The Commando Elite (war toys) and the Gorgonites (fantasy creature figures) come to life in this adventure tale. A young boy, with the help of the kind Gorgonites, must protect his home and family from the bellicose Commandos.
The dumpster where the Gorgonites hide from the Commando elite contains a figure of "Gizmo", the original Gremlin from Joe Dante's smash hit GREMLINS.
Larry Benson (Jay Mohr) uses the password "Gizmo" to gain access to Globotech's computers. In a reference to Dante's GREMLINS character.
George Kennedy, Clint Walker, Ernest Borgnine, and Jim Brown unite to play the voices of the Elite Commando soldiers. In 1967 these actors appeared together as soldiers in the WWII film, THE DIRTY DOZEN.
The cast from THIS IS SPINAL TAP (Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer, and Michael McKean) play the voices of the Gorgonites.
