Mondo Unveils Tom Whalen's Beautiful Poster for Pixar's 'Toy Story'
There was an awesome run of a small batch of great posters from various artists through Mondo leading up to the release of The Avengers, and the collectible arthouse loves to release special posters in conjunction with certain films hitting theaters. However, sometimes it's their artwork that reaches back decades for new posters that truly impresses and that seems to be the case with Tom Whalen's new poster for Toy Story, a truly stunning piece of work that pays tribute to the toys of Andy's room from the first feature length computer animated film that hit theaters all the way back in 1995 (I know, I can't believe it either). Look!
Here's Mondo's poster for Toy Story from Tom Whalen which goes on sale sometime tomorrow:
As usual, the poster will be available at a random time on May 10th (that's tomorrow), so stay tuned to Mondo's Twitter feed to see when you can buy it. It's a 24×36 print with 540 available for purchase at $50 (and Sideshow Collectibles also has a variant, which you can check out at SlashFilm, that will go on sale at some point). If you're not quick enough to grab one online, you might have a chance at a special outdoor screening at Austin's Park and Pizza through the Alamo Drafthouse. Arcade games, pizza, and miniature golf will be going down before the screening on May 31st and tickets can be purchased right here. Cool, right?

Slow entertainment news day Im guessing. These Mondo, Minimalist, ABCs posters etc is drawing me and my mates from this website. Getting repetitive and dumb.

I know. /Film posts these Mondo threads also. I could be wrong, but they come off as advertising.

I've said this before, and I'll say it again. We don't get any money from Mondo. We just appreciate great artwork celebrating films we love, and there are plenty of people who love seeing these posters, otherwise Mondo wouldn't keep making them and we wouldn't keep posting them. The reason sites like /Film and ourselves post these, and it's because people like them.

That's funny, all the posts so far suggest the opposite.

I personally love seeing these

I keep forgetting that a few comments dictate the opinion of all the readers. My mistake. In that case we should probably listen to the few people who don't like films like The Avengers or The Dark Knight and just disregard those films completely. I don't know what we were thinking.

Looks like the "few" are the one(s) who like them not the other way around. Maybe instead of suggesting you post them because of your readership you should have said, as /film did, that you post them because you guys like them. That would be much more accurate.

It would be different if there was dissension here. Looks pretty unanimous to me.

Honestly, Mondo can trace like nobodies business, even in Illustrator! I was kind of reminded of this guy: http://www.ragnarama.com You can see some of the images bigger here: http://welcometobigcity.blogspot.com His work is a lot better, designs his own typefaces and doesn't trace trace trace. What saddens me about the Mondo posters is that there is obviously a market to sell uninspired movie poster tat, so somewhere, someone is actually buying these heaps of rubbish. I dunno, I like that you put up the artwork posts, but I've never been sold on the Mondo stuff, it's lame. But fair play to them, they are probably making more coin than me.

The first 9000 were cute. It's glorified FAN ART.
