Totally shocking

Yes, the pun was inevitable, but really, when you look at our new Toys ‘R’ Us exclusive Lightning Gremlin action figure, it is kind of shocking. You wouldn’t think that something like the disembodied electricity of a mythical creature would make for good figure-fodder, but this thing is not only gorgeous, it’s accurate. Not to toot our own horn, but we pretty much nailed this one.

Lightning Gremlin appears in 1990’s Gremlins 2: The New Batch and is a normal Gremlin until drinking an electrifying potion in the Clamp Center lab turns it into pure electricity. Eventually, Billy traps the Lightning Gremlin in the Clamp Center phone system and many spoilers ensue, but suffice it to say that our energetic friend here has a major role in the movie’s ending.

Details

  • Available July
  • Exclusive To Toys ‘R Us
  • 6 3/4″ tall, 7.5″ wide

Gone “out of socket”

And yeah, maybe all that sounds unrealistic, but we’re talking about Gremlins, and “realistic” need not apply. Still, when it comes to this figure, no other word quite cuts it. Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be revealing a series of TRU exclusives — so keep an eye out — but as the first, the Lightning Gremlin is absolutely gorgeous and really something special for fans and collectors alike.

Lightning Gremlin will be available at Toys ‘R’ Us stores everywhere starting in July. For more info and updates on Gremlins merchandise and other exclusives, keep it tuned to your friendly neighborhood action figure wholesaler or check out the Toys ‘R’ Us website.
