MattyCollector.com Offers Refunds for 2011 Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Figure

In Exclusives by Jeremy RutzLeave a Comment

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on the 2011 SDCC-exclusive Ghostbusters Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Figure, you might want to recount your blessings. They just might have yellowed over time.

Kidding aside, it appears some figures have started to yellow in the months following last year’s SDCC, which MattyCollector.com says is “due to an unforeseen chemical reaction between the paint and material used in its construction”.

Because the run was limited, they won’t be able to offer an exchange program, but they are offering full refunds of the product including shipping costs for those who purchased online or at SDCC, as well as arranging pickup and covering return costs. Good on them!

The full refund process has been posted on the MattyCollector.com website and quoted below:

If you would like a refund, here’s what to do:
