Q*Bert POP! Figure Is Way Easier to Play with Than the Actual Game

by Shane McGlaun

Thinking back on my youth spending all the quarters I stole out of my dad’s change cup at the arcade, the video game I hated most was Q*Bert. He always jumped right off the top even when you pushed the joystick the right direction. Clearly he’s a cheater. We all know it, we could just never prove it.

I always hated that game, but damn if I didn’t want to beat it, so spend quarters I did. I always regretted putting them into the slot the second I did. My money was much better spent on Galaga. Even looking at this Q*Bert POP! Action figure makes me mad.  If I had all those quarters back I wasted on that orange bastard, I’d probably have enough to buy the arcade machine.

Entertainment Earth has this most annoying of arcade creatures for $10.99(USD), and it’s in stock for shipment. I know they programmed this dude to randomly jump off the steps of his pyramid just to cost me quarters. I know they did.
