Also available for pre-order is New Wave Toys’ exclusive “Overhaul Edition” Asteroids X RepliCade, a classy reinterpretation of a 40-year-old, well-worn Asteroids cabinet that appears lovingly refurbished and reconditioned. With its beautifully aged and patinated 3D bezel, a battle-scarred coin door, and a control panel “decorated” by cigarette burns, it’s a collectible that reflects the vintage quality of an item out of time while seeming to have weathered the years alongside you since those golden days of misspent youth. Limited to just 500 units, the Overhaul Edition is also available for pre-order for a special discount price of $90.00 (MSRP: $119.99).
