This looks fantastic! Congrats!

I just wish there was a 40% kit, but I can make it work without one.

FWIW to those scrolling the forum and may not necessarily visit your geo store: there’s a Bentou Keebwerk Nano as well.

if the kobe doesn’t hit the 150 MOQ is it still going to be made?

Vendors will get extras to ensure that it’s gonna be produced!

Are the deskpads coming for this set at some point?

Yes, but it will be after the GB most likely.

Also, as mentioned before, there won’t be any price cut, so I decided to add some extra novelties into the base kit (since the base kit production cost is now lowered).
GMK has to confirm me the amount but apparently, I could add 3 to 5 novelties. I immediatly thought about the Torii I made for the Nano Bentō but I also have some unused legends.

I’ll let you know :slight_smile:

You guys went nuts! The GB was a blast :slight_smile:
Thanks for the amazing support!

I’ll post the final numbers soon.
Here are the novelties that I would like to add in the base kit (R1 only):

Any thoughts?

Great additions. Congrats on the successful GB!

I love it. adds some flair to the top of the set with good symmetry. I use 65% so this will be replacing my 5-8 on my numrow
