MONDO UNVEILS PLANS FOR COMIC-CON 2013
July 10, 2013

New Prints for “Pacific Rim” & Artwork from Martin Ansin, Olly Moss, Drew Struzan and more!

 

Austin, TX— Wednesday, July 9, 2013 — Mondo is excited to announce that it will return to San Diego Comic-Con 2013 with incredible new prints, including three colossal pieces of giant monster crushing artwork to celebrate the release Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’Pacific Rim from director Guillermo del Toro on July 12. The Mondo booth will be set up on the main conference floor in booth #936 throughout SDCC, Wednesday July 17 through Sunday July 21. Additionally, new prints from celebrated artists Martin Ansin, Olly Moss and Drew Struzan will be available for presale on Friday, July 12.

“Mondo has always been instrumental in cementing world creation in pop culture- these posters by Ash Thorp and Kevin Tong and Vania Zouravliov capture perfectly the wild, gleeful spirit of Pacific Rim – here’s to a mad world of Mecha and Kaiju!!” said director Guillermo del Toro.

“I love monsters. I love robots. I love Guillermo del Toro. When he asked us to do posters for a movie he was directing with both, how could we say no? GDT wasn’t a bystander in the process, though. As he did in our previous director’s series, he helped hand pick the artist and gave notes on the designs. We’re all very proud to have worked on this project with him,” said Justin Ishmael CEO of Mondo.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
