As many of you know, I work at a collectibles store in southern Wisconsin, and we have a very active online business as well as a local retail store. (Our online shop is at http://www.ultimatetshirts.com) We recently got these Jun Planning Statues in stock and after taking a peek in the boxes, I had to put them up!
These are produced by Craftlabel in the states, but are licensed Gremlins merchandise designed by the one-and-only Jun Planning co in Japan! Stripe is about 12″ tall, and frankly I would not want to wake up to him on my dresser, since it probably is the most realistic sculpt I have ever seen of a Gremlin. I think Stripe’s candy is a little bit oversized but it still looks rad as hell.
Gizmo is adorable, about 6″ tall with his pillow, and really a nice display piece.
They don’t have any points of articulation, as they are statues posed intentionally meant to convey emotion and in Stripe’s case, malevolence.
Speaking personally, the Stripe statue is what I hope my wife has stowed away in a closet somewhere for Christmas. She knows how much I love our green-skinned friends.
Part of the reason I am posting this is because apparently some of our visitors haven’t seen these statues before, and also because if Gremlins stuff starts being a huge seller at our store, I can probably convince my boss to get a ton more neat and possibly exclusive stuff in stock! (Things like T-shirt designs, hats, stuff like that)
Anyways I will talk to the boss man later today to see if I can get a discount for you Gremlins Online users as a “Thank You” for being super awesome and helping make this site as great as it is.
I normally don’t post sales type stuff on the site, as I don’t want to give you guys a bad site or something, but as I personally am working there and I have seen our customer comments, I think I can safely put the Gremlins Online! Pod of approval on ultimatetshirts.com. Besides, if anything went wrong, I can go yell at the shipping team myself for you guys.
I don’t think we will be getting restocked on these before christmas, so whatever we have in the warehouse is what we have. Feel free to print this out and add it to your christmas wishlist!
Take care folks and remember, stay out of the light!
