    Who the heck is gonna pay 60€ to display a plastic camera at home? For that I could easily get a real antique to display!

    LSI guy 1: "O noes, we got in a bunch of Konstruktors in the wrong plastic! They're translucent, totally unusable"
    LSI guy 2: "Damn! What are we going to do? Better chuck them in the trash...
    LSI guy 3: 'Wait! I've got an idea. Let's sell them as collectors items."
    LSI guy 1: "Great idea! But do you think people will fall for it?"
    LSI guy 2: Just add a few bucks to the price to make it more collectible."

    ;-)

    But to be fair, I actually think it's a fun idea. A bit pricey though...

    Not sure if the lens is at all usable, but it'd be interesting to see what effect using it on a standard Konstruktor would give, I'll not be spending £55-00 to find out though. Does look pretty, though!

    Sometimes it seems that product designers are just to high to work.
    It sure looks pretty and maybe for teachers (and I am a teacher) it could have some sense. But the price is to high for a useless camera.
    Giving it a second though; even for educational purposes is useless. I mean the mechanics can be seen (and used) in the regular black camera.

    I guess what would be worthwhile seeing is how the film advance gears turn once there is film loaded. But yea, why would you make it more than twice as expensive as the one you can use? =/

    To see to whole functionality without wasting film, this camera needs some translucent roll of film to!
