Mondo Unveils Thier First Toys…
Mondo is diving head first into the realm of making toys. The launch of figures for The Iron Giant, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Alfred Hitchcock are Mondo's first foray into toy collectibles. These can be previewed at San Diego Comic Con at Mondo's Booth (#835).
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'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.
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.
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.
