New Amiga 1200 cases availability




Dear Amigans,




After the initial batch of Amiga 1200 replacement cases, a second run (1000+ cases) was ordered by our Retail & Distributions partners Amiga on the Lake (for the North Americas), AmigaStore (for the European Union) and A-EON / AmigaKit (for the United Kingdom).

These are in the colors "Amiga Technologies White", "CDTV Midnight Black" and "Translucent".

Earlier this week we received notifications that the shipments for the UK and the European Union have been shipped and are on the high seas. For the North Americas the shipment is ready for the US Forwarder to collect such that they can be on their merry way soon as well.

Meanwhile the production of the CD32 cases with our Case Manufacturing partner is well underway. Once completed, images will be sent to us such that we can share these with you.

our Amiga Keycaps replacements manufacturing partner (different from the case manufacturer) is also well underway. We are aware of the fact that it took too long for our liking, but we are happy to see that this project is now at full steam and nearing completion as well.

With the Amiga 500 case project underway, we will of course do another Amiga Keycaps replacement campaign with a lower fixed goal and a much faster turn-around time as the injection moldings creation is the most time consuming part.

We will keep you posted and would like to ask your attention once more for our Amiga 500 Case Campaign.. we need your support to make it work!

Indeed, that was one of the stretch goals, from what I remember.

Yes, it was the 130k goal - the SolidWorks CAD files.

You can buy a new A1200 keyboard membrane quite cheap (give it a Google). The keys in mine were much more responsive after I replaced it. I'd even tried roughing up the carbon contacts on the old membrane but that hadn't helped.

I am looking forward to seeing people's own 3D-printed A1200 cases when they are released. Not the kind of thing your average 3D-printer can handle.

Anyways, I have ordered two

So I get an email at 7.04am Saturday morning my time from amigastore.eu to say that the new Amiga 1200 cases are in stock. I wake up at 7.40am to see the email so head on over to Amigastore to buy one, only to find out they are OUT OF STOCK ALREADY?? Really? What a joke! I waited months and months and months just for this?

Ditto!
How could they sell out, maybe a couple hundred units, that fast?

What are the odds that just a few individuals bought the whole stock? Maybe there should be a limit for how many one can order at once, like there typically is for Raspberry Pi Zero
