While this probably won’t resonate with our younger readers, everyone else may lose their shit when they see this new Esty shop that’s dedicated to archiving arcade machines as miniature collectibles!
Created by 33 Games, a creative studio specializing in art and bespoke deluxe gifts inspired by classic video games, arcades, and pinball, these ridiculously cool replicas are made using wood, acetate, and plastic.
The artist does everything from 3-D art to pinball and arcade machines, all with the option of being lit with LED lights!
There aren’t just a handful available, with minis available for classic arcades such as X-Men, Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct, and Rampage, as well as pinball machines for everything from Tales From the Crypt(!) to Addam’s Family, Twilight Zone, Haunted House, Creature From the Black Lagoon, A Nightmare On Elm Street, The X-Files, Phantom of the Opera and many, many more.
If you’re an arcade fanatic like I am, all these minis hit the nostalgic sweet spot. They’re also awesome gifts…
