-1 for going any kind of "crowdfunded" route. I'd be out then. Zero interest whatsoever.

Especially don't need annoying e-mail updates every few weeks with sumguy's ramblings of their snail paced mis-micromanaging:

I would take one order (a pair.)

 

Thanks.  This is long overdue, once people play with a decent pro controller you won't go back to the three button.

 

Make sure they are a little smaller like the real pro's are vs the three buttons.

As mentioned, the shell will be the same. I assume he'll be having a mold made from an existing one like he has done with the carts.

Exactly, they will be like the originals. The molds will be duplicated from original parts

Put a sick snarling Jaguar face molded in place of the Atari logo.

Cool idea.

Cool idea. 

 

With red glowing eyes like the CatBox  :) At least add it to the deluxe model  ;)

As long as we're making suggestion, a reverse color scheme of red with dark gray buttons would be cool!

Suggestions are appreciated; however the initial run of these will be 1:1 duplicates of the original minus the logo. Hopefully we can get enough interest to make this run possible

Have you tried contacting some of the larger retro gaming retailers? Perhaps Best, B&C, Goat Store, etc would be interested although there isn't much meat on the bone for them. Also based on how these move on EBay I'm sure you could move plenty of them over time there. 

I contacted them all today and will see what they have to say.

Honestly would prefer the controller to be as close to the original as possible, minus the logo.

I already have two Pro Controllers that I bought at retail back in the day.  I support this project though and will buy two.  The Pro Controller is a big time upgrade over the stock Jag controller and it would be nice if more people had access to them.

It's almost like the lengthy, detailed first post never happened. Such is the way of the Jag forum.

I'd be up for a couple. That is if I can afford them when it happens.

Email sent - is be interested in a couple bare boards too if you go that route, as mentioned abound it makes fabricating an arcade controller easier.

I also like the idea of it being as close to the original as possible, although a longer cord would be GREAT!

That's massively impressive in such a short period of time, congrats seems there is a tidy size market out there. Well done, I'm really looking forward to this!
