[GB] GMK DMG - A Gameboy inspired keyset FINAL DAY MOQ REACHED
« on: Mon, 12 November 2018, 17:07:45 »




Christmas morning 1989. Many of us tore into a wrapped package containing one of these and played it tirelessly until you ran out of AA batteries. Or until it got dark. Or until our parents yelled at us to take out the trash or shovel snow.
GMK DMG is our take on this classic. Bring a bit of nostalgia to your battlestation or workspace.



BASE KIT - $169.00

Includes 156 keys to cover a majority of the most popular layouts including 104, TKL, 1800, HHKB, FC660, 60% and many more. ISO enter and complimenting keys are also included, as well as 6.25u and 7u spacebars.
Featuring a variety of novelty keys that bring nostalgia including the A/B buttons, D-Pad arrow cluster, Battery indicator cap, and START SELECT mods. Just like you remember it!
MOQ 250 units

POCKET KIT - $48.00

Due to the ever-increasing popularity of 40% keyboards, we've given the 40% layout its own kit. Cost minded and small, the 40s kit offers a nice compliment to fill out your CandyBar, MiniVan, MechMini, JD40, Planck (and others) with the proper keys. While not all variations on the layout are represented in order to keep the price affordable, we think we did a pretty good job of giving you what you need. MOQ 100 units


SPACE KIT - $22.00

The spacebar kit includes a variety of the most popular spacebar sizes in DMG's complimentary color (Gameboy Button Magenta). MOQ 100 units

Includes 6.25u, 7u, 6u Center Stem, Convex 1u (x2) and 2u, as well as standard 2.25u and 2.75u blanks.


ACCESSORIES

We have Gameboy themed deskmats, mousepads and stickers available:  https://thekey.company/collections/gb-gmk-dmg/products/dmg-deskmats-stickers
We also have matching cables from the finest cable maker on the scene - Zap Cables: https://thekey.company/collections/gb-gmk-dmg/products/dmg-themed-cables-by-zapcables.
We're also working with a couple of great artisan makers to make some DMG themed artisans so watch this space.




ABOUT THE KIT
   
Designed by u/futurecrime
    Manufactured by GMK in Germany
    Long Lasting 1.5mm Thick Doubleshot ABS Plastic
    GMK Cherry Profile
    Renders by Janglad


The set will be color matched by GMK to an actual Gameboy!







TIMELINE
   
GB Runs for 4 weeks. Lead time I expect is 16 - 20 weeks because of the holidays and the color matching process (Im being very generous).
2019 will be the thirtieth anniversary of the Gameboy's launch, a perfect time to dress your keyboard up to celebrate.

It's too expensive Jason.
There are so many unnecessary keys in the base kit.
13 novelty keys, 2 scroll locks, 4 different caps lock/control keys, 2 iso enters, 00 key.

It may not sound that bad, but when you count all of them together it's quite a lot of keys that increase the. 'base' price.

I really want to get this set, but I'm not at all confident it will hit MOQ with such an expensive base kit. Modern dolch was just $145 and it sold really well, even carbon on massdrop is having a tough time at $169.

So does one need the pocket kit and spacebars kit to cover 2x2u spacebars? It looks like there's only one 2u in the spacebars kit, or possibly that the 2.25u is missing.

I really like the set, but far too expensive imo. This would be perfect as a JTK set. The new JTK HyperFuse set includes the base plus 2 add-on kits for $95.

Joined the buy. How are the numbers looking for day 1.
Also is it still possible to add a stepped cap locks without led screen? Almost all other gmk sets I owned have them, what is the rational behind removing it? Cheers.

Samples won't get made until the order is submitted, but rest assured I wouldn't approve a sample until I'm 100% happy with it.


So does one need the pocket kit and spacebars kit to cover 2x2u spacebars? It looks like there's only one 2u in the spacebars kit, or possibly that the 2.25u is missing.

Yes you'd need both kits. Thanks for pointing this out, the spacebar kit render does appear to be incorrect, we've requested a new one from GMK. It should have 1 each of 2u, 2.25u and 2.75u.

Thanks for joining, Oko. Base kit is currently around 60 sold I believe. And sorry about the non-window stepped capslock, it was lost in the post IC survey cap re-jig.

