Pretty sure 112227 already knows that but they want to pay someone to edit the files for them.

Correct! Tesletron reached me on discord and is helping.

Any news and/or updated pics? :)

I am assuming the January ship date will probably be unlikely at this point

Brief update from Tesletron on Discord yesterday:

Quote
Still Aiming for Feb. Plates and Acrylic bases are on the way to me, and the other case parts are still being machined.

Also still waiting on my PCB guy to do what needs to be done for VIA support :/

Not sure when the Jan estimate became Feb, but hopefully it'll ship this month!

Thanks for this. It seems to have a little more up-to-date information from time to time, so it's slightly less dead, I suppose ;)

Another update from Tes yesterday. Sit tight everybody, no need to be upset over delays and such, a delayed game will eventually be good, a rushed game will be forever bad. You'll be shocked upon seeing the sheer volume of parts that tes alone have to manage and QC.

yeah getting updates from discord is pretty common practice for group buys around here. Remember that the group buy runner is literally one person, with a full time job and his own life. This isn't a company with a ton of resources and paid labor. We have gotten updates and pics proving that things are moving, but group buys are not a race, and typically take awhile. You'll be okay, be patient lol.

You'll be okay, be patient lol.

I've seen this argument come up a lot, and I would agree that it's not unheard of, but I don't know if I would call it common.
After all, why even mention the group buy or interest check at all on a forum in the first place?  Because there are more people browsing for these things here than on Discord.
I have always maintained, (and always shall do so) that the majority of updates should be on the medium or service where the majority of buyers found/bought it. 
I agree, it can be a lot of work for one person organizing it all - but all that person has to do is just keep the main info source updated. (Such as this thread.) 
It's not the buyer's responsibility to chase down this information all over the hills.   We know long stretches of time will pass with nothing to report, that's part of the process.  But we also want reassurances that the person running the show hasn't run off with our money, never to be heard from again.  (A worse case scenario, and its happened to me on Kickstarter.)  And all it takes for that reassurance I speak of is for the show runner to just pop in once in awhile, and chime in with a status update. 

I'm not singling out this group buy at all, I've seen others better at communication but others worse by far.  This is just the standard I would hold to myself if I was the person running a similar project.

Iíd prefer seeing updates posted here as well. In terms of supplying group buy info, I donít see how having a separate discord adds any benefits. That being said, the discord is nice to communicate with other buyers but shouldnít be used to release project updates.

yes agree with above. posting here is more official and professional. the discord is full of a ton of unnecessary conversation.

a post every two week even if its just to say "no update" is better than radio silence.

Any updates on the new manufacturer?

I have been notified that new base samples are done, and I am waiting for them to get to me now. Also looking to test corian with the new manufacturer, and completely move operations to the new manu if the bases look as good as the photos they sent me do(being low resolution factory photos).

One cool thing about the new manu for the bases currently is that I am upgrading everyone to PVD brass bases from the original polished brass bases. Once they get here, I will be posting photos with the bases and making a more substantial update. However, here is an image sent to me from the new manu with the brass base: https://imgur.com/fmNhr0Q

Hey all! An update on the overall Lumina situation: We have gotten satisfactory samples of both the Aluminum AND Brass bases (upgraded from Polished Brass to PVD coated) and the pvd brass plates. Aluminum plates are in and ready for the anodization process. Both meet our standards and knowing quality is up to spec, mass production order is being placed. Linked below are pictures of the plates and bases. Acrylic Plates and Bases have been QC'd and are finished. The waldo is now also officially in the QMK configurator.

Now that the plates, bases, And PCBs look to be in a good place, whatís the status on the Corian parts?

Right now, I am currently awaiting the samples of lumina corian parts from the new manu, which I have tracking for. The estimated delivery is Monday, and assuming everything looks good, I will be placing a new order for corian parts. As for leadtime, I am taking extra care to make sure that the quality of this new place is where I want it to be. Given the fact that people have been waiting a while, I want to make sure that what gets shipped out is the best quality I can provide. Until I confirm quality, I will not give a lead time on the corian parts. However, I will be settling all of those details this upcoming week(thankfully).

Samples from new factory came in today, and quality is absolutely above and beyond what I was expecting.  I have tentatively assembled the board to check fit with the other parts, and everything is very comfortable and easy to assemble. Corner Radii fit perfect, threaded inserts are as solid as can be, and production will now move forward at full throttle. Will update with lead time this week. Thank you all again for your patience and support on this project!

Veeeeery nice!  And quite refreshing to hear about a sample coming in without any issues on the first inspection! 
As usual, the wait is always worth it when the quality standards are met.

If it makes you feel any better, since I ordered, I moved into a new place with Corian countertops extremely similar to the Cosmos LOL. Could have had a keeb that matched my house XD

Real talk though, the white is sooooo clean. I think we both made grand decisions.
