By popular demand. Be warned: I am only collecting for the Atari Lynx and focus fully on that, plus I have been working on this since 1989.

Two boxes with MISB and CIB (shrinkwrap still present, neatly cut open).

I have never come across a sealed Super Off-road or Fidelity Ultimate Chess Challenge. Krazy Ace was opened by myself.

Loose cartridges, trying to get as many cartridges as ComLynx allows for that game.

Loose cartridges singleplayer:

Amazing!
How on earth did you get a hold of a loose copy of Zaku? Did someone really destroy his box already and sold it on eBay?
And you have a loose Desert Strike; my friend has only the box.^^

Haha, the Japanese Gates of Zendocon looks... interesting. Reminds me of Yellow Submarine.^^

Here's something foryour pic collection, maybe you don't have it yet:

$_58.JPG

Chip's Challenge with Japanese manual. I hadn't seen it before, but that's not saying much as I haven't seen most of the stuff you posted. :)

Well, I was going to do a post on Japanese variations, just like the Telegames one. There are quite a number of Japanese versions out there, mostly manuals, sometimes boxes (Klax) or the cartridge (again Klax).

 

My collection is severely limited in the Japan space. Only a Gauntlet manual and a Japanese Klax cartridge (2 actually).

I don't have any Japan variants in my collection, I have 3 or 4 of the French blister packs, though.

My development tools:

More ComLynx loose cartridges:

You can tell from the loose cartridges how rare some of them are. Battlezone 2000 and Battlewheels are hard to find in the wild.

 

You probably already saw the Telegames versions of Casino and Checkered Flag:

And a press kit from Atari:

These are from a Dutch Lynx club. Notice how the flashing of EPROMs was sold as a service.

This stuff is the best I've ever seen. I wonder if I'll play EOTB on my Lynx before I die...

 

If you are going to create a post about japanese stuff, I will contribute with some (very limited) things.  :)

Thanks for the compliment. I'm getting happier by the minute to have posted this stuff. I am doing scans of the brochures and will offer them to Albert to put in the Lynx section of the AA website.

I double checked because you made me doubt. My boxed version turned out to be empty and the loose cartridge is actually the one from the box. I had put it in one of those 3x3 cartridge wallets and took it from there, figuring I had the loose cart. Apparently not. One more for the list.

Yeah, bravo! Certainly one of the best collections I've seen, and mine's not too shabby itself. I really like all the brochures and catalogs you have. I only have the Batman one that came with a sealed Lynx II.

Damnit, I wish you had told me you were searching for Battlewheels carts. Battlezone is rare, but Battlewheels you could get new & sealed from a German online shop for the past 5 years for around 2 - 5 Euros a piece depending on special offers. It seems to be sold out now. I could have gotten them for you, as many as you need.

Most games were sold dirt cheap there, but the inventory seems to be drying up.

Anyway, your collection is awesome. I never expected you to be such a fan. The only collection I have seen yet that rivals yours is that of rygar. :)

I find these brochures fascinating, many of which I have not seen before :)

(And the "Schalt um auf Farbe!" ones show a Scrapyard Dog level I have yet to achieve....)

[For two seconds I thought this was a level of an unreleased Lucky Luke game :D ]
