There's obviously been plenty of Gizmo figures over the years, some that make better toys for kids, some that are more detailed for collectors, but what makes Neca's latest effort great is that it is the right size to fit into any die-cast vehicle collection. I collect both die-cast vehicles from the movies as well as horror figures and this is a nice combination of both. Sure Gizmo itself isn't full bodied or you can't move and pose him as much as other similar cheaper retail price horror figures such as Neca's Gizmo with accessories from a couple of years ago. But this one isn't supposed to be a poseable figure, it's supposed to represent Gizmo driving Barbie's car from the first movie. So with that the obvious issue is that the car in the movie was pink, this one is red, the car looked a bit different too and there's no steering wheel for gizmo's hands to rest on. So this won't satisfy purists and there are actually old toy versions from the 80s of Gizmo in a pink car which you might find on an online auction site or something, but the important difference is that they are a lot bigger than this one.

This one comes on a blister pack which is the same height and within a couple of cms width of Johnny Lightning blister cards. Which means if you're into keeping some of your collection in their original packaging this looks great alongside them. And Gizmo in the corvette does display well in the packaging, with a nice silhouette of Spike's shadow with his arms in the air and the Gremlins word logo behind the toy. On the back of the card is a picture of this piece out of packaging along with two other motorized pull back and Go Action gizmos released at the same time, One has gizmo with a couple of eggs after he has gotten wet and the other has him coming out of a box jack in the box style. We also for some reason have a parody of the Inspector Gadget theme song chorus Go Gadget Go! with the words Go Gizmo Go! on there as well. Don't really know what that's all about.

The car itself is plastic, not metal as obviously is the gizmo figure. It's one of those pull the car back, release it and it speeds forward under its own momentum type toys. The car itself is 10cm long, would be 2.5cm high if Gizmo could come out (he can't) and about 5.5cm high with Gizmo inside. It's about twice the size of your mass produced Matchbox and other brands car, in fact it's the same size as your 1/43 sized vehicles such as Corgi often release in diorama packs such as this Harry Potter one. So if you're a taker out of packaging displayer and you've got other 1/43 sized vehicles, it looks all right besides them, altough of course Gizmo inside makes it taller.

This is not the most heavily detailed of your Gremlins figures but to be fair it didn't cost in shops anywhere near the same price as ones that are. If you want heavy detailed Gremilns figures I'd check out NECA Cult Classics Gremlins 2 Brain figure, it's one of the best and detailed horrors figures I own.

I had to say that this toy was more realastic than most plastic gremlins figures. However, a young child probably hate this toy because it has almost no articulation. So it's more of a statue than a toy. It's so adorable as seen in the movie. however, his face looks a little sad. Overall, I like this toy and will recommend it to any collector.
