Gremlins 2: The New Batch is one of the most bananas bonanzas that has ever come to the big screen. Joe Dante’s follow up to Gremlins did it big and doubled-down on everything introduced in the first film. It’s hard to choose a favorite out of the plethora of wild and varied Gremlins running amok inside of the Clamp building, but we would definitely have to put Greta up there on our top three. Who are we kidding? We loved them all.
In a very strange move, Mattel Creations’ Monster High Skullector series is dropping a special edition Gremlins figure just in time for Halloween. This ultra limited edition is none other than the aforementioned, red lipstick-wearing, cheetah print dawning, Greta!
Of course, this version differs quite a bit from the Greta from the film. This is a cross pollination of Joe Dante’s Gremlins and Mattel’s Monster High dolls. The result is a Monster High Skullector Gremlin. Best of all she comes with a tiny little Mogwai for good measure.
The official product description goes like this:
“Greta, the fierce nemesis from Gremlins 2: The New Batch is our next doll in the scream-worthy Monster High Skullector series. This boo-tiful version of the iconic, sole-surviving gremlin wows with her gore-geous dress and ghoulish-green locks. To-die-for details and film-inspired accessories adorn this lovestruck gremlin. Greta wears her signature leopard print, spiked stilettos, and fa-boo-lous red lipstick. She even comes with a miniature Gizmo (but please don’t get him wet or feed him after midnight)!”
A strange release indeed, but totally one that we can get behind. I mean you have to love this on the merit of its bizarre nature alone.
Mattel Creations’ Monster High Greta is due to open for orders beginning Oct. 29 at 9 a.m. PT. Be ready to get your orders in because this release is going to be a limited one. Emphasis on the “limited” part.
