I reached out to Kono to ask about the status of Shoko a week ago just to get some kind of feedback, was told Shoko is moving along nicely.

Any updates? Or non-update updates, even?

I got samples in, I hope I color corrected it properly, but I think the picture looks fine for the most part. I also threw in a milky white EPBT keycap for reference next to the alpha Pantone. As well as the RAL 5024 color next to the Pantone 5425C chip. The mods are a bit less saturated than in the renders though.


IDK I think this pic looks better, this one was taken a bit earlier though.


Okay as some may know, Kono got samples, and I didn't get them in until today. So I figured I'd share them on the Pantone chip and I also made a strawpoll. I personally am happy with the samples though, however, I also do want to see the community's opinion before giving it the green light. So answer here right now, please.

I think it looks good, but speaking only for myself, the sharper bluish-gray of the modifiers + alphas is what sort of drew my eye to this colorway to begin with -- I'd like to see a RAL 5024 sample just so we can get a more direct comparison.

Hmm the polls seems pretty close rn, I'll probably let it run for another 18 hours, since the poll started 6 hours ago, and see what the final results are.

In b4 Shoko sells for $500+ base kit. I was so close to joining.
If I see like at least 5 mechmarket posts with that price and they all get sold, the colorway will probably get another IC.

As it didn't reach MOQ, you can expect a lot of extras available.  I know MyKeyboard.eu confirmed extras, Kono is probably the same if you ask. :)

Poll ended, sorry to get back later than I said I would, but it seems like the poll voted in favor of using the current sample, I'll give Kono the green light and we can continue with the group buy. I hope everyone will be happy with the end result!

Since we technically didn't meet MOQ but GMK agreed to have it made anyway, are all of the kits being made or just the base?

I believe all kits are, but let me go check with Kono just to make sure since I know those kits didn't get refunded, so I'm pretty sure they all are being made.

Considering the set was negotiated to be manufactured without meeting MOQ, and the set was not super popular to begin with during GB, I doubt Kono would get any extra, if any. Maybe 2 or 3 sets for replacement at best.
