    So after never receiving my Order from 2009 (CRAIG!!!!!!), I have finally talked my wife into letting me pull the trigger on a 1Ghz. I have been watching DragonBox.de like a hawk waiting until this paycheck to finally place the order and now that I have the $$ there are none in stock............. Any clue when more might be available? I love you guys! I can't wait to finally be able to contribute some code! ( I understand I could have done this over the years but writing code for a toy I don't have just hurts)

    YAY!

    Could you buy a different model and upgrade it?

    I thought those were the last ones?

    Or were there still some in production using parts you still had in stock?

    Hm. I've been on the fence if I ought to do a 1GHz upgrade for a while, but this really means that I must make up my mind or miss out, right?

    Well, about 300 are going to be produced, then... that's it.

    Day of the Pandora?

    I am in the same boat.  I want to stick with the original specs because it is what hooked me, but I want what the 1GHZ offers.  Unless someone gives me a bunch of money I think I will stick with what I have and remind myself that the Pyra is coming.

    What about spare parts? LCD cable and whatnot? Should I stock up while the gettin's good for the inevitable destruction I cause?

    So I see there are now a whole bunch of "Megapacks" on Dragonbox but it appears the voucher doesn't work with those and there is no option to buy only a 1Ghz Pandora. Am I doing something wrong?

    EDIT: Apparently I lied - they are in! sorry :rolleyes:

    No worries! Yeah the weird part is that only the Megapack is in stock!

    Since the MP is cheaper than the listed price of a 1GHz he is probably selling all the bundles he has first.

    Yeah that's what I figured I was just trying to use the voucher, which cannot be successfully applied to the megapack.

    Hopefully someone in the know will get back to you soon :) and/or you could message via the shop site.
