Remember earlier this year when a special Super Bowl commercial delighted us all with a “Gremlins” throwback? Featuring Zach Galligan as Billy, and Howie Mandel as the voice of mogwai Gizmo, the fuzzy creature breaks a cardinal rule and has a sip of Mountain Dew Zero.
To continue this thread, Mountain Dew announced that a Gizmo figure, based on the version we see in the commercial, is available for fans to purchase.
“Retailing for $300, the Gizmo collectible arrives in a vacuum sealed bag and DEW display case, making it easy for fans to follow the three rules: Do not expose Gizmo to light, do not let Gizmo come in contact with water and never feed Gizmo after midnight.
NTWRK, the mobile-first video shopping platform, and MTN DEW Zero Sugar have partnered with UK-based design crew, I Love Dust, to celebrate the DZS x Gremlins reunion with the drop of a limited-edition, collectible DZS x Gremlins Gizmo doll, exclusively on the NTWRK app!”
So, if you have a spare $300 laying around, pick up your own Gizmo on March 26th when he goes on sale.
Animated series “Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai” comes to HBO Max later this year.
