Coleco Galaxian (1981, VFD, 4 C Batteries, Model# 2380)
View Manual

One of the cool, arcade game shaped handhelds (or tabletops, they aren't easy to hold...), based on Bally/Midway's Galaxian arcade game. These are much-desired collectibles, and aren't always easy to find in really good condition. They each (Frogger, Donkey Kong, Galaxian, Pac Man, Ms Pac Man) have a sticker on the top of the game, front, left side and right side, as well as a plastic sticker on the control panel. One or more of these is frequently damaged or missing. There is also an instruction sticker on the bottom of each of them. They should also have an egg-shaped knob on the end of each joystick (this was only held on with a screw, and was also subject to disappearing.) Check out the Guts section to see the inside of this game!

Post cereal was also giving away 5,000 Coleco mini arcades in 1984:

Galaxian was also used as a prop in the 2003 movie Bookies:
