Mondo To Release Labyrinth Poster By Laurent Durieux & Enamel Pins By DKNG On May 18, 2017

Tomorrow Mondo is celebrating one of their favorite films of the ’80s, Labyrinth, with a poster by the inimitable Laurent Durieux and new enamel pins from DKNG.

Absolutely brimming with creativity and innovative puppetry and creature effects, Jim Henson’s 1986 fantasy film tells the story of Sarah (played by Jennifer Connelly) as she journeys into a dreamlike world inhabited by all sorts of memorable characters and puzzles to retrieve her baby brother from David Bowie’s iconic Jareth, the Goblin King. Laurent Durieux has done a beautiful job capturing the magic and insane variety of creatures born of the film portrayed as various toys positioned around Sarah’s desk.

Mondo will also have beautifully designed enamel pins by DKNG featuring Sir Didymus on Ambrosius, a Fireys and his detachable head, and the Worm (‘ello!).

Please follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement. These posters and pins will be available online at a random time on Thursday, May 18th at mondotees.com.

Mondo Gallery is thrilled to announce its first show of 2017, “Mondo x Acme Archives Present: SWxMM,” featuring celebrated artist Mike Mitchell’s brand new character portraits of some of the most beloved heroes and villains in the Star Wars universe. Rebel scum, scruffy nerf herders, Sith Lords, golden rods, laser brains, and more will be on display with Mitchell’s dignified and iconic portrait treatment. In addition to new prints, all of Mitchell’s previously released Star Wars character portraits will be on display with a very limited number of each available for purchase, including the very first portrait released in the series with Acme Archives, “Red 5.”  The show will kick off with an opening reception, open to the public, on Friday, March 10 from 7pm to 10pm and will run during regular hours until Monday, March 13. Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX.

After first partnering with Acme Archives in 2016 to debut Star Wars character portraits, from the classic Luke Skywalker in X-Wing flight gear to new heroic favorites like The Force Awakens’ Rey, Mondo and Acme Archives are excited to once again invite fans to journey to a galaxy far, far away.

“I have a particular and unyielding love for the designs in Star Wars, and I’m so stoked that I got to spend a year picking out my favorite characters and bringing them to life in my own way,” said Mike Mitchell.

“Over the past year, Mike’s Star Wars art print series has become something really special. As with all of Mike’s work, the pieces are even more powerful when shown together. We are excited to show the entire collection in one space, plus a handful of new surprises. If you’re a fan of the Star Wars universe, you don’t want to miss this one,” said Mondo Co-Founder/Creative Director Mitch Putnam.

To coincide with their first gallery event of the year, the full Mondo team will participate in its very first Reddit AMA on Tuesday, March 7 to discuss the show, additional plans for 2017, and well… anything! Follow Mondo’s social media channels for more details on timing.

Project Raygun & Mondo Present The Thing: Infection At Outpost 31 Game

outpost_31_exterior_1024x1024

Mondo just announced a new partnership with Project Raygun, USAopoly’s brand new initiative focused on combining iconic properties with visionary art and design.

“The synergy between Mondo and Project Raygun was immediate, both driven by zeal and a deep-rooted appreciation of timeless and relevant pop culture,” explains VP of Project Raygun, Mike Gonzales.

“When Project Raygun started talking about tapping into fan’s passion and nostalgia for iconic properties and bringing them to life, it was clear that Mondo was the perfect fit to help us deliver the ultimate experience to the gaming and collector community,” continued John Davis, USAopoly and Project Raygun’s President and CEO.

Our first collaboration will center around John Carpenter’s 1982 sci-fi horror thriller, The Thing. In the new signature board game, titled Infection At Outpost 31, the tension and mystery of The Thing is recreated as players race to discover who among them are infected in the hidden identity game play engine. We recruited one of our favorite artists and package designers, Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative, to handle art duties.

“When we set out to create the first licensed Mondo board game the biggest question was; what film property would we go after? So many of the films we celebrate at Mondo would be an absolute blast in game form,” explained Jay Shaw, Mondo Brand Director. “As soon as John Carpenter’s suspense masterpiece, The Thing was mentioned it very quickly became our top choice,” Shaw noted.

“The next step was to figure out how to actually make a game. We all love playing them, but none of us had designed one before. Game mechanics are an incredibly complicated art form and we didn’t want to enter this space unless we were going to get it right. Luckily our dear friends at Project Raygun were completely up to the challenge. They’ve built an incredibly challenging fast paced game of paranoia that transports players directly into the film,” Shaw continued.

USAopoly, Inc. and Project Raygun will be at Toy Fair in New York City, February 18-21. The division’s inaugural product line is scheduled for release starting Fall 2017.
