If you are a fan of the original Ghostbuster movie and the franchise as a whole, then surely you know about Stay Puft, the giant marshmallow man from the first movie. Thanks to Mattel, you can have a shrunken down version of Mr. Stay Puft in the form of the Ghostbusters Stay Puft Marshmallow Man action figure. It’s the perfect collectible for any pop culture geek.
In case you’re not familiar with the character or it’s been too long since you saw the movie, allow me to refresh your memory. In the first Ghostbuster movie which came out in 1984, Mr. Stay Puft, or Tubby Soft Squeeze as he was nicknamed by Ray Stantz and Peter Venkman, was the mascot of the Stay Puft Marshmallow brand. Over the course of the movie, you catch glimpses of his image on background props or in the environments where the main characters interact and is not seen as important until just before the climax of the story, when Gozer, an ancient and malignant entity from another dimension is summoned to New York city and while battling with the Ghostbusters, asks them to choose the form of their destructor.
While the other members of the Ghostbusters team are able to clear their minds, Ray chooses that moment to think about Mr. Stay Puft and before you know it, Gozer has taken the form of a giant Tubby Soft Squeeze at over 100 feet, casually strolling through the city and destroying everything in sight. The Ghostbusters eventually come up with a plan to destroy this form of Gozer and banish him from their dimension but that doesn’t stop Mr Stay Puft from showing up several times in other parts of the Ghostbusters franchise media like the animated series, comic books and video games.
This action figure is a perfect replica of Mr. Stay Puft, complete with the sailor outfit. Measuring in at 6 inches tall, it also includes movable arms and legs. It also lights up with a spooky red glow and comes included with 3 LR44 batteries. Safe for children from four years and above. Combine with other Ghostbuster action figures to recreate your favorite scenes from the movies and cartoons.
