Everyone that loved playing (or still plays) PAC-MAN will be happy to hear that the legendary video game has received a LEGO treatment. As part of their Icons series, the toymaker is releasing a set that will allow you to recreate the original PAC-Man arcade.
The set consists of 2,651 pieces and comes with all sorts of exciting features. For starters, you will be able to mechanically simulate the chase between PAC-MAN and Ghost Gang once the arcade is fully assembled. It also features a light brick that illuminates the coin slot. Unfortunately, the game won’t be functional, but that doesn’t make it any less fun.
Also included are pieces for a scene that shows a minifigure playing PAC-MAN in an arcade parlor. On top of that, you will get to build a display showing PAC-MAN, Blinky, and Clyde that can be mounted on the arcade.
The PAC-MAN Arcade set is set to be released on June 4, 2023, and will go for $269.99 on LEGO’s official website.
“Our team of talented designers worked tirelessly to capture the essence of the beloved PAC-MAN arcade machine in brick form, from PAC-MAN himself to the colorful, maze-like environment he inhabits,” said Sven Franic, designer of the new Icons set.
“Every detail was carefully considered and crafted, resulting in a one-of-a-kind LEGO creation that captures the magic of the original game while adding a playful new twist and a couple of Easter eggs – in true video game style.”
