Hi guys,

Yesterday a friend gave feedback that he found an issue in one key of the Novelties kit: he received a scooped homing Emacs key, which should be a non-scooped key in R3 profile. As marked in the following picture:



Then I checked with many other friends (since I had not received my sets) with what they got and it seemed to be an error for overall units. I had communicated with SP and Kono about this. SP would re-make this key in correct shape for a fix and send out the replacements to Kono next week. Later Kono should ship the fixed keys for your order of this kit. So should the other vendors. If you have any question or you don't receive the fixed key later for a long time, please contact your vendor.

Really sorry about this.

For reference: the correct layout of Novelties kit

Just noticed my blue \ key has a defect. The white plastic is showing through to the blue part. Would it be possible to go about getting a replacement keycap?

Gotcha. Just sent Kono an email. Fingers crossed. It wouldn't bother me if it where on the back, but it's visible where it's at in the front.

It seemed Zfrontier had not started the shipping for international orders. I knew from a few friends that their orders were not shipped yet

Well my GB got ruined. My order was in fulfillment since Nov 6th so i sent an email about whats going on, apparently my order shipped,postal service didnt scan it and now its gone forever. Only thing i got offered was a refund or wait for the next GB. I waited a year and spent 300$ for nothing, I am so disappointed and now i have a blue Kira80 that i cant finish. Sad days.

Really sad to hear about it. And as some discussion in thread, kono will re-run some popular kits soon.

Not necessarily. If you have a tracking number, check with the delivery service with the tracking number. It may not be a lost cause.

Hey folks, I dunno if I'm dreaming or what but seems like Kono is selling extras of a few kits on their store.  I put an order in for the choices I was looking for so I guess we'll see what happens...  Anybody else notice this?


EDIT:  Says they shipped today so it must be real!

I just got reply from Alex (support@zfrontier). He said that he will send the replacement for me by the end of the week!  ;D

Has anyone who ordered through Mykeyboard.eu actually received their order yet?

I mailed them about a month ago; they responded that they'd be shipping out "soon". I'm still waiting, and they haven't responded to email since.

Yesterday a friend gave feedback that he found an issue in one key of the Novelties kit: he received a scooped homing Emacs key, which should be a non-scooped key in R3 profile. As marked in the following picture:

Then I checked with many other friends (since I had not received my sets) with what they got and it seemed to be an error for overall units. I had communicated with SP and Kono about this. SP would re-make this key in correct shape for a fix and send out the replacements to Kono next week. Later Kono should ship the fixed keys for your order of this kit. So should the other vendors. If you have any question or you don't receive the fixed key later for a long time, please contact your vendor.

Really sorry about this.

For reference: the correct layout of Novelties kit

For my own order, I got the replacement key for this R3 Emacs novelty today from Zfrontier



A friend told me that Zfrontier held his order(on Zfrontier's international site) until Zfrontier received this replacement keys from SP. And then Zfrontier shipped his order along with the replacement key a few days ago. Now he already received everything.

I have no idea whether Mykeyboard.eu was doing the same thing to delay shipping until they got the replacement keys too. But I suppose you should get both your order and replacement keys sooner or later no matter what. If you have question with your order, please contact your vendor.

Thanks!

Zfrontier has shipped my orders with the replacement key on 13th and I've received them yesterday (here Australia) so it was super fast. They also did me a favor by letting me order one more kit from extras (numpad kit), and bundled it with my original orders. So far I've got nothing short of amazing support from Alex and Zfrontier team.

I don't have the novelty set in my order, so if mykeyboard.eu is holding orders waiting for novelty replacements, it seems they're simply holding *all* orders, esp. if nobody else has gotten anything from them either.

Just FTR, I'm not at all blaming you, hhkbp2 - I understand this is entirely outside your control. I'm just a bit annoyed with mykeyboard.eu for not bothering to respond to mail after having me wait a full month after my first question to them.

Really sorry to hear that. It's not rare for a vendor to hold or delay shipment due to issues, but it's too bad to disappear from responding.

Kono sent out emails for the replacement key of Novelties Emacs. If you placed your order(with Novelties kit) in Kono, please contact them for that.
