It’s been 43 years since the release of the classic arcade game Pac man. To celebrate its birthday, Lego recently announced a new premium set based on the 1980s Pac-Man. Reports claim the 2,650-piece set was created to mimic a Pac-Man arcade cabinet. The machine is complete with an illuminated coin slot, a four-way joystick and a mechanical chase.

Pac-Man is 43 years old game now
Talking about the design of the Pac-Man machine, there is a stool on the side of the cabinet that players can easily turn to move the characters through the maze of the game. In addition, the set comes with a diorama of a figurine playing a smaller version of the arcade cabinet. On top of the cabinet are spinning versions of Pac-Man and the ghosts Blinky and Clyde.
The Lego Pac-Man price is set at $269.99 when it goes on general sale on June 4. However, let me tell you that it will be available to Lego VIP members a few days early on June 1st. You’re probably wondering why the price is the same as Lego’s other recent homage to the Nintendo Entertainment System after last year’s price hike. Lego specified that this Pac-Man machine is designed for people 18 and older. It is undoubtedly the latest in a series of video game collaborations from Lego, which includes a series of interactive Super Mario sets in addition to the NES console.
The Pac-Man machine was unveiled after 43 years on the day Bandai Namco first tested the game with members of the public in 1980. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that it is the most popular arcade game of all time.
