Damn. This is a simple, classic, satisfying set that I really hope makes it to production one day. This and GMK SNES. I was ready to buy at least 2 sets, maybe 3.

Key clack dropped me. To busy with other things to run more GB at the moment. Go support Stranger Keys and Led Zep.

If people really want this set and don't want the others listed above, I might be willing to run the GB myself but only if I can garner up enough interest to make it worth my time and effort.

Bummer. Agreed with the other posts that I'd love to see this set made one day (I'd be in for at least one, more likely 2). Also agreed with posts mentioning it'd be great if another vendor were willing to pick up and run the GB instead. Whatever shakes out, thanks for all of your work on this -- it's a great-looking set.

I figure this is as good a time as any to announce I WILL BE PICKING UP THIS GB. That's right, your favorite pastry-feline amalgamation will be attempting to bring this set to life.  Right now we're very close to the GB stage, just waiting on final kit quotes from GMK before we can move forward. I'm way too excited to get those cute little fire novelties on a board.

Yeah, that's unfortunate. I'd still prefer this set cause the novelties and spacebars are nice, but P3 and RO2 are very close. This is gonna make things difficult.

I like the forge much better. Also oco lacks plenty of compatability.   (compare skidata and charred orange for example. Close on paper, but skidata is much better looking)

This simply looks better that "Demonic" (friggin orangish red), but sadly it may make it hard to reach MOQ for Forge.

Demonic uses RO2. There's nothing orange about it. It's their most "red" red.

Then either their renders or my screen is bad. Forge looks much more reddish.

They're not bad, they're just not in the right colorspace.  It looks to me like they always save the images as CMYK instead of RGB.  Either that or they use something like 10-bit color that doesn't translate to our pleeb screens

Still planning on running the buy since there's no real downside to running it and failing MOQ. There seems to still be enough support for it that we could hit MOQ, but we'll have to wait and see now won't we.

He's dealing with Royal Alpha Round 2 right now.

Also there have been 10+ keyset group buys open this month.

Communication with GMK can be fickle at times and they're the ones we're currently waiting on for finalized quotes and a few small touches. I would be fine with managing the GB alongside of Royal Alpha, but like others said it may be best to wait until past at least the next payday since there's been a high number of buys this month.
