I don't quite have your courage. Almost, but not quite.  :)

I don't see how this isn't going to look like any other frosted translucent case? At least, I'm hoping it looks like the clear 2600 cases that VGWIZ used to offer.

Translucent by definition is 'not exactly clear' so am hoping it *is* going to be a bit frosted. Would rather see that than a perfectly clear case where you'll be able to see any and all manufacturing flaws or future scratches and scuffs.

And you wouldn't be able to stop yourself looking inside and asking "Does that say CPU...?               or does it say GPU...?              CPU...?             or GPU...?            GPU...?              or CPU...?                " and that could get a bit unhealthy.

** UPDATE **

 

Ok, I should have the tools delivered to my injection molder this week, I hope. After they arrive I will be running test molds through them and will drop a photo on here of what they will look like. After this, I am asking that everyone who wants either the console or cartridges to pay within a 24-hour period because I will only be running these translucent components once before I start using the tooling/molds for their new purpose - teaser - http://www.twitter.com/retrovgs.

Happy to pay in the 24 hrs after photos are posted. But please be mindful of time differences.
All the best.

Hmm, I see a corner of a white jaguar case, but that's what was previously offered by the dental folks? Intrigued for what the "new purpose" might be.

Oh cool there is a console coming out that looks like the Jaguar, plays cartridges, and will play a bunch of new homebrews that are coming out currently?  I think I've heard of that system, its called the ATARI JAGUAR.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

:grin: (yes I still want my translucent case)

Once the 24 deadline has begun, I'd like 1 console and 1 cart case.

 

If/when the CD becomes available, I'd like that too.

 

 

With a translucent case, we'll finally be able to see all the Jaguar's bits. (Yes, of course I meant it "that" way.)

It's so vague that I'm not sure if I'm ready to fork out cash, but it has potential. If this is a new cartridge based console, I may have to jump on board.

Ok.  Tooling should be delivered to its new home, an injection molding company here in So Cal. It should arrive tomorrow or Friday.  I will then need to schedule with the mold shop to set up the tooling and start the runs.  I will then post a photo of one of them as soon as we can.  Maybe as early as Mon or Tues of next week.  If not by then it would have to be the following week because I am heading to the Game Developers Convetion next Wed-Fri.  But we are getting close!  So just continue to watch this thread for news.

 

Also, we should have some official word up on ReadRETRO.com by day's end about the new console that will be the Jaguar repurposed, rebranded and reengineered. 

 

Thanks guys!

 

Mike

Thanks for the heads up Mike! BTW: Sent you a PM, but doesn't look like you've read it yet… just wanted to let you know I botched the instructions and paid via your socal account. Hope you got it okay!

Are you also re-engineering the cart cases after also or are they going to basically stay the same so more clear cart variants can be molded in the future?

Thanks for the updates! I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the new shells, and depending on how they turn out, I'll probably add some cartridge shells to my order, too. I'm intrigued by the new console project also!

Something I'd like to see once some shells are completed: details on assembly: is this going to be a straight-forward task for someone handy with a screwdriver?

 

Or will this be a "90% complete" item, where the buyer will be expected to do some drilling, soldering, or other assembly?

I will include the top and bottom shell case + button, light pipe and spring.  No fasteners.  You guys will have to assemble.  Also, you all might want to go follow our Facebook page to stay in the loop on the repurposing of the Jag as the RETRO VGS.
