Had to cancel my GMK Oblivion with White Alphas order...






so that I could reorder both the White Alphas and Grey Alphas! I can't decide which I like more!

I'm getting close to doing the same. Can't decide yet so difficult to pull the trigger on both knowing that I'm probably buying these again in SA profile in the fall.

There was an update the other day on reddit about the set being definitely pushed through to MOQ. Does this also apply to the monochrome mods? These are still sitting pretty low.

I'm kind of confused too. I'm currently in for the white alphas but right now all the sets look like they're not going to make MOQ.

jchan is buying out the remaining base sets as mentioned a few times before. Spacebars are looking good so possibly too, Monochrome we are getting back to GMK if they can lower MOQ to 100 or so, will let you guys know soon.

Oh wow, I didn't realize he was buying out both of the base sets. That makes sense then. Thanks for the update and bring this to us as a GMK set.

There are thirtynine orders for the Monochrome addon, even if GMK lowers the MOQ to a hundred, it would still be unlikely to happen. That's very sad, that addon is very nice looking.

GMK has responded saying that Yuri will be first set with convex short spacebars, but we're asking to see if we can receive them as well for it.

The timing is so perfect, it would be a shame to not have these done "right".

Yes, remaining base sets will be bought and sold as retail units. This set is being produced.

We are checking with GMK if Monochrome is doable at a lower MOQ, in which case that would go through as well. buying out 100 of those will probably not happen, but please don't let that stop you from placing an order for them.

For clarification, prices would be higher after the GB, right? For example, Honeywell was around $130 during the GB but now it is sold for $190

Hi, that's correct. We will have a higher retail price for immediate shipment.

MoQ for Monochrome was lowered to 100, with Asian Proxy we are at 65 units I believe, so we're good to go through!

Sigh.... Even $42 shipping but I can't skip it anyway.

I know that aftermarket price would crazy af because these sets are very close to best GMK keycap sets have ever made.

I just hope the shipping cost will be lower in the future, I do not want to skip GMK keycaps because of this reason.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for supporting for the set.

Here are a few official answers:

1. How's international shipping?

Unfortunately, it will remain the same. We'll work on improving it in the coming weeks.

2. Will all kits make it?

Yes. With the Asia proxy, we have enough to move forward for ALL kits. Monochrome modifiers MoQ was graciously lowered to 100 by GMK.

---

Hope that clears everything up for people. Thank you so much for checking out the new site and joining the buy. Cheers!:)

And lastly...

3. Will the 2u be convex?

Yes. Same as yuri. Apparently the other other smaller spacebars (smaller than 6u) are not going to be convex according to gmk.

Looks like this was a pretty successful GB, can't wait for my sets to come.

From my own personal experience, midnight should never be used as a deadline for anything. It always leads to confusion. Best bet is always to use 11:59 pm.  When you use midnight people see the date (5/19 in this case) and assume that they can place an order that day when they cannot. Like when a coupon or similar expires on 5/19 you can use it all day, but when a GB ends at midnight 5/19 you have to have your order in by 5/18.  Just a thought for future GBs.

Hi JC,

Sent the email to the team to add 1 more set of Spacebars Kit before the group buy ends. Could you please kindly check and advise?

Since there is no order number given, please kindly check the email and I order 1 set of each different set as reference. 

Thank you.
