Remember that 1/12 scale SEGA Astro City? Well now it can have a friend! Taito and Hobby Wave are releasing a 1/12 scale kit of their Viewlix cabinet. While the typical Viewlix is in a red and white colorway, this one is blue and white, likely to coincide with the fact that the included game screens feature the 2D fighting game BlazBlue.
