Play with your Pixels!


What do you get when you take the idea of a Litebrite and mix it with just another reason classic gaming still rocks? .S! (dot S) While most of the following site is in Japanese, I'm sure you can easily navigate your way through it. Create your own classic video game characters by pushing the pins through the holes (you can do it, I know you can!) Actually, when viewing the actual product in some pictures, it looks quite lame, but I thought it was worth showing anyways.

"Tomytec releases a series of peg toys where one creates recognizable video game characters by using hundreds of pegs that are plugged into a board. For example, the Dig Dug set includes 520 pegs of various colors which are arranged to create Dig Dug, Pooka, or a snaggle-toothed Fygar. There's also a Pac-Man set which also includes 520 pegs to create Pac, Inky, or Blinky. Instructions are included with each set to create other characters from popular games of yesteryear.

"Each Dot-Pin set includes a few hundred pegs of different colors and two pegboards to create your designs on. We're experimenting with the pegs to create other characters such as Ms Pac-Man (red lips are her distinguising characteristic), Q*Bert, Popeye, and others." - source: NCRX

Five styles are in stock:

Pac Man
Dig Dug

Or create your own in a nifty flash version
