Long time blog-friend of Gremlins Online, Dinosaur Dracula (Previously known as the amazing X-Entertainment) is continuing his always-entertaining Halloween Countdown and finally I have a reason to post about it here!
If you aren’t familiar, Dinosaur Dracula is a staple website for those of us who grew up with Gremlins, Ghoulies, Critters, He-Man, Ghostbusters and other pop culture icons of the 80’s and beyond. Matt, the creator of both Dinosaur Dracula takes us down a path of nostalgia in his own unique manner and thankfully a lack of snark that seems to pervade the internet these days. Matt genuinely loves what he does and it shows in the effort put into his articles.
For today’s entry on “Dinosaur Dracula 2014 Halloween Countdown” Matt shares the third installment of spooky action figures from his childhood (and ours, naturally.) If you scroll down a bit after reading the entries, you will see a familiar Chef from Gremlins 2; Lenny! He talks about the Applause figurine line that was pretty much all we got here in the states for Gremlins 2 toys. I remember buying my Gremlins 2 Figurines at the hospital gift shop at St. Luke’s in Milwaukee, as well as Steins Garden & Gifts in brookfield. Seriously, do you know how hard it is to make up a reason as a kid to go to a garden store? I’ll tell you: It was very difficult.
So check out the link below and read the rest of the countdown. Gremlins are all over his site, don’t be afraid to search the archives foe memories of toys and fads long gone.
