Takara 1/6 Space Invaders game table Coin Bank


Saw this in local toy shops & took it home as i saw "1/6" with retro packaging.

Well, not quite 1/6, the tables abit short for a 1/6, maybe it's meant for playing while sitting as i never seen a real Space Invader system.

It's actually a gamewatch where you need to insert 100yen or equivalent sized coin and you can play the space invader game. It's pretty difficult to play so far i only managed 3 stages before i run out of 100yen...

The difficult part is removing the display LCD sticker and replace it with blank colored sticker. You need to really clean the screen before you apply the sticker without scratching the surface, and you need to make it dust free which seems impossible for me . Everytime i dust it off i notice small white spots of dust emoticon. The LCD screen is monotone if it's for display i would recommend keeping the original display sticker instead.

Requires 3 AA batteries.

Ray Stanz is sold out now, only Egon available. Thanks for the offer for the Space Invaders game, but no thank you. I thought it was very neat, I was just wondering how much it cost. emoticon

Well, i'm suprised he's only sold out after so long. Need to try my luck on ebay.

The machine cost around USD$60. In Yen is 5500yen.
