Vampire 500 V2+ : Any Availability Soon?

Just gearing up to buy one for my Amiga 500... but looking around, it looks pretty grim out there in terms of any potential upcoming stock, with little to no info from most Amiga shops...
The only glimmer of hope might be AmigaStore.eu saying "Re-stock: T.B.A (pre-orders are being shipped)"  / bit fuzzy and open ended? And how old is that comments?
Does the team really plan to produce more batches in 2019, or are they re-focusing solely on V4? (especially when it comes to cards for 500s)

I think (assuming) that there should be more batches soon, and its all based on the demand and I can see there is stil big demand for the v500, they are selling them in eBay for like $400-500.

I just ordered one from Vesalia 2 week ms ago and got it last Wednesday. Installed it yesterday and it runs like a thoroughbred. Canít wait for the SAGA to give AGA chipset and more chip RAM and no longer needing to switch monitor inputs.

I also still need to figure out how to get the Ethernet module working. Iím running Coffin 54 and Roadshow pops up something whenever I play a WHDload game but every time I try to do anything on iWeb it reports no DNS so Iím stumped.

Thanks for that... good for you!
Sadly it now says out of stock - "This product is currently not available (no delivery date confirmed)."

Ah yeah I think i got one of the last 2 they had but I thought their site was showing new availability expected on the 19th. Guess that fell through for them.

Hereís to hoping the V4 standalone isnít that far out! From what Iím seeing of this V2+ so far Iím definitely getting a standalone!

Thanks Renaud for the heads-up!
Will scrutinise their site daily from now on.
