Do you own a Mogwai? Do you plan on purchasing one? Then this is the perfect fan-art for you! Artist Brad McGinty creates great art, much of it with a retro vibe. His ‘Anatomy of’ prints are wonderful creations, not least because they retain some mystery thanks to the use of Chinese writing!
The artist also created similar prints for Alien and Predator making those characters look even more menacing!
Delve into the artist portfolio site and you’ll also find a very scary rendition of Ronald McDonald!
Do you remember walking through your Great Aunt’s home wondering why she hung plates all over her wall? Did you think to yourself, why would she do this? I will never hand a plate on my wall! Well I used to feel the same way until I started enjoying these ironic twists on the classic collector plates, the Altered Antique Plate. They take a perfectly boring plate and add interesting pop culture characters to them. The result is conversation starting awesomneness. Gizmo!

So here’s the thing about being in my family. Sometimes, I’m going to ask you to do stupid things. And sometimes, I’m going to digitally capture those stupid moments with my phone. And sometimes, those photos are going to make their way on to the internet.
With that being said, here’s my son wearing a “Gizmo” Gremlins hat that I ran across at F.Y.E.
Sorry, kiddo. It’s nothing a few years of therapy won’t take care of a few years down the road …
It’s hard to believe that I’ve been posting here at the Retroist for a full six months now! I hope you have enjoyed my contributions to the site as much as I have enjoyed contributing them!
From me, and Gizmo, have a Merry Christmas and a great weekend!
Just played my first game of Gremlins the Board Game and I loved it. This is not a deep game, but it is a great game for fans of the Gremlins franchise and can be played by 2-4 players ages 8 & up Your goal in the game is to rid the town of Kingston Falls of Stripe and his pesky gremlins pals.
The board is plain enough, but depicts the different locations in Kingston Falls. You will visit Dorry’s Tavern, the Peltzer Home, and the Department Store as you try to move around the town collecting weapons and throwing gremlins into Microwaves.
The re-playability on the game goes up 100% if you have Gremlins fans at the table playing with you. For non-Gremlin fans, expect to get 2 or 3 games out of them before they get tired of the game. Since I am in the former, I look forward to playing the game for years to come.
