Here are pics of my latest «fan» Gremlins project: a set of 4 «character gremlins» busts from Gremlins 2. Fragile, latex production-used Lenny, George and Daffy «paint test» busts have carefully been recast (Mohawk was cast from an original Kaiyodo kit), in durable polyfoam - as this is meant as a preservation project.
George’s ears are production-used prototype ears, as I couldn’t find original ones - but they’re pretty close. Daffy’s and Mohawk’s teeth have been resculpted.
I have tried to match the original paint job as close as possible - a long analysis of the references I had was necessary, to decompose the paint layers one by one, then to custom recreate the exact colours drop after drop - especially tricky for Mohawk and George. Brian Penikas, Steve Wang… did really crazy paint designs at the time.
Enjoy the pics… and a few making of ones!
