Any idea if they will be selling just the power separately?

you could take a look at the studio bus it's very similar I believe

I noticed that, although this one doesn't take need a 4hp access. A switch on the bottom of my case and tones of power sockets are ideal.

The switch and socket line up with the hols on the rear of the mantis case, trying to make holes to fit that on an existing case would be hard. An easier option is to use any of the powered bus boards and have a socket (and switch if you want) wired inline, then you have more freedom to place them in a convenient location. There is an example in the Malekko power manual:

Or you can use a smaller 1U power entry and screw it to the side/rear of your case:

A power switch in the case is not a great idea as you should always turn off the brick when not in use. But if you want it for convenience there are plenty of options out there, and if you don't want to build anything yourself you could order it assembled from myself.

Also the TipTop Mantis supply is pretty weak on the +5V side only supplying 300mA in +5V. If you have a bunch of modules that can switch to using the +12v, you could tap that out pretty easily.
