Ms. Pac-Man was released nearly three decades ago but she is still a video game icon. At the turn of the millennium Ms. Pac-Man became a spokeswoman for breast cancer awareness. Now she can be seen wearing a pink ribbon along with the classic bow.
As part of the 2011 October Turn Tulsa Pink week, Arcade Sales and Rentals donated a restored custom-edition Ms. Pac-Man for Turn Tulsa Pink to help raise awareness for ALL women and children who have been affected by any form of cancer.
The original 1981 Ms. Pac-Man cabinet was stripped down to the bare wood and given a fresh coat of paint, special pink T-molding and a never-before seen pink joystick from our friends at 2084 Arcade in Tulsa.
Add to this an original factory G07 monitor chassis, an original glass bezel and really nice original marquee sourced from our parts inventory and a new control panel overlay, just like that we have one pretty machine ready to raise some funds for this great organization.
Thanks to the help of some friends, the game was completed in under a week. Action Signs of Norman supplied the Turn Tulsa Pink decals to finish it off.
