Mondo Gets it Together for its New Ramona Flowers Figure [Exclusive]
Last July, Mondo hit San Diego Comic-Con hard with the first looks at a number of all-new toys and statues from its collectibles division. Though the Austin-based art gallery built its reputation on curating original screen prints for films, recent years have seen Mondo expand its horizons to clothing, music and figures. Many of the collectibles on display last year were in their earliest stages, and merely shown to give a glimpse into the future of Mondo's plans.
While figures like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Baby Hellboy have since been announced, many of us have been waiting for the Scott Pilgrim vs The World Ramona Flowers collectible figure to arrive. Today, we can exclusively announce the details and offer the first official images of Mondo's Ramona Flowers collectible figure.
Based on her appearance in the fourth volume of the series, Scott Piglrim Gets it Together, Ramona comes complete with everything she had during her fight with Roxie at the Happy Avocado. In fact, the figure's pose and design is almost ripped right from the page (111 in the original print, 113 in the colored hardcovers), but it was reworked by creator Bryan Lee O'Malley so Mondo could get the proportions just right. The paint app matches Nathan Fairbairn's colors almost exactly, too. There's no chance on questioning just how committed Mondo is to authentically replicating the original art.
This is the first Ramona Flowers figure released, though she's had a few other collectibles released. This figure isn't quite in scale with the Scott Pilgrim action figures from Mezco, from a few years back, but that's okay. Ramona here comes with her own little Scott --- if you happen to snag one of the Mondo exclusive versions. While he's not quite a full figure, the little Scott head peeking out from Ramona's purse is still perfectly punchable.
Ramona will also come with her more infamous hammer weapon, though its appearance comes much earlier in the books. Ramona does use it against Roxie in the film adaptation however, so there is some tangential relationship between the two moments. Having the option to pose her with either is nice though, and gives Ramona bit for flexibility on display.
"Ramona Flowers is the type of girl that everyone either wants in their life, or wants to actually be," said Mondo's Brock Otterbacher, Creative Director of Toys/Collectibles. "And who wouldn't? She's cute, cool, and can travel through sub space! The Ramona Flowers Collectible Figure has been a long time coming, and we couldn't be more excited to finally get her out in front of the world. Thankfully you don't have to fight any evil exes to get her!”
