Looking for pictures of an "Agent 88"

I had never heard of this before today but apparently there was an officially planned Amiga CD32 motherboard expansion called the "Agent 88" which added the I/O etc. and an A1200 style expansion.

I'd just like to see some pictures of this Agent 88 do any exist?

Me too...
...I understood this was made by a Canadian company who were going into the business of Amiga clones using said CD32 mobo + their own design of breakout board.
I've seen the magazine adds for these computers - desktop jobbies - so I assume they at least got to the mock-up stage.
I understand they went bust becuase they had paid C= for a load of C32 mobo's they never received...
...C= went bust, assets frozen, CD32 mobo's never delivered.

Hmmm, pictures, schematics, possibilities...

I read that on the old BBoAH website.

However I do not think that page is very accurate. There seems to be a confusion between this third party unofficial A2200 and the prototype Commodore A2200 which dates to just after AGA and was the unused forerunner of the A4000.

Just as the NTSC CD32's were that are finally coming onto the market now I wonder if we might see some bare CD32 motherboards??

The plot thickens...

don't you love the intricacies of C= history?
