Here's a photo of my Amiga A1200, the final Amiga microcomputer from Commodore after the A500 and A600 (of course, there were also desktop Amiga computers with more expansion capabilities, but I like the micros) which came out in 1992. It's running Workbench 3.1 which is installed on an 8GB SanDisk Compact Flash card in an IDE-CF adapter, and I have a mild expansion in the form of a DKB Cobra accelerator with a 28Mhz 68030 and 64MB RAM.
So I have been looking for this bizarre Atari Corp Defender label variation ever since I saw a picture of it about 2 years ago. Well, in June I was searching on ebay.de and found a listing for this variation. The bonus was it was CIB and in decent shape and priced reasonably even with the exchange rate. The problem was the item was in Germany and the seller was not shipping to the USA because of COVID19 package size restrictions to the USA. I had to find a way to get this title. I sent @Marc Oberhäuser a PM asking for a huge favor. He obliged and bought the item. But the COVID19 restrictions were still going to be a hurdle to get the box to me. Marc figured out that he could ship it to Canada with no restrictions if I knew someone in Canada to be another middleman in this transaction. I had a friend that I had made via the AA Facebook group and I asked if I could have Marc ship to him and he then ship it to me. He agreed. So after 2 months the package finally got to me. I was very excited to have this checked off of my wish-list and the bonus being it was CIB. I have also been working with @daniel.inforede on his "little project" providing box scans and tab pictures of some of my Atari Corp titles. He requested a picture of the Part Number tab and the printing date tab on this box. I never really thought much about it. The back of the box stated it was an 1987 release. But when I took a picture of the tab and it was April 1992 my jaw dropped to the floor. Crazy. Atari Corp was still having boxes printed in Europe in 1992. Who would have thought? Does anyone know of any other titles printed this late in the game for the 2600?
