Highly unlikely. The parts themselves cost well over $100 not to mention the time for someone to assemble it. At the VERY least if someone is nice enough you could probably get one for $200-$225.

Lol. Not sure if this was serious or not.
Not including anyone's time building this, you are looking at $123 before any taxes and shipping just for the parts alone.
$70 for the PB kit from Helder.
$10 for the battery (if you live in a country he can send it to) from Helder.
$35 for the 3D printed parts from wermy.
$8 for the necessary buttons from wermy as well.

Not to mention, you still need the pi $10-15 and a micro SD card, and the tin itself.

If you find a minty pi for $100, something is most likely seriously wrong with it from user error (soldering it sideways in a saltwater pool etc) and you will spend more $$$ to fix it than if you just bought one yourself.

I have a MintyPi full kit for sale for a very competitive price. It is unbuilt, so you will have to either make it yourself or commission one of these smart guys.

Check the for sale section if you are still interested.

I have looked at your website and is interested in getting an assembled mintypi v3 from you. I noticed that you mentioned you would not ship batteries internationally so I'm confused if it meant to be a separate battery or the entire device.

For your information, my physical address is in Ontario, Canada.

Apologies for replying here because I was not allowed to use the PM function as a new account.

Unfortunately, the kits are not being sold anymore since Helder is not selling any more kits since he can not get the screens anymore. I still do repairs but just can not do full builds anymore.

Thanks for replying. Is the montypi series discontinued entirely or does he have any future plans?

There is a lite version coming soon™. It will basically be a V3 minus the halls (magnetic) shutdown, and a smaller screen I believe. It's a little more work to put together though but cheaper in the end. It will still play the exact same games as the V3 though. More info can be found in Wermy's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEJx_WTAPKQ

I happened to get an offer from someone. I guess the screen still appeal to me.
