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 And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a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. Atari Lynx Pins

Atari produced official Atari Lynx lapel pins for a number of games. These were never officially released in US but did come inside game boxes for a number of French releases. The pins were mostly for released games except for Vindicators, which never saw a release.

Atari France ran a promotion in 1991 that included betting these pins in versus games on the Atari Lynx against your friends. Read more about that promotion here. A limited number of Lapel Pin Coffret / Display Cases were also produced during this period.

Game Pins🕸

There were 34 game lapel pins in total.

Atari Lynx Pins🕸

In addition to the game pins, there were other pins in the official collection. These were 'Atari Lynx' pins. Two variants were produced that looked the same on the front but had different clips on the back.

Other Pins🕸

Other pins that were not part of the official collection but may be of interest were...

Official Australian Atari Lynx Club
Steel Talons

The Steel Talons pin was not a Lynx pin, it was based on the original arcade game. There was no Lynx logo anywhere in the pin, only a mention to Atari Corporation, which was the branch of Atari in charge of arcade cabinets at that time.
Thanks to Juan for this bit of history.
