Not sure if I made the right decision in not joining.
It's easy to feel that way when buying stuff like this, and I can definitely relate.
About a year or two ago, I joined a group buy for a set of keycaps, and at the time I was very unsure of if they were worth it or not. I decided to join it anyways, and even a few weeks after the group buy ended I really felt some major buyers remorse, but time moved on, and I had even forgotten that I had ordered them until I got an email telling me they were about to ship. And as soon as I finished reading the email, I had a huge smile on my face, and once I finally received them, I was even happier. And even now I'm very happy that I joined the group buy. But ever since then, I've probably spent $1k on group buys alone, and I plan and spending more in the future. Call me crazy if you want, but this can be a very enjoyable hobby.
If you like mechanical keyboards already, then you have no reason to worry, as these keycaps will last you for years. And if for some reason you find tha you don't like them as much as you thought you would, there is always /r/mechmarket you can sell them on
That's the nice thing about custom GMK and SP sets, for the most part they never depreciate in value, so even if you decide to sell your kits down the road chances are at the very least you can make your money back.
