GBFans has an early look at Mattel’s San Diego Comic Con Stay-Puft figure and diorama. I know we’ve had a look before, but the shots are GBFans aren’t just better quality, they cover way more detail on the figure, as well as it’s kick ass box (which like all Mattel/Hotwheels boxes is printed to look like some sort of real case, not just a mere cardboard container.)
To be sure, the Statue of Liberty lamp was one of the oddest Ghostbusters items to appear at the New York Toy Fair, along with the less nonsensical Mr. Stay-Puft lamp. Time hasn’t change the plan any – Art Asylum has posted pictures of the Stay-Puft lamp (and his box), along with a larger look at the State of Liberty – the statue still doesn’t give much away about what lights up, nor does it look like there’s anything particularly Ghostbuster-y about it that can be seen. It’s kind of like buying a North by NorthWest statue of Mount Rushmore, only nobody is hanging from it… it’s just a miniature of Mount Rushmore. Or am I thinking of Vertigo? In any case… buh?
100 feet of angry marshmallow mascot can really ruin your day. Luckily we at DST have shrunk the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man down to a much more manageable size — 7 inches! Not only that, our mini-statue version lights up, to add a pleasing glow to your collection at night. Isn’t that much nicer than stepping on churches? Check out out new in-package pictures below, plus a pic of the upcoming Statue of Liberty light-up statue! Look for Mr. Stay-Puft in July and Miss Liberty in October!
This costume, which will be available for sale August 31st (some list it as September 14th), comes in a Men’s and a Boy’s size (suggested retail price of $49.99 and $29.99 respectively), but let’s be honest, those are fine as Women’s and Girl’s sizes too. The head mask isn’t the best, but the inflatable body suit (it actually uses a small battery operated fan, similar to the lawn decoration) is an ambitious idea.
Big thanks to Matt Rude for the heads up on this Morbid Enterprises listing at Big Bad Toy Store – an eight and a half foot tall inflatable Stay Puft. Screw the inflatable pumpkin or witch on the lawn – we all need this. Well, I need this.
Currently BBTS.com is taking pre-orders at $99.99 (hmmm. Now I know why people always get the pumpkin), and while no due date is apparent, they have it listed for a Q3 release, which would put it at September, at the latest – right on time for Halloween!
I was flying through the air when this was revealed on G4’s Attack of the Show last week, but it doesn’t make it any less exciting – if you’re attending the San Diego Comic Con this year, and have $70 to spend, you’ll be able to buy a giant, slightly squishy Mr. Stay-Puft, complete in a New York diorama box! Here’s the official write up from MattyCollector.com;
Here it is… your sneak peek at just a few of our upcoming SDCC toys! Remember to check back often because I’ll reveal even more as the event gets closer.
Ghostbusters™ Stay Puft Marshmallow Man ($70)
Stay Puft is the largest item ever made by Mattel and sold at SDCC, standing at over 20″ tall! Our favorite squishy villain is made from soft foam and features articulation at the arms, head and legs. A huge city diorama is included in the packaging – perfect for displaying your entire Ghostbusters collection! He’ll be available first at SDCC, then here on MattyCollector.com.
