One of the pillars of the original video game boom of late the 1970’s was Space Invaders. The simple premise sees players control a laser cannon that can move left and right, defending against a large group of alien creatures slowly march down the screen. As the game progresses, the creatures move faster. The game spawned numerous spin offs, clones and knock offs and has been ported to just about anything that can play video games.
Now, after over 40 years, the first collectible action figure from the game is being produced. Taito, publishers of the original game, have shared photos of a prototype for a Figma Space Invaders Monster action figure being produced by Good Smile Company. The figure is actually based on the artwork from the sides of the classic arcade cabinet. We will update when further details are released.
