So I recently found out about this company called New Wave Toys and have kinda fallen in love with their mini arcade machines. Pretty good quality in terms of build and surprisingly kinda playable despite being like 12 inches tall each.

The change machine is actual a usb hub to charge all the arcades which I thought was cute.

I’m kinda late to the party on these so trying to get these on eBay is insane but luckily found Centipede, Tempest and Asteroids at a reasonable price from a single seller...tho they were dirty as hell. Missle Command and the change machine are still available through their site...as is Q-Bert and 1942.

4 classic Atari cabinets and a ROWE BC-3500 Bill Changer. Nice. Even the Asteroids cabinet has the original coin door design. Great thing about that particular door in real life: the ability to rack up multiple games using a stringed quarter :tickled:

The attention to detail they take is pretty awesome. And they don’t just do arcades. I also got a couple of m90 boom box replicas coming. :buttrock:


Next month I think they have Food Fight, Dragons Lair and Space Ace coming out. I may get Food Fight but will probably pass on the others.

Some days, I wake up with burning envy over Rugal Bernstein and HDRchampion's amazing statchoo collections and I have to buy one too.

This is Overlord Albedo, some succubus from a manga/anime I've never read/seen. I just thought she looked cool.

Got a couple more gadgets from my new favorite company New Wave Toys….couple of Bluetooth / radio m90 boom boxes for my kids. I figured the big one they can take out and listen to when playing the yard, and the little one they can keep for their dollhouse.

Surprisingly good quality, they are heavy, sound is good, 30 watts on the big one and 6 watts on the little one.

And again, attention to detail on everything…even the packaging is amazing. Love this company’s stuff, I am hooked.

That's a sharp bot.

Not a huge fan of the backpack, but I'd be lyin' if I said I wouldn't snatch it up if I had the pesos.

I don't buy figures too often, but I do enjoy having a small representation of figures from my fave games so long as they're quality. I usually buy 2 or 3 figures a year if I had to guess.

Scooped up this new Terry and Geese from Studio24 last month. They have a series of statues based on Shinkiro's art from Fatal Fury Special. These are pretty baller. Haohmaru and Iori are from Storm Collectibles and Mai is...I don't know what that's from. lol Got her years ago.

Was £450 - used
Mp10 going to soften the blow
Jezuz…

My MP collecting experience goes like this. I bought a MP01 off a guy for $65 because the box was water damaged by Hurricane Katrina. This was the JP version, it was still wired to the back insert of the box so I have every part.

Then…I just never liked any of the other ones. They all seem too stylized or not deluxe enough. It has flaws, but MP01 was the apex, IMO.

I knew wrestling was fake even as a little kid, but somehow I was still surprised to find out Sgt. Slaughter was never in any branch of the military. Never even in Civil Air Patrol, Parks Department, Cub Scouts, nothing.

Yeah, it's kind of lame that Sarge uses the military schick as his gimmick when he never actually served, but, then again, it is wrestling entertainment and he's certainly believable in that role.

Cobra Commander would probably have some legal wiggling room if Sarge ever captured him, since he's not legitimate military. 😁
