Frequently Asked Questions
The campaign goal is quite high indeed.
The reason behind this is that Amiga 1200 original casing molds are long gone !
So to have new cases for our beloved Amiga 1200, we need new molds.
And molds for plastic injection are very expensive.
They're priced over a kidney, or maybe more.
We need 3 of them.
1 Mold for the bottom part of the case.
1 Mold for the top part of the case
1 smaller Mold for the trapdoors, plastic adapters (DVI/HDMI/VGA) and parts.
Total weight: 5 metric tons !
Molds are highly priced pieces of industry, and we need all 3 of them.
Then there's still the production costs as well as the plastic pricing.
This is why we need the help of ALL Amiga Fans out there.
Without Molds = No new Amiga 1200 cases ever !
Without new casings = No new Amiga 1200 ever ...
So We Need You ! ;)Last updated:
Special Edition Cases: - YES -
- Shortly after the Kickstarter campaign ends, it'll be possible to acquire all remaining Special Edition cases still available until no more left.
Regular Amiga 1200 Cases: -NO-
After the kickstarter campaign ends, it'll not be possible to order the New Amiga 1200 case directly from us.
Due to this manufacturing process being complex and costly, we'll only manufacture Amiga 1200 cases through orders made by distributors and/or retailers.
We will not sell the cases directly to consumers, but only through proper channels.Last updated:
Not at all.

Sure, here are some details:
Where are the mountings ?
- We've added mounting points inside our A1200 case, so that Rasberry Pi / Pi 2 users can also mount it inside. Once mounted, the Raspery Pi a/c plug will face the A1200 rear panel for easy plug in.
Keyrah support ?
- Yes, adding mounting points for the Keyrah will give the possibility to use the original A1200 keyboard with the Raspberry Pi.
Does these mounting point alter our casing in any way ? Do we get new holes ??
- No, not at all!
These are just mounting points we added.
There is no major changes on the case design.
The Keyrah and Raspberry Pi / Pi 2 make use of the already existing original A1200 rear I/O ports holes.Last updated:
Nothing will happen !
It's sad if you scratched your case.. accidents can happen.
But as our cases are not painted, you will barely see any difference beside the scratch itself !
We're using plastic that is specially colored for the needs of this campaign.
The color is embedded within the plastic itself ;)Last updated:
1- Select and Pledge on the Limited Edition reward you wish.
2- ADD the additional cost for regular Amiga 1200 cases you want to your TOTAL Pledge amount,and you're all set !
Examples with Special edition + regular case:
Limited Bronze + 1 regular extra A1200 case = 199Eur (+shipping) + 79Eur
