These original paintings once lined the halls of Atari.

I'd love to have just one of them Lynx historical beauties adorning one of the walls (and if safe then to take them to our events and expos). Most of all i think i'd love the Gauntlet, Slime World and Zarlor ones

Those are great! I'd love to have a Xybots and STUN Runner gracing my walls. I always thought it was funny how Gates of Zendocon re-used the ship from 2600 Asteroids.

Great art pieces and very nicely framed.
Some mat color choices are a bit weird though (in particular - a cream mat for Xenophobe?)
The reuse of the Asteroids ship is awkward indeed - always thought that this cover was a rush composition made by an art director, surprised to see that it was an actual painting.
Odd they went so blant with this on. Gates of Zendecon might not have been a sensation, but it was solid enough to deserve a more memorable cover.
A pity about the smear in the Ms Pac-Man painting - one of my favorite Lynx covers!

So Vindicators wasn't released. I thought it was.
There is a pin for it.
Was this the Vindicators Lynx pin the only one created for an unreleased game?

Dig these! Michael Mendheim did the Cyberball and Xeno ones. He is actually in the Chicago area near me and also created the original (and current) Mutant League Football games.
He did Fester's Quest as well but obviously not for the Lynx.
I've never met him but several years ago he was kind enough to respond to my email to tell me he had no art for sale.

Ok let's see.
Fascinating - what's the story behind this and are these yours? If so, how did you acquire them if you don't mind sharing? Very cool! =D

The National Enquirer MUST know....WHO HAS THESE! This pure freakin' cool gaming history. These are valuable, or will be someday. I love it. I have artist friends that would drool over these. Plus, they are Atari related. How cool are those? These need to be in the public view someday, in a gaming museum. I wonder if Jack or Sam EVER appreciated these while they hung in the Atari Hallwaays? Yummmy.

Sad. American Pickers may come across these someday in an old gamer's barn. We don't know what we till it's gone. Sounds like a song lyric.

Paging Doc Brown, we need his DeLorean stats! Hop back to when they threw out the pictures, and salvage what you guys didn't save and bring it back today. The only change in timeline is worm got less food to chew on at the landfill.

The Atari Lynx and Nintendo NES have the same box art. Strange that it was on the walls at Atari.

Which game are you referring to?
Posted Thu Sep 22, 2016 5:38 AM
Sorry I should have put Double Dragon lol!
Posted Thu Sep 22, 2016 6:22 AM
As far as I know Double Dragon wasn't ever hanging on the walls of Atari. Only the pieces in the first picture were there.
The rest are pieces from my collection.
