New Wave Toy’s Next Replicade Cabinet Is Missile Command!

0

With Q-Bert and 1941/1942 under their belts, New Wave Toys is moving on to a true classic from the height of the Atari days. The company that specializes in 1/6th scale arcade cabinets is going to be bringing us Missile Command!

Not just one cabinet, no-no. We’re getting two! For $139.99, you can get the standard setup you probably saw in your local arcade. For $159.99, you can pick up the Field Test version. This was seen by a select few as Atari tested out the game in specific markets. I’ve never seen one in the wild. So, that’s the version I’m going to snag!

The last Replicade machine that had a trackball was their original Centipede cabinet. While it was a pretty good replica, and the controls were pretty good for the size, the thing could benefit from a bit of tweaking. Unfortunately, it looks like New Wave Toys did just that. You’ve got to be pretty accurate if you’re going to hit those missiles on a tiny screen.

Missile Command x RepliCade features our new & improved, smooth rolling Trak-Ball XL™, CRT FX™ a convex transparent lens that looks like a CRT Television, fully customizable dipswitch and cabinet settings menu, and runs the original arcade Missile Command ROM.
