May be. However postage had already been paid. That's the point.

Ah, in the UK is a different story. There was talk of shipping the keys directly from China.

I bought one of the first A1200 cases so I know its basically an empty box. They should ship the case for free and maybe charge £4 for the keycaps, because, I've just bought a CD mechanism for a Bose Acoustic Wave CD3000 for £10 from China with free shipping. No argument.

It sounds like I ordered the same as you; CD32 case+keys and separate A1200 orig colour keys?
I read it that I could pay €20 for just the case now. Then the CD32 keys/mug +A1200 orig colour keys come all together later at some point.

In my case they offered me the CD32 case plus two sets of original keycaps (from batch #1) all shipped together for the extra €20 shipping.

I've also got a set of black keycaps from batch #2 ordered so they will send them on with the CD32 keycaps and mug later whenever they become available.

I agreed to the pay the extra shipping as I wanted to get them before Christmas and also wanted to avoid possible customs fees with Brexit coming up.

I've been waiting for the key caps for so long, and now they've eliminated two of the colours that I wanted. I picked alternatives but not sure I want them anymore.

At this stage I no longer believe I will ever get anything.
