Throughout this month and last we have been featuring possibly the coolest Amiga Kickstarter that has been the talk of the site ever since we first announced it back in Sept (link). It's none other than Philippe Lang's second Kickstarter attempt; New AMIGA 1200 Cases ', in which you can pledge for your very own super resistive and Anti-UV plastic moulded Amiga case in a multitude of colours. That's right NO MORE YELLOW! What's more not only are there special editions available, but these cases have compatibility with the A1200 Reloaded / Raspberry Pi / MiST and more! But this Kickstarter needs your help, as currently this project is at €113,014 pledged of a €125,000 goal with just 6 days to go!!
In regard to the special editions, such as the amazing Alistair Brimble special or the Skidrow Limited Edition, in which you can get more than just your average paint job. Today's announcement from Scoopex, has mentioned to us that their 199 euro pledge has been so popular, they've had to add a NEW Scoopex edition with small modified look (badge & plaque) plus more awesome perks. But remember there's only 30 pieces available, so once they are gone, that's it!
Due to INCREDIBLE demand, second, slightly modified batch of SCOOPEX Amiga 1200 cases are NOW available on Kickstarter! 30pcs available! Go and get your own, NOW! Two great perks added! Backers of LIMITED EDITION cases gets new perks too!Everything else that needs to be said is in our previous article which will be linked at the bottom. But all of this will not happen unless they reach that Kickstarter goal, and with only 6 days to go, it's going to be incredibly close. So if you don't pledge even if it's just €5 or more, many people including myself will never get to see a lovely white never go yellow Amiga again ( or painted ). And yes I know of Retrobright and I've also put my interest towards a black Amiga, with black keycaps ;)
In order to keep original first batch of Scoopex cases special, there are differences to the original LIMITED EDITION cases:
- Full dark grey case. NO transparent bottom.
- Second batch of cases is NOT numbered.
- New plate with a Scoopex logo added instead numbered one.
- Modified badge with smaller Scoopex logo.
- Iconic Scoopex Eagle logo added to the badge.
But that's really it. Two great perks are added:
- Beer Sleeve with Mikael "UNO" Billborn's graphics and signature!
- Mousemat with Tomas "UNCLE TOM" Dahlgren's signature!
And I want to point out again that ALL Scoopex case backers (including LIMITED EDITION backers) gets these new perks without paying any extra!
