SH Figuarts Stay Puft Marshmallow Man 1/12 (Ghostbusters)

Ghostbusters are obviously a "hot" property this year, and we are getting an avalanche of new figures this year from various sources including Diamond, Mattel, Mezco and newcomer Blitzway (who are doing both 6" and 12" scales).

Also entering the fray, although to what extent as yet we don't know, is SH Figuarts who unveiled Marshmallow Man at San Diego. The figure is, we assume, around the standard 6" in height and therefore more a fit with their MonsterArt figures like Godzilla.

Stay Puft will come in at 180mm / 7 inches high and will include alternative hands, and three head options (smiling, angry and in pain). He will hit stores in January 2017 costing 7,344 Yen - this converts to £55 or $72, and expect to add at least another £10/$10 on top once this has been through import.

I guess the big speculation at this stage is whether this is a one off from SHF or if they intend to expand the licence to the Ghostbusters themselves (new or old)? SHF are no strangers to one off figures, and Stay Puft does have a cult enough following to have collector appeal. It would, however, be cool to see what SHF could do with a set of 1/12 Ghostbusters
