Ghostbusters and Domo Cross Streams in New Vinyl and Plush Mash-Ups

Domo with Stay Puft and Slimer

We may never see Ghostbusters 3, but that doesn’t stop the franchise from having an extended after-life via licensing. The latest? A mash-up of the Ghostbuster mascots, Slimer and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, with Japan’s Domo.

Somehow Mr. Stay Puft with Domo’s teeth is even more terrifyingly cute than the original!

Time to Form the Human Resistance – PH-42 Heralds the Rise of the Machines

I received a strange message the other day, from a robot named PH-42. Apparently, the machines have become sentient, and they are coming to destroy us. But we’re getting an out – if we help to build their robot army by purchasing one or more of their vinyl counterparts, we will be spared their upcoming onslaught.

Well, I’ve got news for you, PH-42 – we don’t negotiate with terrorists, not even robot terrorists from another planet. See, I’ve got a plan. I will purchase one or more of you, re-program you, and then send you back in time to protect my younger self. But only after I send my best friend back in time to impregnate my mother with me.

Toynami Celebrates Online Shop Opening and Cyber Monday with Free Shipping Deal

SDCC 2013 EXCLUSIVE BADTZ MARU RYU PLUSH COMIKAZE 2013 EXCLUSIVE HELLO KITTY BLANKA PLUSH SDCC 2013 EXCLUSIVE FUTURAMA DESTRUCTOR GENDER BENDER BOX SET SDCC 2013 EXCLUSIVE FUTURAMA HYPNOTOAD VINYL FIGURE

Toynami recently opened the Toynami Shop, their online store. And low and behold, it’s stocked with exclusives from San Diego Comic Con and Comikaze. I can tell you, if I’d known these items would be available online way after the shows were over, it would have saved my wife some stress. She is nuts over the Sanrio / Street Fighter plush mashups, and braved the insane lines at SDCC for the Badtz Ryu exclusive. Then when we figured out we couldn’t make it to Comikaze, we had to figure out a way to get our hands on the Hello Kitty Blanka. I also heard that a lot of Futurama fans were unable to get the hook-up at SDCC for the Gender Bender set.

So, if you missed out, get them now! Need your arm twisted? For Cyber Monday, Toynami is offering free shipping on all orders until December 6.
