i recently decided to spend some of my t-shirt earnings on myself (most of them went to the house / our christmas fund) so i bought a few things that are complete wastes of money, while simultaneously completely awesome.
first, i got some miniature arcade cabinets:
seen here guided by the expert hands of twin shia's.
i got these bad boys from the big j.w., he makes custom made cabinets from centipede to donkey kong... not that those 2 titles necessarily run the gamut of gaming cabinets...
they are well constructed, much lighter than i expected, and decently put together. i was a little disappointed at the low-res pacman graphics when compared to the clear t2 cabinet's graphics.
the next thing i bought was a 1:15 scale back to the future 2 diamond select delorean (with lights and sounds from the movie!) i'm feeling a bit of buyer's remorse, solely from the price tag. but it is still an awesome detailed piece of chunky fun. (chunky fun was my username on match.com... no, i was never really on match.com, but i couldn't resist including that)
if i had a shia to scale with the delorean, i would share photos, but alas, i have not. and pictures of an empty delorean just seems sad.
so instead, i leave you with this:
