Hi guys,

 

I've been an Atari fan since my early childhood and I have always had some ataris around me. Two years ago I started my adventure with Atari Lynx.

The problem I encountered with the growing number of cartridges was the lack of a proper storage unit. Okay, I know I can hold them in Atari carrying bag or Songbird's one, but they can hold up only a small number of cartridges. So I decided to make one on my own.

It can store 36 games, both carts and PCB. It's very durable and has a sweet logo on the front. I have made only a few so if you guys want I can sell some of them at a good price of only 20 Euros plus shipping ;) I accept both PayPal and Bank drafts.

PM me if interested :)

That is really cool! I would need several lol. If you decide to keep making them I will definitely buy some from you down the road.

How much does it cost in United States Dollars? I can't guarantee I'll buy one - financials and somesuch - but I think it's very interesting.

Guys, the lot is almost sold out and there is only one left!!!

 

I can make some so just give the numbers in pms as I need to know how many of them I should make :)

 

You can check the shipping for:

registered letters here -> http://cennik.poczta...a_polecona.html

and for small packets here -> http://cennik.poczta...a_pocztowa.html

Sites are in Polish but it doesn't take a genius to wok it out.

 

So far it is:

rygar - 1/2

mckafka99 - no number given

LX.NET - 1/2

Guitari - 1

 

Some of you ask me how I made them. Well I just oreded some parts, some of which needed to be specially tailored. My idea was to do it for me but as there are no good cases I decided to share and that's it.

 

So, let's do it that way:

  1. Check the shipping
  2. PM me with the number of cases and your address (plz check twice or more :) )
  3. Send the money
  4. Wait for the cases
  5. Enjoy :)

I will wait till the end of the week (03.08) and order the parts for the cases :)

 

Cheers :)

Ok, I'm stuck at the first hurdle.. how much does the item weigh iPokey? and surely it is a small packet not a letter?

 

Thanks  :)

Sweet cases!!!  Wish I had the money to buy one.  If only some of the idiots on eBay would buy my stuff and pay up.

Awesome!! Cannot wait :)

 

Please consider making a run of these for the AA store as I'm sure there will be plenty of people kicking themselves for not getting one later on..

Quick update:

I have all the parts now so I am ready to start.

 

I receive request from you to make more. No problem, I can do it but it would be best if I could have another list of buyers. The things aren't cheap to make and I don't want to get stuck with a lot of 100 cases at home ;)

 

Pre-order list 2nd run:

JagLynx4Life - 2

slx - 2

Guys,

I had some problems in my private life therefore the huuuuuuge delay, sorry. The units are 90% ready, I'll be finishing and sending this weekend. That is way I didn't want your money before I finish. You never know what may happen, eh.

Everyone will receive individual total and paypal details.

Cheers

Hi

Please can you add me to the Pre-Order list of the 2nd Run for three (3) cases.  I have plans to fill them with all my duplicates of the multiplayer Lynx games I plan to finish off collecting.

Thank you

Regards

Lee
