Purple alphas are starting to grow on me :x

Some better renders of each of the alpha colors with the addition of a poll might be a good step forward.

I like the YAWK novelties. What about a Dominoes themed cap? Enter maybe?

I like the YAWK novelties. What about a Dominoes themed cap? Enter maybe?

I actually love the idea of a dominoes themed cap. I'm falling out of favor with the man down...I think a domino tile piece for an R3 caps lock and a minivan enter novelty would pair better than lyrics.


Let do it with icon mod, bro.

I actually finally got a response back from GMK about the set which included many quotes/moq's and information pertaining to the set.

1. Custom colors require base kits to meet 250 MOQ no matter what
2. Novelties/Spacebars/Icon kits are ok for 150 MOQ

I've still got to figure out vendors and stuff because the quotes I received are excluding VAT, Banking and Shipping so I'm not too sure how markup would look!


Here is an image of an icon mods kit which I've added to the kit image album!



Going to provide some new images for novelties so we would have the following

1. R1 Casette tape
2. 4x R1 YAWK
3. R3 1.75u Domino
4. R3 2.25u Minivan

then once I get a revised quote on that I'll talk to some vendors!

now should the minivan be facing left as per the album. or right for continuity reasons...

I would face it to the left for aesthetic reasons. With a MOQ of 150 for spacebars/novelties, would it make sense to combine the kits into one?

based on the pricing I have now, it would make most sense to add novelties to the base kit,

but I'm gonna inquire about some new novelties and see what the price difference is and go from there...you're right though, some form of kit combination to ensure hitting MOQ is smart

I like the minivan idea! Love the first image colorway, definitely interested. Still unsure about the novelties but I would probably get it even without.

Maybe make a novelty enter key that is purple but has the minivan on it? Love the colors so far!

Like all of them a lot except the enter due to the size of the van. But I usually don‘t like it when the icons are too big, the van itself I find super nice!
Tbh, I don‘t get the domino reference (but I also don‘t know Kendrick and he‘s music that well), but it looks awesome as a novelty!

Ah and I forgot to mention (since I haven‘t said anything about this set yet) that the colors are really growing on me and I might be in, depending on the price and point in time  it‘s going to run.

In the icon mod kit, theres a mac command sub-legend - is that double-shot or pad printed (the command icon) ?

I'm going to try get some competent renders of the set on boards out there, see if it generates any more interest...as it stands right now I dont think theres enough to meet MOQ. So we'll see,

Love to see it happen but I'm a realist :)

Agreed, I think this set is one that might grow on people past their initial judgement. The colors are certainly not traditional.

I'd love to see this as renders! Similar keysets with unorthodox colors were not popular until people saw how it'd look IRL. Looking forward to it!

Sort of playing the waiting game a bit...From what I've seen GMK sets aren't doing so hot, I think theres some crazy oversaturation of the market with GMK groupbuys. Like Carbon R2 isn't exactly selling like hotcakes but it has one of the most busy IC threads and is on Massdrop but they are like nearly 140 base kits away on the bone kit and 60 away on the carbon base kit...so thats kind of discouraging for smaller GMK IC's such as this which require 250 kits to be sold.

So I dunno, maybe I'll bring it up in 2019 when the market isn't so overloaded with GMK gb's, but right now I just dont think it'll realistically ever hit MOQ.

that sounds pretty great honestly, there are way too many being run atm. And hyping this set up continually after all these popular purple sets finish off might generate a better buy.

Just when you thought you were out, they pull you back in...

Set looks amazing. Your approach to waiting a little while makes sense although I wouldn't take carbon as the only relevant precedent. I think this set reminds me more of Olivia in its innovation and appeal.

Thanks! Oh dont worry its not just factoring carbon but many of the GMK gb's in the past couple months that have struggled or outright not made it that worry me the most. I think 2019 I'll try to do a better job in getting eyes on the set. my initial posting run on RMK wasn't well done, I think the help of a reputable vendor other than Massdrop would help immensely.

Plus  I'll probably invest in making a much much much smaller base kit to make this infinitely more accesible.

I cannot agree with you any more! Too much GMK right now. Maybe late Q1 of 2019 is a good time for this set.
I really really appreciate your design. Waiting for your GB!

Any idea on doing accessories like desk mats/ artisans/ cables? Now that there’s probably a while ‘til the GB.

Saw this way back and now it came up again in "Unreads".

I must say it's growing on me and I really wanna get something like this down the line. Good that it'll be later in 2019 (reading through some posts previously) as now there's really way too many GMK GBs happening :D

desk mats maybe. Artisans would be really dope though, I've already asked Bgnu-Thun in the past about getting a custom run as I'm a huge fan of his stuff, if this goes through I would definitely be in for a GMK Good Kid Bad Alien novelty

To be honest I'm not really too sure. Zambumon has like 4 GMK interest checks due to come out in the next year and he's got the in with Massdrop, so this would have to be at an "off-season" time and away from whenever MD's GMK sets are going on, so I really have no clue about a schedule.


I really have to start discussions with possible vendors. I know DonutCat offered some assistance so I'll definitely link up with him at some point!

I also have to be aware of the fact that a BIG issue right now with GMK Carbon Rd2 is the pricing...So I'm going to revisit the kits as best I can to make them as cheap as possible to try and increase the likelihood of hitting MOQ.

but yah TLDR

got some things to do before I figure out a schedule!
