They are really expensive, but this is a really good idea.

Cool idea. I'm a little surprised this is being done for a modern product rather than a classic Atari product. I'd like to see new cases made for the 7800 and 2600 Jr, they were made of cheap plastic and can become pretty brittle.

I was thinking the same thing. The plastic on those later Atari systems feels pretty flimsy. A lot of times I see them chipped or cracked. Someone should get on this....
