Arcade Cabinets For Your GI Joes

Illustration for article titled Arcade Cabinets For Your GI Joes

Disillusioned by the way the recent GI Joe movie treated the 1980's take on the franchise? You're not the only one. Spare a thought for the plastic Joes themselves, who must now console themselves with endless games of Tempest.

And Pac-Man, and Galaga, and Donkey Kong. The bleeps and bloops of decades-old arcade games are the only things keeping them from the bottle and some serious therapy.

These hand-made arcade cabinets cost around $25, and can be made to order. Me, I'll be requesting an NBA Jam cabinet, so SNake Eyes and Storm Shadow can finally just go at it.

There needs to be a Turtles in Time cabinet, or Gauntlet if you want to be REALLY Old School. ... *blinks* Oh, my bad. He DID Make a Gauntlet one! Okay, uh... how about Joust or Space Ace?
