Funko doesn’t get Puft, it stays Puft!

Funko has unveiled two new Premium Hikari Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (Ghostbusters) vinyl figures (previously available in a crispy flavor).

The first is a fairly standard version (which I swear I’ve seen before?) and is limited to 1,500 pieces. The second is dubbed “Pink Glitter” Stay Puft and features a translucent pink plastic with glitter in it (so exactly how it sounds). “Pink Glitter” is an Entertainment Earth exclusive which will be limited to 1,000 pieces.

Both versions are currently available for pre-order for US$80 apiece (and, if you buy through EE, you’ll qualify for their free shipping).

Crispy! Funko premieres its "Burnt" Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Hikari

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.

Need more incentive to buy DST’s 24-in Stay Puft MM? How about the chance to win prizes?

Diamond Select Toys’ 24-inch tall Stay Puft Marshmallow Man vinyl bank recently started to ship and, to celebrate, DST will be hosting a series of monthly contests where all fans need to do to win is take a photo of their 24-inch Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (either the good or evil version) somewhere outside and then email that photo to collectdst@gmail.com. Easy, right?

Winners will score prize packages which consist of $100 worth of toys and collectibles from DST. Considering that Stay Puft himself retails for US$125, the figure could almost pay for itself.

The rules are stated as follows: “Photos must be at least 600 x 800 pixels. One entry per person per monthly cycle. Duplicate entries will not be included in the drawing. If you do not win, a new photo can be submitted after the start of the new month. A previously submitted picture cannot be submitted again. All entries become the property of Diamond Select Toys, and can be used on various Websites and social media sites. Prize package value is based on suggested retail price of all items combined. Winners are prohibited from entering any DST contest again for one year.”

There’s currently no word as to when this contest will end. It’s certainly one way to promote a very cool, very high-ticket collectible.

DST’s really big Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Vinyl Bank and Godzilla Vinyl Bank on sale this week

See how tiny a banana looks in DST’s over-sized Stay Puft Marshmallow Man‘s hand! The 24-inch vinyl bank begins shipping this week alongside the slightly smaller 12-inch Godzilla vinyl bank.

The Stay Puft vinyl bank (vinyl? C’mon, it’s clearly made of AWESOME!) dwarfs DST’s previously released 12-inch Stay Puft Marshmallow Vinyl Bank and, at 24-inches, will likely tower over everything else you own. EVERYTHING!

While listed as a mere vinyl bank, the new Stay Puft is large enough to be a vault and should be big enough to handle years of accumulated loose change. Unfortunately we don’t have an image of him next to the 12-inch Godzilla Vinyl Bank (which purportedly is 18-inches if you count from the head to the tip of his tail), but hopefully Diamond Select Toys will come through with that awesome comparison shot.
