I hope so! Excited to get it, even if I don't have a keyboard for it yet. Thinking a black Tokyo60 may work well with it.

Please note that this is the shipping to customs office in Los Angeles, and we'll still have to clear + forward it. But I'll have it out ASAP.

Interesting. How is that working with the proxies? Do you ship back to them say in the EU? And then they ship out?

Best chance is on their Instagram page. I think they sometimes pass a crappy photo to the GB runner, otherwise it's a difficult request (as with any bloody factory).

Hi everyone,

Just an update. I got an email about everything being sorted, requested some photos, and they say they're waiting on the banderoles which should be done this or next week.

Cheers

What is a banderole? A quick Google says it's a flaglike object or an ornamental streamer on a knight's lance. I don't think either of these are quite right for keebs.  :)

true... it exists, and if it's used, it's usually in descriptive / educational terms, but never in common tongue


also, it's meaning is a paper-tape (like the one coin stacks are wrapped up in), but not plastic trays with compartments. Dunno what GMK was thinking when they came up with that ;)

They're not referring to the plastic trays, they're referring to the cardboard wrap that goes around them.

As do the alphas. Will be hard to judge I think until we get it in hand. Although, I'm anticipating it will be a bit lighter than originally thought.

the pantone match is pretty exact so I'm pretty sure it's just really really absurdly bright like what even. colour temperature is different between the two pics as well so you can't trust em.

Perhaps. But Iím hoping not. This particular set has taken a long time compared to a number of other sets that entered IC after it (royal Alpha, blue on black, 9009r2) so itís had a bit of a long journey. Either way the balance is def off in those pics. We need to wait till the runners have the keys on hand and can do some comparisons to the samples

Light and color grading can do a lot to a picture. Wait for them to ship before passing judgement.

we're hoping its just the lighting, the new color we selected is indeed GMK said they used



the sample in the bottom is the old color for alpha base that we didnt like bec its too blue and lighter. the new color should be the same as the one highlighted green in the photo that thesiscamper took.

I think GMK is sending out very overexposed pictures.  I'm also in the GMK Led Zep GB and we are having the same issue with the pictures they released of that set.  If you want you can see them at this link: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=91314.0.  I really really hope both sets are really over exposed though...

Yeah I saw that and thought it looked way too orange. Gives me hope that SD is close onto the original renders. They need to fix their photography to make it more realistic and true to tone.
