May 22, 2015

Gremlins ReAction

Gremlins are hands-down the most mischievous ReAction line yet!

Our Billy Peltzer figure goes toe-to-toe with the likes of both Stripe and Gizmo,
who come in a variety of packs featuring tons of accessories!

Gizmo is paired with Barney the family dog, a trumpet, and candy cane!
Christmas Gizmo comes wearing a Santa hat and a keyboard!

Mogwai Stripe comes with a computer while Gremlin Stripe bears a chainsaw!
Not to mention the gun-brandishing Bandit Gremlin and Cinema Gremlin with movie popcorn!

Just don’t feed them after midnight!

Coming in June!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    Do people buy this crap? I just don’t understand how this company is churning these figures out as much as they are and obtaining all the licenses when every store location I go to; be it in NYC, FL, or CA has these things shelf warming worse then transformers bumblebees.
    Its no wonder the toy industry is crashing and iconic stores are closing. Manufacturers are fabricating tons of uninteresting garbage and no one is buying it. Nobody wants figures of a generic looking human male/female. It’s association with a famous movie or TV show is irrelevant.

  • I want it, and thankfully I’m getting it.

      They look awesome. They totally capture that 80s toy feeling, packaging and everything.

        I can only assume you guys are in the minority of this products interest. Like I said in my previous post the majority of collectors out there find these things uninteresting and they do clog shelves. If you are in NYC, take a look at forbidden planet and midtown comics for example.
        I will say that my comment was geared towards the human characters. I.E a generic looking man/woman. The gremlin figures aren’t bad.
