We remake old console hardware and parts for the new age
In need of a 'power-up' boost? Then why not turn to the little guy who originally invented the concept in the first place, with this retro-cool PAC-MAN Heat Change Mug.
When cold, this stoneware mug shows an empty PAC-MAN maze, but once a hot drink is added, the maze fills with all the characters from the classic game, including the legendary ghosts Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde, plus of course the round headed hero himself.
One of the most popular arcade games of all time, PAC-MAN's phenomenal success in the 1980s led to it becoming one of the defining characters of the decade, and an icon of popular culture. Hugely influential, the original arcade game was first released in Japan in 1980, and soon changed the face of the entire computer gaming industry. Even modern day blockbuster gaming franchises such as Metal Gear Solid and Grand Theft Auto can trace their origins back to this cute little pizza shaped trail blazer.
This clever PAC-MAN Heat Change Mug design shows the classic character in full flow, munching his way through the maze while avoiding his ghostly enemies. So get the kettle on and recharge your energy levels with a little help from a bona fide gaming legend.
RetroSix is a small team of people who have been in the gaming industry and retail business since 2013, and sold consoles, controllers and even designed our own controllers and consoles.
Putting that expertise to good use, we decided to start RetroSix; a small team of people passionate about retro gaming, and restoring original consoles to like-new, adding our own twist and style to them and in general bringing a modern twist to retro.
Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
So many things these days are mass produced, not designed to last, and make as cheap as possible for as much money as possible. We started RetroSix not as a mass market business, instead with the aim of perfection. Recreating moulds of original shells, casting them from quality ABS, redesigning hardware such as power supplies, USB-C, audio and more, to upgrade your consoles to the highest quality available. No cheap junk sold for profit.
All restoration work, modifications, improvements and so on are done in the UK, in-house by hand and all attention to detail and care is taken for every order. You can be assured that your order has been inspected not only by a real person but someone who knows about and is excited by gaming and retro, and no sub-par product leaves our doors.
In 2020 we partnered with Hand Held Legend in the USA, and Himitsu Kichi in Japan. I believe partnering with other likeminded companies is a great way to help each other out and ultimately make products that are better for the end consumer.
