“The Gremlins” is the story of a WWII RAF pilot and how he discovers Gus the Gremlin on his plane and convinces Gus and the other Gremlins to help them with the war against the Germans.
Fifinella stands 11 1/2″ tall from the top of her horns to the bottom of her boots and was made by Dark Horse Comics.
