$10,000+ Space Invaders Watch: Drop Down, Reverse Direction and Empty Bank Account!
This wouldn’t be the first Space Invaders watch I’ve featured on the site. It’s not even the first rare Space Invaders watch. But it is – for sure – the first one to cost $10,000. Actually, the guys over at Perpetuelle are just guessing at that price.

Bubble Bobble Monster Pillows Won’T Pop When You Sit on Them

This highly-collectible Space Invaders LED watch came out a couple of years back in Japan, but I certainly could never find a place to buy one. Until now.
