Sad, but true. Agreed.
If they keep outputting well made work, how is that irrelevant? I feel like some people would complain if they always output bladerunner, star wars, ghibli, and other more 'popular' source inspired pieces.

Yup. I've got friends who couldn't be less interested in the poster collecting game, but are all over figurines and the like.

Toys are a natural progression I am ok with and I'll likely pick up a few. Smart move that will grow the brand.

Wanting to line Target shelves.................. :/

Can't wait for all the "art print" toys when they run out of likeness rights.

Oh, I don't know, maybe the millions of TMNT fans out there? Mondo's not looking to cater to the same few thousand people.

Not directed at you Soam (more of a general statement), but, If you don't like, don't buy. Don't see what all the whining is about.

I will be going for that Mikey figurine for sure.

Then again, I buy tons of LEGO on a regular basis... :D

Between the not-my-cup-o-tea product expansions and lack of exciting online drops, it has become easier to ween myself off the poster Mondo teat.
