    Quarter scale Pac-Man for pre-order

    Has anyone heard about these 1/4 scale Pac-Man machines

    http://www.numskull.com/quarter-arcades/

    Very authentic looking and seem to play well too based on limited reviews on youtube

    They are planning Galaga, Galaxian and Ms Pac-Man ones too.

    Local pricing is around $278 and can pre-order from JB, EB Games or Zing (owned by EB) for delivery early Dec 2018.

    https://www.jbhifi.com.au/retro-gami...abinet/324805/
    https://ebgames.com.au/loot-246432-O...e-Cabinet-Loot
    https://www.zingpopculture.com.au/th...hings-For-Home

    JB seems to need full payment (and delivery only), EB is $50 and Zing is $10 upfront and seem to be able to pickup at EB stores.

    Would be cool if they can be hacked for a multi-game but I guess a game that uses more than a joystick would be handier. Might need to wait a little.

    I was planning to build a 1/4 scale Donkey Kong (and others) if I ever get some spare time as my little CNC router can handle the size.

    god, they're getting smaller....

    17" tall and a 5" display it's little more than a novelty

    Yeah, bit of a gimmick but I like the authenticity of it compared to other crap that has been spat out over the years.

    They look way smaller than 1/4 size, more like 1/4 size of a 1/4 size

    I bought the New Wave Toys Centipede cab and love it. Making me want to pick up this Pac Man one and start a set a both. Price is a bit rough though so probably won't.

    I built a miniature donkey kong cab earlier in the year. It sits in my office at work. Plays surprisingly well and I have mastered it one handed.
    Sits 30cm tall and houses a 7 inch screen
    4 way joystick
    Raspberry pi zero w
    It has emulation station with all custom artwork,layout and video previews
    about 80 4 way joy single button games, mame only.
    Built in a week for about $100 in materials and parts

    I ordered straight from New Wave when it was on sale. It cost $174USD total with shipping. Pretty steep but I love the Centipede art so was sucked in.
