Slowly but surely the collection is growing. I have completed my U.S. release of Microvision:
Missing some boxes and manuals, but at this point I'm not going to go for them. I am keeping a lookout for Super Blockbuster though. Super BlockBuster was an UK only release and I believe the only game I don't have.
I got the French version of Super Blockbuster, it was a European release

I have grown more attached to it as time has passed. It is one of my prize possessions
Very nice collection! I wish I will someday be so lucky to find one of the "uggly" red Marlboro LYNX for my collection.

A friend of mine hooked me up with another cool addition to my collection:
Here posing with my released copy is a proto of Super Asteroids / Missile command !!
I am now the third owner, it was originally bought with other Atari items when JTS sold its' stock. At first glance there are no differences that jumped out at me from this proto and the released version. After some time playing both it seems that the proto is more difficult than the released version. Most noticeably the missiles your firing, as well as the missiles coming down, are moving faster in the proto. Super Asteroids also seemed a bit harder to me in the proto and both Asteroids and Missile command had more bonus items (ufos, etc.) in the released version. So my guess is that just a little difficulty tweaking was done between this proto and the released version, everything else looks the same.
I have another fun addition on its' way. A Lynx item many of you may not have even known existed. Can't wait to share.... but you'll have to wait

I've commissioned two handhelds that I am pretty excited about. Here is a little teaser:
I'll post more once they are done.
Any news on this one? It looks really neat.

The moment you have all been waiting for.......
IT HAS ARRIVED!!!!!
Now I have to bone up on my pin collection
This beauty use to belong to the director of Ubisoft France who it was given to by the director of Atari France.
Here is some other background on the item. There were two runs of these show boxes that I know of. One run was of 250 and the run that this box was a part of, of 100. Atari France held contests, one of which was a video game show in 1991 and these were prizes. I'm not sure what other times/places these were given out or sold. Here is a link to a post about the contest:
This is tied with the Marlboro Lynx for my favorite piece in my collection, it is a lot prettier than the Marlboro Lynx
If anyone else has any more info please chime in

Is there a pin for every Atari released Lynx game?
