Gold Kickstarter Overstock Fire Sale!
As a result of a recent inventory discovery we are liquidating all excess overstock of Gold Kickstarter Edition Arduboys! We produced extra units as a safety margin to account for missed shipments and replacements and we needed a lot of them, but not all! These Gold Kickstarter Edition Arduboys have been sitting in cold storage for some time and it’s a shame not to have them in peoples hands for developing some awesome 8-bit games!
All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter
Gold back Arduboys were a reward tier during the Kickstarter that was unlocked at a quarter of a million dollars. 200 were ordered, 50 additional were produced. These are the remainder of those units.
Fall Down 7 Times Get up 8
Because these were our first production batch, and we inevitably learned from some of our mistakes. We are pricing the Kickstarter Edition Arduboys to reflect some features that aren’t on the current production version of the product. These still work just as good as a normal Arduboy with a few noted exceptions:
Features unique to Kickstarter Arduboy
- Gold Kickstarter Edition Printing: Every unit features a 1 in 250 edition numbering
- Speaker Holes: The very first edition included speaker holes, they didn’t make much of a difference so we removed them for looks
- C12 Edition: Along with units with speaker holes, the capacitor at position C12 is labeled in the silkscreen as a result of a last minute design change
- Screw Issue: The screws are known to potentially come loose after heavy use
- RGB LED Issue: The RGB LED was placed incorrectly on approximatly 80% of Kickstarter Edition Arduboys and does not function correctly
- Minor Visual Irregularities: There may be very tiny scuffs or scratches on the surface of the device
While we fully stand by our product but there is a reason we are selling these at a reduced price. We will be unable to warranty the Kickstarter Edition Arduboys for issues related to the ones mentioned above.
One Last Chance!
This is your last chance to get your hands on a unique collectible that celebrates our inaugural Kickstarter that brought Arduboy to the world! Once this sale is over, we will be completely out of stock of Gold Kickstarter Edition Arduboys and we won’t ever sell any more!
