Miniature Arcade Machines – handmade mini game machines are a perfect gift for the addict in your life

There are times when you need to enjoy something which isn’t too useful, but just hits the spot. That’s when something like a 1/12 scale handmade amusement arcade machine replica is the only thing that will do the job. And now you can own one yourself, instead of looking at photos.

This Miniature Arcade Machine is one of a range of 6 inch tall games console replicas which are beautifully hand-crafted from wood, paint and Perspex, to give you that full ‘just out of the game room‘ experience. The level of detail is insane, with 3D screens, joysticks and buttons, and gloss vinyl decals everywhere.

The artist has really worked hard to build out some gorgeous replicas, covering many of the most popular models of machine out there. And if you buy a three set you’ll get a special price. We’re just loving the dedication, and since they retail at just £22.95 ($34.54) each, we think they’re a total steal. And no, Marge, they’re not actual working models, for show only.
