Replicade Amusements miniature arcade games at Best Buy
What began via crowd funding seems to have found a home at Best Buy beginning this Fall. They're already listed on Amazon.
Miniatures have been increasingly popular in retro gaming as a way of reliving the glorious arcade cabinets we played on as kids. Many of us have carried forth that passion and still love finding a vintage arcade game awaiting a quarter. New Wave Toys had a successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year with their replicade Amusements' miniature arcade games.

These 1/6 scale arcade wonders are fully functional and highly accurate from their visual design and artwork to the original arcade ROMs that deliver the games we've loved since the 80s. When we first saw these awesome games the were pictured with a vintage 12" G>I. Joe - he was the perfect size. Gotta love that!

This is going to be a great partnership with Best Buy. As traditional outlets like Toys R Us leave the marketplace, electronics stores, like Best Buy, have an opportunity to broaden their product offering. A popular destination for gamers, Best Buy should do quite well offering New Wave Toys.

Keep an eye out for these classic arcade cabinets at your local Best Buy, with more titles to come!
