Mondo ventures into fear with stellar MAN-THING releases. First up, as they premiered at DesignerCon, is the MAN-THING Designer Vinyl Figure. This figure is incredible and larger than life! Makes me want to create my own 80’s / 90’s TV commercial.

Emerging from the swamp, it’s Marvel’s Man-Thing! This exciting collaboration with famed toy Designer James Groman (Madballs, Kaiju Killer, King Korpse) brings his unique style to full display with this limited edition Man-Thing Soft Vinyl Figure. With 3 Points of articulation, this massive 12 inch tall figure is a sight to behold. James poured so much thought into this sculpture that you can get lost in the details for hours. This figure will be limited to 1000 so pre-order while you can!

I hope all you vinyl Figure And comic book fans out there like what me and the folks at Mondo I’ve put together for you. It was a blast to work on.” – James Groman

” James Groman is a big part of the reason I decided I wanted to make toys. Madballs were my absolute favorite toys when I growing up. When I heard that there was a chance to work with James I was instantly on board. After getting to work with James, I can’t say enough about his talent, generosity and overall great attitude. I feel very lucky to now be able to call one of my heroes my friend. Also, If you don’t know James insane work in the Soft Vinyl/Sofubi world do yourself a favor and do a deep dive. Mind blowing stuff” – Mike Bonnano, Creative Director Toys and Collectibles.
