After driving fans wild with posters, albums, and more, Mondo is now entering a new arena: toys. The company is going to come out with guns blazing as their first releases will be a 16″ The Iron Giant figure, a 1/6th-scale Alfred Hitchcock action figure, and an adorable “Lil’ Mikey”, a vinyl figure based off Mike Mitchell‘s artwork for Michelangelo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Because Mondo is a by-fans, for-fans enterprise, Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael says they chose The Iron Giant because they love the movie. “It’s not like it’s an anniversary,” says Ishmael. “This could be the year after the movie came out, we would be trying to do this.” According to USA Today, The Iron Giant figure has “30 points of articulation, lights up, has a magnetic ‘S’ from a “Seafood” sign to put on his chest, and has an interchangeable dented head and weaponized arm to make a ‘War’ version of the character.” The figure’s design came straight from the files director Brad Bird used to create The Iron Giant.
