Please try re-reading what I said, and this time don't put me in the "anti-MiniMig" group

I think you'd better re-read what I was saying. I never put you in the "anti-MiniMig" group. But I did say that you are bashing someones hard work.
A lot of people were asking for it and Wizard66 is one of the first persons to actually build a few for other Amigans that want it but lack the skills.
His bid started at only Euro 200, which means he would sell it at a loss.
You are among the first responders and immediately called out how crazy his prices are, while they are actually very fair. This does not show a lot of respect towards Wizard66.

Luckily the other bidders did value his work properly which brought the price up. I also bought one from him using the 'Buy it Now' option and he delivered a power supply along with it for an extra Euro 15. All well worth the money. She's a beauty.

You should also consider the MiniMig to be a developers machine. It is a work-in-progress project using expensive hardware parts that can be reprogrammed. An Amiga-in-a-joystick alike device would not have such an expensive programmable chip, but the programmable chip is required for improving the current design. So MiniMig might lead to something big in the future, but it is not an end-user system and it doesn't have an end-user price.

Its not the reprogrammable chip (FPGA) that makes it expensive. Its where the parts are sourced from (Farnell and digikey) that makes it so expensive. The problem is that unless you look at volumes of at least 200 you can't get the parts through regular distributors.
To make a ASIC (custom IC) cheaper in the long run (for a system of this complexity) you would be looking at quantities around 100,000.

I didn't mean you *said* I was in an "anti-MiniMig" group, I meant that you *thought* it. And that was why you did (and still do?) misinterpret my posts as somehow bashing the MiniMig and/or his building & selling of it. Which I am not (see my previous post).
