Oof, that is unfortunate that the Novelties are not being sold  :'(

But still looking forward for this keyset!  :thumb:
I believe he is saying that Novelties kit will be sold as is, with no more addition of keys to it.

Ahh sorry, misunderstood what he said. Thank you for clarifying!

Not planning on having a RAMA collab on this. We will be working with KeyForge on an artisan collab for those that join in the buy, so stay tuned for updates on that!

Does this mean that the artisan is going to be a raffle?

Unfortunately the novelties are not going to be added to, due to pricing, but there is a 2uc in the spacebars kit, or always the option to use numpad 0. I realize neither of these are ideal, but in my goal to keep kit prices on the low end some of the less common layouts could not receive accurate legend caps.

Thanks for the reply.

So for those who need R4 2U key, we should get the spacebar kit instead of the novelty kit, right?

And speaking of which, do you have any projected price of the kits? Ballpark figures, perhaps?

That's correct, yes. Pricing on the kits will be coming shortly as well!

Like I don't have enough hard decisions to make :)

Anyway here's hoping that some divine intervention can bring the 2U shift back, and other than that, good luck for the IC/GB!

honestly the contrast of the blue is so weak that I missed all alpha colored spacebars in that pack initially. Only when I saw that it contains 11 keys I realized there are alpha colored spacebars in it

I would like to know more about this too. I adore Keyforge artisans but I have only ever won one raffle. It would be incredible if those that join the buy actually have more than a cursory chance at getting a matching artisan from Keyforge.

It'll most likely be raffle. It'll probably be whoever purchases a set has a chance to win one.

Oh man, I was just thinking over earlier if I want to get this or the GMK Oblivion set. My wallet will not like the next few months.

Do they typically reduce the price if it exceeds a certain MOQ like the ones in MD?

Typically not on these smaller boutique buys, since it is fairly rare to reach MD levels of kits, but that doesn't mean there arent other ways. Bento is close (or maybe already) at the 500 base kit threshold, and i know that there are plans to add some keys to the kit as a bonus.

Oooh that sounds promising. Either way I'm definitely in on this GB.

Would love to, but massdrop is the only vendor that can even come close enough to a MOQ to get those made. Smaller buys like this aren't able to even come close.

I would drop a lot extra for an International / NORDE Kit, any possibility to still get it? :D

Pretty sure you'd have to pay 100x to make it hit the cost at which it is worth GMK producing it, so if that's your idea of "a lot extra" you may be in luck.

Out of the current ongoing offerings, I don't think you can find a better set to start with!

Honestly some of the stuff I'm seeing is amazing. This is going to be a present to myself for quiting cigarettes. Looks like I've found a new thing to spend 300$ on every month!

Who should I contact, to see how much it would really cost? :) I might consider it :P

The cost would be... much. Spitballing off of the recent WoB NORDEUK IC which is ~50 caps? Taking away what is already covered in this base for UK leaves say, 45ish caps. It would likely be priced around $60 USD at an MOQ of 100... so $6,000. Bear in mind this is by no means an accurate quote, but is an educated guess on my part. It could be lower or higher potentially.
