Pop culture lifestyle brand, Funko has acquired Mondo, a company which specialises in vinyl records, posters, soundtracks, toys, apparel, books, games and other collectables.
Mondo – which was founded in 2001 and was previously a subsidiary of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – is best known for its limited edition vinyl records and screen-printed posters, which focus on bringing art back to music and cinema through collaborations with acclaimed artists.
“Mondo’s devoted fan base and high-end pop culture collectables make it the perfect complement to Funko’s current portfolio of brands,” commented Andrew Perlmutter, ceo of Funko. “By leveraging our international distribution and licensing network, we feel well positioned to expedite the growth of the Mondo brand.
“It’s an exciting opportunity to couple Mondo’s already stellar product assortment and aesthetic with Funko’s massive property library.”
