Alien Gnome Bandits

Alien Gnome BanditsSomeone pointed out these Alien Gnome Bandits to me a while back and I just love them. The only problem is they remind me of something and I just can’t put my finger on it. It’s probably a movie, but could be a TV show. All I can remember is that there are some little people or trolls or tiny monsters taking away a gnome from someones yard and they are carrying it exactly like these guys. They are laughing and snickering while they run away with it. This is driving me crazy! I know a short ride…yada yada yada. I know it’s something I have seen recently, though. If anyone has an idea of what I am remembering please, I beg you, let me know. Regardless they are just hilarious. They were designed by Utah artist Fred Conlon. He uses recycled and found metal that will rust over time to make these weather safe guys. The regular one for $49.95 is 8″ tall, but there is also a large one at 15″ tall available for $149.95. A little steep, I admit, but so worth it for the laugh you’ll get every time you leave your house.

    Gremlins?

  4. Susan Says:

    OOhhh LOve them!! Do they come with the unfortunate Gnome? (This is just too much fun to pass up!)

  5. jane Says:

    Susan: They do come with the gnome. I think I’m going to order a set!
    Brat: I was thinking it might be Gremlins, but I haven’t seen that in forever. Is there a scene like that?

  6. Brat Says:

    I haven’t seen it in forever either, but that movie was what I was reminded of when I saw the bandits.

  7. Wynter Says:

    I hate to date myself but if it’s not Gremlins, it’s gotta be that B-movie Critters. They are more round and snicker like the gremlins. I haven’t seen either in quite a while and Gremlins is far better than the spoof-like B-movie Critters.

    I was thinking “Critters” myself.
    although they kinda look like Evil “Pac-men” lol

  9. Rob Says:

    They look like the creatures in the 1995 Steven King movie called the Langoliers. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112040/

    I just watched “over the hedge” and they brought a gnome back from the yard. Is this it?

  11. jane Says:

    You know… I think you might be right. I’m going to have to watch that again. I’ll let you guys know.
    Thanks!
