The late Archer Maclean was beloved by gamers for his amazing creations across many platforms. Dropzone, IK+, Jimmy White's Snooker and more are all heralded as classics. Archer was also a keen arcade collector and restorer and I was lucky enough to meet him at expos to discuss our shared passion. Archer sadly passed away in December 2022 at the age of 60.

Today, with the help of Chris Wilkins, we're collecting some items from his arcade workshop which we'll use to restore some of his arcade cabinets which Chris will use at his own expos and also kindly allow us to share at the Arcade Archive museum. There are some incredible things to collect today, let's take a look.
