At booth #835, at San Diego Comic Con, Mondo will be unveiling their new toy line, which features Alfred Hitchcock, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and The Iron Giant. In a recent press release, they gave us a look at one we can all see at SDCC this week.

The Iron Giant is 15 years old and to celebrate, Mondo is releasing a collectible action figure of the titular character.

The 16" tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable "S" to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the "War" version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.

In addition, Mondo is also releasing a life-sized bolt replica from the film, a piece fans will be able to display on their mantle or in a bookcase.

The Iron Giant Bolt is a life-sized replica of the wayward flashing piece of The Iron Giant, as seen in the film. 6" in length, with a flashing light feature, and authentic details from the film, it's the perfect-sized piece to display at home, and to show that there's always hope in the end.

Check out some other pictures of the 16" tall figure below.

Mondo is also doing a figure based off of one of the most popular members of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Michelangelo. The first figure is based off of Eastman's very first drawing of a Ninja Turtle, which eventually became the comic book. The second figure (pictured to the right) is based off of artist Mike Mitchell's design.

This will be Mondo's first toy based on a design from an artist that they work with frequently. Mike Mitchell has a series of pop culture characters called "Just Like Us" and this toy is based on his design in that series for Michelangelo. Turtle fans and people of a particular age will note the accuracy of the real TMNT ice cream on a popsicle stick.

Finally, there will be a 1/6th scale Alfred Hitchcock action figure which features an authentic likeness, his directors chair, clapboard, cigars, as well as props from his most famous films- a butcher knife, a raven, and a seagull. He also features a fine-tailored suit, several interchangeable hands, and a figure stand.

You'll be able to check all these out at San Diego Comic Con this week at the Mondo booth (#835).

It's always interesting when a company treads new waters. I like the Turtles toys, because those ice cream bars were like the entirety of my childhood.

@longbowhunter: Yeah, they were pretty bad tasting. They always made the ice cream portion around them kind of sour. But for some reason I still loved them!

Iron Giant is one of my favorite, if not my favorite, movies. I must get that giant toy. Will it be for sale at Comic Con? And if so, for how much? If not, when? WHEN?! @inferiorego YOU MUST TELL ME!
