As a lover of all things gaming, and retro titles in general, the offer to take a look at Pixel Pals was just too appealing.
These light-up figurines are full of pixelated glory and feature video game icons from both past and present. The first two in the series are some of our all-time favorites, Mario and Mega Man. True to form, both pieces capture every last detail in softly-lit piece of free-standing pixel art.
Each figure stands about six-inches tall and runs on two (included) AAA batteries. A quick flick of the on/off switch in the rear lights up each faux-pixel and really makes the characters look amazing. These aren’t the type of toys you’re going to want to keep in the box.
Pixel Pals available exclusively at GameStop and for a mere $15. You can get yours starting November 25.
I really can’t think of a better budget gift for gamers — or yourself.
