Wow, 1500 base set is no easy task.  It speaks volumes how great a set metropolis is.

Bummed I didn't get a KF invoice, but with this many sets sold I knew the odds weren't in my favor. Congrats Neph on the 1500+ base kits sold. That is absolutely massive, especially for a non MD gb. Very impressive.

Got an invoice but noticed it a bit late!  :eek:
Ended up paying it ~30 hrs after receiving it. Hope that wasn't too late.

I'm curious, anyone know how many artisans were made for Metropolis or how many peopled signed up to the raffle?

Here are the first samples from GMK!

Overall i think GMK did a great job. My initial notes are that the teal and the yellow, while close to the mark, have lost some of their saturation and need to be pumped up a bit.

looks great but paper samples for plastic colors makes me nervous

this seems like a set that's not super sensitive to color matching though so it'll likely be fine

nvm its a RAL book not a pantone book ur good

Looks good. I agree that especially the teal, but also the yellow look a little washed out and could use some saturation.

This is correct. If you look through the Imgur album it tells what the comparison keys are. I included caps from some current keysets to give people more of a sense of the color

I missed the vote for what additional keys were possibly going to be added to the base kit. Obviously I can't vote anymore, but does anyone have a list of all the keys that were options in the poll?

I _think_ the options were 1) accent keys, 2) extended compatibility, 3) novelties, 4) 40s kit. I do not remember exactly what the keys were, though (some examples were specified).

This is correct. What we ended up doing was providing a few crucial keys across all those areas so that everyone could get something they’d like :)

Red is notoriously difficult to capture faithfully, it often comes out more saturated than it really is. I'd not worry about it too much ;-)

Interestingly enough, red is also one of the hardest colors to keep accurate when compressed digitally.  It doesn’t compress as well as other colors.
A good example of this difficulty can be found in early dvds - and its very obvious in them when they used red text on end credits. (There’s usually a lot of color bleeding)

Sorry for being off topic a bit, just thought I’d share that little bit of trivia.

Anyone else a little disappointed we didn't get a yellow f5-f8 key? I guess a lot of people use 40%-65% boards so it doesn't really matter for them.

This was an area that I went through some debate on. Had I included the yellow f5-8 keys in the base, that would have meant adding 4 additional keys to the midnight kit in order to keep coverage. Ultimately I decided that by making the whole F-row uniform in the base we could keep the cost of both kits appropriate. Hope you understand :)

Yeah that makes complete sense. I'm still super stoked for these keycaps! It's my first GMK set :)

The dark blue to me is a tad too saturated though. Would look black in indoor lighting imo.

You can get a Metro-themed cable from me(www.spaztikcables.com) once I start accepting orders again. Fulfilling the cable GB is taking most of my time so it might be a month or so before that happens.

Got my deskmats today. The large one looks great, but what's up with the messed up aspect ratio on the smaller one? All the "circles" are clearly oval. It looks like the middle portion of the large deskmat was resized horizontally to fit on the small deskmat. Pretty disappointed with that...
