The folks over at New Wave Toys have a new product in the works for their RepliTronics line of premium collectible miniatures in the form factor of an 80’s era BoomBox. They have created a 40% scale version of the JVC RC-M90, which has been dubbed by many as the “King of Boomboxes.” So RepliTronics as chosen it as the basis of their latest miniature. The M90 Mini is a replica of the JVC RC-M90 but it is also a fully functioning bluetooth speaker. The M90 Mini measures 5.25 inches tall and 9.75 inches wide and has the following features:
- Highly-detailed, durable construction using a blend of traditional materials: aluminum, stainless steel, high-density rubber, and high-grade plastics
- Dual 2.5″ stereo speakers delivering 16-watts of crisp, undistorted sound
- Adjustable Treble, Bass, and Balance tuning knobs
- Bluetooth 5.1 wireless technology for maximum range and performance
- Multiple audio source options including USB, 3.5mm aux input, and even AM/FM radio
- Massive 10,000 mAh battery with over 60 hours of battery life, capable of also charging external devices using
- USB-A port
- USB-C charge cable included
- MSRP: $100
They also have a smaller version called the M90 Micro, which is a 1/6 scale version of the VC RC-M90 that is scaled so that it can sit next to other RepliTronics miniatures like the Tempest X or the Street Fighter II CE and scales properly next to them (because everyone needs a boombox next to their retro arcade system).
