New A1200 Cases From New Moulds
I spoke with Philippe Lang of the A1200 Team about their licensed effort to create new cases the venerable Amiga 1200. They are offering the original color, optional colors and even limited edition colors.
Made from 3 moulds, the “kit” includes a top and bottom shell, plus new trap doors, and even some hidden mods that will make it easier to work with 3rd party upgrades. The case will support all revisions of the A1200 board and can also support the Raspberry PI if you are just looking for a retro case.
The Kickstarter runs until Nov. 1, 2015 and is looking to raise 125,000 Euros. The most affordable option is just to get new trapdoors and other related parts, and screws. They have put a lot of time and thought into this effort and you can see the Kickstarter page for all of the details.
They can’t offered them without any of their own self built parts, but some sponsor packages include set of coffee mugs with the Amiga logo, the checkmark, and the bouncing ball.
