Hi guys,

First of all, I’d like to send out a thank you to my friend, Back to the Code, for providing me with some hot news concerning the return of the Amiga 1200 Magic Pack.

Back in June this year, I reported that rumours said that Petro T. Tyschtschenko (Amiga legend!!) had located a vast amount of NOS (new old stock) Amiga 1200’s. Check it out here. Now I’m happy to say that these units are available and being shipped out to retro freaks as we speak. πŸ™‚

You can (if you’ve got Facebook) find more information on Petro’s Facebook page. He’s been posting several pictures of the goodies. You can also message him if you’re interested in buying one.

I want one!! (taken from https://i1.wp.com/www.amiga-news.de/pics/A1200.jpg?resize=723%2C542)

Any of you going to purchase one? It’d make a worthy addition to every retro gamers collection if you ask me. These things don’t grow on trees! πŸ˜‰

    • Hey Draxx,

      Thanks for commenting. πŸ™‚

      Hope you’ll get one soon. Please let me know when you receive it. I’m very interested in the overall quality of the computer.

      It’s been over a decade since I purchased my Amiga 1200 Magic Pack, but I remember the day vividly. Good times!

  1. Hey.

    Yeah I signed up to purchase one some weeks ago, he is shipping mine out to me to Australia within a week, I can’t wait.

    Just a heads up though if your interested they are actually all gone, no more left, I tried to get another one for a friend of mine and no luck.

    I love Amiga.

    • Hey mate,

      Thanks for commenting! πŸ™‚

      Wow! That’s awesome! Hope you’ll receive it soon. Please let me know when it arrives and your overall experience with it. Would be interesting to hear!

      All gone already? Man… that was quick, wasn’t it? Shows that there is a great demand for such stuff these days.

      I love Amiga too. πŸ˜€

      • Sure will post some photos of it once I get it.. πŸ™‚

        By the way.. If you haven’t heard, any fans out there who loved the video game music back in the Amiga days why not support Allister Brimble who composed the tracks for Body Blows, Alien Breed, Super Frog and Full Contact etc.

        Help fund his project like I have to receive a signed limited edition CD pack with all remixed and original tracks.

        http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2059538678/the-amiga-works

        I am the highest backer of 150 pounds which you will see the last funding option of only 1 at the bottom that is me, Allister made a special option for yours truly which includes other stuff not listed, I was really honoured, If you happen to back his project and you receive his CD pack, check out the inside booklet to see my name in there somewhere as a thank you to me ‘Zro Dfects’…

        I also backed Chris Huelsbeck Anthology CD pack like above of remixed and original tracks such as the popular Turrican games. He too did a special option just for me. Just like Aliister’s CD pack I get not 1, not 2 but 3 signed and numbered CD packs including posters and a mention in the booklet.

        OCEAN, the old video game designers are creating a book with a nice OCEAN cover and the history of good and bad times etc also you may be interested in. This one needs a bit of a push thought if you could help spread the word, if funds are not met then project gets cancelled.

        Only Amiga Makes It Possible.

    • Hi,

      Thanks for commenting! πŸ™‚

      You hit the nail on the head there. I also feel that there is some special with old stuff, but it is a bit hard to describe. Your way of saying it was very nice. πŸ™‚

  2. Watch this space.

    As mentioned earlier I was one of the lucky ones to have purchase the new A1200 from Petro all signed on the A1200 itself and front of the box, I have been watching the freight tracking and looks like I will see it in my hands tomorrow, so expect some photos of it here in a day or two.
