Gremlin puppet mounted on helmet created for Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Gremlin puppet mounted on helmet created for Gremlins 2: The New Batch. (Warner Bros., 1990) In Gremlins 2, Academy Award-winner Rick Baker signed on to handle the creature F/X duties. Naturally, this sequel to the successful Gremlins (1984) needed more “Gremlins”! One of the practical effects solutions to creating the appearance of an army of these little demons was to attach figures to football helmets, which could be worn by puppeteers allowing a puppeteer to operate up to three “Gremlins” at one time. This ingenious prop consists of a highly detailed “Gremlin” figure attached to an actual commercial football helmet with chinstrap. The torso of the “Gremlin” is rigid vacuum-formed plastic while the shoulders, head and arms are made of foam latex to provide movement. Includes hard rubber teeth and painted false eyes. The figure is attached to the top of the helmet and both helmet and figure are painted in great matching detail. The figure is in good condition, having been carefully archived by the studio. Accompanied with an original Warner Bros. Studios Certificate of Authenticity. Estimated Price:$4,000 – $6,000 USD
