Jakks Pacific is offering a Gremlins Countdown Calendar that features characters from both Gremlins, and Gremlins 2: The New Batch. This calendar includes 31 different Gremlins and the inside is inspired from the movie theater.
The rules are simple: Keep your Mogwai away from water, bright lights and, most importantly, never–never–feed him after midnight. Looks like the rules were broken and the Gremlins are running amuck! Kids and adults alike will enjoy the spooky surprises and cool collectibles from the Gremlins Countdown Calendar. With the Gremlins Countdown Calendar, you can enjoy 31 days of creepy collectible surprises from the movie Gremlins. Surprises include 1-inch stylized posed figures and more to build the Gremlins world. The Gremlins are on the loose! Help Gizmo find all the Gremlins and mean Mogwai before they find him and count down the days until Halloween with this mischievously creepy Gremlins Countdown Calendar. The calendar includes favorite characters like Gizmo, Stripe, and more! It features pop-up environment pieces so you can re-create the movie theater scene. If you missed Halloween the calendar can also be used to countdown other favorite holidays including Christmas or New Year’s Eve.

Availability: August 2020
The Gremlins Countdown Calendar features 31 days, December 1st – December 31st, and 31 different Gremlins characters open and collect. Each of the days are numbered and like other calendars, you have to open each tab to see what’s inside.
The Countdown Calendar is inspired from the movie theater scene in Gremlins, and includes 24 chairs that fold up, and beautifully done artwork inspired from this memorable scene. The floor is covered in popcorn, soda and other objects as the Gremlins are making a mess, and they did a great job capturing this. The back wall includes the exit, lights, curtains, and is also where the Gremlins are stored inside. The chairs can stay up on their own, which is great, and there is almost enough chairs for each of the Gremlins offered in this set.
Many of the Gremlins in this set you’d remember from the movies, including Gizmo, Greta, Stripes, Mohawk, Phantom, Gremlins in 3D glasses and more. There are also three bags of goo, which is the melted part of a Gremlin, 2 skeleton Gremlins, 2 eggs, baby Gremlins and more. Each of the figures are not articulated, and almost all of the adult Gremlins share the same body, with a different head sculpt.
In the video, we did an unboxing and review, and you can take a closer look at this set in order of each of the 31 days.
Overall, the Gremlins Countdown Calendar is a lot of fun to display and play with, and features a great item to add to your collection. This movie scene is one of the most memorable ones from the film, so make sure to pick this up now at one of the stores listed below:
