Metal Die-cast company Jada Toys Inc. has created a line of Ghostbusters figures made from a metal die-cast.

I know you’re asking yourself, what no Stay-Puft? “We won’t pay.” Thanks to ghosthead Jason Bischoff we know Jada knows their target audience.

Each of the individual 4″ Ghostbusters figures will retail for around $20 USD. With the slimed Peter and Slimer 2-pack retailing for around $40 USD. Estimated to arrive during June 2016.

GhostbustersMania added 17 product photos to their 4″ Ghostbusters Jada album.

New Ghostbusters Pop Tees

Funko recently announced wave 2 of their Pop! Tees. Among the likes of some jokerish space civil war t-shirts is the above Ghostbusters Pop! t-shirt. We know Pop! Movies Winston Zeddemore (iRich Blog Post, December 28, 2014) is smaller in scale, that isn’t a reason to exclude him.

You may remember Funko originally released (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, July 11, 2015) a Ghostbusters Pop! Tee as a SDCC 2015 exclusive. Which was later sold at retailers and on-line.

Each of Funko’s Pop! Tees come with a Pop! Mini Standee collector card. They’ll be available during Summer 2016.

Ghostbusters Daruma Club Stay Puft Figure

When there’s something immediately happening in Japan with Ghostbusters, all I need to do is see a tweet/or re-tweet from Ghostbusters Japan. (Twitter) This is where I recently learned a new Ghostbusters collectible is coming out and it seems so Japanese. I say that with the highest of compliments.

As on-line software translation isn’t perfect I didn’t quite get the idea of these Daruma toys. I chalked it up as another type of vinyl figure without knowing anything about Daruma.

If like me you’re not very familiar with Daruma, let’s consult Google.

The Daruma doll (達磨 daruma ?), also known as a Dharma doll, is a hollow, round, Japanese traditional doll modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen sect of Buddhism.

When I originally saw not only a Mr. Stay-Puft Daruma doll I didn’t think of that. Considering my western up bringing and Christian faith it makes sense Buddhism didn’t occur to me. However sumo wrestling did. Something else I don’t really understand, also respect. Continue reading

Back at February’s New York Toy Fair Ghostbusters licensee PPW Toys had their upcoming Ghostbusters Mr. Potato Heads and nesting dolls on display. (GBI Blog Post, February 14, 2016) Not that surprising I wasn’t familiar enough with PPW Toys. Checking out their site gave me a better idea of their partnerships and pricing.

Today PPW Toys has given us a better look at their Ghostbusters products. Let’s take a closer look!

Stay-Puft Marshmallows Around A Summer Campfire

The second US version of Ghostbusters Stay-Puft marshmallows.

You may remember in October I wrote a few posts about Ghostbusters confectionaries. (Ecto-Containment Tag) That is if you live in either the UK or a country where they can be shipped to. Since I imagine the cost of shipping candy which will either melt or expire could be very costly for an international company, in North America we either wrote about them or dealt with our emotions. Or both. 😀

One of those confectionaries, Stay-Puft Marshmallows. (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 13, 2015) Continue reading
