#GhostbustersWeek continues with a pair of figures you won’t want to roast or fry…
For the past few years, PPW Toys has been expanding their line of PopTaters by mashing-up pop culture licenses like STAR WARS and MARVEL Comics with unique Mr. Potato Head figures created under license from Hasbro. This summer, the GHOSTBUSTERS are in on the PopTater action, and the first pair has hit the streets under the GHOSTBUSTERS Classics banner, with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man facing off against a lone Ghostbuster, but one that it’s a safe bet to say was modeled largely after Dan Aykroyd’s Ray Stantz (ECTO goggles!). After all, it was Ray who chose to summon Gozer in the form of Mr. Stay Puft – “something that could never possibly destroy us.” Each are available now from my allies at Entertainment Earth, or direct from the PPW Toys website. Check them out in-action here at Rock Father HQ!
Look at that Mr. Potato Head Ghostbuster… valiantly charging into battle with an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back (the Proton Pack) – along with his trusty Wand, Classic Jumpsuit and ECTO Googles.
Mr. Potato Head Stay Puft Marshmallow Man just looks so jovial! He could never destroy plastic New York City, right?
If you play like The Rock Daughters, eventually everyone just teams-up and becomes friends. There are no losers in this battle.
The Hot Wheels Ecto-1 is a great companion piece for play (or display) as well!
GHOSTBUSTERS: ANSWER THE CALL (2016) Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters.
