Same.  It kinda looked like an Amico.

Kinda?  Only posted cause it looked like they could have shared the same molds 😁

That's great!

So I shared the good news with my wife and she got annoyed, says to keep from poking around as these are Christmas gifts.  
 

Says she wont let me even look at them until X-mas, let alone getting to open any of them 😞.  
 

Might have to head up to Wolfy’s house on the sly if I’m going to get a peek of these before then.

The date on this video is from today but it looks older - are the prices changing?

You obviously know that video is a bunch of clips from other videos.  Those videos are from 2019 before pandemic related issues hit businesses.  What makes you think the prices are changing now?

Recognize these from way back, before covid. Covid (and Capacitive screens and other design maturation) has brought new realities…  Don’t think some people appreciate that fact and/or conveniently avoid this when they make their hit content. 
 

When IE set their price for preorders/retail, they had already established the costs of components (via their BOM) and their manufacturing, shipping, distribution, etc. costs, after which they started taking pre-orders and retail orders; then Covid hit jacking up all of those costs and they are now boxed between their established pricing and unexpected higher costs.  This is not IE’s fault, it just happened to be bad timing (not that there is ever a good time for a global pandemic).

Without even watching the video I can say no this is old footage that has already been covered as a quick recap. When originally announced October 2018 reveal trailer listed the price for the system they were shooting for between $149-179 however once they got feedback from focus groups and looking at possible upgrades to make the machine higher quality. So the price went up to $249 for the system two controllers and 6 games as the focus groups wanted to be able to plug it up and play without having to buy more things.

 

6 games say $55.00 since one is the Farkle $70 per controller $195 $55 for the system which has been the announced price since it went up for preorder originally and won’t be changing

Well they do look very similar.  Maybe kinda wasn't the right word to use.  Lol.  It would be neat if they did share the molds.

Too funny - now we just need an Amico with light gun support with this method of opening it 😆. Then we really have something that matches the Michael Bay trailer music for a reveal. Watch the Gun Box video with the Amico trailer music - you'll see :)

according to some people... There is noting inside as it's vaporware..  Loads of space..   AR-15.. A few Glocks... My HK USP... 357. Bazooka...

As much as I want the Amico to succeed, I wasn't comfortable with having to put any money down before the console was available.  The same thing goes for the games.  Buying games with no console, even though a less expensive option made even less sense to me.  I'm not a collector, just someone who enjoys playing simple video games that are enjoyable (i.e. Asteroids, Space Invaders, Galaga, Galaxian, Defender, etc).  When the console finally gets released, I'll order one the first day they are out.  Until then, I'll continue to enjoy playing my Intellivision...

I can respect that. Not everyone can toss around 250 + 150 for the bundles. Giving the retailers the business does help out though, as it makes them stock more product. Especially if they sell through..  Speaking of Selling through.. I just got an email saying that they have almost sold through their stock !!! Wooo hooo!!!

Mine was 1390.  You might be the highest one on here.

I guess people on here snagged them early.  As they are getting close to selling out,  that #1392 must be pretty low in the grand scheme.

Or maybe some of the "never buyers" have the higher numbers and don't want to tell us!  :rolling:

That's awesome.  And now you're the highest.

I put in a second order to go with my second Amico for my In-Law's, so they'd have more games to play on day one without having to buy anything too, and to support Tommy, and the Gang's hard work!

 

I got #1995 this time!  🙂

Guess this means open season when the console launches and we can play back all their nonsense

Frankly, I'm not 100% sure if I'll pre-order any games, either. Thankfully, the later retail editions are supposed to be pretty much identical, so I'm not worried about losing out if I save my money for more important things.

This is so unlikely. This is like home shopping network tactics. Not cool Tommy.

So you think giving the people who have been following the project from the beginning what they have been asking for as well as proving to investors there is a market for the product by selling out of 40,000 units in 5 days or so is somehow a bad thing?  Most people would find that to be a plus for a company starting up

There are ten's of thousands of people who would disagree. What is not cool is coming to our fun thread and trying to pee in the punch bowl. Bush league tactics.
