Hi guys. IC form is created. ;D

Please help us to confirm details!  :D

Thank you for considering our comments.  I appreciate it.  Normally turned switches would make
This board much more appealing to me.

I myself prefer LED south facing PCB too.  ;D

If you are looking at changing the PCB are you willing to add ALPS support?

I am sorry to say no.  :-[

Still unsure. Few things need to be changed and may take some time.

1.5kg with assembly.
There is no room to put a weight in I guess.

After reading all feedbacks and having a discussion, we decided to change switch orientation to normal(not inverted as old one).
Brass plate and Titanium badge are added.
Other things like default colors, plate colors, QMK supporting... etc, are still pending.

The first thing we need to finish is to test our new PCB.
If it's passed the examination, I think the GB date will be close.

Thanks for all your comments. We promised to do a GB surely better than previous two in China. ;D

Glad to hear it!

Please do make sure everything is in order before GB opens haha, Time TKL and GMK Laser are both currently active so I'm (and surely others too) going to be very poor for the rest of the month T_T

Im wondering if, given the classic design and feel, the pcb can support alps switches also. That for me would as SO much value to the package. How does everyone else feel about that?

Op has already mentioned that it's not an option unfortunately

even if it did have alps support, would you want to spend that much money on an awesome board and then have to scrap together some random keycaps for compatibility?

You have a point... But still... think about that vintage looking board with some sweet sweet Alps blues.. Hnngg

If this stays at the $250 mark, and in that purple shade in the Original Post, Im 100% in!

Extra for brass? Sure!

South facing LEDs please!

This thing looks rad!

Is there a complete list of proposed case colors somewhere? I skimmed through the thread a few times but haven't seen it.

We are currently testing our PCB right now.  ;D
Looks like it won't delay anything of our up coming schedule.

R2 cases in China will be sent to anodizing factory on 25th.
We will see how they goes and start to plan GH GB. :thumb:

Thanks for being so patient.

Any info on how the GH GB will be hold? Unlimited quantity or limited one. If limited, FCFS? Raffle?  ^-^
