Dark Hall Mansion Announces 2 Special Iron Giant Prints

Dark Hall Mansion is pleased to release the officially licensed Brad Bird “Iron Giant: Signature Edition” print and metal series along with DHM’s Jeff Granito “Iron Giant” limited editions, all on sale this Friday, October 2, 2015!

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Warner Bros Entertainment, will release these special Brad Bird editions in conjunction with “Iron Giant’s” limited in-theater screenings with Fathom Events around the country as well as Warner Bros high definition re-release of the “Iron Giant: Signature Edition” movie. The artwork for these select editions was developed by the Warner Bros artist team and director Brad Bird (“Tomorrowland,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) was instantly taken, personally requesting it be released as a fine art edition. Dark Hall Mansion is honored to have gotten the call from Warner Bros and proud to release two select editions: the Brad Bird Standard 18″ x 24″ edition, hand numbered and beautifully printed on rich paper, and an 18″ x 24″ hand numbered edition printed on metal.

DHM is also pleased to reveal their officially licensed “Iron Giant” limited edition print release by contemporary artist, Jeff Granito. A striking piece that addresses the “Iron Giant’s” duality, one powerfully voiced in Hogarth’s informing his otherworldly friend, “You are who you choose to be,” the piece also addresses humankind’s relationship not only to the “Iron Giant” but to those choices we make for ourself and our world. Artist Jeff Granito beautifully and evocatively encapsulates high science, the pastoral, and those very choices within each of his editions while never forgetting the charm and love that informs the “Iron Giant’s” relationship with Hogarth. Jeff’s Standard edition deftly splits the “Iron Giant’s” dual nature with gorgeous use of color and composition, while his Variant edition deliberately echoes a retro B&W Sci-Fi vibe, and his most select, Jeff’s “Iron Giant” metal edition, has a beautiful and unique color scheme all its own. All Granito “Iron Giant” editions measure 18″ x 24.”

All officially licensed Brad Bird “Iron Giant: Signature Edition” prints and metal editions, as well as Jeff Granito’s “Iron Giant” limited editions go on sale this Friday, Oct 2 at 9:30 AM PST on our dedicated store page here: http://www.darkhallmansionstore.com

MONDO Is Doing Toys!

MONDO is doing toys! The launch of figures for The Iron Giant, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Alfred Hitchcock are Mondo’s first foray into toy collectibles, with the subjects and diversity of design reflecting Mondo’s unique passions. The initial offerings include replicas as well as toys from artist-based designs, which can be previewed at San Diego Comic-Con in Mondo’s booth (#835).

Toys join Mondo’s growing list of pop culture passions in posters, vinyl, gallery events, VHS and apparel. “I am so pumped to announce toys! We’ve been working on this in secrecy for a year and now it’s time to let you guys know about it. We’ll be focusing on existing properties that we love as well as working with artists to bring their own creations to life. This is a new area for us, but I resist the term ‘expansion’ since the goal for Mondo has always been to be a place where artists and designers can work to have their visions realized, whether that’s through posters, gallery shows, vinyl, apparel or now toys,” said Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael.

The Iron Giant

Celebrating its 15th anniversary, The Iron Giant has reaped praise as being among the greatest animated films ever made (recently ranked #7 on Time Out’s 100 Best Animated Movies list) and it was important for Mondo to honor the film with an appropriately stunning collectible.

The Iron Giant Collectible Figure

The 16″ tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.

The Iron Giant Bolt Replica

The Iron Giant Bolt is a life-sized replica of the wayward flashing piece of The Iron Giant, as seen in the film. 6″ in length, with a flashing light feature, and authentic details from the film, it’s the perfect-sized piece to display at home, and to show that there’s always hope in the end.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The First Turtle Vinyl Figure

This vinyl figure is based off of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman’s very first drawing of a “Ninja Turtle,” which formed the basis of the popular comic. Struggling artists Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird came up with the Turtles in November 1983 while living in North Hampton, Massachusetts and the spark came from this drawing, which Eastman drew initially as a joke featuring a bi-pedal turtle with nunchucks and a mask. The figure stands 6″ tall, and features a classic black and white paint design, based on the original art!

Lil Mikey Vinyl Figure

This will be Mondo’s first toy based on a design from an artist that they work with frequently. Mike Mitchell has a series of pop culture characters called “Just Like Us” and this toy is based on his design in that series for Michelangelo. Turtle fans and people of a particular age will note the accuracy of the real TMNT ice cream on a popsicle stick.

The “Lil Mikey” figure reflects Mondo’s goal to have many of its toys based on artist designs in addition to replicas.

“If I had $5 when I was a kid, it was going to be spent on a ninja turtle figure. So much of my childhood was defined by TMNT, I watched every episode, I had the toys, the shirts, the games, the comics. I wish I could say “Lil Mikey” was a dream come true, but I never could have fathomed this happening. I am so extremely excited about this figure, and I can’t wait to show it off at SDCC,” said artist Mike Mitchell.

Hitchcock 1/6 Scale figure

The worlds most famous director is immortalized in this 1/6 scale figure, which features an authentic likeness, his directors chair, clapboard, cigars, as well as props from his most famous films- a butcher knife, a raven, and a seagull! He also features a fine-tailored suit, several interchangeable hands, and a figure stand.

What Is MONDO Planning With The Iron Giant?

Today MONDO posted this cryptic picture and message on Twitter indicating that batteries are included and it’s not a poster for The Iron Giant.

What could it be? Perhaps an action figure or toy? Time will tell and I will post as soon as I find out.
