I did back the A1200 cases. Of course over two years later, when they actually arrived, I found I didn't have time for them so sold them on to other members of the community. And now that I'd like one again, I find they are impossible to come by. You'd think now that they have the molds producing more for sale at regular retailers (AmigaKit, Amigastore.eu, etc.) would be simple and "common sense". :confused:

Oh well, time is a fickle thing. :lol:

TL;DR. The replacement floppy eject buttons never did arrive. :(


Just watched the deleted scenes (end of video), in the linked video at the indiegogo a500 campaign page.
Were he explains that the amiga1200 cases will be available worldwide trough different stores. This made me so happy that i will back the 500 case even though i currently do not have an amiga 500.

So yeah we will get new cases

You've never seen a video made with deleted scenes at the end?  It's a pretty common thing.  Alternate endings, or if someone flubbed a line, or read the script out of order, etc.  Sometimes people stick them in there just to be kitschy.  Don't worry, it's not some big conspiracy. :lol:

I%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!8217;d rather buy an used A500 with a good case and just use that. I mean what is with the $155K is this much really needed? But what the hell do I know..ha. Wish all those some luck who contribute :).


Edit: I have just noticed the A500 prices going up..hehe.
R.

Yes these moulds are very expensive to produce, esp if they are high quality with surface finish etc, I work in the plastics industry. Also factor in material costs which are increasing steadily, I don't see 155K is that bad considering they need a few moulds really..

All standard case colours (grey, light grey, purple, red, pink, dark blue, orange, light blue and green) and basic colours ('original A500', white, black and translucent) are now included in the main goal.

The stretch goal to add a 'tank' mouse case to each A500 case is currently the only stretch goal and it has been reduced considerably making it far more likely to be achieved.
