Mondo Launches a New Line of Marvel Mecha Toys

The good folks at Mondo are always upping the game. And this time, they might have outdone themselves. The company—known for its pop-culture-centric limited-edition posters, vinyl soundtracks, apparel, and collectibles—just launched Marvel Mecha, The collaboration with Marvel combines Manga and Japanese Mecha designs from the ’80s and ’90s with iconic comics characters. First up? Spider-Man.

Mondo spent three years developing the Marvel Mecha toy line. Spider-Man is the first in a planned rollout that will also include Black Panther and Captain America. If you’ve ever wondered what Spider-Man might look like as a 100-foot-tall mecha, now you know. This incredible replica has intricate details and a hefty dose of imagination. We can’t wait to get ahold of one of these figures!

“The Marvel Mecha line of collectibles began with a question, ‘how cool would it be to see Peter Parker pilot a 100-foot robot and fight giant monsters?!” Hector Arce and Michael Bonanno, Mondo Creative Directors of Toys & Collectibles, said in a press release. “We were able to let our imaginations run wild building a mythology around a world where our favorite Marvel heroes could exist as mecha.”

The first two figures in the Marvel Mecha series are a traditional red-and-blue Spider-Man and a black-costume variant. Additionally, Mondo’s Tim Wiesh developed stories for these Marvel Mecha, and wrote original Mangas that accompany each figure. Remy Paul designed the toys, and Jay Kushwara sculpted them.