The kit was featured on Kotaku!

https://kotaku.com/now-your-keyboard-can-match-your-game-boy-1830406577

From the article,

 "Or you could just wait until around April 2019, when the sets hit the street and folks start selling them on Reddit’s Mechmarket."

I don't like that they said this since it assumes this will hit MOQ and people should just ignore the fact that the group buyers are the one's who really made it happen and they can just come later and reap the benefits. They should have put more emphasis on joining the group buy and really contributing to it rather than waiting for resellers when the set ships and people realize how great it looks.

Every time I see people buying 4+ sets for reselling purpose, I always feel so glad :). As long as they help us to achieve the MOQ and unlock the next price tier, I don't see that being any different than what a vendor would do. We need more of those guys in our community to help bring costs down for real, especially with all the price increasing trend with both SP and GMK  :))

Right? If it's a limited number of sets available, then that would be a different story. But since these are all pre-production, the more number of sets get ordered, the better the price would be available for all of us. So hell yes, if anyone is interested in picking up 50 sets for flipping purpose, but all mean, help yourself out lol

Ok right so just to clarify, these sets won't be available on r/mm if we don't hit MOQ so if anyone feels like buying 5, 10, or 250 sets please be my guest.

In other news, the set is now up at mykeyboard.eu:

Thanks guys I appreciate the support. I think we're around 70 base sold, which is behind where we'd like to be at this point tbh, but not dead in the water. I'll get solid figures off Jason probably after the weekend, he's crazy busy at the moment nevermind the fact that it's Thanksgiving.

In the meantime I advise everyone to take their Black Friday money and invest in this set instead of some unspectacular tech offer for some crap you don't really need that will only lose value anyway.  :-*

We're in the last week and I am curious how it's looking. I don't really have the funds for a second, but if we're close I can try to see about pulling something together.

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates. Here is where we stand:

Base: 92
Pocket: 21
Space: 62 

The numbers arent great, but Ive committed to buying up to 75 sets with my own money, and zF has committed to 35. That being said, we need 48 more base kits to sell to hit MOQ. Thats nothing! I propose to extend the GB by one week to give extra time. If you want to make this set happen, spread the word, and help us hit!

*If we dont hit MOQ I will offer the option to still have the stickers and desk mats made, and issue refunds promptly.

I'd like to draw attention to the novelties in this kit because they're not explicitly listed in the GB post and they're scattered around the base kit image a bit. There's FIFTEEN novelty caps in the base kit. FIF-TEEN. One Five. But some of them are quite subtle, so here's the list:

2x 1u R4 button novelties on alpha colour.
2x 1u R4 button novelties on mod colour.
2x 1.25u R4 button novelties on mod colour.
D-pad arrow cluster w/ mod colour legends on N9 base.
1x 1u R4 Start novelty on mod colour.
1x 1u R4 Select novelty on mod colour.
1x 1.25u R4 Start novelty on mod colour.
1x 1.25u R4 Select novelty on mod colour.
1x 1u R1 battery novelty on mod colour windowed cap.

This set could make MOQ and become a reality, but we're not quite there yet and time is getting tight so if you're on the fence, please do jump off it and squash that checkout button like a koopa trooper. This is gonna be a fine way to celebrate the Gameboy's thirtieth birthday.

Any updates on artisan collaborations?  Maybe that is the spicy detail this GB needs!

We're still expecting collabs with Hot Keys Project and Keyforge but no samples to reveal yet. The Hot Keys Project caps will include some of that green screen goodness to complete the look.

Oh man I hope we make it!  If people do the math, your chances of getting one of these would be pretty good if it's done via raffle/random.

I really dig it but at 189USD is just too much for my wallet. Base kit is way too large for anything I'd be putting it on.

I propose to extend the GB by one week to give extra time.

I'll pick up an extra set from ZF if the GB gets extended 'til the 17th

Thanks for the love, guys.

any confirmation on the extension?

The base kit is $169 USD, not $189 USD, but yes it is a large kit.

