17th June 2023 1 hr 9 min

Once again two hobbies collide in the form of the Lego Arcade Pac-Man set. Who better to chat about it than Lego Grand Master Owen from Australian Lego Masters 2023. This week we also take a look at a very shiny TRS80 that turns out to be something special and there is a new joystick Kickstarter on the horizon.

All this and your Community Question of the Week!

We are kindly sponsored by Pixel Addict, the six weekly digital culture magazine. With articles about old tech, new games for old tech, hardware projects, movies and even old toys! Check it out at
