New Wave Toys has announced that their Dragon’s Lair X RepliCade, the 1/6 scaled functioning replica of the original Dragon’s Lair arcade cabinet, is up for pre-order on Kickstarter. Pre-orders close on November 19, and allow buyers to get the cabinet for $90 rather than the MSRP of $119.99, set to ship in March 2020.

The cabinet stands at around 12 inches tall, and allows owners to play the game all the way through, emulating the original LaserDisc using the Daphne emulator. The control panel has a working joystick and buttons, along with a secondary display to show the player’s lives, score, and remaining credits. The cabinet is constructed out of wood with die-cast metal elements, with an LED-lit marquee and vinyl cabinet art. The cabinet also comes with a 1/6 scale replica LaserDisc player in the cabinet’s rear storage drawer.

The Dragon’s Lair X RepliCade is officially licensed by the game’s current publisher Digital Leisure, and shows off Don Bluth’s classic animation in as close to its original form as possible on its 4.2-inch screen. It joins New Wave Toys’ existing RepliCade lineup, also featuring Street Fighter II, Tempest, Centipede, and Asteroids.
