Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
We’ve reached the months of the year where a cup of warm tea really hits the spot! Because of that my percentage of Japanese snacks has increased quite substantially! (Mostly dango!)
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at one of FREEing’s items that went up for preorder earlier today…
NAMCO Arcade Machine Collection
(Tank Battalion / PAC-MAN / Galaga / Galaxian / RALLY-X)!
Legendary NAMCO brand arcade game machines are being transformed into 1/12th scale miniatures! The game line-up includes classic games such as Tank Battalion, PAC-MAN, Galaga, Galaxian and RALLY-X!
Using the original designs of the arcade machines the shape and size together with the placement of the joysticks and buttons and even the artwork have all been miniaturized as faithfully as possible! The machines can easily be used together with 1/12th scale figures to have your favourite figures playing the classic NAMCO games!
Legendary arcade game machines recreated in detailed miniature size!
I’m sure there are many figure fans out there that will remember these arcade machines! They have all been faithfully converted into 1/12th scale miniature size for fans to enjoy as is, or to display with similar sized figures such as figmas! ★
The actual frame of the machines are obviously made to look just like the originals, but that’s not all! The actual screen, the position of the buttons and even the area to insert the coins are all intricately made and faithful to the original machines!!
These are all ‘upright’ video arcade machines, which simply means they are made to be played while standing! It brings back memories of the retro games from the movie ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ for me! (∩・∀・)∩
The line-up includes these five games!
– Tank Battalion –
– PAC-MAN –
– Galaga –
– Galaxian –
– RALLY-X –
（。´-`）.｡oO（ I know of PAC-MAN and Galaga thanks to the movie Pixels, but I honestly don’t know anything about the other three… but they are so colorful and the 8-bit graphics look so cute!）
This should give a better idea of the size! ♪
▲ The 1/12 scale matches with figma figures nicely! ☆
The joysticks and buttons on the machines have all been elaborately included on the designs, so posing the machines with someone to play on them creates a rather realistic scene!
▲ I can just imagine the clicky-clacky sounds of the joystick moving!
Plus if you line-up a number of the machines you can recreate a complete game arcade for your figures!! This should allow for all sorts of fun situations in the figure world!! ヽ(゜∀゜ヽ 三 ノ゜∀゜)ノ
▼Here we have The Thinker carefully thinking which game to play with his ¥100 coin!
▼ “Man… this guy is good!” The kind of thing most people think when watching someone play.
As you can see they are awesome to display just by themselves, but using them as accessories to figures can create a lovely world for your figures to come alive in! (/ω＼)
Add some classic arcade games to your figure collection!
Currently up for preorder! ♥
