So yesterday I went out toy hunting for the first time since the pandemic began, with the intent to find Hasbros new War For Cybertron: Kingdom version of Beast Wars Dinobot.
I did not find him.
But instead I found not one, but two different figures I had been wanting to buy for a long time but hadnt because their prices online were 10-30$ more than what they were worth. When I tripped over Gizmo here at Target I could not believe my luck!https://imgur.com/gallery/oLvb93r
This here is Necas Ultimate Gizmo, who is of course our Main Mogwai from the Gremlins series of films. Back when I went on a Gremlins kick two years ago, this guy was already hard to find and going for $50 or more online, $20 bucks above retail. Hes literally been sitting in my cart for two years waiting for the price to go down, and then BAM, there he was! Instant buy!
So hes appropriately adorable but he does have a few flaws. His most interesting and frustrating feature is his articulated eyeballs - controlled by a little ball in the back you can make him look all directions. Unfortunately the ball is pretty loose and far too often he ends up looking stoned (which actually is kind of appropriate). He also comes with plenty of accessories - he has four (four!) different faces so you can have him looking smug, scared, happy(?) and angry. He comes back with some christmas accessories including an adorable little santa hat, candy cane and trumpet. But more importantly, his angry face has a bandanna and he has his makeshift bow and arrow from when he Went Rambo in Gremlins 2 - the most adorable little badass there ever was. Unfortunately the figures other major flaw is that his hands arent actually designed to hold any of his accessories well, so you kind of have to wedge them in there and hope for the best.
I was super stoked to get him and even with the flaws, he completes my fun little Gremlins Collection.
Unless they ever make a new Brain Gremlin that is.
