UK maker of licensed merchandise, Underground Toys, has revealed their pair of “singing” Mr. Stay-Puft dolls, one angry and one happy. The singing is a sound chip in the figure’s tummy that plays the Ghostbusters theme when pressed.
Stores such as Entertainment Earth and Big Bad Toy Store are taking pre-orders on the dolls now, for $19.99 – $21.99. The dolls are listed as being available May 2011. Specialty shops will likely be offering them for pre-order soon – check with your local comic shop.
Beyond these figures, Underground Toys has not made any concrete announcements, but presumably if they Stay-Puft figure is a success, more, like a Slimer, will follow.
In December UT did reveal that they had extended their deal with Sony, giving them the rights to produce singing figures (check), mugs, keychains (UT makes both soundboard keychains and rubber figure keychains), stress balls (squishy stress relieving Slimer, anyone?), and cufflinks. Stay tuned!
