In case you missed it, Sony released a clip from its upcoming film Ghostbusters: Afterlife yesterday, revealing an adorable bunch of characters called the Mini-Pufts. They are basically tiny versions of the iconic Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man from the Ghostbusters franchise, and in they are (adorably) terrorizing a Walmart in the new clip. Certainly, we weren’t alone in thinking, “These have to be toys, right?”
And Hasbro answered the call very quickly, already revealing an upcoming line of 1.5-inch collectibles called Ghostbusters Mini-Puft Surprise, inspired by these new characters.
There will be six styles in each wave of these blind-bag collectibles, which are even tinier than the characters in the movie. Each one is modeled after a different Mini-Puft from Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Some of the designs include a Mini-Puft on fire, a Mini-Puft melting, a Mini-Puft eating chocolate, and a Mini-Puft taking off, strapped to a rocket.
While the figures themselves are fun, the packaging is the true highlight for this line. Each Mini-Puft Surprise comes in a Stay-Puft Marshmallow can that is filled with a goopy, marshmallow-like compound. Collectors will need to dig through the compound to discover which Mini-Puft figure is inside.
The first waves of these collectibles are set to debut this fall at major retailers for about $5.39 each, and fans can expect additional waves, too!
