Selling Kickstarter pledge - A1200 keycaps

In short, I've got pissed off when I was informed that my selected A1200 keycaps (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...miga-computers) colors won't be delivered and I won't get the refund (I can only select other color instead) - this is a part of the response I got:

Quote:
The team can't provide refunds. All our tools and molds have been designed and manufactured. The goal of our crowdfunding campaigns are for us to reach the capacity to produce these heavy industry tools for plastic industry. Then contributors get rewards as we successfully created the necessary tools, once production is done. What is possible however, is for you to transfer your pledge to someone else. Then we can arrange your account and transfer the rewards you'd designate us to a third party.
Since there is one more delay (IMHO most likely not the last one), this is exactly what I now intend to do. In 2017 I would be really happy to get these keycaps, now I'm not that much into Amiga anymore (got involved in some C64-related software development), besides I now want to go with a mechanical keyboard solution.


To be clear: I'm selling the rights to receive the reward, not the reward itself: if Phil delivers the keycaps 10 years from now (or won't deliver them at all), if you are not happy with the quality, if the colors gets changed arbitrary to an awful shade of pink, if you are forced to pay extra to receive the keycaps, etc. - than your lawyer/mother-in-law/hired-gangsta goes after Phil, not after me!


My pledges consist of the following (it looks like the keyboard layout and non-Apollo colors can be changed till 31 March):

- 1x Apollo Team (early bid), US layout, marking on a space bar
- 1x dual color, US layout, standard A1200
- 1x single color, US layout, black

I'm not sure now if I ever selected the region for delivery (if I did, it was EU).

Asking 290 EUR for all, I don't want to 'split' the rewards. (NOTE: this is more or less the amount I pledged, plus a little to cover the currency exchange costs. I'm not seeking to earn anything, I just want my money back). First to PM me = first to be handled.
