LOS ANGELES – November 3, 2022 – New Wave is thrilled to announce that Missile Command x RepliCade, a faithful and fully playable 1/6-scale reproduction of the arcade hit, is now available for purchase. The classic is available in two variants; the Standard Edition ($149.99) looks just like what you’d see in your local arcade, while the limited-edition Field-Test Edition ($169.99) features an oversized illuminated marquee and cabinet detailing that accurately recreates Atari’s rarely seen pre-production units.
Missile Command X RepliCade Standard Edition is an accurate miniature recreation of the 1980 arcade original, featuring a Trak-Ball interface, illuminated Volcano-style buttons, and iconic cabinet art. A unique CRT FX lens transforms the built-in LCD to look like a CRT display from the era – scanlines and all. It’s the next best thing to the real deal, providing another great showpiece to RepliCade collectors.
The Missile Command X RepliCade Field-Test Edition includes everything from the Standard Edition along with some additional flourishes. Most notably the limited-edition cabinet features an oversized marquee panel that lights up and blinks. The taller cabinet also incorporates bold pre-production artwork on the control panel and cabinet. It’s an impressive collectible that will bring back memories for those fortunate enough to have seen one in the wild or anyone who revels in ’80s nostalgia.
