Galaga Fighter GFX-D002b model, due in March from Wave, and in my house immediately after. The model (which comes unpainted) is available for preorder at importers including Amiami and HLJ for ¥2,800ish ($35).
This isn’t exactly how I imagined the Galaga ship would look in detailed 3D, but it will be! Unfortunately, this cool model reminds me that I never picked up the Kotobukiya Ikaruga kit (sigh).

Silpheed AS-77 model kit by Plum. If you’d like to see more images of the beautiful model Matt posted from Wonder Festival, Akiba Hobby has a whole gallery of lovely pictures of the ship in various states of assembly (how scandalous!)
The unpainted model kit ships in mid-May from Amiami (¥3,810, about $41) or your favorite toy importer. I don’t know who’s playing this much Silpheed to decide to build a model of the ship, but I’m glad whoever that is exists.
Ghosts ‘n Goblins model kit by Bandai, circa 1986. I spotted this item in the same eBay shop as the magical Super Mario World music box Eric posted, and, well, I kind of wish I hadn’t, because this thing is going to haunt me for the rest of my life.
There is no damn way I can afford to pay $100 for a model kit featuring a squat Arthur watching over tiny versions of Ghosts ‘n Goblins's enemies, but man, do I want to. I'd totally set it up just like the box demonstrates, with blurry photographed screenshots of the game as a backdrop, and shoot javelin tips at the monsters.
