I don't know how many people remember the Ape Escape series - mainly from the PS1 era, but it certainly hasn't been forgotten in Japan's game centers, as evidenced by this prize from Taito. Amazingly enough, I got this for only $8 at Videogamefigures.com . This is incredibly cute & kinda sophisticated for a game center prize, but I'd expect no less from Japan at this point, lol. I was a tad disappointed that he doesn't run in circles like in the games before you startle them, though. Check the video to see him running around my kitchen!
