Does anyone know what money we are talking about to build a complete amy 05 with average components and OS4.0 included?

Yes, I expect they do. However, it's going to vary wildly based on quantity.

Oh, did you expect somehow they would post to a forum before updating the expected pricing on their web site for some reason?

@gafstu
I don't think you realize the price difference in building. I know we all really dislike the whole 'economy of scale' term by now, but it's certainly true. I had a small commercial product where it made more sense to buy 1000 of a component at a time when I expected several hundred to last for years. Likewise, on the PCB manufacturing costs.

That's quite possibly the reason for the wide range of 'possible pricing' on Troika's site, and no one will really know unless they also know the quantities and build numbers they're looking at.
