This full scale Greta Gremlin prop came to us already restored via the talents of Kira Tidmore. She was able to bring her back to her former glory, complete with arm holders to help relieve pressure on the fragile foam.
Greta Gremlin, 30+ years later
After a light restoration, Greta is holding up in surprisingly good shape. The foam is exhibiting only minor cracking and deterioration. This is a fantastic example of creature craftsmanship straight from Rick Baker's Cinovation Studios. Greta is the combined work of Grant Arndt, Steve Wang head design and Jim McPherson arms. Grant did this incredible paint job.
Our Greta puppet was used specifically for one shot where Forrester gets 'attacked' by a very grabby Greta and clings to him while he runs down the hall. Here are a few screenshots from her scene.
Gremlins 2: The New Batch
The magical collectibles store that Gizmo calls home has just been destroyed, and the tiny monster finds his way into a newly erected skyscraper. Billy Peltzer (Zach Galligan) and his bride-to-be, Kate (Phoebe Cates), who have previously dealt with Gremlins run amok, discover that Gizmo and an impish legion of reptilian pals are inhabiting the downtown building. The couple tries to stop the creatures from escaping into New York City, but this new batch of beasts might be uncontrollable.
