We are moving all Atari Lynx related content over to Atari Lynx Vault and all our shop content over to K-Retro Gaming. Please update your bookmarks!

As a result of this change, the following will no longer be available: Online Lynx Emulator, Collection Tracker, Game Ratings, News. If you are interested in contributing content to Atari Lynx Vault, we are seeking editors and maintainers.

Why is this happening? First - the Atari Gamer branding is changing to K-Retro Gaming to allow us to expand to providing games, replacement parts, and mod services to other game consoles. And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a new and modern content management system and chose a website domain that better suits the subject matter. Since we are operating this website in our spare time, on top of full time family and job committments, some features had to be dropped.

  3. Console Box Protectors for Atari Lynx

A while ago I got my hands on a bunch of snug fit plastic sleeves from RetroGameFreak, which I loved. At that time I noticed they were also selling Atari Lynx Console Box protectors which I thought would be nice to have but I didn't have enough Lynx console boxes at the time to make them worthwhile. Well, now that I got more boxes, I wanted to put them on display so decided to give these protectors a go.

The end result? Crystal clear protectors that do an amazing job...

The protectors are made from quite rigid plastic. They feel to be at least 0.4 thickness, which is about that's required for a protector sleeve this size. Each of the protectors comes packed with protective tape of its own, which I found ironic. At first I actually thought the protectors weren't crystal clear but after removing the tape it was obvious they were.

The creased sides make putting the protector into its final shape really easy. There are snap-in tabs for the end parts/lids, which I'm of two minds about. They are nice in keeping the console box in place, especially for those boxes that have expanded with age. However, if you have a need to get the console box out these tabs become a little bit of a nuisance.

The protector is not visible at all once it's on except for its square edges. Perfect!

Unfortunately these only come in size for the Lynx 2 box so I'll be keeping an eye out for Lynx 1 versions in the future.

So would I recommend these? Yes, 100%, especially if you want to have your Atari Lynx boxes on display all the time like I have. The price of these is reasonable at €8.99/ea but the postage costs are a little high (€25 to post to Australia), which is why I waited until I had enough Lynx console boxes to make the postage worthwhile. All in all I am very happy with these.
