Predatorstuff Reviews the Mogwai Series Mohawk and Gizmo by Narin!

August 1st, 2008

A month or two ago I received a couple of AWESOME new build-ups from Joe Dunaway of a fullscale Rambo style Gizmo and Mohawk Mogwai from Narin’s Gremlins 2 series of sculpts. Tonight I finally had a chance to break out the camera gear and have some fun!

This is supposed to be a series of 5 sculpts from the Gremlins 2 movie, featuring 5 key Mogwai characters, but so far Narin has only issued 2 of the 5 sculpts. Not sure if we’ll see the other 3, but for now we get these two awesome fellas! They are fullscale sculpts and are around a foot tall and quite heavy. My favorite of the two is probably Mohawk, due to the entire attitude of the pose and Joe’s buildup is just gorgeous. I love the way he did the eyes! I had a lot of fun photographing this in my daughter’s playroom in front of her barbie dollhouse.

The kit comes in 2 parts, the head and the body, so it’s fairly simple to assemble and prep for painting. Joe advised me that his kit had numerous pinholes that needed filling and I have since addressed this concern with the producer, but other than that assembly was a snap. I just can not get over how life-like the sculpt and paint application is… the combination of a Narin sculpt and a Dunaway paint job is truly the ultimate combination and you end up with a museum quality piece.

We currently have this piece available in our shop and it’s in-stock, you can click here to purchase Mohawk.

Next up is the very cool Rambo style Gizmo, complete with paperclip bow and flaming pencil arrow!

Gizmo is just as impressive with this iconic pose from the film, and you can either built this with the resin cast pencil, use your own real pencil, the scale is dead on. The liquid paper bottle is sculpted with the flames, so most artists choose to steam off a label from a real bottle and glue it on, which is what Joe did. Again, this piece is SUPER life-like, especially the eyes and the mottling Joe applied to the fur. When my daughter first saw this, she thought it was real!

The part breakdown for this guy includes the head, body, hands, pencil and bottle, paperclip and string. Due to elastic bands rotting in storage, you will need to supply your own for this build-up.

In fact, this piece is so lifelike, especially when painted right, that a Clubhouse forum member recently posted photos of his buildup that won him GOLD at an IPMS Event AND it won Best Figure! (Congrats Dethstryker, your build-up was amazing!)

Gizmo is also available and in-stock in our shop! You can click here for all the order info.

Bottom line on this one folks, if you are a Gremlins fan, you can’t beat these sculpts, especially for the price. I personally LOVED Gremlins and HAD to have these as a tribute in my collection.

And of course, I took a TON of pics! I had some fun with playroom photos as well as some nice booth photos, so please click the photo icon below to visit the gallery:

So a HUGE thank you to Joe Dunaway who did an AMAZING job on these! Now to bug Narin to do the other 3 sculpts so I can complete my invasion of Mogwai! Would love to hear what you guys think of the pics and the kits, please click the comment button below to share your thoughts!

Next review coming next week… The Sideshow FULLSCALE Wolf Bust! Aaaaaaand a new website layout is on the way!

Enjoy,
Dan

    Dan, You MUST get Narin to sculpt the other three. Since I already plan on picking up Mohawk, what evil Mogwai collect would be complete without Daffy, Lenny and George? Heh heh..Might even have to recreate the scene of the four little terrors stuffing ol’ Gizmo into that vent. Or the emergence of Mohawk from the M&Ms…aaaah..the ideas that could come from these guys. Excellent attention to the details on Narin’s behalf. And as always, amazing paint ups by Joe.
