The Head Of A Gremlin In Today’s eBay Prop-Watch

I usually try to maintain some degree of mystery on what the eBay Prop-Watch pick is until AFTER the break, but today’s item is too cool not to rave over from the offing. “Gremlins” is a classic. Comedy/horror at its best. Director Joe Dante has been pretty quiet since 1998’s “Small Soldiers” — a highly underrated gem and definite future Sick Day Stash fodder — but he’s about to re-emerge in a big way if the buzz on his 3-D thriller “The Hole,” which just picked up accolades at the Venice Film Festival, is accurate.

So. Prop-Watch. Today you’re bidding on a head. A Gremlin head. Not one of those cute, cuddly Gizmo-types. The ugly, green, lizard-like beast with big cat-like eyes and two rows of gleaming white teeth. Hit the jump to see what I mean.

I know what you’re thinking. “It’s definitely a Gremlin head.” Told ya so. There are a few caveats. First: no certificate of authenticity. The seller isn’t a registered prop trader. Just some fan with a friend who was a crew member. Which I guess makes this stolen property, but I don’t think anyone’s going to prosecute.

Price is also a factor. $6,000, Buy It Now. And with only 38 comments to the seller’s name — one of them a negative — that means you’re spending a lot of money on a not-necessarily-trustworthy source. Still, it’s a cool thing to gawk at, right?
