If you’re looking for a subtle way to signal your allegiance to Apocalypse, who will undoubtedly be a benevolent, ruler, these X-Men: The Four Horsemen lapel pins may just do the trick.

Like Mondo’s Captain America: Civil War set before them, these Tom Whalen-designed 1-inch enamel pins have a decidedly retro feel, with Archangel, Magneto, Psylocke and Storm look as if they were borrowed from the corner box of a late-1980s X-Men cover.

mousers10

As fantastic-looking as Mondo’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1/6th-scale action figures are, they’ve been missing something: enemies. However, that changes with the introduction of the Mousers.

Longtime fans of the franchise will recall that the Mousers were introduced by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird as the robotic creations of Dr. Baxter Stockman, intended to seek out and destroy sewer rats. However, his assistant April O’Neill discovers that the bipedal mechanical terrors are actually being used to tunnel into banks and clean out their vaults.

Mondo, which earlier this year celebrated Mike Mignola’s signature creation with a “First Hellboy” statue, has now introduced a 1/6th-scale baby Hellboy action figure.

Developed with Mignola himself, the figure boasts six points of articulation and, as Mondo says, “the cutest lil face Hell ever spawned.” Standing (or, rather, crouching) about 4 inches tall, the figure is available in two varieties: the $37 regular version, and the $40 Mondo exclusive, which comes with a removable Crown of the Apocalypse.

bizarro1-social

Following its release of the Superman: The Animated Series die-cut vinyl, Mondo has decided to give the Man of Steel’s opposite number some time in the spotlight. Or is that spot-dark? Low-light? Dang it, I can never get the hang of Bizarro-speak.

In any event, the art boutique has announced the Bizarro Superman: The Animated Series single, cut in the shape of the character’s backward-“S” emblem. The purple vinyl features Shirley Walker’s theme music, just like the previous release, but with a twist: The record plays from the inner-most groove out. So, yeah, Bizarro.

mondo-batgirl-social

It turns out the announcement of the Batman: The Animated Series vinyl box set was only the beginning of Mondo’s Bat-bonanza.

The collectibles boutique has also unveiled a Batgirl poster by Gianmarco Magnani, featuring the late Yvonne Craig from the 1966 Batman TV series, and a Batman Begins print by Patrick Leger.
