{Ebay Treasures} Gremlin Puppet Prop & Lenny Mask

Welcome to “Ebay Treasures” a new series of posts that will share some of the awesome and rare Gremlins things that show up on various auction sites and marketplaces online. This will be updated whenever something pops up, so it could be twice in a day, or once in a month, all at the whims of the market!

First up is an awesome Don Post made Lenny Mask from Gremlins 2. These were seen mostly in ads in magazines like Fangoria, Cinescape or Starlog and ranged from 30$ for the basic latex versions to 75$ for the really high-quality ones with hair or more detail in the features.

The mask is up on auction until Saturday, April 7 if you are interested.

As usual, Gremlins Online has no connection to this auction and is just as information, letting everyone know about a cool gremlins item on ebay.

 

Our second Ebay Treasure was found by one of our regular readers Aelia P.

 Unfortunately, we missed the boat on this one, as the auction ended before we could catch it and sell some body parts to afford it, but maybe it is for the best. My wife would probably kill me if I was missing a kidney to pay for a Gremlins prop, though I doubt she would not be surprised at all.

Check the full size of this bad boy out, you won’t regret it!

This auction claimed to be an original prop from Chris Walas’ collection, and while I tend to be skeptical when it comes to “original props”, the quality sure says it is legit. The puppet is fantastic quality for being over 20 years old, as the materials used aren’t designed to survive this long. Even simple handling deteriorates the latex and paints used rapidly due to the natural oils in our hands.

If you want to take a peek at what the $4,000 auction looked like, here is the link: http://cgi.liveauctions.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&sspagename=ADME%3AB%3AWNA%3AUS%3A122&viewitem=&item=230104755964

Thanks again, Aleia for this awesome tip!

If you have an Ebay Treasure that you are putting up, or even that you stumbled upon while browsing various auction/trade sites, send them on in to Jypsy27@gmail.com and I will get it up here ASAP!

    Johnny do you have pictures available of your prop, or it listed anywhere online? I am sure people would be interested in this if they could see it.
