Mondo San Diego Comic-Con 2017 Exclusives [UPDATE July 18]

The popular licensed print company Mondo has begun announcing its plans for San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Its sought-after limited posters and amazing vinyl records generally create hysteria among fans and collectors when the “drops” (when the posters are available for purchase) are announced.

You can find Mondo at Booth #835 on the show floor. As always, Mondo will presumably tweet out when the items are available, so plan to keep them on your social media alerts, and to book it.

For now, let’s take a look at what Mondo is bringing to SDCC:

[UPDATE July 18]

Mondo’s final San Diego Comic-Con announcements include everything from Legion to Guardians of the Galaxy, as revealed by Entertainment Weekly.

Marc Aspinall has created a Legion poster, which will be available at the Mondo booth. A variant of the poster will also be available at the Fox booth, when you pre-order season one on Blu-Ray or DVD.

You’re really going to want to pick-up this Matt Taylor Guardians of the Galaxy poster.

Jock has created a Hot Fuzz poster which will be available at SDCC, with a variant also dropping on Mondo’s site.

Additionally, there will be a vinyl release for Hot Fuzz‘s original score from David Arnold. The $25 vinyl is pressed on 180-gram chocolate cornetto colored vinyl with a chocolate scented insert, and is limited to only 1,000 pieces.

    Still waiting on Mondo to make those He-Man figures previously shown off a couple of years ago at both SDCC and Mondo-con(fair). They looked awesome. Even better than the turtles. I hightly recommend watching Rakka on youtube. It was phenomenal. I just wanted a longer movie. He calls it a webisode series so I hope he is able to keep it up.

  • keeleon

    For anyone who doesn’t know what Rakka is, I urge you to go watch it on Youtube, and then check out Oats Studios other stuff. It’s some of the best Science Fiction that’s ever been put to film.

  • Anthony DeRouen

    “It’s some of the best Science Fiction that’s ever been put to film.” Doubt that.

  • keeleon

    Did you watch it?

  • Akiba4tN8

    Castlevania, Jaws, & Rakka plz!!
    Rakka is hardcore.

  • All three of these posters are amazing.

  • Mike Harris

    The Thing is my all time favorite film, have got to try and get me one of those pins and the board game. Is there something special about this edition of the game? Like is it just premiering here or does it have some sort of con exclusive flair to it?

  • keeleon

    “The Mondo exclusive features artwork by Jock and comes equipped with a Mondo print, enamel pin, and two additional sculpted movers: the Norwegian character and the Palmer Thing.”

  • oreodogvomit

    Rakka and Zygote are pretty damn good.

  • lamberto

    the dark knight print is actually available now through friday 7/21 7PM PT. it’s an open edition.

  • Dan Mitchell

    I dont see price point for The Thing board game. Any guesses?

  • Randy

    I just did. Thought the characters were shallow, got no background on who they were, their lives before the invasion, what they had lost (and thus what they were fighting for), etc. Always talking in deep tones = manufactured seriousness.

  • keeleon

    I actually think Firebase is the “best” even though it’s kind of slow. It has the most interesting premise of the 3, and is the most creative. Rakka is kind of a generic alien invasion story similar to the TV show “Falling Skies”, and Zygote is far too similar to “The Thing”.

    That being said, they’re all fantastic, and I greatly look forward to what they make in the future. I just can’t decide if I want them to expand on these stories, or just make all new ideas. Sometimes the best stories are the ones where not everything is answered.

  • oreodogvomit

    Ha! Thats funny because I had to totally opposite reaction. I thought Firebase was beautiful, but a total mess. It just didn’t make a lot of sense to me. The simplicity of the others worked in their favor while Firebase seemed convoluted, disjointed, and full of meandering, long-winded exposition.

  • Mike Harris

    Was coming here to ask the same actually. Trying to budget my purchases for this year, and this is one of the few I really do want to pick up, but I’m worried it could price me out of some of the other items I’m wanting. I’m guessing the retail version would be around $40 or $50, given similar games, so I’d hope the exclusive would be around the same.
