Galaxian Coleco Tabletop Arcade - Model 2380
(Coleco - 1981)
Stuffed inside this unsuspecting mini arcade shaped cabinet is a playable version of the arcade hit, Galaxian. The egg shaped joysticks are easily manipulated by your left thumb and is responsive and auto centers quickly. Below the joystick is the all important fire button. The small multi-color VFD screen (vacuum fluorescent display) is vivid and bright, but is still big enough to show the action without feeling cramped. The cabinet is constructed of sturdy plastic.
This unit, like the other Coleco Tabletop arcade units, suffers from glue bleed-through on the stickers, giving the decals a spotted, mottled look. It is rare to find one of these Galaxian units that has stickers in clean condition.
The battery cover under the unit is lost pretty easily, so make sure this cover is intact when purchasing one of these. the battery cover has a mini set of instructions adhered to it. It holds four C cell batteries or Coleco's optional Perma Power AC power adapter.
