people would actually end up using? pg up and pg down, for instance

Was there even a discussion about adding those keys to the kit in the first place, or is it a thekeycompany pandering arbitrarily to their specific boards type of thing?

Didn't notice that before, and I'm pretty disappointed.  Something like that should be an addition, not a replacement.

That will stay as is. Because I did not see it as something that would greatly affect the theme/design of the set, which is my main focus on this project.
