Someone suggested the other day that this keyset should be run again. So I figured why not, maybe there’s enough interest to warrant a second round.
V2, as I call it, will have a very different kit structure than the initial run. Below you will find the current version of them, they are not final and are thus still open for discussion and improvement.
The two primary changes are that this time I am using Git legends for the colored based kit, and that a Monochrome kit serves as a second base kit instead of the same but with white alphas. Hence, the Hagoromo Alphas are now available separately. Furthermore I have extended coverage for other layouts, such as the Assembly kit and Spacekeys, as this run will happen through Massdrop and should therefor be a bigger GB, making these kits possible.
Colevrak and NorDeUK: I don’t want to really. Honestly, these kits always disappoint. The only time NorDeUK hit MOQ naturally was GMK Laser, and that set sold 2100 base kits. I don’t want Massdrop to be expected to hoard half the required units in their warehouse until the heat death of the universe. I will talk with GMK and Yanbo, and possibly offer these kits with an MOQ of 50, and if by the time the drop is halfway over and these kits not having hit at least 75% MOQ, I’ll probably just cancel them then and there already. It’s not that I hate you guys, I love every single one of you, but please prove that I am not making a mistake by adding these. They hit 25% MOQ on GMK Space Cadet (and for that NorDeUK kit, a quarter of the units sold in the GB were bought by Wodan and myself), so I don’t see those kits return on that set ever again. So should these kits end up in the GB, consider this your only chance to ever buy a GMK Oblivion set with Colevrak/NorDeUK support. Sorry if that sounds like a threat or so, but you are an endangered species. Thank you.
Regarding colors: Blue accents in Monochrome Base Kit will be same as Space Cadet blue. The beige legend color on gray alphas and monochrome modifiers will be custom this time as well, matched to GAL from SP.
TL;DR: New GMK Oblivion on Massdrop end of Q2 2019. New kits. MAYBE Colevrak and NorDeUK kits.
