Thank you to NECA for sending along their Gremlins 2: The New Batch Ultimate Demolition Gremlins 2-Pack Figures along for review.
Availability: April 2022
The Ultimate Demolition Gremlins are packaged in a window box, with nicely done artwork that represents a crate, and logo’s on the front. The sides include images of the figures, and the back includes an additional image, a description of the film and a list of accessories.
The Gremlins are given the same love and attention to detail as we’ve seen through the entire Gremlins line, with sculpted textures and great paint applications on the skin, including their head, hands feet and tail. The green Gremlin has most of his body covered with the fabric clothing, but underneath is the same great sculpt as we’ve seen on Ultimate Stripe and other Gremlins figures. The amount of detail that goes into the Gremlins line is astonishing and NECA continues to offer such incredible and accurate figures that you will recall from the film. The fabric clothing is nicely done and includes a fabric tee and jean vest, with hand stitches and great attention to detail. The clothing is non-removable, and meant to stay permanently on.
Since the brown Gremlin does not have the fabric clothing, you see the amazing detail on the sculpt and all the great deco included. Both figures are given new head sculpts with their own unique likeness, with the same great attention to detail and sculpted textures. The brown Gremlin has swivel-hinged ears, which is something that you normally don’t see on a Gremlin. The hart hat can also be placed on either of their heads, with is a nice touch.
Included are some of the best accessories you can ask for, and each given lots of great detail and likenesses that collectors will go crazy for. The barrel has a removable lid and the words ACME TNT on the side, along with a black deco and a grey wash. The dynamite plunger is also painted in black with a grey wash, and the words ACME on the front. The mallet is given deco that represents wood, with a bit of texture also applied. The rest of the accessories include bomb, can, dynamite bundle, dynamite plunger, interchangeable hands, hard hat, Statue of Liberty plans, and four sticks of dynamite. These are given such great sculpts and deco that look realistic, and accurate to the source material.
The articulation is standard for the Gremlins line, including a ball jointed head, ball hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed hips, swivel-hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles. The brown Gremlin also has swivel-hinged ears.
Overall, these came out great, especially those attention to details with the paint apps, skin textures and accessories. Fans of the film will definitely love this figure and they make a great addition to your growing NECA Gremlins collection.
