With the holidays around the corner, many horror fans will no doubt be gathering around the warm glow of the television to watch Joe Dante's Gremlins. And if you'd love to have your own little Mogwai in LEGO form, then you may want to consider casting your vote to support a potential LEGO Ideas Gizmo figure (you can even safely vote after midnight).
Created by LEGO Ideas user buggyirk, the Gizmo LEGO set would come with 384 pieces, two pairs of eyes, and a head with a 360-degree swivel capability.
The project currently has over 500 supporters with a little under 300 days left in its campaign. By simply clicking the "Support" button on the project's LEGO Ideas page, you can join the hundreds of fans who have already shown interest in this creation.
For those unfamiliar with how LEGO Ideas works, once a project surpasses 10,000 supporters, it is officially reviewed by LEGO and could eventually make it onto store shelves as an official product. For more information, we have official details and images below:
From buggyirk on LEGO Ideas: "If you want Gizmo made into an official LEGO set, click the blue support button at the top right-hand corner of the page to vote! It's free to support and create a LEGO ID. We need 10,000 supporters for LEGO to review the project!

LEGO Dimensions year 2 will include Gizmo as a minifigure in the cast of characters. With this news, Gizmo has an even greater potential for becoming a real LEGO set with your vote!
This project is based on the classic 1984 film, “Gremlins” and features a brick-built figure of Gizmo. Gizmo is a Mogwai that can spawn Gremlins from his skin if he is ever exposed to water. Gizmo is a very cute, happy and even tempered creature, but Gremlins are quite evil and wreak havoc wherever they go. Gizmo also appeared in the 1990 sequel to "Gremlins" called "Gremlins 2: The New Batch".
My design is just a prototype. If this gets approved, LEGO Master Builders design the final product.
Here are some possible accessory ideas for Gizmo:
Christmas hat, trumpet, candy cane, T.V., or 3D glasses
If Gizmo does get released as an official LEGO set, there are 3 rules you must follow.
- “First of all, keep him out of the light, he hates bright light, especially sunlight, it'll kill him.“
- “Second, don't give him any water, not even to drink.”
- “But the most important rule, the rule you can never forget, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs, never feed him after midnight."
