If you were around Slimer as much as quite a few of us are every single day, you’d understand why we would question why anyone would want a life size Class V, free roaming vapor. However, with that said we can see the appeal of a Slimer replica that won’t smell, leave ectoplasmic residue behind, and won’t increase your grocery budget.
At last month’s Toy Fair New York, (or NYTF) N.E.C.A publicly returned to the Ghostbusters license by showing off 1:1 (or life size, best as realism allows) Slimer and Stay-Puft foam replicas. (GBI Blog Post, February 14, 2016)

Australian wholesaler Ikon Collectibles (US spelling folks 😉 has a few product pages for Stay-Puft and Slimer statues. They appear to be manufactured by them. As we were saying yesterday with the Slimer Lamp (Ghostbusters International Blog Post, February 11, 2016) these may be products only sold in another hemisphere. We’re not sure yet.
After smashing his way through a substantial portion of New York City, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is ready to join your collection!
First appearing as a 112-foot monster hell-bent on destroying the Ghostbusters, Marshmallow Man has become a beloved staple of the Ghostbusters franchise. His appearance in the film created a lasting impression on the Ghostbusters fandom, and has solidified his place as a timeless nostalgic icon.
This 46cm statue has been meticulously crafted from sturdy polyresin and features Stay Puft Marshmallow Man stomping his way over a police car on the streets of New York.
Stay-Puft statue includes a second “angry face” head to recreate part of Ghostbusters climax. If an angry face isn’t enough, their’s also a roasted marshmallow variant.
Both will be available on June 30, 2016. Continue reading “Ikon Collectibles Ghost Statues”

From Sunday, January 24-Tuesday, January 26, 2016 the British Toy & Hobby Association brought fans and licensees The Toy Fair aka UK Toy Fair.
Some photos with accompanying words showed the first photos of upcoming Ghostbusters merchandise. Even if its only for Ghostbusters 2016, ghostheads haven’t seen this level of merchandise to directly tie into the Ghostbusters franchise since The Real Ghostbusters. That’s how it feels!
Its possible North American licenses will bring us similar or the same products. As far as we know these products are for the European market. Safe assumption we’ll know and see Ghostbusters products for the colonies and Canada at Toy Fair New York. Continue reading “UK Toy Fair: Ghostbusters 2016”
