We've had several requests for our Star Worlds: A Pocket Full of Tokens and I'm Heading to the Arcade DVD. We were out, but now we've got a second printing in. We're offering a package deal: 1 DVD, a 35th anniversary collector's cup, and a Star Worlds Arcade T-shirt. In house for $35.00, $47.00 shipped. Pac-man-Pat ... See moreSee less
I bet Byron Czopek and Andy Mclalghin are amazed what started out as a class project here at NIU is still going strong. We're still in contact with them both and couldn't be more proud of them and the accomplishments they've had over the past 9 years. It's been hands down my favorite project that I've been involved with. It captured so much of what Star Worlds Arcade is before a bunch of new versions of an arcade started popping up. Thanks guys, it's official. You're part of our long rich history! Pac-man-Pat
Many people already have the shirt and cup. We are checking on what the dvd and shipping will be if you want to just order that. -Pat
With the new found popularity of the Flintstones, we've been doing some major work on this Fred Flintstone egg vendor :). Like the Monkey Bizz-nezz machine we have at the arcade, this machine gives out prize eggs as Fred turns around and yells yabba-dabba-doo :). This machine came to us in pretty bad shape. With Glenn's woodworking skills, and my clean up and detailing skills, we're slowly bringing this gem back to life. This awesome retro machine is planed to go out to a new location that we're working with. Pac-man-Pat ... See moreSee less
I saw one of the Chicken Machines up at an antique mall in Janesville that still had the Hanna-Barbera eggs in the display window. The owner of the place said it wasn't for sale but you could still get an egg for a quarter. Can't wait to see you guys get this one up and running.
Classic! I was just telling Paige about this the other day she doesn't remember them. I remember them in a bunch of grocery stores near checkout Isle and the pizza places.
I remember there being one of these in Pizza Villa back in the day.
While we are closed things are still moving along in the background :). Just finished shopping out this awesome Super Pac-man by Bally Midway! This is one of two that are getting shopped out and looking and playing all great for Pac-man's 40th anniversary. What's your favorite version of Pac-man? Pac-man-Pat ... See moreSee less
