Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 17

Well that's out of order, isn't it? Getting George's mogwai form four days after getting him as a gremlin? And three days after little Lenny? His dark fur makes him look a lot like Mohawk, so it's a good thing he's missing that trademark hairdo. Fur-do? Also, why does a mogwai with dark grey fur grow up to be a green gremlin? Mogwai George is frowning at us, as he should.

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 16

Oh, okay: the reason George was green was because Lenny was going to be brown. (He still could have been the dark green, though.) Lenny's still no larger than usual, but the new head really sells who it is and who it's meant to be. His ears droop down, his eyes look vacant, and his big square overbite pokes out the front of his mouth. Like his leader, he has black lines painted on his arms.

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 15

Wait, they do have brown plastic! So why was George green? This is the same gremlin body we saw from the first movie, just done in a nice tan. And they painted some black spots in his ears. Plus the eyes are yellow, rather than red. It may still be a cannon-fodder beast, but it looks different and spices up the display.

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 14

Aw, look, it's Lenny! Little Lenny, when he was still a mogwai. The dopey look on his face is perfectly sculpted, and the paint apps are surprisingly complex for something this small - brown and white body, pink skin, black and white markings on the brown head. They didn't do anything to make him any taller than the other mogwais, but at this point that's not a problem. The brown should perhaps be a little darker, but would you really notice that without being told?

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 13

Today we get a Gremlins 2 adult, George. You can even recognize his Edward G. Robinson face despite the small, small size (and lack of a cigar). The body is the same one as the other Gremlins, but he gets a few black paint apps on his arms to break up all the light green. That's not at all the color he was in the movie, but maybe they don't have any brownish-green plastic.

Another bag of goop, and another Gremlin seed. Not loving it.

Transformers BotBots Poo Sham review

The Transformers BotBots were originally divided into eight teams, based on what store in the mall they hail from. For instance, in the first wing of the mall, there were two bathroom supply stores, both bringing us the members of the Toilet Troop; today's bot is just laying on the ground on Level 1.
