I purchased Yar's Return last Fall from Atari, now LRG is selling all three of the limited editions!
I went with the standard version which is substantially less in price, but if you're looking for all three games, LRG has them. They are however only selling the more expensive Limited Edition versions of the games.

When I checked the Atari XP website, they seem to only be selling the Yar's Return game at this point. If you're dying to get these rare games on cartridges, now's the time. Rumor has it they are shipping in July.
