It even has mocked-up boxes! Turns out it's part of month-long series of comical 2600 posts in honor of Nolan Bushnell's 60th birthday, 15 years ago: http://www.vgg.com/2600/

That is pretty hilarious. And, if you're not into action figures, there's always these for the working businessman. I like the Asteroids one, if you don't look too closely, it actually looks stylish and professional.

As a bonus, if you do the Magic Eye stare at the background, it feels like you could actually touch Q*Bert's nose. You know, if you're into that sort of thing. Yar know what I'm talkin' about.

Why would anyone ruin one of those ties by wearing it with a suit? :D

 

(Though, actually, that Asteroids tie is subtle enough that it could probably be worn "seriously")
