    I saw it posted that Intellivision Entertainment is unable to ship to Australia dues to taxes and such.

    No worries my brother,I have you covered! 👍😊

    And I thank you very much!

    My good friend Dale has ordered a set for me and I am very grateful. Will send you some money soon.

    I love this community and how people here help eachother out.

    Good Karma.

    Thanks again Dale. 👍👍

    Aren't you wanting shipping from a PAL country, or are these all region free. I forget.

    Fairly sure the console works everywhere in the world with no special versions required.

    Just sent a enquiry to I.E. through their website as to obtaining this boxed collectors edition in Australia so I have my fingers crossed. 🤞

    Tommy said in the Utah tour video they had units for Europe & for the US & Canada, I am guessing the byzantine tax & shipping regulations/restrictions probably prevents them from shipping elsewhere.

     

    EDIT: USPS won't even ship to Australia right now :(

    Well that's no good. Hope there are a few held back for a purchase in the not too distant future.

    It sure seems more and more like there is a concerted & coordinated effort to spin falsehoods and crap on Amico.  
     

    You would think this is an article from journalists, but I don’t consider anyone a journalist who puts something like this out without fact-checking the “facts” they spout off on. How can IE not be damaged by unprofessional journalism like this?  It sure starting to feel like something more than just unprofessionalism in journalism to me.   
     

    Absolutely distasteful.

    I read a bit and then gave up. Terrible and false journalism.

    I got the all clear from my Wife and she told me to go and have fun.

    See you tomorrow Tommy!

    I cant wait to see and play the Amico firsthand. 

    Sounds like a blast!

    Trying to decide what Intelligear I should wear.🤔

    So jealous Dale.

    Play a few games for me and I expect a full report.

    Have fun!

    Even the most diehard Amico fans should be a bit nervous at this point. No revenue coming in,  3 delays, not seeing great progress (maybe just not showing everything,  but just seems like most games are unfinished). 

     

    We'll see. 6 months ago I wasn't nervous.  But I actually am nervous now it may never fully come out.

    Why be nervous?

    Do you have a deposit on a amico and if so and it worries you then just get your money back.

    i am happy to patiently wait for the console to be unleashed upon the world and then enjoy some great games.

    Our first 50,000 run of physical products for our games has been completed, manufactured and shipped to our warehouse! Here is a first look at our packaging. Proudly created in the United States and manufactured across Europe. We'll be sharing a lot more details as to how our physical products work (and what surprises are inside!) closer to launch.
     

     

    The box looks like a interesting design being rebated in on three sides like a hard cover book. 

    Well, that's the way it looks to me on the video. How about a closer in picture please.

    I tested my boxed cart and it was a black screen at first,which panicked me.

    I used a q-tip and isopropyl alcohol on it and as it usually does,it worked!

    Mr. Rietveld,please PM your address and I will ship it out,probably wrapped in bubble wrap in a bubble envelope,on a day when I can get to the post office.

    My friend Steve and I are right up the road and would love to come down and play some Intellivision Baseball or Skiing,some other Intellivision games and some Amico!

    As nice people,125  Intellivision club members and Founders Edition buyers we would be the perfect guests and visitors.

    I hope I made a great case  for us to receive an invite.😄

    Dale, now your just making me feel jealous. No idea when we can travel normally again.

    @CurlyQ
    Since people only either LOVE or HATE the Amico, please, add to your list, my request for a MARMITE edition!
    For those who don't know what Marmite is, check Wikipedia, but in simple terms, it's a DELICIOUS wonder! 🙂
    The Australians have something similar, called Vegemite, which with all due respect, is horrible. Life is cruel.
     

     

    Thats ridiculous. Vegemite is vastly superior to the  flavourless Marmite. There is also Promite which like Marmite is also rather bland.

    Vegemite rocks!

    Heres my Homebrew collection,at least one of everything made I believe. 

    The top row from Robot Rubble to the right are some of my  repro /concept boxes.

    Any of my doubles and extras are on the bottom right row.

    My 125 collection is in the case on the other side of the cabinet.

    Its very impressive as i have stood there in front of this wall of wonder drooling all over the carpet. 

    When the world gets back on track I hope to revisit.
