Atari VCS Backer Units are On the Way!

The Atari team has been putting the finishing touches on the long-awaited first batch of Atari VCS video computer systems and sending them to the United States where they will be sorted and shipped to eager Indiegogo backers very soon.

This shipment includes the one-time-only, Indiegogo-exclusive Atari VCS 800 Collector’s Edition model. Inspired by and designed as an homage to the original Atari 2600, there will only be 6,000 numbered and authenticated versions of this model.

Presented here for the first time, are assembly line photos of the actual Atari VCS 800 Collector’s Edition units, and other scenes from the factory earlier this month, including pallets of Atari VCS units prepped and ready to ship to the US for distribution.

We hope you enjoy the photos!
