I really like this set, but to be honest I'm not sure whether I'd buy one.
Just like Carbon SA, the colours are great, but they also remind me a lot of Skidata and Cherry OG (I don't want to call you a copycat or anything), which I have both.
That's up to you. The only thing you might want are the custom colors of Carbon. Yes all 3 Carbon colors are going to be custom. Please do not compare it to Skidata. I love skidata and i went fullhouse into Skiadat+, but the color way and color shades are way to different. Mix of skidata and og cherry might come close but it would be not the same.
Regarding the add-ons you may want to keep in mind, that the JTK Sophomore and Gmk Skidata GB just happened, so Black/Blue on Orange probably won't be too popular I guess. If you got some crazy Idea how to spice this set up a little I'm probably in.
This is Carbon. The only thing those keysets share are orange color but not the shades and color way. Again its up to you. For me Carbon is way to different from those keysets.
If one Add-On is another Modkit, would you also split the base-kit into mods and legends, like Royal Alpha Typewriter GB did?
Nope. This Keyset is going to be one single kit as long GMK does not lower its MOQ.
Look at Royal Alpha Typewriter MOQ. Overall none of its kits reached the moq.
Base Kit - 133 / Unlock - 150
Green Modifiers Kit - 123 / Unlock - 150
Light Gray Modifiers Kit - 47 / Unlock - 150
However MD allowed it to be succesfull. Now they are sitting on spare kits. Hope they will sell it.
This is why Carbon is going to be a single kit.
Since SP-Carbon was really successful, do you think an international legends add-on could tip? I guess a MOQ of 150/250 will be quite impossible to reach, but maybe they show some mercy since all the legends are pretty standard, no novelties or different colours? 75 may be reachable, since this would be the first GMK drop with international legends (?) there should be at least some demand? I know that I'd be in for a set, maybe two.
I just looked at the Royal Alpha GB managed to get the modset with ~40 buyers into production. If a MOQ that low would be possible with an international set I'm sure it'd meet MOQ! Please look into that, as a new era of int. GMK sets would be absolutely glorious!
See previous answer. GMKs MOQ are too high to do so. If they were at 25 i would do it, but not at 150.
Also you may want to include an alternative to the winkeys? Personally I don't have any problems with them, but every GMK-drop got some people complaining about them...
I dont know. But if i start to work on the final version, ofcourse i will ask people for their opinion. I hope we'll find a solution which will suit the majority.
