[GB] GMK Oblivion (GB closed, production begun Sept 14th)
« Reply #150 on: Thu, 21 September 2017, 11:39:16 »

Any thoughts about doing a mod pack that includes those stellar additional colors on the SA Oblivion buy?  Don't have the money after consideration to do the SA buy, so I'd love to try to do the same layout on oblivion....
Are you referring to the red and blue Enter/Esc keys?

GMK Oblivion has begun production this week. QC + sorting puts us at end of September/early October still for the sets leaving GMK's factory. Another week to cross the lake and go through customs. Since the last update jchan has stated:

the new hire is charge of:

- Support (emails to support@keyclack.com NOT jchan@keyclack.com)
- Helping organizing / maintaining the office
- Shipping Store / Newly incoming things (muted, 1965 up and coming)
- QC soon.

with this information, I believe we will see the sets leaving KeyClack in the near future after arrival. It is the M65-A's complexity that forbids the new employee to handle those boards, but shipping trays and bags appears to be part of his duties.

Any thoughts about doing a mod pack that includes those stellar additional colors on the SA Oblivion buy?  Don't have the money after consideration to do the SA buy, so I'd love to try to do the same layout on oblivion....

Good idea. Count me in!

That is a big part of it, but there are other keys that would be good to add also that are not in the base set, i.e. the git modifiers.

Git modifiers would require like 20 new molds, so I have to make some investigations how it could be done, certainly on my radar. Red and Blue accent keys are also planned for the next rounds Monochrome kit. Maybe we can have them separate there so you can 'upgrade' existing kits.

But lets see how R1 turns out and is received by the community before we go too much into detail here :)

Thanks for the reply. I was just wondering where your head was on this.

Just got word back from GMK. Sets will ship out end of next week. One palette will head to Los Angeles (KeyClack HQ), a second one goes straight to Asia for the proxy some of you might have bought from. Also I'll be bringing my sets to the Frankfurt meetup on October 14th ;)

Thanks big O.

I'll be getting the manifest soon, and then get my logistics forwarder to help it clear customs and to my office. I'll be ordering the boxes for it as well.

Cheers.

I had the exact same reaction. The colors used in Oblivion are absolutely amazing. Every once in a while I'll look at the picture of the color samples to hold me over until this comes in.

This is from their instagram, I linked to their post of the gray set teaser last week. Those are the only two pictures available so far.

Yeah, I was hoping for a more frontal shot but I like the look of that one too.

Any word on whether these will be available for preorder on KeyClack? or will extras only be available after the gb purchases have been sent out?

Once GB orders are shipped out. Also might not be immediately after due to jchan being occupied with family matters still. There will probably be at least 48 hours heads up warning or so

Regretted didn't get the white along with the dark one. Cheeky question, Is there a GMK set with white alpha that match/close to the white oblivion set?

Would you consider to let buyers choose the alpha and modifier in the next round like SA group buy? So people who want both colors could have the oblivion and monochrome modifiers rather having the same.

It would be interesting to see what colors that is used for the grey / white.

I would guess white alphas are WS1 with CR legends?

I wanted to but splitting alphas and mods bumped the total price per base by 20$

Since this set used CP, you can always get Honeywell. They also use CP alphas with grey legends.

Yeah, any idea what's going on?  Oblotzky's earlier message (on the 6th) stated that a shipment went out to Asia and the one bound for the US was going to go out on Monday, i.e. last Monday.
