NECA Unleashes New Action Figures From ‘Gremlins 2’

by Thomas Tuna

The tiny terrors are back–and now you can add them to your display shelves.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch–the 1990 follow-up to the original film–introduced horror fans to a whole new group of ghastly gremlins and this week, as reported by news.toyark.com, action figure replicas of three of those destructive critters are being made available by NECA Toys.

New from NECA are the Ultimate Brain Gremlin figure and a Demolition Gremlin figure two-pack–shown on this page. All are six inches tall and are open for pre-orders now for shipment next March. The Brain Gremlin is priced from $37.99 to $42.99 and the two-pack Demolition Gremlins run from $74.99 to $84.99.

The Brain Gremlin, as fans of the movie will recall, got a healthy dose of Dr. Catheter’s brain serum and, well, the rest is Gremlins history. This fully articulated figure wears a tailored fabric suit and comes with a pipe, syringe, brain serum and interchangeable hands.

The two fully articulated Demolition Gremlin figures–ready to wreak havoc on a city skyscraper–are outfitted with barrel, mallet, bomb, dynamite, plunger, hard hat, a fabric T-shirt and vest and interchangeable hands.

The original 1984 Gremlins movie–directed by Joe Dante from a Chris Columbus screenplay–follows a young man who receives a strange creature called a mogwai, which then spawns small, aggressive monsters. The sequel–Gremlins 2The New Batch–finds the gremlins multiplying inside a Manhattan skyscraper. A third film is in development, with a script by Columbus reportedly already written.
