Funko has debuted its latest Hikari mold, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (Ghostbusters), with a “Burnt” deco reminiscent of the character’s fate in the first film… and many of the video games.
The mold itself is a mix of cute and creepy. I love the body work, but that face really weird me out. Maybe if the eyes weren’t looking down I wouldn’t be tempted to turn the thing around so it’s not looking at me but, I suppose, the original character was intended to creepy so it fits the general vibe.
The choice of deco is somewhat intuitive since it gives Funko some flexibility while achieving an iconic look. The glossy metallic blue used for the bib (?) and part of the hat also looks great.
Funko’s “Burnt” Stay Puft Hikari can be pre-ordered for US$80 and is slated for a November release. As always, you can also win one by entering Funko’s Facebook contest.
