Apparently quite a few of my defining media memories originated in 1984. I’ve previously mentioned Terminator, but that was just the tip of the iceberg: Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Footloose, The Karate Kid, Beverley Hills Cop… yes I’m definitely a child of the 80s. And as well of those there was… Gremlins.
Gremlins actually hit theaters this week in 30 years ago. I feel old every time I say things like that. And while it didn’t spawn a franchise (the less said about Gremlins 2 the better) it definitely burned itself onto my mind.
So naturally when I discovered that Funko’s POP range of vinyl dolls included some Gremlins figures, it got my attention. As with all the Funko POP stuff the style is more cutesy than horrific, so I think Gizmo comes across better than the Gremlin. What do you think?
Still I’d be happy to put both of them in my cube at work.
