LEGO in collaboration with Bandai-Namco has announced a new Lego set where you can build a Pac-Man arcade cabinet.
Before you get too excited, you can’t actually play Pac-Man on it. However the set will seemingly include not only the cabinet, but also a display model of Blinky, Clyde, and Pac-Man himself.
The cabinet itself will also hold a small vignette of a female minifig playing with her own smaller Pac-Man arcade cabinet. The back panel will open on the main cabinet when fully constructed for storage of the vignette.
A product image shows some moving parts inside of the cabinet. According to the product announcement, the coin slot will light up and other features are handwaved as “easter eggs”, so it won’t be until the set releases on June 1 that we’ll know what it does.
“LEGO VIP members will have early access to purchase the LEGO PAC-MAN Arcade set from 1st June 2023 from LEGO.com/PAC-MAN and LEGO Stores, or available to all from 4th June 2023 at the recommended retail price of $269.99 / €269.99 / £229.99.”
