Outside of Ghost Busters, Scooby-Doo, and Stranger Things, LEGO has hardly produced any sets based on horror properties. One particular horror fan is looking to change all that, with a LEGO set dedicated to the ’80s horror-comedy, ‘Gremlins’.
For over 35 years, this wildly original story about a small suburban town invaded by a horde of mischievous creatures on Christmas eve has delighted fans of all ages and Ivan Guerrero’s proposed set pays tribute to some of the iconic scenes of the original film, as well as, making references to the sequel, ‘Gremlins 2: The New Batch’.
Guerrero’s proposed set would include a detailed model of Billy Peltzer’s home in the snow-covered town of Kingston Falls, which features four rooms: Billy’s bedroom, the kitchen, the living room, and Randall Peltzer’s workshop.
It will come with six mini-figures, including Billy, Kate, Stripe, Mr. Wing, and two additional Gremlins. It also includes Billy’s dog, Barney, a mini build of Pete in his Christmas tree costume, and a baby-scale minifig of Gizmo.
But Guerrero needs your help to make this dream a reality. If the project can get enough fan votes, LEGO will consider producing ‘Gremlins’ as a real, licensed set.
The best part is it’s not going to cost you anything to help support this dream, just head on over to Lego.com and show your love for ‘Gremlins’.
At the time of this article, the project has 7,638 supporters, and only needs an additional 2,362 supporters to reach its set goal.
Up until this point, the only LEGO products released for ‘Gremlins’ has been a LEGO Dimensions team pack, that included Gizmo, Stripe, an R.C. Racer Car, and a Flash ‘n’ Finish camera. Let’s change all that by showing our support for Guerrero’s idea and by telling LEGO that we want to see a proper LEGO set for this truly iconic film.
Just remember there are three important rules for owners of this LEGO set…
1. Do not expose it to bright lights.
2. Do not get it wet.
3. And most importantly, do not build it after midnight.
Unleash your little Gremlins upon your own LEGO city. Just remember to follow the three rules before you start building!
I have come here to chew bubblegum and write horror, and I’m all out of bubblegum.
