Mondo has slowly branched out from high-quality limited edition movie posters to vinyl movie soundtracks, t-shirts, and video game posters. And now, toys:
Just-revealed today is the Iron Giant:
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.
Another of the figures to be first available is this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures designed by Mike Mitchell:
The remaining two figures from the first wave are a second TMNT figure, and a deluxe Alfred Hitchcock:
The First Turtle Vinyl Figure This vinyl figure is based off of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman's very 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!
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.
There's very little word on how limited the figures will be, other than this vague statement:
While the limited-edition posters are normally gone within minutes of being announced via social media, Ishmael envisions having collectibles like the Iron Giant figure and the 6-inch replica of the Iron Giant's bolt from the 1999 movie available for a bigger audience.
If successful, the plan is to greatly expand:
His dream is to one day branch out from limited-edition merchandise and be the company that puts high-quality, detailed and innovative toys in places such as Target so collectors like himself don't have to settle for what's there.
"I want to be Todd McFarlane for this generation of toys and get it to where it's not OK to put out crappy toys," Ishmael says. "If you put out crappy toys, they won't sell because there's all this good stuff next to it."
