TMNT 1/4-scale playable arcades announced by Numskull Designs

The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Turtles in Time arcades have been recreated in miniature form and feature limited editions signed by TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade games are having a heck of a good couple years and the goods keep coming with a new announcement from Numskull Designs. The movie and gaming merch maker has created 1/4-scale playable replicas of the original Konami TMNT and Turtles in Time arcade machines, complete with little stools and ports to plug in your favorite controllers. It’s the latest in the company’s line of Quarter Arcades. What’s more, there are limited editions of these arcades signed by TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman. They are set to launch sometime in December 2023.

Numskull announced its 1/4-scale replicas of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Turtles in Time cabinets with sale pages on Just Geek and the Konami Online Shop on June 9, 2023. These are faithful recreations of the original cabinets, including original arcade ROMs of the games that make them fully playable. While it might be difficult to play this arcade with the tiny buttons and sticks, the coin bank on each machine acts as a secret little door to a USB-C port that you can then plug either an official Numskull Designs Quarter Arcades controller or one of your preferred gamepads such as an Xbox controller.

Numskull went all out to ensure that these TMNT arcades look good and play like they should, but they also sweetened the deal with some pre-order goodness. If you order the cabinet on the Konami Online shop, you will receive an exclusive Quarter Arcade coin depending on the cabinet you went with. Ordering on Just Geek will get you a miniature stool to go with your miniature cabinet, making for an even more fun diorama. However, Just Geek also has collector’s editions of each cabinet that have been signed by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles original co-creator Kevin Eastman. In all cases, the standard mini-cab will retail at $299.99 USD while the Kevin Eastman-signed collector’s editions run for $399.99 USD.
