Hey guys. We're excited to announce our new buttons for Fall/Winter 2014! Each season we'll release a new collection of buttons in a limited run of 26 sets. Each set will come with five different buttons in a little baggie, and we'll introduce new button designs each season. The five buttons included in our first collection are:

 

 

  1. Have You Played Atari Today?
  2. Classic Atari CX40 Joystick
  3. Pac-Man
  4. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
  5. atari.io

 

 

 

We're giving these away free to the first 26 forum members who want them. It's just a little thank you to everyone for being part of the forums. If you'd like a set, send a PM with your mailing address to The Professor or DeLorean Silhouette from the moderating team. (FedEx can't deliver to PO Boxes)

 

Here's a closer look at the buttons:

We also made this video, which inspired the idea for the buttons:

BTW we're still making buttons, so if there's a huge demand and everyone wants one it may take a few days before they're ready to ship  :D

I'd like a pack, please. Do you still have my address or do I need to send it to you again?

I have your address, Fire_in_the_Valley. Yes, they are small buttons, slightly larger than a nickel. Everyone here should have their buttons in the morning!
