That is a nice looking controller.

This is more like it! Only time will tell whether $20 is a reflection on quality or a genuine reasonable price. I think it looks ace. I'd have one, but what colour?
I have grey, blue and yellow original controllers. I quite like the standard grey to be honest. Not sure about the translucent coloured idea though.
I couldn't see any shipping costs knocking around, particularly to the UK.

$20 does seem really cheap but hopefully that's the result of manufacturing 1000's of these and getting the cost down. The price after the KS is over is going to be $25 so it's not going up much either.

They sent out the first update today and they said that they would do a poll after the KS had ended to determine what colours will be available. I like the grey too :)

Shipping cost is $20 for pretty much anywhere in the world. Doubles the price but if it's a good quality controller I still think it's a good deal.

Oof! They'll probably appear on UK sites at some point, like Funstock or suchlike. I'll wait until then...

Here's a cool looking one!

I love Centipede and this looks great but it's a little more than I would want to spend.

Here's a new Sega Dreamcast game on Kickstarter called Intrepid Izzy, a beat'em up / platformer genre mix developed by Senile Team, one of the dinosaurs of the DC indie scene and the team behind the awesome BEATS OF RAGE as well as Rush Rush Rally Racing for Dreamcast and Wii.

Here is a Kickstarter that should be of interest for Vectrex fans:  Bloxorz for Vectrex, PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
