Funko's Gremlins ReAction Figures: Due out this summer are Funko's Gremlins ReAction figures, and the company recently released the first look at three of the upcoming figures in the line based on Joe Dante's classic 1984 film: Stripe, Gangster Gremlin, and the 3D Cinema Gremlin.

The Gremlins ReAction figures will comprise seven items. According to The Toyark via Reis O'Brien on the Funko Funatic, the Kelly "Kate" Beringer (played by Phoebe Cates) figure was recently pulled from the line due to Cates not approving of the figure's look. Here's the final lineup:

  • Gizmo
  • Christmas Gizmo
  • Stripe
  • Stripe (Mogwai version)
  • Gangster Gremlin
  • 3D Cinema Gremlin
  • Billy Peltzer
