Build Your Own Arcade Machine... toy

I've dreamed for years of building my own Arcade Machine. I've gathered up the plans many times, and budgeted out each expense, but each time I talk myself out of it.

But now maybe I can get my feet wet with this little baby, and first draw on this blank vinyl figure what I think is my dream machine. If course you can't play it, but oh man, you can sure as heck pretend you are playing the ultimate version of "Super Voc@loid Sisters (my dream game)".

The figure was made by toy company Soopa. Sadly by the time I found out about this thing, they are no longer in production, but you can still pick them up cheap off ebay. But if anyone has a more reliable site that still sells these let me know.

Here are some pics of what some people have done with this thing:

And here's a blast from the past, Yo! Noid:
