The company has announced that they’re planning to release their first board game and it is based on one of the most beloved genre films of all time, John Carpenter’s 1982 classic, The Thing.
But speaking as someone with walls covered with Mondo prints and two massive shelves of board games, this is also the kind of announcement that makes me stroke my chin and go “Hmmm.”

Now that it’s December, there’s no better time to get Gremlins out for a little holiday viewing. It’s not usually a big part of the array of holiday movies that hit TV like A Christmas Story, Elf, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and so on, but it’s an outstanding Christmas movie for those who don’t need all the faux holiday cheer and would rather see little monsters wreak havoc on a small town.
In honor of Gremlins, the folks over at Mondo have released a couple new collectible prints from Matt Ryan Tobin and Glen Brogan. The two prints pay tribute to both Gremlins and the wacky, unabashed sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch, and they’re both outstanding. Plus, there’s a batch of Gremlins enamel pins you can add to your collection.
