Space Invaders

Talk about iconic color schemes. I have a Taito Space Invaders in my arcade. I love it.

    I just picked one up a few days ago. It's missing the art on the inside so I'ma have to get that, but it was a pretty great deal so I'm not complaining. I actually thought about you when I was in conversation with the owner about the game and the sound effects and stuff like that. It's actually still in my car, I haven't moved it in the house yet.

    Space Invaders is like, the original arcade game. A must-have for any serious arcade or collection. Ever since I got my first arcade game 4-5 years ago I've been on the lookout for an original Space Invaders, so I'm glad to finally have one.

    Great find!! Glad you got one.

    The cardboard "sky" on mine is really faded. I need to spray paint it and put some flurescent stars on it or something. The plastic planet is in excellent shape. I need to find a replacement "white black light" bulb. Basically, it is a UV light with no filter, so you get white light plus UV light. A black light has a filter that only allows out the UV light, which seems to be too dim for what the creators wanted. One of my projects on the great list of things to get done.
