This review is from: Neca Gremlins - Lenny Gremlin Action Figure (Toy)
Like the earlier releases from NECA's "Gremlins" line (George, Daffy, Flasher and Electric Gremlin) they bring us "Lenny" to complete the trio of principle bad guys (or quartet if you were luck enough to get "Mohawk" from NECA's Cult Classics line several years ago).

Named after the characters from the novel "Of Mice And Men" Lenny compliments the George figure quite nicely - he's the thoughtless brute strength to George's scheming intelligence. This figure is great in as much as it's not a repaint of a pre-existing figure. With an entirely new body sculpt, unique character head and a very impressive paint job, getting a "Lenny" figure is money well spent. Like the earlier gremlins releases the articulation is excellent with ball and socket joints on the wrists, ankles, shoulders and hips and hinge/swivel joints on the knees and elbows enabling you to pose him in a variety of positions.

Unlike previous figures, however, is the neck joint. All the other gremlin figures have a large bulbous neck "ball" that fits into the "socket" of the body. This resulted in limited movement for the head. Lenny's head sit's nicely on a peg that protrudes from the body's neck giving a much improved range of movement and enabling you to "pop" his head off to remove his tie if you want to. This is a vast improvement on the previous neck articulation and makes me wonder why they couldn't have used it across the range! His paint job is excellent albeit a darker shade of brown from either the photographs on the packaging or the movie but this is a minor quibble as it's wonderfully detailed (especially the stripes down his back) and it's good to have a gremlin that isn't a shade of green.

The only accessory Lenny comes with is his tie which is a bit of a shame as I don't really remember him wearing a tie in the film (a chef's hat and apron - yes. A tie - no) But as the only accessory George came with was a tiny cigar, I'm prepared to let that go as the tie does add to his character (and makes him look less naked!)

Overall, a wonderful figure to add to your collection (if you've got one) and if the rumours I've heard about the "Gremlins" line ending because of poor global sales is anything to go by, I'd advise you to get your hands on them before they disappear for ever!

This review is from: Neca Gremlins - Lenny Gremlin Action Figure (Toy)
Ok, firstly this isn't really a toy as such, its more of a collectible aimed at sad old fools like me who are fond of the Gremlins films. If you're buying this as a toy for a child, don't be surprised if it breaks, and don't leave reviews complaining about how it breoke after 10 minutes. It's designed to be displayed...Now having said that, it's not for me to dictate what you write in your reviews, because you are entitled to write anything you want, just like me. If you want to write a review saying that it broke after 10 minutes, then go ahead, as long as it did break after 10 minutes, because anything else would be a lie, and that's just not cricket. Anyway, back to the review...it's Lenny Gremlin from Gremlins 2!!! It looks like Lenny from Gremlins 2, so that's a good start for a Lenny from Gremlins 2 action figure. Lenny is wearing a tie (he did in the movie for about 10 seconds), which means he is presentable enough to introduce to your parents, or take to church on a sunday, but be careful as he might break...Anyway, if you like Gremlins, and you want a souvenir from the film, then these Gremlins figures are all fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do My Eyes Deceive Me?, 7 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Neca Gremlins - Lenny Gremlin Action Figure (Toy)
Is NECAs Gremlins series 2 finally in my hands?
After a very long wait the (almost certainly final) next wave of Gremlins are here.
Overall all, its weaker than wave 1 assortment, with Lenny being the essential figure to pick up.
NECA sculptor Trevor Zammit has done an amazing job with Lenny, and unlike most of the gremlins figures, Lenny is a mostly new sculpt with only arms and legs being re-used.
I'm glad NECA went the extra mile to make this character screen accurate.
The paintwork is superb, especially in the figures eyes and suprisingly his back - although in my opinion they went a tad bit heavy on the gloss finish.
Articulation is the same as the previous wave, They have NECA style ball shoulders, with pin elbows and knees, and V hips. The also have ball jointed ankles and wrists, and rotation at the neck. The company has really improved in this area over the past couple of years.
The only thing I find odd about this figure is the choice of accessory, a neck tie thats on screen for less than 15 seconds.
Its well detailed, and I'm always grateful to get accessories, but this ones not easily removed.
Hopefully we will get a wave 3, but with only Mogwai series 3 confirmed at the moment, its looking doubtful.
