Combining Japan’s apparently resurgent enthusiasm for electronic novelty banks and our own ongoing love affair with All Things Invader during Taito’s seemingly bottomless and endless treasure trove of 30th Anniversary tie-ins, CScout’s Japan Trend blog brings news of Takara Tomy’s just released Space Invaders cocktail cab bank.

While it doesn’t actually play so much as count your 100 yen coins with a new on-screen invader each time, its attention to detail, with the itty-bittiest instructions panel and color overlay (making it Space Invaders Part II, for the pedants), still manages to get a lustful rise.
