New Wave Toys Reveals Asteroids Mini Arcade Cabinet

New Wave Toys revealed a brand new mini arcade cabinet today as they are giving the miniature treatment to Asteroids. In partnership with RepliCade and Atari, they have created a 12-inch-tall replica of the legendary arcade classic, fully playable, and detailed down to the stickers on the side. This is designed to match the cabinets you would find if you walked into an arcade in the '80s. You can currently pre-order it on their website at a reduced price, which will last until November 5th. Right now that price is just $90, but that will shoot up to $120 after the pre-order sale ends, with units expected to be shipped out in December. We have the details of what's inside each package for you below.
