Recently, Ive come to give more attention to an old childhood enjoyment of mine-Ghostbusters. A recent purchase of mine is the 11" Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Bank.
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is a fictional mascot for the Stay Puft Marshmallow Corporation, a fictional company from the Ghostbusters universe. It first appears as a picture logo on a prop package of marshmallows in the 1984 movie "Ghostbusters". At the climax of the movie, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man appears as a giant, obese figure made solely of marshmallows and standing over 100ft tall. Along with the Ghostbusters logo, the image of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man has become one of the most recognizable emblems of the franchise.
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man bank is a wonderful item. Perfect for any Ghostbusters fans' collection, it can be displayed as a figure or used for its intended purpose to hold loose change. Luckily, the character's image itself is not very complex therefor it wasnt hard for the bank to mimic it. Basically the bank is good enough to be used as a high-end collectible. The bank is made of a vinyl, a soft feeling organic compound that gives the bank an almost matte looing finish. My only gripe is that the quality control in the painting is a bit off in a few spots but for US$20.00 you cant complain. Overall I would say that this is an awesome and very unique piece that no Ghostbusters fan/collector can go with out!
