Is there any chance the color sample will be provided before the GB ends?

GMK can be real slow, I wouldn't count on it.

Trying to get samples in the weeks we have left is a bit too ambitious. Bento was able to start colors early as well, and only recently began receiving samples.

Yea, it is highly unlikely that we will have color samples before this ends.

Is that so? I've joined in the GB, just hoping the final product won't be like GMK Phantom.

Will we get another update on kit counts soon?  I'm interested to see how we're doing beyond the first few days.

Quick update:

GMK has better accuracy matching to the RAL color space, so i have selected the chips that we will be using as our final color matching!

The Core Four:


Blue Black Comparison:


The caps below are GMK WoB, and SA Abyss for comparison.

Matching to these samples will get us most of the way there on accuracy, and then i'll be able to fine tune as the first production samples come in from GMK.

Also, just want to say that NovelKeys will buy out any missing sets to get Midnight to hit MOQ! :) although, I doubt we will need to by the end of the GB with the way the numbers are going.

Any possibilities of price drop at higher MoQ?  Particularly for Sings?  Want it, but hard to pull the trigger at 50 bucks  :eek:

No price drops as far as I know apart from signs may go down to 56 euro for Europe, and if we hit moq more caps may be added as a bonus!

That would be very nice. The signs kit seems to be disproportionately more expensive compared to the euro/dollar prices of the other kits.

Yeah, I mentioned that right at the start. It's the reason I'm staying out so far, since without Signs kit what's the point and with it it's bloody expensive...
MOQ means Minimum Order Quantity. You either reach it or you don't, there's no "pushing for higher MOQ", just pushing for more orders.

We just got in contact with mykeyboard, and the novelties were set at 100 MOQ instead of 150. The pricing for those has been adjusted now :)

GMK Necro had a similar lottery process for a chance to purchase an exclusive Necro themed Fugu artisan by EatTheFood.
Those artisans were $80, and you bought them sight unseen - not knowing what they even looked like.  I'm glad we can see what they look like here in advance, because they're not cheap purchases!

This will be limited to one entry per person, and that a base kit is required for entry.

Since the Ďidentifierí is the order number, how do you ensure that a person with multiple order numbers is sieved out? Although, it would also make sense if people buying more sets are given more chances.

Also, the raffle is open for international folks as well yeah?

Quick little numbers update. Some numbers are outdated from proxies. But here are the totals without extras being purchased.

Base - 524
Midnight - 101
Signs - 367
Blocks - 248

With extras we are looking pretty close with the current purchase rate to hit 1,000! If we hit 1,000 base, Nephlock will be brainstorming some keycaps to add to the base kit.

Thanks to everyone who joined so far. This is a really exciting GB for us to be a part of!

In for a base, midnight and blocks. Hopefully the artisan too ;) Will the people who won the raffle just be emailed by the email they purchased with? Sorry, I'm sure you are sick of answering questions about the damn artisan, lol.

EDIT: Also my first post and first group buy, huzzah!
