New Kickstarter: SEGA Arcade: Pop-Up History.
« on: July 16, 2018, 09:56:57 AM »

How cool does this books look? The SEGA Arcade: Pop-Up History book is a double whammy of retro goodness, not only its a retro style pop-up book, not many of these released these days, and the core subject is retro arcade machines.

Its nice, but its pretty expensive at £35 for what is basically 5 pop up pages, i know he will be updating soon, certainly for me needs alot more content to be worth buying.

I am the same as you on that, not sure I could justify that cost even though it looks fantastic, needed to be at least 4 times the page count for me but then that has huge impact on the book size and then a knock on effect for postage and so on.

I'm you guys.  Looks great.  Too pricey. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

A fantastic concept, but 5 pop-ups are crazy for the price, but they are been made by a professional pop up artist, but fail to truly understand that Sega's arcade division had some many other games that could have also been included here, like House of the Dead, Virtua Cop series and so on, this book is for the Sega purist !
