Video games as art, literally

Designer Erick Scarecrow created the $30 Soopa Coin-Up Bros. as an homage to classic arcade machines.

Here's a cool little collectible vinyl toy we saw this weekend, in the form of a quirky anthropomorphic video game cabinet. Apparently, there's an entire subculture of fans who collect these limited edition vinyl toys (although they're not really very toy-like, with no moving parts and limited production runs).

Designer Erick Scarecrow created the $30 Soopa Coin-Up Bros. as an homage to classic arcade machines, and its blank surface (available in white, black, green, orange, and a few other colors) can be customizedwith paint, markers, or stickers--giving a new twist to the old games-as-art debate.
