Art Asylum release box pics of Stay-Puft lamp, closer pic of Liberty lamp.

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!

Way back in January, Art Asylum showed off pics of one of two new Stay-Puft banks. The one pictured was a normal looking Stay-Puft that glowed blue in the dark. The second was a secret. Well, secret no more; Art Asylum has posted pics of an angry red, glow-in-the-dark Stay-Puft! And the fit to burst Stay-Puft – they’re calling him “Exploding Stay Puft” is now sale now as a Toys R Us exclusive ($19.99USD – free shipping in the US)!

Big ups to John DiBiase for the TRU link!

Diamond reveals RGB Minimates most likely out in 2011

BigShinyRobot.com has a video of their time at San Diego Comic Con 2010, including their review of the Retro-Action Peter Venkman, but most interesting is the Diamond Select Toys Presents: Minimates! panel, which was held on Saturday, July 24th. When asked what was next for the Ghostbusters line, the Diamond rep (can’t make out the name and the web is being no help) was at first hesitant, but responded that they would most likely be doing Real Ghostbusters Minimates in 2011.

So very awesome. The clip comes in the final couple of minutes of the short clip (4:45);
