Hello everyone, update for you.

This group buy will be running on May 15 to May 29. Yes. 13 Days from today.

I bring a few changes to refine the kits. Deskmats are in the works.

All changes are reflected in the renders on the main post.

Thank you for your support.

List o' Changes
The leaf, bag, and fossil have been modified to be less IP heavy.
225 Fishing rod novelty has been sized to fit a 1.5 novelty now.
A variation of fishing novelties has been added to 1.5 and is mirrored across the sides.
1.25 Fishing novelty has also been mirrored.
Added blue 1.25 Shift to Extension Kit for 40s users who will use this on the right side.
Added green 1.75 Shift for 40s users to use on the left side.
Added blue 1.00 Shift to Extension kit for Minivan users that will use this on the right side.
Changed blue 2u Shift to green as this is actually used on the left side.
Added brown accented leaf to novelties for 40s users to use as an escape novelty.
Added blue tilde-grave.
Added blue and green (whatever the name of that) ISO key.
Moved accent arrows and numpad enter to add on kit.
Removed 1.5u "Function" keys from Add On kit, as there is already a 1.5u Alt and Fn in Base Kit.
Centered icons.

Canadian Proxy Added: Deskhero

Art Caps
For this set I will be working with:

Alpha Keys: https://www.instagram.com/alphakeycaps/
Archetype: https://www.instagram.com/archetype_mk/

-What are the RAL or Pantone colors codes you are using? And, more specifically, what colors are you color-matching for the blue, green, and brown?
Any answer for this?
Mostly worried about getting a set with colors that didn't look anything like the renders.

edit : Would you consider getting samples as well?

Shame about the changed novelties, but I like seeing 1.5u ones. Seemed strange only one shift had a novelty.
Still no ISO novelty, but oh well.
Hyped as f for it.

Unfortunate there's no non-brown option for the modifiers. Might still be a pickup though, don't see anyone else doing the NH colorway in the future.

Looks like this will be my first PBT set in 2 years. Glad this set was so fleshed out that you were able to hit the ground running and get a GB date really quick! Can't wait to see the set in person! :D

From what I read Gok sent you the files for the 7V render is it possible to render this set with the 7V in E-white? since I'm getting the 7V and your set, it would be awesome!

Trying to figure out, does the base or expansion come with a 2U right shift key? The base keys aren't labeled with sizes so I am not sure. Trying to see if I can get it to fit my ducky one 2 SF that uses a 2u right Shift.

The Key Company site has the sizes in the screenshots at https://thekey.company/collections/group-buys/products/infinikey-pbt-islander. You'll need the expansion kit for the 2u right shift.

I also note The Key Company still has some images with the older version of the leaf that had some questionable IP issues. Hopefully, those images won't upset a certain company.

Um.

The 2u shift in the expansion kit is a left shift. It's green. I think frostrambler might be out of luck.

Prototypist.net

Prototypist is UK. If these doesn't ship until next year and there's a hard Brexit, Europeans have to pay import taxes.

Prototypist is UK. If these doesn't ship until next year and there's a hard Brexit, Europeans have to pay import taxes.

Someone had similar concerns about GMK Bleached. Here is what Jae had to say:
Proto[Typist] is acting as lead vendor on this one, doing the negotiating with GMK etc and running the GB with the designer after talking about the project at a UK meetup and is effectively a UK community project.

I understand the concerns, and GMK timelines still show the set shipping in October. From delivery to buyer shipping turnaround will be 1 day, so its highly likely that shipping will occur in 2020 and we will be working with GMK to achieve that.

Whilst you are right that we dont know the UK's position within the EU and any shipping / VAT or other constraints in 2021, there are contingency plans in place to ensure that shipping can be conducted without inference of additional fees should delivery of the GMK sets take place in 2021. 

Also, VAT will be paid on these items at point of sale where it is due; and will be marked as such when shipped if any delays push the delivery into 2021. The GB takes place as an EU transaction at the moment and is bound by the single market and customs union rules. Those rules state that goods sold under them should only be inclusive of VAT once. There will be many many businesses that sell something in 2020 that ships and is delivered after the changes take place; and both the EU and UK have said that those customers should not be impacted.

Finally, its highly likely that the current end-date of Dec 2020 for the UK to formally leave the EU trade agreements will be extended given the impact the Corona Virus has had on the economy and this is something myself and my accountant are paying close attention to.
