There might be a slight delay because it took a little longer than expected to make payment to the manufacturer. I don't know how much that will affect our timeline though since we'd still have been waiting behind other sets in the production queue.

Other than that I believe we're still pretty much on track.

Will any extras be available or has anyone cancelled? If so, I’m interested in both alpha sets, homing keys, numpad, & the 40% kits.

Great, will I buy them directly from you, & will in-stock prices be more than GB price?

Yeah, I just got that update too. It looks like they won't be shipping the sets this month unfortunately :(

We're waiting on more details from the manufacturer so IDK how much of a delay we're looking at. Hopefully it won't be too long.

Delays are never good; however, I look at this as a positive to ensure that I will be able to purchase extras when they arrive @ DixieMech

Hopefully the delay is an indicator that they found an issue in QC and are correcting it, rather than shipping it out anyway.

I think the delay is from placing the order with the manufacturer late.

Delays are a normal part of any keyboard-related GB. I don't think I've ever joined one that didn't experience a delay of some sort. This is par for the course and not cause for concern. I'm not even sure I can call it disappointing since I was never expecting it to hit its original deadlines to begin with.

I still haven't heard anything since the last update. Canvas also hasn't shipped yet and it ran a month before this, so IDK how much longer we'll have to wait.

Well, FWIW, XDA Canvas got problems with one of their kits and had to delay production for 3 weeks. They plan to ship around Dec 7..

Hi, OP.

XDA Canvas just got delayed to Dec23rd. Can you check whether that would affect our XDA Oblique? Both sets are being made at the same factory, right?

Thanks.

Given the delays on Canvas, I think we should expect Oblique some time in early February.

I'll ask. I still haven't heard back whether it was the canvas delays that caused our delays in the first place, but I'll follow up on that.

Blanks are definitely the same factory, there is only one factory with XDA moulds. I'm not sure what dyesubber Canvas is using though, but it may well be the same too.

Bleak, perhaps, but realistic. I dare say I was being pretty optimistic even with that prediction. Delays of months, even years, is not uncommon in this business.

The manufacturer has said they hope to be finished before the Chinese New year, so the new estimated ship date is end of January.

Sorry about the delays guys :( I'll keep you updated if anything changes
