Kipper2k is likely to take V500 V2 orders but will also be busy with V600 V2 orders and building each board is time consuming. Majsta will be busy designing the V1200 I expect so when we might actually get a V500 V2 or V1200 in our hands is difficult to predict as I expect demand to be high. Interest in the Vampire seems to be picking up a lot as word is spreading about how good it is.
honestly, its a game-changer. I've always been a 68000 hardware fan and never really payed much attention to the previous iterations. I admit in the past i snubbed my nose at FPGA in favor of real hardware but im sold. I'll definitely pick up an A500 version. I've never liked all the bits of hardware hanging off the side of my A500
