Mondo Announces SDCC 2013 Exclusives and Details [UPDATE With Pre-Sell Info]

In Exclusives by Kerry Dixon4 Comments

The popular licensed print company Mondo has announced its plans for SDCC 2013. Its sought-after limited posters generally create hysteria among fans and collectors when the “drops” (when the posters are available for purchase) are announced via Twitter, but they’ll be doing things a little differently this year, to the benefit of attendees.

First, they’ve announced they are doing a pre-sell on its three announced SDCC exclusives posters. Attendees will be able to purchase only via the Mondo Online Shop on Friday July 12. To be clear, these will only be available for pre-sell, not for purchase at its booth during Comic-Con.

Second, pick up will occur in Sails Pavilion and will be accompanied by signings with its respective artists. So, not only will you get a beautiful, limited print, but you’ll also get it signed as well.

Third, there will be other releases at its booth throughout Comic-Con, but the drops won’t be tweeted like they are normally, due to safety concerns. It seems like rather they will be announcing through media outlets throughout the weekend:

Safety is a huge concern to us and SDCC and we want everyone to be in one piece at the end. Nobody needs a broken bone to show that they’re a fan, so we’re going to have a daily schedule for you guys to check out showing times of releases. We won’t tell you what’s going to be released, but we think you’ll be happy with our releases this year. Also, a lot of media is asking to cover our stuff, so keep an eye online. I’m sure something will pop up before we can show you in line.

[UPDATE 2] Per the Mondo newsletter, here are the details of today’s pre-sell.

The only way to get to these signings is to buy the posters in advance. They will NOT be available for purchase at the actual event.

NOTE: This sale is for San Diego Comic-Con badge holders ONLY. These posters will not ship, and are only available for pick up at the convention on the days of the signings (CONAN on Thursday, DARK TOWER on Friday, SPIRITED AWAY and HOWL’S on Saturday). Please do not buy these if you will not be available to pick up the poster yourself with order confirmation and valid ID displaying the same name. There are absolutely NO REFUNDS and NO EXCEPTIONS. For a thorough explanation of the rules and fine-print, as well as an FAQ list, please read our blog HERE.

Please follow us on Twitter for the on sale announcement(s). These pre-orders will be available online at a random time on Friday, July 12th. These will be released at a random time tomorrow, individually, in intervals rather than all at the same time.
