One of the most formative experiences of my life was when my dad showed me how to play Space Invaders on his Intellivision. Since that day, I've been fated to be a nerd.

A brand called The Coop are releasing 10 colorways of the iconic Space Invader characters, including some translucent colors, a GID version, and a DIY version. You can pick one up for $12 at Rotofugi.
