Hiya Friends! My name is Nephlock, and I can't tell you how excited I am to be here and personally introduce this community to my newest keycap set, GMK Kaiju! A bit about Kaiju When I first thought about designing Kaiju, I knew I wanted it to be a bit outlandish, something that went against the grain of what most other keysets had been doing. I looked to colors that hadn't appeared in keysets often, combo them together to make something striking and unique, and yet still evoke the energy present in those monster movies of its namesake—All while providing a bit of fun for your keyboard. Between the vibrant color palette and the subtle novelties I've had an absolute blast designing and bringing this set to life, and I hope that you will join me in enjoying Kaiju on your keyboards! About the kits Designing a keyset and the subsequent child kits always comes with some tough decisions. What do I put in for coverage? What do I leave out so prices don't get out of hand? Which keycaps are better suited to a child kit vs. the base kit? A lot of it comes down to give and take... If I add another cap or two, which do I take away? That said, I have done my absolute best (along with feedback from many of you!) to think and cover the angles to provide kits that make sense, are reasonably priced, and provide the opportunity to experience the fun this set has to offer.  Many of your boards will already be covered, but if you're unsure, the descriptions of each kit will give you an idea of what coverage is provided or added. If you have any questions about it feel free to ask myself, or the community in here, there should be plenty of support to go around!  No Ergo/Ortho/Language/etc. kits? Some keysets provide kits for Ergo, Ortho, Dvorak, Nordeuk, Etc., and some don't. A lot of this comes down to me as the designer to decide on, and I have chosen not to run any of those kits. My primary decision there is from Interest Check feedback, and that was not frequent enough for me to feel comfortable in those kits succeeding. To those of you who were, and are, excited for Kaiju but disappointed in the fact those kits don't exist I apologize. I look forward to interacting with all of you, so if you have any questions or wish to ask anything to me directly, please tag me @Nephlock or reply here. Until then, stay vigilant! Rawr, Nephlock

Love this. Thank you everyone that showed up for this keyset, and helped make it a reality! Can't wait to see it on your boards later this year!

Looks great! I'm stoked to get my hands on it. I don't think I've seen a kaiju themed anything for boards so I'm thrilled to do a Godzilla theme

Is it possible to add the warnings kit to my order now? I realized that I have some keys that aren't covered by the base kit... :)

I have placed an order for a basic one as well as the warnings one, but i got billed only for the basic, is it possible to correct my order for the initial one? Or maybe its a website mistake? I can redo it again if you could kindly allow this. Thank you!

Right, and I could just slap another key from the kit on there?

Yeah. Only if it is a single unit key, and if you're anal about it. Make sure the row profile matches (use a key that has the same profile as the bottom row)

Is the Sept 30 ship date possible? considering GMK's huge backlog, unless Drop has already secured the production spot. @Elbert

Drop got GMK Pulse out faster than the other sets that month so it's possible they manage it again. Other vendors have noted that even the transmit time is notably longer with delays. Delays aren't the worst that could happen either. GMK apparently forgot banderoles for WoB Hiragana and so people (at least in the USA) aren't getting them. If QC-particularly in terms of key quality-drops in an effort to rush no ones gonna be happy. If I ran a store I'd probably say something like "Q4 2020", and if you had it out October first...still counts! There's some monster sets in between as well-Dracula is still in color matching and is behind Camping, add in Olivia++ and there's 9000 base kits between them. Late September supposes that they'll make it through that backlog and reach times that they had pre-Covid.

I answered your question. How is that a nonanswer? It was also not intended to be condescending, so if you took it that way, I apologize. You were apparently looking for some deeper answer than yes, it's possible to ship by Sept 30.

New to all the keyboard stuff. If I buy this rn, I see that there is an estimated shipping date which is september 20 (if my my memory serves me correct). Is that when all of the orders get shipped or can you get yours early? would really want this keycap set since they cancelled my order on a different website but my patience would kill me waiting 6 months for a keycap set. @Nephlock
