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.

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 11

Mohawk, lookin' small and evil! This may be the same body as all the other mogwais, but having black fur makes him look totally different. Despite being an angry little fuzzhead with a stripe of vertical fur over his head, this isn't the same head mold as Stripe - smaller, more sinister eyes, sharper teeth, etc. Adorably malicious!

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 10

As our days get into double-digits, we get into double-movies: Gremlins 2 in the house! The flap for Day 10 is larger than usual, and features Daffy on the front - and then inside is Daffy's mogwai form. You can tell it's him because the fur is light enough brown to look orange, and the eyes are rolling all over the place. Guess that explains yesterday's baby-sphere: it's the start of a new movie!

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 9

We've come into the re-use portion of our month, clearly, because today is another baby mogwai lump. Doesn't really make sense here from a "chronological story" standpoint, and it's the same material as the first one (making it the same colors), so it totally feels like a filler element.
