In 1984, Warner Bros. released a series of newspaper advertisements for the film Gremlins. Each ad ran in different seasons, and featured different themes to promote the film. The ads featured art from Greg Winters, who had worked on the films poster (and a bunch of video game box art). NECA has been releasing a few figures based on these ads. The first was a Summer Games Gremlin, an an upcoming one is a Santa Gremlin. Sandwiched between those two releases is the Back To School Gremlin. The figure features one of the Gremlins in jeans, a t-shirt, and a baseball cap. Like the ad, the figure includes books, a baseball glove and ball, a bus stop sign, and a Gremlins themed lunch box. In the US, the Back to School Gremlin is a Target Exclusive, and will be hitting stores this month.
Our friends at NECA were kind enough to send over the figure for an advanced look. After the jump you can find a full gallery and my thoughts on the upcoming figure.
