Pac-man takes time off eating ghosts and makes himself useful.

Pac-man that eighties game icon has always been busy eating ghosts and more recently Adam Sandler, but turning 36 this year he has had a change of heart and decided to give back to human kind… Instead of pouring our hard earned coins into a pac-man arcade, pac-man and his creator Namco have teamed up with traditional leather craft company Inden-ya and US bag maker Outdoor to create some interesting products you can spend your money on instead.

Most reader know Outdoor, the producer of bags and other rugged travel gear and they have collaborated with Namco/Bandai or other anime/manga companies before like these JoJo’s bizarre adventure backpacks.

Or these Tiger&Bunny bags.

This time Outdoor and Namco created these lovely bags:

A little more upscale are the the wallets and pouches created by Inden-ya a company with a 434-year(!?) history in making fine craft arts. Made out of deerskin leather to which decorative lacquer is added these wallets are made to last and impress!

For the true Pac-Man fans the real “must have” of this birthday celebration of our yellow hero was this  limited gold plate.  This commemorative plate was
an official collaboration with Japanese jeweler GINZA TANAKA and is one of a kind creation. Unfortunately this was released last year to celebrate his 35th birthday and is no longer available…but we can dream can we?
