Last week, Mondo announced they were getting into the toy game, and The Blot is beyond excited! This is the just the kind of game changing announcement the designer art toy scene really needs right now. Everything Mondo has done up to this point has been top notch, whether it be t-shirts, screen prints, vinyl records, or VHS movie tapes, so you know they'll take the same approach to toys. I especially can’t wait to see what new artists they’ll be bringing to the toy game, which in turn will hopefully bring new fans to the scene (which we desperately need). Art toys are finally making a comeback!
At San Diego Comic-Con 2014 Mondo debuted their first four figures: a massive Iron Giant figure with tons of articulation, an epic “Lil Mikey” TMNT figure by Mike Mitchell, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figure based on Kevin Eastman’s very first TMNT drawing, and an officially licensed Alfred Hitchcock figure with all kinds of accessories like a director’s chair and megaphone. There were also a few other Iron Giant prop replica type figures on display as well. These are all going to be so great!!! And I will hopefully be updating this blog post with more pictures soon.
All of these figures and so much more we will be released online at the Mondo online store as a pre-order at a later date, so get excited!
