My CD32 Special Edition arrived in the post yesterday!

It's great quality, just like the black case I got as part of the original Kickstarter. Can't wait to see the matching keycaps...

EDIT: It looks almost black in that photo but it's not in reality (other easter eggs in the photo: a yellowed A1000 and my hairy knee!)

Just wanted to tell people. My case arrived, and it's amazing. I shall show it off on my stream later. Even received a couple of AMiGA pens and an Amiga postcard as well.

If you must excuse me, I'm out of breath blowing up that Boing Ball Beach ball!

Thanks! I wish more people would start posting pictures of their new Amiga case's. I am considering getting a white case. Yours looks awesome.

But what about the keycaps? When will they start being sold and will there be a case+keycaps all-in-one package? That's really what I'm waiting for!

@Steve

Send us an email (sales@amigakit.com) and we will be happy to send you some "real world" pictures of the white, clear or black case. Hope this helps.

Looks like Amigakit have sold out of black cases, least that helped me make up my mind between white and black. Order in just now.

My poor old A1200's case is not in good condition. Love it otherwise.

My advice is don't wait until keycaps to get case and keycaps together as most likely you won't be able to get a case when the keycaps are available. Trust me, I've had this issue since I missed the case kickstarter 2 years ago

Extremely happy with mine. I've promoted the A1200 from the loft man-cave to downstairs. Use it every other day now.

Anyone want to trade a Blue A1200 case for a Skid Row red? Or trade for a black/transparent.

Mine have just turned up, I got a black one and a white one. Very pleased with them. The only thing I would pick up on is that there is only one Floppy button and it doesn't match my drive. I Know kickstarters will get more posted out to them free, but I've asked if they will be available for the rest of us to buy if needed. I also think we need to sort out case badges, I managed to get mine off the old case, but it's easy to damage it in the process.

I Just heard back from the nice chaps over at A1200.net and after they have supplied all the kickstarters with floppy buttons, they will also be made available for us to buy.

No probs - I like seeing pictures of these cases too, especially the more exotic ones!

Phillippe wasn't 100% sure if keycaps will make it to retailers - it seems that they've been more challenging than the cases. There's another keycaps campaign later in the year though, so I'd back that if you can just to be sure.

I received my new white case from Amiga On the Lake here in the US. Great quality, wish it had come with a case badge, but, I was able to source a nice looking one on eBay.

The only problem is that it makes my keyboard look downright dingy! Guess I'll have to break down and retrobright the white keys.

Mine received today from AmigaKit which I wish to thank.
I also ordered a metal badge from eBay.

The case is fantastic, very good quality. My only problem is the floppy eject button that does not fit my disk drive.

Is there a solution in order to paint it myself ?

Is the upcoming keycaps A500 only or? Last I heard from a1200.net( 3 months ago ) is that A1200 keycaps were to be in retail a few months after the cases.

Really do hope the keycaps do go retail, even cleaned right up my current ones haven't a chance of matching the new white case.

Has anyone every tried to fit the brass inserts found on these new cases to their original case.
They are available cheap from ebay and looks like you just melt them in place with a soldering iron.
I ask because I was looking to repair a stripped hole in my A600 case.
