The doors just opened at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas for the 75 Years of Batman Gallery Show. A full show, officially licensed, celebrating all things revolving around the Caped Crusader. We’ve previously shown you a few beautiful posters from the show, but now that the doors are open we can reveal the rest. They’re beautiful.
Better than that, no matter what Batman is your favorite, it’s represented. There’s 1966 Batman, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Returns, Batman Beyond, Gotham by Gaslight, Year One, and of course plenty of your favorite villains. Below, check out all the posters from the Mondo Batman 75 show. Read More »

The Internet has taught us lots of things. Cats play keyboards, Charlie bit me and fans want Goonies Lego sets. It feels like month after months, you see images of fan made Lego creations based on the 1985 Richard Donner film. One even got 10,000 votes on the Lego Ideas website and could, potentially get made.
While we wait for that to – maybe – happen, you can check out a stunning, detailed, huge Goonies Lego diorama that was at Brickcon 2014. It includes the Walsh house, jail house, Fratelli’s restaurant, and several of the underground passages such as the piano room and more. Check it out below, along with a few new Lego Ideas projects.

We’ve been featuring the Poster Posse on the site for a while now. As you know, they create a whole online art show worth of art for highly anticipated upcoming movies they’re excited about. Past examples include Godzilla, Interstellar, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Pacific Rim. Blurppy has collected a group of great artists for PosterPosse, and we always love seeing their newest creations. Speaking of which, their next digital art show is for Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6, which hits theaters next month. Check out the first and third batch of Big Hero 6 art posters after the jump.

Of all the futuristic 2015 technologies promised in Back to the Future Part II, the one we’re most disappointed hasn’t come to pass is the hoverboard. But there’s still one year until the date Marty McFly is scheduled to land, and Hendo Hover is determined to make hoverboards a reality in time for his arrival.
The company, led by Northern California couple Greg and Jill Henderson, are working hard to create a real, working hoverboard — with some help from Kickstarter, hopefully. Should all go well, the first hoverboards will be produced by October 21, 2015. Hit the jump for more details on the working hoverboard, including how you can buy one for yourself.

The ugly sweater is an art form, a fashion niché now reserved for Eighties sitcoms and kitschy holiday parties. Usually, you find them at Goodwill or other similar stores and the busier or uglier it is, the better. But on rare occasions, you can find them where they’re actually cool. Or at least ironic and Mondo just made two such sweaters. They’ve created ugly knit sweaters for two movies set in the snow: The Coen Brothers’ Fargo and Joe Dante’s Gremlins. Check out the Gremlins and Fargo sweaters below. Read More »
When it comes to modern sci-fi movies, RoboCop has to be one of the best. Part machine, part man, the 1987 film by Paul Verhoeven is a satirical, violent masterpiece. At its center is the gorgeously designed, iconic lead character who returned for two much lesser sequels, and was redesigned for a reboot released earlier this year.
So how did RoboCop come to be? What’s the story behind the silver and chrome character? A new book called RoboCop: The Definitive History hits shelves Tuesday. Written by Calum Waddell, it has all the answers. To celebrate its release, we’ve got a set of amazing RoboCop behind the scenes photos like the one above. Check them out below. Read More »
Have you ever heard of this character Batman? I hear he’s pretty popular. They’ve made a few movies about him, a few TV shows, and apparently a few comic books. 2014 is the 75th anniversary of this incredibly obscure, niche character, which apparently is why the team at Mondo is doing a full gallery show of original art and posters based on him and his gallery of characters.
75 Years of Batman opens Friday October 24 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas and the first batch of art has been revealed. There are some heavy hitters here: Kevin Tong, Tom Whalen, Craig Drake, Phantom City Creative, Alex Pardee, Scott C., Jason Edmiston and this is just the first wave. Check out the Mondo Batman posters below. Read More »
