Dragon's Lair Arcade Machine Replica in Sixth Scale

New Wave Toys is proud to announce the latest addition to our RepliCade Amusements mini arcade line: Dragon's Lair x RepliCade!

This 12 inch replica arcade machine Looks, Plays and Controls just like the vintage 1983 Dragon's Lair Arcade Machine! 

PROTOTYPE SHOWN - subject to change

This fully-playable, arcade-accurate replica is being developed by New Wave Toys in Los Angeles, CA and is officially licensed by Digital Leisure Inc.

PROTOTYPE SHOWN - subject to change

Dragon’s Lair, created by the legendary animator Don Bluth, was unleashed in arcades in 1983 and featured the most advanced graphics of its time, by far. The game was incredibly challenging to master, and was notably the first game to charge 50¢ per credit. Now, New Wave Toys is creating the ultimate collector's edition replica machine in 1/6th PlayScale

PROTOTYPE SHOWN - subject to change

Our Dragon’s Lair x RepliCade cabinet is constructed of premium wood, plastic and die-cast metal, and features a custom, second-screen scoreboard just like the original arcade machine!

RepliCade Amusements feature authentic arcade ROMs as originally released in the full-sized arcade cabinets. Our Dragon’s Lair cabinet is no exception! It runs the original Laserdisc game on the Daphne emulator, and features all of the diabolical yet rewarding difficulty you remember from the arcade release.

BONUS Mini Laserdisc Player Replica!

PROTOTYPE SHOWN - subject to change

And because Dragon's Lair ran on Laserdisc, we had to include this replica 1/6 scale first gen Laserdisc player as well! This 1/6 PlayScale reproduction comes complete with removable mini remote and is stored in a Rear Cabinet Storage Drawer.  

KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!

Yup we did! We modified our die-cast metal Insert Coin Key chain that you all know and love to commemorate the first game that charged 50¢ a credit.  Limited edition ONLY available on Kickstarter!

What size is the Dragon’s Lair x RepliCade cabinet?

PROTOTYPE SHOWN - final cabinet dimensions are subject to minor changes before release.

Our Dragon's Lair replica cabinet has been designed with all of the fine, 1/6 scale details you've come to expect from RepliCade Amusements. Our handheld, fully functional arcade-art master piece will fit in perfectly with your 1/6 scale toys & collectables on your bookshelf, bar or desk. Our goal is to maximize the gameplay experience while staying as true to the original cabinet's design as possible.

What are RepliCade Amusements?

 At New Wave Toys, we believe that bringing home a real arcade experience means more than simply playing the original arcade ROM. The video arcade experience is a blend of many elements, and to truly bring that experience into your home requires great attention to detail.

RepliCade Amusements combine a blend of traditional design and materials with modern technology to recreate your favorite arcade classics in sixth scale.

RepliCade Amusements Line up (prototype and future products shown)

These miniaturized arcade machines are fully playable and officially licensed by the original manufacturers. Every detail in these amazing works of arcade art has been painstakingly reproduced, including:

What's the Money Going Toward?

We are asking to raise $75,000 here on Kickstarter. The initial product development expenses and licensing fees have already been paid. The money we raise here will be spent buying components for our first order, as well as covering expenses related to mass production such as QA/QC inspections, compliance testing and inbound shipping from China.

Risks and challenges

The team we’ve assembled for this project have over 20 years of experience in software development and electronics manufacturing.

We are well underway with product development and have completed all tasks through the Engineering Prototype phase. Typical production risks include components taking longer to receive than expected, compliance testing delays, post-Chinese New Year staffing delays, and software bug delays.

All of these are commonly expected issues and we have years of experience working through them. We are very confident we will deliver to you a beautiful end-product you will be excited to receive.
