A collection of 80’s arcade game marquees re-done as refrigerator magnets, by Blue Crab Magnets.

Last week, I discovered these refrigerator magnets based on old-school arcade game marquees1 on Amazon. It was such a great idea, and they looked cool, so I picked up some to check out the quality (ed. Plus he’s a sucker for anything retro and/or clever). 4.5 inches by 1.5 inches, they are fairly big and they are also on the heavy side. These are good, strong magnets. The printing is sharp and the colors are strong and bold, not washed out or cheap at all. The clear coat is shiny and appears well done. I just received these, it’s still hard to say how durable the magnets are, but they seem very well made.

I think these arcade game marquee magnets are great. At $6.50 each, with free shipping, they are a pretty good bargain as well. Blue Crab Magnets2, the reseller, also has a wide variety of other retro magnets, including movie posters, 80’s cereal boxes, postcards and more.

    I purchased several as on eBay there WAS a buy 4 get 1 free deal. I bought so many that their manager recinded the free magnet deals.

    These magnets rule. I got a bunch myself. The quality is excellent and size is perfect, not too big and not too small. The price is right too.
