Underground Toys, who make the lions share of GB merch these days (mugs, glasses, cufflinks, keychains, and of course plush toys, etc.) have revealed their upcoming plush Slimer at New York’s Toy Fair. Like last year’s plush Stay-Puft, the Slimer comes in a medium (approx. 10″) size that plays “movie sounds” when you squeeze him (the Stay-Puft played the theme song) and a small, plush sized, non-singing dolls with a clip, suitable for your backpack, etc.
The big surprise, in most every sense, are the large sized dolls, both for Slimer and Stay-Puft. These look more like 15″ or bigger, but just like their tiny cousins, they feature “movie sounds.” Check the photos below to have a look and stay tuned!

Last minute gift shopping can be tricky but, this Ghostbuster shopping guide should be able to help you out.
Here is a small of list of items out there that you may add to the holiday shopping (or Santa) list.
The Real Ghostbusters animated series. One of the best animated series of the 1980s (if not all time) is now available and helps bring you back to your childhood. I guess it’s time to dust off those old Kenner toys.
Proton Pack, the backpack. Who knew a thrower could hold a cell phone and pens? This nifty item is $39.99 on Amazon and is hard to find in stores.
Slimer Sours. Why not add some retro looking candy to that stalking?
Ghostbusters Slime Pants: Open presents in style.
No Ghost Pint Glass. Don’t you wish you could drink ecto-cooler in this?
Trap with logo skinny tie. Be dressy and nerdy at the same time.
“3D” Stay Puft belt buckle (in-store only).
Stay Puft pillow buddy (in-store only).
Gift the movies for electronic download right on their iPad, iPhone or computer.
Diamond Select Toys & Collectibles
Stay Puft Bank. Pretty much the coolest bank I’ve ever seen.
Minimates. LEGO, watch your back.
Toys R Us
Movie poster. Add some slime to that empty wall. You can even have it shipped framed.
Baby blue logo shirt. Just like the one people wave at the end of the first film.
Inflatable Stay Puft lawn decoration. Because it’s just damn cool.
You can’t go wrong with anything made by MattyCollector. From realistic action figures to movie replica PKE Meters and traps, Matty makes some really good stuff. Check out their store for many cool toys.
To be fair, there are a lot more items out there. These just happen to be some of my favorites. Feel free to share yours in the comments section below.
[UPDATE: Ghost Trap Sold Out, thanks Sam for the heads up!]
If you haven’t gotten a Ghost Trap from MattyCollector or are eager to get more, definitely swing by their page today to pick one (or up to 99) up! A lot cheaper than buying one on eBay, that’s for sure!
Other figures are on sale as well, including the Mr. Stay-Puft figure.
Missed out on attending San Diego Comic-Con? Well, don’t fret – you missed out on the first crack at the squishie Stay-Puft doll and its diorama case, BUT this Monday, August 1st, you’ll have a second crack at what stock remains after SDCC. All you need is to buy early and have $70.
Thanks to Brandon for the heads up!
