Danish LEGO enthusiast Jimmy Jakobsen aka Jimmy-DK’s Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T. may have not made pass the LEGO Ideas review, but he ain’t stopping. The man next LEGO Ideas submission will tug the heartstrings of folks who grew up in the 70s and 80s too.
Everyone, meet the LEGO Ideas Pac-Man Arcade. A brick-built version of Namco’s highly popular arcade cabinet from the 80s that is roughly 1/5the the scale of the original.

The LEGO Ideas Pac-Man Arcade also features all the details that made it an arcade cabinet, including joystick and buttons, and coin door. Where most arcade cabinet has an open back, Jimmy’s LEGO Ideas Pac-Man Arcade has a door that opens up to reveal the battery that powers the light function.
