1/6 Scale Space Invaders game table may be the greatest toy ever.
How awesome is this? What I wouldn't give for a line of 1/6 scale replica arcade machines.
This 1/6 scale space invaders video game table is actually a bank that electronically counts yen.
The table takes 100 yen coins, and can take up to 80 of them. Each time a 100 yen coin is inserted the LCD lights up and counts the number of coins inside. Brilliant!
From TakaraTomy - due March 2009 for 5,500 yen.
Size: W 200 * H 105 * D 95 mm

Wow,I'm definately getting this.
I allready have these LCD games shaped like the upright cabinets for Centipede and Asteroids,allthough this blows them away in terms of accuracy. They aren't really shaped like the originals,and the joystick (yes even on Centipede) is in a different position. Still,they look cool on the shelf.
BTW I still keep an Atari hooked up in my bedroom and I still occasionally play a game of Space Invaders on it! (More often River Raid though)
