So I wanted to start this thread to serve as a clearinghouse for all general news, rumors, and speculation for Mondo/Alamo prints & events. I thought this might be a good idea as we frequently discuss this type of stuff in the recent Art Comments or Release discussion threads from their projects. This thread should discuss topics that would be separate from the Mondo Dream Pairups
or the What movie should Tyler Stout do a poster for
This thread would look at topics like "What is going on at the Alamo & will there be prints released in relation to it?" For example, I think I saw Iron Man 2 prints on ebay before the info was released on the Mondo site. I would post that info here.
People with actual ties to Mondo & the Alamo like JustinIshmael & mcnail are invited to drop or leak information here if they wish or if they want to quash speculation on a topic. The same goes for Austin locals who might have any information regarding the prints or events as well.
So just to get us started, here is a link to the first half of 2010 from Mondo- http://blog.mondotees.com/2010/06/01/mo ... ter-recap/
And, in terms of the news and speculation, I'll get that started too.
1- Via Justin Ishmael's Twitter, there is going to be a big event at the store on 6/25. I don't know what it is but I am excited to find out.
I've been wondering if it is related to this - http://www.originalalamo.com/Show.aspx?id=7353
. That event happened a couple of weeks ago and it seems like it would have been something that Mondo would do a print for. Not to mention this was posted on Eric Tan's site a few weeks earlier - http://erictanart.blogspot.com/2010/05/ ... -test.html
2- The Star Trek series is definitely generating a decent amount of interest & I am excited to see what comes next. I really liked the Space Seed print although I thought the variant should have been on something more Trek-appropriate like clear lucite.
One thing that has been released is that there is going to be a variant of an upcoming Mondo release that will drop at Comicon. There has been some speculation that this will involve the next film in the reboot series by JJ Abrams.
The other thing that seems like it is pretty probable is a Wrath of Khan print by Tyler Stout. He is Mondo's most popular artist and Khan is the most popular Star Trek film. Mondo would be crazy not to do one.
Finally, I also wanted to inquire about/gauge interest for certain aspects of how Mondo releases prints? For example, I hate waiting for drops. I would gladly sign up for a Mondo print subscription a la the Dan McCarthy print club. More guaranteed prints from Mondo for me and less individual tube packing for them. I know it would be expensive but Mondo is where I spend most of my print $$$ anyway. Anyone else feel the same way? I doubt a subscription will happen but if there is an overwhelming response, who knows.
