Typically New Wave is asking for $159.99 for these mini replicas. The sale ends on November 28th.

I can attest to their quality if you’re on the fence about New Wave’s replica cabinets. I own the crowdfunded Dragon’s Lair machine and the more commercially available Centipede cabinet. Both are amazing in both detail and functionality. The trackball for Centipede worked surprisingly well, considering its small size. The only complaints I’ve had concerning firmware and some screen issues. Centipede required a special cable from New Wave Toys to update the firmware to fix a power issue. This took a while and should have been figured out before the final product was sent to market.

The screen issue didn’t involve the LED display but the protective screen. The cabinets, like their full-size counterparts, are made primarily from wood. So, there’s more chance of debris finding its way into areas it shouldn’t. My Dragon’s Lair cabinet had a small piece of black painted wood stuck just under the plastic screen. To get it out would require taking apart a large portion of the machine, and I don’t want to risk it, considering Dragon’s Lair may never be re-released by New Wave Toys.
