Collectible 'Ghostbusters' Stay Puft Vinyl Smells Like Marshmallows

"I couldn't help it. It just popped in there." There's already been a collectible glow-in-the-dark vinyl record released commemorating the 30th anniversary of the classic comedy Ghostbusters for the film's 30th anniversary, but we're not done with the vinyl fun yet. The official Ghostbusters online store (via The Verge) is currently selling The Stay Puft Super Deluxe Edition Vinyl, a limited edition collectible package crafted in the same vein as the marshmallow villain Gozer calls upon to destroy New York City. The vinyl includes the hit single “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker Jr. and the “Ghostbusters” rap by Run-DMC from Ghostbusters II, supposedly a fan-favorite. But there's other goodies in the package as well. Look below!
Here's a list of what's included in this awesome package:
12” White vinyl single – both tracks are on Side A. Side B is smooth
Two 12 x 12 Stay Puft 3D lenticular images from the film
One 12 x 12 Stay Puft 3D motion lenticular image from the film
Puffy gatefold jacket which simulates the feel and texture of a marshmallow
Marshmallow scented jacket
Inner gatefold includes full photo collage of Mr. Stay Puft’s iconic march through New York City.
Numbered Certificate of Authenticity
There are only 3,000 copies of this special vinyl package available and it will cost you about $60. At the time of this writing, I was able to purchase a copy about an hour ago, so you might still have a chance to pick one up. Also, not listed in the specs above is a couple bonuses: a 6-inch Stay Puft figurine and one complete set of Stay Puft Marshmallow Man facial expressions with three individual emotions separated onto layers of unbound transparencies. We're not sure what to do with that latter bonus though. The Traveler has come!
Gah. Awesome for collectors, but $30/song? Stiff.

As a smell-lover, I want this. As a GHOSTBUSTERS fan, I need this.

Liked the 'supposedly' jab at the DMC song. I love GB2 but I hate that song.

Awesome if it was a dvd/blu ray cover. but vinyl record? Nope, never be able to play it so it's a $60 paperweight. Good luck to anyone with pets/toddlers as they will probably eat the damn thing. (I would've)
