A dear friend of mine has just sent me some astonishing photos of an Italian Tomy shop stand in the form of a table.

I have seen similar things in the past from other manufacturers. I have no memory of this particular one made by Tomy.

The unit/able has been stored in a warehouse for years, wrapped in cling wrap. It appears in gorgeous state of repairs.

All games are fully functional and work through a centralised AC adaptor.

The owner even had saved the original game boxes, I was told they are in perfect shape, too.

Instructions in Italian are also printed on a plaque on the table.

Note the Italian distributor was "Tomy Sebino".

Note the Pac Man sticker, with name marked as 'Puck Man' and different art. Lovely.

Enjoy the photos.

NOTE FOR RIK: Images have been uploaded to Imgur. Please get them and add to the Museum before they are removed from the Imgur server.

Well, Linda... it DOES belong to a museum! Smile

That is the owner's new museum dedicated to videogame magazines, a sort of library with a retro-gaming space. They have conferences, arcade nights, etc.

So the 'table' is in now very good hands!
