Arguably the best non-core character of the entire Real Ghostbusters toy line was this toy, the not-even-close-to-scale Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.
While he does tower over the Ghostbusters meant to hunt him down, he's nowhere near the city-crushing heights seen in the original movie. Still, he's a nicely sculpted toy with good textures making him appear very much like a big man made of the fluffy candy. Unlike the bulk of the villains from the Ghostbusters range, this one actually appeared in the film as well as the television show.
The figure is mostly a statue, only posable at the neck and shoulders. As such, he's a great representation of the character and the only real way to improve him would be in either size or some action involving walking and/or exploding. It's a quality piece, well worth tracking down. There was also a Japanese vinyl kit of the character from Tsukuda, a pencil sharpener from McDonald's, a plush Kenner toy, and a few other odds and ends produced as well.
The figure was originally sold on a blister card like most action figures, but as this has been part of the 16bit.com Staff Collection since before personal computers had a full megabyte of RAM, it has long since been discarded.
