Yes, that's it. Mine is more worn looking (from wearing, of course).

And the final issue of Atari Lynx User:
Thank you very very much!
By the way - that's an impressive collection you've got there. Completionist indeed!

All you need is P.I.T.S.

Love it. I've never actually seen a Handy kit before!

I take it Harry's ignoring my question is a "no".
I guess so
Don't worry. Harry is sharing enough to make the entire Lynx community benefit. Trust me on that statement.

Great collection! Thanks for sharing. Seriously impressed..
Thanks. It was fun going through all my items. I am working on some additional scans and will post them here when I'm done processing them.

i know. There are a couple of other ones that I am looking for, but they are really, really hard to find.
I guess that most of all I am looking for a Howard/Howdy development kit to work on preserving that part of the development stack. If anyone knows someone who has one, but is not using it, or willing to lend it to me: please contact me.

I believe Rygar has that $10.000+ device, the only one known to exist (?). We are all sort of anxious to hear more on the Lynx to VGA from candle, as that will make it also feasible without the device.

This is a very very impressive collection and topic about all the stuff one can collect for the Atari Lynx.
My first reaction was: "WOW!"
My second reaction was: "That must have cost you a lot of time, effort and money dude."
I think I speak for a lot of smaller collectors when I say: "Please continue collecting and posting new gems into this topic".
Keep up the good work.

Hi Gekke Henkie (sounds Dutch),
Thanks for the complments. Yes, it did cost me a lot of time, but time well spent and very satisfying. I've never summed the money I paid for (parts of) the set, but there is some involved obviously. However, I never spent ridiculous amounts of money (save for the MISB Lemmings, that I bought a few years too late, and the Lynx development kit). The rest I bought in the nineties (as a normal player), and traded in 2000 and beyond when I started collecting more fanatically. There was a hiatus in collecting, where it just sat in the attic. That was just a couple of years. At one point I even thought of selling all doubles that I had (mostly MISB), but someone advised me not to do it. That's when I started to collect the MISB version of the commercial games (Atari era).
I will update with new items that I find. For now it is just a French Gates of Zendocon manual, but as soon as I get a decent batch of new things, I will definitely post it.

Jaguar has offically three networkable games (Battlesphere, Doom, Aircars) and here the Lynx has all these titles that you could network. Just mind boggling. Cool illustration.

Was this the module that would program the Lynx games using the Amiga?
Posted Thu May 8, 2014 8:53 PM
That is one thing I liked about the Lynx is how they got SOOOO much coverage in the comics. Seems like when I read early 90's DC comics I find a Lynx ad fairly often.

Gekke Henkie (sounds Dutch),
It's Dutch indeed.
I forgot my other account name+password+email used so I just created a new account just to reply to this thread.
I just started collecting half a year ago. So I'm pretty new in the collecting game but I like it.
So far I've managed to get 56 games and all this hardware + boxes http://retroplayer.n...4&t=11&start=30
No new stuff, no press kits or demo carts but I'm not going for that at this moment (maybe later).
Currently I focus on all games within rarity 1-8 (starting with rarity 1-4 CIB and 5-8 CIB if possible)

Hats off! That is a FANTASTIC Lynx collection! And here i thought i had a ton
Btw, nice to see others collecting complete Lynx ComLynx carts. Have you got them all? I got a ton of mine back in the day when no one cared about retro so it didn't cost me an arm and three legs
Lynx wise, I'm mainly interested in tracking down a Japanese Gauntlet manual (and Box?? i just read that somewhere now...) I haven't seen one other than in your collection (Gauntlet manual) but now i'm going to start looking like a madman as i am a mad Gauntlet completionist collector! The only thing Lynx Japanese I have in my collection is a mint Slime World (cover is Japanese, box i can't remember seeing a difference, but like i said, only found out about Jap boxes now so i'll take another look, and as for the cart, all 8 of mine look the same so i think its just the manual that's different)
In any case, once again: FANTASTIC collection and thank you very much for sharing!

They call it Obsession. I with ya, but I would be divorced if my collection was that large.

*puts jaw back in place* WOW! Totally speechless! AMAZING!
Posted Mon Oct 12, 2015 3:46 PM
That is absolutely amazing. Never ever saw that one before! Thanks.
