SDCC 2015: Mondo's 1:6th Scale Masters Of The Universe Figures

This weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, you can run right over to the Mondo Booth (#835 ) and see their 1:6th scale Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures...their insane 16 inch Godzilla statue based on their Phantom City Creative designed preview poster for the film...and maybe a Hellboy...if you're lucky....but what you won't see are the seeeeeekret things the crew is keeping hidden for their own MONDOCON!! This October, fans of awesome movies and killer collectibles will descend on a different kind of con, and there, their eyes will drink in a new 1:6th scale line of action figures based on the hulking He-Man and his Masters of the Universe!

When translating the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mondo took a bit from the original Mirage Comic art, a bit from the original Playmates toy line based on the cartoon series, and threw in their own artistic touches for a look that is instantly recognizable and extremely appealing. Now, when tackling Masters of the Universe, they've got a similar plan of attack. Creative Director-Toys/Collectibles Brock Otterbacher explains "The idea is to take the basic designs of the original figures, some of the art from the original mini comics and packaging,  add a bit of realism to them, along with a bit of our own tastes, and create a series of high-end figures that fans like us would be stoked to have. Designed by Dave Rapoza. Sculpted by Ramirez Studios. EPIC."

The line kicks off with He-Man and Skeletor (naturally), who set the template for all the characters that follow, design wise. Here's a teaser of what's to come...

MondoCon takes place October 3-4th in Austin, TX. Hit up for more info.
