Mondo Iron Giant Toy 2

The next few days are going to be filled with more “Cool Stuff” posts than usual because of the awesome items hitting the floor at San Diego Comic-Con. You’ve probably already seen this Jurassic World poster, Marvel’s cool hoodies and more, but we’ve yet to hear much from Mondo. That’s going to change. At the convention they’re finally revealing something that has been teased for a few months. The company is getting into toys.

Starting later this year, Mondo will begin releasing officially licensed toys based on popular properties. They’re kicking it off with an official license for The Iron Giant (a property that has been something that has been illusive to collectors for years) as well as some new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stuff as well as Alfred Hitchcock.

Dark Knight Tumbler Lego 1

Outside of Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning performance, arguably the most iconic addition to the Batman universe thanks to Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight Trilogy was the Tumbler. The way Nolan created a functional, realistic Batmobile and continued to evolve it over the course of three films was just beyond cool. It was one of those things fans and non-fans alike wanted to own when they walked out of the movie. And while The Dark Knight Tumbler has been available in various different ways, it’s finally getting an Ultimate Collector’s Edition Lego.

Below, see images of the Ultimate Collectors Edition Dark Knight Tumbler Lego. Read More »

Alex Ross Planet of the Apes Cataclysm header

If Matt Reeves has done his job right with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and we think he has, the film will drive people back to the original series. Viewers should be so curious about what comes next that the new film will turn people on to not only the 1968 original, but its sequels as well. Artist Alex Ross is doing that, too. He’s releasing four brand new Planet of the Apes posters based on covers of the Boom Studios Comic Planet of the Apes: Cataclysm. They’ll first be available at San Diego Comic-Con via Acme Archives. Check out the Alex Ross Planet of the Apes posters below. Read More »

Marvel Comic Con Exclusives 11

Attempting to cover the full scope of exclusive merchandise available at San Diego Comic-Con is thankless work. Nearly every single one of the hundreds of booths offers a piece of merchandise exclusive to the Con, in hopes of bringing in attendees. Some of those exclusives, however, stand above the rest. We’ll surely focus on more of those in the coming days leading up to the convention, but here’s the first batch of awesomeness courtesy of Marvel.

Marvel will have a ton of amazing exclusive merchandise at their booth, including awesome T-shirts related to Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and some awesome hoodies related to Star Lord, The Winter Soldier, Rocket Raccoon, Captain America and more.

Rob Jones Grief header

While you might not know the name Rob Jones you know his work. I guarantee it. Jones is a creative director for Mondo, which means he works with each and every artist who releases a poster and helps them achieve the best vision imaginable. While a piece by Tyler Stout or Olly Moss was done by them, Jones helped steer them in a specific direction from a very early stage. You could say every Mondo poster is born of Jones’ DNA.

In addition to that, Jones is quite the accomplished artist himself. He’s done dozens of famous album covers, gig posters, movie posters and in 2011 won an Grammy for designing a box set for The White Stripes. Later this week, he’s presenting an ambitious new solo show called “Grief,” comprised of 100 self portraits offering different takes on Charlie Brown. Yes, from the Peanuts Charlie Brown. It open July 17 at Galerie F in Chicago, Illinois.

Below, we’ve got several exclusive, pop culture inspired pieces from the show including detailed descriptions of the personal interpretations behind each from Jones himself. It’s a funny, but sometimes frightening, window into one of the most influential eyes in pop culture art today. Read More »
