It’s taken a while but today we can finally announce – and show – what we’ve been working on for the past 12 months. The full announcement and prototype images are below and we hope you love it as much as we do. The final product, coming in December, will look even better than the prototype – imagine that!
The Retro Electro Officially Licensed SEGA Mega Drive 1:2.3 scale model
Wouldn’t it be great if games fans could easily build a collection of old retro consoles and computers? Unfortunately for most, the old systems are becoming harder to find and increasing in price – not to mention finding the space to display them all! Retro Electro Models aim to solve this with miniature and accurate representations of classic games consoles, home computers and consumer electronic. The Retro Electro SEGA Mega Drive 1:2.3 scale model is the first of these officially licensed miniatures and measuring 12cm will look great on display. The model comes with a Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge, a controller (with display stand), a replica of the original retail box, an infocard made to look like the original manual and a cool display stand to place the console on. Where possible the switches and cartridge mechanisms also work and in the case of this SEGA Mega Drive, the power, volume and cartridge slot all move.
NOTE: As our models are non-functioning it allows us to concentrate on detail and accuracy. When the classic games from the era can be played on many other modern platforms why ruin a great replica with USB and HDMI ports!
