Here's hoping the gray and spacebar kits get made. Thank you to the designer and operators of this GB.  ;D

Any update on the status of the Grey and Spacebar kits? Not trying to rush things or be obnoxious; I just happen to have quite a bit of funds tied up in this that I'd like to devote to other GBs very soon if they are freed up.

Numbers are in GMK's hands and we're waiting anxiously to hear back. It's definitely stressful considering those kits only hit about 60 units each, but I'm hoping that the base kit hitting almost 230 units is enough to convince them.

In other news, I would like to issue an apology in regards to how the ordering process was done on my end of this GB. I'm definitely familiar with the fact that people's finances can get in the way of participating in GBs, especially on the schedules that they run on, and I was hoping that using the pre-order system would be a way to help alleviate part of that struggle. Unfortunately this ended up causing more issues than it solved due to the large number of order invoices that simply went ignored and ended up delaying the buy while I tried to wait them out to hit the kit numbers we needed. I try to be tolerant and understanding(for the most part, I'm working on resolving instances where I'm not) of situations people are in that can cause issues with their ability to pay, and if you ask anyone that has made an effort to contact me in regards to not being able to pay until after the buy ends or can only partially pay at that time, I'm more than willing to work with them. The problem comes up when people submit orders and then just ignore every attempt I make to contact them in regards to it when they don't pay the invoices *they agreed to pay*, and I'm stuck trying to figure out if I should wait on orders to try and hit our MOQs or when to cut them off. I would like to still have a way available to make GBs more accessible to those who can't afford to have their money tied up for the GB period, but at this time there's just no good way to do this without the possibility of running into the issues we did. Until a way is found to resolve this, future buys through me will have to stick to the standard method of paying when you order.

Well, for everyone that's been waiting on the edge of their seats, we finally have some news:

GMK have decided that they will be producing the Spacebar and Grey/Shadow kits even though they only hit about 60 each!

Awesome! Very excited to put together my black and white and grey build. The addition of grey makes the set look even more monochromatic than it otherwise would; almost like a black and white photo.

Any idea on timing? I know there was some delay in getting all the invoices paid and the order submitted, so was curious if we had an updated ETA from GMK.

Sooo excited for this!

Yes, the spacebar kit should have bother 2.25u and 2.75u keys.

Out of curiosity, is there any other place that they do news update or should I just keep this thread bookmarked?

This is probably the best place, I haven't managed to find a "newsletter" addon I'm happy with yet, so for now the forum posts for the set will be the most up to date.

Speaking of being up to date, all payments to GMK should be in their hands by now, and we've received an estimated ship date from them of mid-late December, which is noticeably earlier than expected given the usual GMK timeline for production.

Great news! Just make sure, my payment still shows as processing and want to know if that's normal. This and the KOYU are the only two group buys that's I've done and want to make sure I'm just at the waiting phase with no issues.

That's the latest word as of this Monday, anyways, so I'm optimistic!

No samples since we're using stock colors. Currently just waiting on GMK production.

Definitely will be extras, particularly the base kit.

You can't purchase it anymore but Donut said there will be extra base kits once the GB is finished. You can grab one then or wait until folks offload to mechmarket.

With Christmas I won't be able to get Metaverse out before the end of the New Year. Also, I have yet to receive RAMA keycaps so those orders will also have to wait a little longer.
