    Oh and the Gremlins 2 soundtrack but that’s it. I’m not sure why NECA has put out some nice stuff over the years.

  2. John says:

    It’s kinda funny that even though I love Gremlins 2 and Gremlins and own them on VHS and DVD I don’t have single bit of merchandise from either film besides two video games I bought used over the years.

    I had some serious nerd rage when you talked about game of thrones which made me question what Im doing with my life. Thank you.

    Man, I could listen to Joe Dante all day long. He REALLY needs to get a podcast going with him and his Trailers from Hell buddies!
