A distinct lack of Rambo Gizmo.

I feel bad for Sad Gizmo.

Gizmo used to look cute but with all that bad plastic surgery even the gremlins are starting to look better. Some people just can't handle fame.

Does Gizmo have gonads?

Does what it says on the tin, but these are not the gizmos I was expecting.

The eyes, what on earth is wrong with so many of their eyes?

This is a good example of how putting eyes on anything will make me feel sorry for it—even the crappy-looking ones, I think, oh no, who's going to buy you?

Gremlins was released in 1984, so it's nearly 30 years old. I'm surprised anyone's still making tie-in merchandise. I'm surprised anyone's still buying it.

Is Ebay also full of illicit Terminator toys, bootleg Ghostbusters toys, etc?

Witnesses report that the suspect drove a pink, Malibu Barbie convertible erratically, though at very low speeds, causing severe damage to a retail store. He potentially faces charges of reckless endangerment of property, criminal mischief and driving without a license.

It's a little silly, but I always feel bad for cheaply-made products. Poor inanimate object, no one really wants you and you're going to break in a few weeks, but it's not your fault!

That was... not what I thought it'd be.
