More Arcade Game Cabs Get Miniaturized

Remember those wonderfully detailed mini game cabinets by Justin Whitlock? Well it looks like Big J.W. is expanding his arcade repertoire, adding some new machines to the mini arcade menagerie.


Several new classic (and not so classic) arcade cabinets have recently surfaced on the artists’ Flickr page. Among the new machines are some of my faves like Asteroids, Millipede and Sinistar. And then there’s an awesome Terminator 2 game, complete with miniature gun controllers. He’s also getting set to release miniatures of Joust, Galaxian, Asteroids Deluxe, Burgertime, Mortal Kombat II and my personal favorite, Dig Dug.


Just like the original batch, each one of these mini arcade cabinets is handmade by J.W. using sturdy bass wood and detailed with colorful decals with graphics from the original arcade machines.


Prices for the new machines range from $20 to $30 (USD), and you’ll need reach out to Justin via e-mail if you want to order some for yourself. Check out the complete details here. As before, the little people aren’t included, but I’m sure your figurines will be lining up to play these games.