 I mentioned this in Discord, but I wonder if people are skeptical that this set will look good because of the low contrast between text and background on the mods in the renders. There is probably a non-trivial number of people who are relatively new to keyboards, for whom this would be a slam-dunk buy, but who don't have a good sense for how renders translate into ABS plastic,  and are turned off by the contrast thing.

If people are worried about this I'd like to put their minds at rest. The mod colour is the trickiest to match to the Gameboy as it's based on the reflective screen surround rather than abs plastic like the rest of the colours, so I'll be erring on the side of legibility when approving that colour.

My friends, we are still not in the clear yet. I am going to be buying some sets myself to help towards nudging us over the line. Jason TKC is being amazing and buying A LOT more extras than usual. I know some of you have bought multiple sets as well so thank you all so much for going the extra mile. We're all stretching to help make this set a reality and it would be a real shame to fall just short. So yeah, anyone else still left on the fence about this, go get yourself a set before Friday. It's going to be a beautiful thing to have on your keyboard and if you don't get it now you'll either never get the chance, or you'll be paying a premium on r/MM. We can do it people!

So I'm like 80% going to buy this set (budget restrictions, and this set ain't cheap), but to make my decision more clear, could you please specify qualitatively what colors you are going for?  I know you said you will send GMK a Gameboy to color-match, but since they come in different conditions and degrees of yellowing, I thought I'd ask. What I mean is, the renders show more "white" alphas than Gameboy DMG seems to be on google images.  Are the alphas going to be lighter / darker / or about the same as your typical classic Cherry beige doubleshot alphas?  Kind of cream beige or more toward gray?  The schematic render calls them "gray", but they are clearly not neutral gray.

Also curious how the magenta will come out.  Those magenta accents as well as the dark gray arrow cluster make up the majority of my interest in this set, but I'm still curious about the rest.

Sure. The Gameboy I've bought is in excellent condition and doesn't have any yellowing as far as I can tell. The outside of the case matches the inside of the battery compartment. I have another Gameboy which certainly has started to take on a little of that dingy DMG look and the one I've bought is noticeably brighter. Comparing directly here with my beige GMK under halogen lights, I'd say they're of fairly similar brightness but certainly less cream and more towards grey. I'd call it greige if I wasn't aware of how serious this stuff can get.  I couldn't get a Pantone close enough that I was happy with for this colour, so I won't state one here. However I did find close matches for the magenta and purple, which were Pantone 235c and 2745c respectively. Huge caveat here of course as these were Pantones from colour cards, not from plastic chips, and they were compared to a plastic Gameboy, in a bright studio, and now anyone inclined to look them up will most likely be looking at varying results from a google search on whatever monitor they're using and however that's calibrated, etc, etc. Anyway, I hope that helps somewhat and, of course, I hope you join.

GTFO i need that to go with this set. fack though i was done till the new year but perhaps not.

Board was only a proof of concept at the moment. Thus it looks really unfinished. Stay tuned.

I think it would look better if it has a bigger chin? Especially with the angled corner. But that's just my opinion...  ;D

Agreed, concept is fantastic, and would be so amazing with this keyset. Was eyeing either wilba's thermal case and the dolch.cr as options, though they're both a while away, but this seems even better. Look forward to seeing more details!

It's weird seeing a Game Boy without scratches all over the buttons and screen.

Out of curiosity, did Jason work some magic on that Pocket kit? I didn't expect it to go. :)

I believe he did perform a Christmas miracle, yes. I'm honestly so pleased it went through, cos I think it'll look really nice on 40s, and it kinda fits the theme y'know, what with them being compact little things.

I'll have to leave this one open for Jason to answer cos I'm not involved with it I'm afraid.

Oh good! The pocket kit was a little pricy so I didn't pick it up during the GB, but I've been sort of second-guessing myself since -- it's nice to know I might be able to grab it from a vendor later on.

Really glad to hear pocket went through - so hard to find all of that compatibility in most GMK sets! :D

Any word of whether GMK has gotten started with the process of colour matching?

I could swear I'd just seen a TKC status update saying that they had but I'm having trouble finding it....

Edit: oh wait here we go it was on the r/mm post about their new katakana set IC... https://reddit.com/r/mechmarket/comments/aezgb3/ic_katakana_cherry_pbt_sets_by_tkc/
