Envious of exotic foreign cases?

As Australians, we pay a heavy price for our geographical isolation and small scale of economy, as the range of products available to us is diminishingly limited compared that in Europe or the US.  Among the massive range of cases that exists in the foreign markets of contiguous nations are some seriously stunning specimens, carried by unheard-of brands, and some of these splendid, exotic cases has us drooling.

The Cortek Alantik Chronos Green Light C10067 makes us think of a radioactive core:

The Корпус Inter-Tech M-908 is adorned by runway lights on its the interior, with a transparent facade that gives us a good look-in:

By comparison, the Case Midi Inter-tech Q2 Illuminator Blue that we found on a Russian e-commerce counterpart’s website, looks sturdy – like it can take some serious punishment – and has an alien sci-fi vibe to it:
