Pop! Obsession: Funko Dials Up New ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Pops With Mini-Puft, Muncher, Paul Rudd, & More

    Who ya gonna call? If Funko has their way, you’ll be dialing up more than a dozen new Pop Vinyl figures for Ghostbusters: Afterlife! As soon as we saw them in the trailer, it became obvious the mini Stay Puft marshmallow dudes were going to be a big merch mover, but this is ridiculous! They are so cute it’ll be tough not to be one…dammit, okay, to buy them all!You

    There are multiple mini-Puft Pop! Vinyls to choose from here, and they’re all great. You’ve got one munching on a graham cracker, one pumping iron to get rid of those flabby arms, another dunking himself into hot chocolate in a bit of unexpected self harm, and another holding a slice of pizza bigger than he is! There are other mini-Pufts playing with fire, and because product placement is a thing, there’s a Wal-Mart exclusive with a set of headphones, and one for my favorite ice cream shop in the world, Baskin-Robbins! I’ve retired from Funko hunting (mostly) but as often as I’m there to get a scoop of Pralines and Creme, chances are I will come home with this mini-Puft, too.

    Although there’s no Slimer figure yet, for now you can get his blue counterpart, Muncher! There are two versions, one normal and a Glow-in-the-Dark version, both have him carrying some unknown piece of equipment in his gut. It’s probably something the Ghostbusters did not want him to eat.

    There are some actual people here, too, including some guy named Paul Rudd as Mr. Grooberson, holding a classic Ghostbusters trap. Good to see a Rudd Funko Pop that isn’t Ant-Man. There’s also Finn Wolfhard as Trevor, driving the Ecto-1, McKenna Grace rockin’ a proton pack as Phoebe, Celeste O’Connor as Lucky, and and Logan Kim as Podcast, carrying a remote trap controller.

    Some of these are exclusives and you can find them at their respective retail stores. Most of them are available right now to preorder from Entertainment Earth.  Any commission that we earn from purchases through our affiliate links goes back into the site.
