The Brain you've never seen

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 31

And we end our Halloween countdown with Greta, the female Gremlin. NECA's supposed to be making one sometime, but theirs isn't out yet (as of this writing - it's the middle of January for me, but it's the end of … Continue reading

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 30

Once again one-upping NECA, Jakks' Phantom of the Opera Gremlin not only gets his white mask and his gray hair, he also gets a black cape! It's a separate piece of plastic, glued in place between the head and body, … Continue reading

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 29

Day 29 has another really wide flap - this had better not be another damn bag of slime. Godammit, it's another bag of slime. With a second Skeleton Gremlin. Official pictures make the combo look pretty cool, but it's a … Continue reading

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 28

Two days in a row with a brown Gremmy, but this one is wearing popcorn bags on his ears. That must be something from the movie, because NECA's Ultimate Gremlin could do the same thing. Even if that release suggests … Continue reading

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 27

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 26

Okay, definitely wasn't expecting this: it's a second Stripe mogwai, last seen back on Day 3. Why's he back on Day 26, with a new sculpt, featuring different hair? At first it seems pointless, until you notice he's holding something … Continue reading

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 24

Clearly Jakks knew that some people would be using this like a normal December advent calendar, because today's toy is Santa Gizmo. Same mogwai body as usual, but this time the head is molded with a floppy red Santa hat … Continue reading

Gremlins Countdown Calendar review - Day 23

Dang, it took 13 days for Daffy to go from his mogwai form to a grown-up Gremlin? He really is the most unpredictable one around, isn't he! His bright green body gets dark spots by the elbows, matching the few … Continue reading
