LEGO Dimensions E3 Trailer and promo shots

WB Games has put up this trailer for the new LEGO Dimensions sets coming out this fall, and all are completely compatible with the current starter set and portal! This means if you already bought in to LEGO Dimensions, you won’t need to buy those, just the adventure/fun/story packs.

 

Tons of exciting properties in this game that appeal to a wide audience, but seem to be tailored almost to 80’s/90’s nostalgia fiends like myself!

The full list is below:

  • Gremlins
  • Ghostbusters (2016)
  • Beetlejuice
  • E.T The Extra Terrestrialfgtv.lego_.dimensions.gold2_-1200x675 (1)

  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
  • Adventure Time
  • Mission: Impossible
  • The A-Team
  • The Lego Batman Movie

{Rumor Mill} Gremlins coming to LEGO Dimensions?!

Leaked footage from an upcoming LEGO Dimensions trailer, presumably planned to be featured at E3 next week has gotten the Gremlins Universe all abuzz with this one moment, screencaptured by @BrentOnInternet (https://twitter.com/BrentOnInternet/status/740347698302222336)

The rumors on multiple websites claim that the new LEGO Dimensions game will have:

Sonic the Hedgehog, Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, Goonies, Ghostbusters, Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time, Teen Titans and Mission Impossible

Goonies, Ghostbusters and Gremlins all in the same game? Along with Finn & Jake and the Powerpuff Girls? This can’t be. This is extremely exciting. At least we seem to have confirmation that Gremlins will be in the game, via the trailer that was quickly taken down.

More details as they become available!

Exclusive Interview with Aelia Petro, Author of 30 Years Of Gremlins!

First off, if you haven’t read through this incredible book, be sure to do it right away! ImageIt is absolutely essential reading for every Gremlins fan of all ages. Aelia has put together an unrivaled look at the 1984 film with personally-conducted interviews with cast and crew along with photos you won’t find anywhere else.

Check the book out here, completely free & available only online at http://www.gremlininyourhouse.com/
I had the pleasure of interviewing Aelia as she was finishing this book, and while the intent was originally to release the interview when the book launched on June 8th to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Gremlins, I decided to wait until people had some time to enjoy the book and absorb the incredible amount of love that was put into the project before posting the interview.

Check it out after the break!

{30th Anniversary} Gremlins is now available for digital download!

Hey folks!

Let the mayhem begin!!!

As part of Warner Bros’  celebration in honor of 1984’s Gremlins 30th anniversary as well as Gremlins 2: The New Batch is now gremlisn coveravailable for Digital Download on iTunes! The quality is about the same as the current blu-ray release, and is just exciting to be able to have on my mobile device in high quality. Note: all the pictures in this post are courtesy of Warner Brothers and are grabbed from the iTunes digital download of Gremlins. The price is reasonable, and Warner Bros is offering a significant discount when buying the digital 2-pack. Might be worth it if nothing else than to watch Gremlins on an airplane….the irony!

This is just the first release in what is shaping up to be a fantastic 2014 for Gremlins fans.
Earlier this year, series star Zach Galligan tweeted that he did an 80-minute interview for the 30th anniversary “Definitive” Blu-Ray, which should be hitting later this year, and from what I have heard will contain new never-before-seen footage. Might we see the infamous McDonald’s scene? Probably not, but we just might get something surprising. As the tagline goes: What you see, isn’t always what you get.  00309425web

Speaking personally, I am pleasantly surprised that WB is putting their weight behind Gremlins this year.
The 25th anniversary came and went with a release, but not much fanfare.
In the merchandise realm, fans know that the Gremlins license is strong, with Neca’s recent Spider Gremlin selling incredibly well, and their 1:1 puppet prop replicas really standing out as must-haves for Gremlins fans.  The Gremlins Series 3 line seems to be on indefinite hiatus at this point due to poor sales of previous 00213046webGremlin-themed figures vs their Mogwai figures, but that is another topic for another time.

Granted I would love to see and hold some props/replicas of original Gremlins gear, based on the 1984 sculpts since they seemed so much more “real” and detailed than the sequel’s designs to me. In the end, I am just happy to see more merchandise happening. Just a fact of life. The more money a product brings in means the more awesomeness we can get as fans!

Now let’s cross our fingers for a sequel/remake/reboot and that the Gremlins hype train gets started again. I have reached out to Warner Bros to find out any more details that might be offered regarding other upcoming Gremlin-centric treats,  and I will be sure to get you any information as soon as possible!

What do YOU want to see in a 30th anniversary special edition? Or What do you want to see this year for gremlins? (I heard there is a pretty neato fan book coming soon….stay tuned……)

Gremlins reference on How I Met Your Mother

Neil Patrick Harris is my hero. The fact he uses the “Three Rules” in regards to women makes him incredible.

UPDATE: 11/15/2010 The owner of the video made it private, so if anyone finds a reliable source please let me know asap!
