Mondo Iron Giant

Mondo, known for their amazing art movie posters, are getting into the toy business now. USA Today has a story about their latest venture. They are kicking things off with a 16″ tall Iron Giant Figure as well as a vinyl Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Figure. Here’s some snippets:

“The first wave of toys will be on display this week at Mondo’s booth at Comic-Con in San Diego beginning Wednesday, including a 16-inch figure of the central robot from The Iron Giant, a vinyl figure based on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman’s first drawing of a Ninja Turtle, a “Lil Mikey” vinyl figure based on a Mondo TMNT poster by artist Mike Mitchell, and a sixth-scale action figure of legendary director Alfred Hitchcock.

If the first wave of toys is successful, Ishmael wants to be versatile with its projects, going from something like Disney to possibly Game of Thrones and then on to a horror franchise — he has a wish list of stuff, including Batman: The Animated Series from the ’90s, that he feels have potential.
