About this deal

In fact, I am willing to bet, if ever photographed by Matthew K, most people would have a very hard time telling if it was the figure or the actual puppet used in the movie. Despite this being the third Mohawk figure NECA has released, Spider Gremlin does not share any parts with the others. The package is surprisingly small, considering what's inside, which is good for storage and shelf space. The Spider Gremlin's hide transitions between reptilian scales and spikes and arachnid carapace so smoothly that you almost cannot tell where one starts and the other stops.

The Spider Gremlin's abdomen has a complex color pattern, and the toy does not just recreate that, it also has paint for the leathery texture of the part! he hinged torso and swivel abdomen are almost non-factors, but it's nice to have them - and really, it's all about the spider legs! About midway through the movie, Mohawk grabbed a flask of spider DNA, and then wandered off for a little while. They aren't labelled, but it's easy enough to figure out: The small legs go in front, and are bent slightly to show which is which. You can even tell this from a quick photo - and considering the levels of re-use shown in the rest of this line, that is incredible.The dates shown above are the distributors estimated arrival dates, but these are subject to change by the manufacturer without notification, so products may arrive sooner or later than the dates shown and Figureland cannot be held responsible for changes that may occur but we will keep you updated as and when possible if any change occurs.

The Spider Gremlin's weight might warp his legs if you pose him the wrong way without his stand, and his abdomen is hollow, solid plastic - potentially brittle, since it has no give. As always the figure is designed for the adult collectors market and kept boxed this figure will rapidly appreciate in value. With a figure this huge and complex and this cheap (comparatively), you would be forgiven for not expecting any accessories. Well, it is early January and that is no time to allow hyperbole to rest just because we started a new year. Their George and Daffy gremlins have been particularly nice, as has the Stripe mogwai, but you really cannot go wrong with any of them.

Articulation is great, could do with a torso joint but every other point that could be articulated is articulated. There was a certain amount of worry that Junior would be a little scared of these particular toys, hence one of the reasons why they've only been out of their box a couple of times in the past 8 years (the other reason being I have no where to display them). Gremlins toys are kind of in their own scale, but this one towers over all of them, as well as anything else in the 6"-8" range.

Please refer to the individual product page to find out the estimated size of the actual model you would like to purchase.

When I got it out of the box and assembled I was gobsmacked by how good it is, so if you're thinking about getting one just do it; you won't regret it. The lines are all crisp and clean, which is incredible considering all the complex patterns Mohawk has covering his body. So, 1:2 scale quite ltierally means it is 1/2 (half) the size and 1:4 scale means it is 1/4 (quarter) the size.
