Were any Optigans shipped overseas?

Posted by peahix on April 23rd, 2006

Gus Wylde, one of the technicians for Optigan, reports that the last 100 Optigans made by Mattel were shipped to Amsterdam. Frans van der Bijl, a citizen of Amsterdam, did a bit of research on this and found it to be essentially the truth. The parts were shipped overseas, where they were assembled by the individual dealers and sold not very successfully. Also, I’ve had enough reports of Optigans turning up in Australia to lead me to believe that there must have been a shipment sent down there as well. Other than that, it’s unlikely that any Optigans left the country other than solitary instruments shipped privately.
