Yeah, I'm figuring that customs and shipping would pretty make it RRP. If it was any higher than the Super Early Bird, then I'm not so sure it would be worth it.Nice, I don't recognise that LCD surround though - not enough mushrooms for me, although the control board background appears to be a reproduction of the original.
I'm not that happy about ordering stuff from the states that costs that much, because I've been caught with kickstarter before and had to pay duty and po fees. I guess that would probably just punt it back up to the RRP from the early bird price though, so not all that bad.
I thought the same initially, but I'm really, really glad they did. All the replicas and mini-arcades I've seen before have been 'standard' type controllers, but the trackball was what I loved about that game; it's unusual, and I don't see many other replicas being created.I wonder why they picked a game with a trackball, must be one of the harder controllers to scale down and keep playable.
I guess depending on one's perspective, it could certainly be seen as such. But looking at all current type items in the market that retail for $20-$50, or past table top replica's like the Coleco ones, this is really a bargain. And with those games, they are very poor representations of the original coin-ops they mimic. With poor controls, along with rather poor game play compered to the OG's.At the current price it's just too expensive.
