Während mich die Prints von Mondo nur selten ansprechen (okay, sie sind mitunter echt super cool, aber nichts für meine kahlen, weißen, Raufaserwände), sind die Figuren, die Mondo bald produzieren will, echte Knüller. Darunter befinden sich der Iron Giant mit unglaublichen 30 Artikulationspunkten, direkt aus CG-Files designed, ein Micheangelo von Mike Mitchell und eine Figur von Alfred Hitchcock, zu dem es aber noch kein Foto gibt. Weil aber dieses Wochenende auch Comic Con in San Diego ist, wird es wohl von dort einige weitere Fotos geben. Der Iron Giant ist irre cool, aber vermutlich kaum bezahlbar, während der Mickey vermutlich ein absolutes Muss für mich ist.


Außerdem wird es noch eine Figur geben, die nach der allerersten Zeichnung der Turtles von Kevin Eastman, dem Erfinder der Turtles, gestaltet wurde. Das Bild gibt es halt, aber noch kein Bild der Figur. Noch nicht.


Momentan ist da auf der Seite von Mondo noch nicht so viel los, weil sie die erst noch neu machen wollen. Dann wird man sie dort aber vorbestellen können und je nach Bestellung werden die Figuren dann produziert. Das ist gut, weil sie dann nicht limitiert sind und wir vielleicht alle eine bekommen können. Vor allem auf den Preis des Iron Giants bin ich gespannt, weil der vermutlich höher sein wird, als wir uns mal eben leisten können. Der Mikey aber… hm.

Hier mal noch die komplette Presseerklärung, mit Beschreibungen der Figuren, die uns erwarten werden.

Mondo is doing toys! The launch of figures for The Iron Giant, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Alfred Hitchcock are Mondo’s first foray into toy collectibles, with the subjects and diversity of design reflecting Mondo’s unique passions. The initial offerings include replicas as well as toys from artist-based designs, which can be previewed at San Diego Comic-Con in Mondo’s booth (#835).

Toys join Mondo’s growing list of pop culture passions in posters, vinyl, gallery events, VHS and apparel. “I am so pumped to announce toys! We’ve been working on this in secrecy for a year and now it’s time to let you guys know about it. We’ll be focusing on existing properties that we love as well as working with artists to bring their own creations to life. This is a new area for us, but I resist the term ‘expansion’ since the goal for Mondo has always been to be a place where artists and designers can work to have their visions realized, whether that’s through posters, gallery shows, vinyl, apparel or now toys,” said Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael.


Celebrating its 15th anniversary, The Iron Giant has reaped praise as being among the greatest animated films ever made (recently ranked #7 on Time Out’s 100 Best Animated Movies list) and it was important for Mondo to honor the film with an appropriately stunning collectible.

The Iron Giant Collectible Figure

The 16? tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.

The Iron Giant Bolt Replica

The Iron Giant Bolt is a life-sized replica of the wayward flashing piece of The Iron Giant, as seen in the film. 6? in length, with a flashing light feature, and authentic details from the film, it’s the perfect-sized piece to display at home, and to show that there’s always hope in the end.


The First Turtle Vinyl Figure

This vinyl figure is based off of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman’svery first drawing of a “Ninja Turtle,” which formed the basis of the popular comic. Struggling artists Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird came up with the Turtles in November 1983 while living in North Hampton, Massachusetts and the spark came from this drawing, which Eastman drew initially as a joke featuring a bi-pedal turtle with nunchucks and a mask. The figure stands 6? tall, and features a classic black and white paint design, based on the original art!

Lil Mikey Vinyl Figure

This will be Mondo’s first toy based on a design from an artist that they work with frequently. Mike Mitchell has a series of pop culture characters called “Just Like Us” and this toy is based on his design in that series for Michelangelo. Turtle fans and people of a particular age will note the accuracy of the real TMNT ice cream on a popsicle stick.

The “Lil Mikey” figure reflects Mondo’s goal to have many of its toys based on artist designs in addition to replicas.

“If I had $5 when I was a kid, it was going to be spent on a ninja turtle figure. So much of my childhood was defined by TMNT, I watched every episode, I had the toys, the shirts, the games, the comics. I wish I could say “Lil Mikey” was a dream come true, but I never could have fathomed this happening. I am so extremely excited about this figure, and I can’t wait to show it off at SDCC,” said artist Mike Mitchell.

HITCHCOCK 1/6 Scale figure

The worlds most famous director is immortalized in this 1/6 scale figure, which features an authentic likeness, his directors chair, clapboard, cigars, as well as props from his most famous films- a butcher knife, a raven, and a seagull! He also features a fine-tailored suit, several interchangeable hands, and a figure stand.

Wenn es dazu genaueres gibt, halte ich euch natürlich auf dem Laufenden, vor allem, wenn es dann ans Bestellen geht. (via Sascha, der auf ein freundlicher Riese ist)
