Haha... mine is 110 mb :P
the .thumbnails folder actually contains a small sized copy of all the images you have on your sd card. It is created by the Gallery3d.apk so that whenever you open the gallery you can see a small sized preview of your images without opening them.
You really can't get rid of it unless you delete the Gallery3d.apk from system/app

I suggest you to use Quickpic it doesn't make the cache that much big. At least for me.
