Marusan game. I love this Goji and Marusan had this game where you thow these little bean bags at the toys and if you knock them over, you win them! So on my 2nd throw, I actually knocked down the Goji and was pretty stoked. Then the dude explained that you win a blind bag toy. It ended up being a flying Gamera which was not nearly as cool as this clear green Goji.
