hardware Classic   hardware Classic : New Amiga 1200 case kickstarter campaign launched
   posted by JuLieN on 27-Jul-2015 19:02:38 (4426 reads)
Philippe Lang just launched a new kickstarter campaign to build new cases to replace our yellowing Amiga 1200 cases. As the moulds are quite costly, 125,000 has to be collected.

The campaign started a few days ago and already managed to get more than 28,000 euros from 187 backers.


If the campaign is successful, the team also plan to make new keyboards. The new case will be compatible with Jens' Amiga Reloaded motherboard.

The case will have several enhancements compared with the old one :

  • made of anti-UV ASA plastic, resistant to yellowing;
  • A CF slot above the PCMCIA one ;
  • New expansion trapdoor designed to help better airflow ;
  • New rear trapdoor to adapt to DVI/HDMI or VGA ;
  • HxC display slot ;
  • Two USB slots ;
  • VGA-shaped hole in place fo the RF - Modulator one.


It will be available in many different colours, including a few limited editions for best backers.

Click here to go to the Kickstarter Campaign.

This is so very cool. I backed them for one case. I also learned about the HxC which is also pretty cool stuff.

Sooo wanted this to be the Fantasy case.

A good idea though keeping to the original and just revamping. Love the colour options.

It should be Scan Doubler compatible since it cones with the DVI, VGA plate and mounting hole options. I have an Indivision AGA MKII with the connector that mounts in the same place as this case (Amigakit sells the new plate as well), so yes it will work just fine.

Unfortunately, as nice as the cases are (and I was tempted), it has only reached around 50% of its goal, with 4 days left. I don't see it reaching the 125,000 goal it has for production to start in the time it has left.
