New "hand held game system" owner :)

Recommended Posts

Won this on ePay on the 29th, got it last night - nobody bid but me! :cool:

I guess most people search subjects for "Atari Lynx" (or I got lucky) -

 

Both systems are like new and so are all of the games & accessories -

I'm sure that you guys will think that I paid too much, but I'm pretty happy with the haul for less than 100 bucks shipped...

I'm impressed with the Lynx so far...

 

only 2 dups in the 24 games - anybody need Hockey or Football?

$75 isn't bad at all for what you got. I'd like to see what games you got with it, though. You should put up a list. Chances are you might have gotten some rare games in that lot.

I'll put up a list of the 22 games tomorrow - I got home pretty late last night, so I just quickly checked to make sure that both of the systems were working...

 

Sauron is trade-dibbed (my term :lol:) on Hockey & Football

Nice starter set! Paid too much? Bah! Pay whatever you want, so long as you're happy... I've paid "crazy" cheap prices for Lynx games and systems over the years, but I've also paid what many would consider nutty prices for Brand New In Box Lynxes recently, just 'cause I wanted to relive that moment of being the first person to play a new Lynx!

 

I'm looking forward to your list of games - lets see what you got! ;)

I know I'm probably over the top but I would like to restore Christmas 83 completely... Tree and all ESPECIALLY the 600xl and getting a games 20 cassette compilation and having to wait till easter for a 1010 program recorder lol!

 

but I've also paid what many would consider nutty prices for Brand New In Box Lynxes recently, just 'cause I wanted to relive that moment of being the first person to play a new Lynx!

I agree with this statement. As long as your happy, you got a good deal. I'm sure I've bought high numerous times, but in my mind it may have been a good deal.

 

You got a real nice instant collection, and you'll have some great times with the Lynx, it's probably tied for first on my list of favorite handhelds, right next to the Turbo Express, which I just recently got.

You got two Lynxes, two power supplies, two different Lynx holders and all those games for under $100... that's a fantastic deal, regardless of what games you got! Congrats!! The seller certainly was a bit of an idiot, not putting the words "Atari Lynx" in the title.

 

You now own two wonderful systems! I'll also be curious as to which games you got. For sure, with that many games, you'll have a handful of the good ones.

 

Cheers,

75 bucks for all that? GREAT DEAL! Battlezone is one of the best games for Lynx next to Alpine Games and Paperboy.

You got a great mix of games there, and happen to have a lot that I don't have yet. $75 for all of that is a hell of a deal.
