Coincidentally, this was around the time my eldest son was born.
There was a certain amount of worry that Junior would be a little scared of these particular toys, hence one of the reasons why they've only been out of their box a couple of times in the past 8 years (the other reason being I have no where to display them). NECA don't make cenobites anymore (they don't need to - they basically already made them all) however they do have the Gremlins license and not so long ago produced the Spider Gremlin figure.
"Dad, can you move the Spider Gremlin?" asked my now 7 and a half year old child. "It's scary."
"But you've watched Gremlins 2," I said. "You weren't scared then."
"Gremlins 2 is a film. That toy looks real."
Which pretty much all you need to know about how well sculpted and painted this figure is.
