The LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine set is said to be part of the LEGO Icons portfolio and is rumored to clock in at 2,651 pieces with a price tag of $269.99 making it another pricier LEGO set that appeals to adult LEGO fans. It’s unclear whether this brick-built arcade machine will be functional, but with that price point, it is certainly expected to come up with plenty of play features and interactivity.
It is interesting to note that the price point of the LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine is somewhat within the same price range as another brick-built classic, the LEGO Icons Atari 2600 (10306) from last year. I can just imagine how good it will look to see these classic gaming superstars displayed alongside one another.
LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine Release Date and Availability
This brick-built classic set is expected to be officially released on June 1, 2023. And though LEGO is yet to make an official announcement, we can be sure that an official reveal may happen anytime within the next couple of weeks. We’ll see if LEGO will also offer this as a pre-order deal which the company is fond of doing lately.
LEGO Icons Pac-Man Arcade Machine and Other Video Games Inspired Builds
LEGO has been making sets based on popular video games for a while now. Just last week, they announced a series of LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog sets in collaboration with Sega. And as of to date, LEGO video gamers can also expand their collection with Nintendo-inspired sets such as the highly interactive Super Mario series, and the brick-built Nintendo Entertainment System.
The Pac-Man Arcade Machine set is an exciting addition to Lego’s video game-themed sets. With its impressive piece count and interactive features, it is going to be a sure hit among LEGO and video gaming fans. Stay tuned for more updates as LEGO makes an official announcement about this set anytime soon.
