Space Invaders

Recently it was the 30th anniversary of the arcade game Space Invaders. To celebrate this a lot of merchandise was realeased. I found this at the local Village Vanguard.


It’s one of those mystery collectibles that are popular over here. You never know what you will get when you buy them. What was inside was this.


Two Space Invader magnets. I’m glad that I got the iconic crab invader in white. I was also surprised to a magnet of the monster from the cabinet artwork. Below you can see the whole line up.


It’s kind of hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since the debut of Space Invaders. I remember playing it on Atari when I was a child. I guess that makes me old!

    I miss the Atari and those early video games. Play those old games online is not the same .

    Damn, you know I ordered a few of these things once? Never did put them up.
