Mondo’s ALIENS Tiki Mugs Are The Coolest Thing Ever

You have got to see these things.

Folks, I've been covering Mondo drops for going on five years now, and in that time I have seen some truly incredible things: instant classic posters, beautifully-designed vinyl reissues, top-shelf collectible toys, festive Gremlins sweaters ... hell, I've even seen Mondo release their very own carpets

I thought I had seen it all. And then I saw these incredible Aliens Tiki Mugs.

They are, quite possibly, my favorite product Mondo has ever released. Here's what they look like (be sure to stay tuned after the photos for information on where and when you can get 'em).

How friggin' amazing are these things? I want a complete set, and I want a fancy-pants display case to show them off in. I want the display case to be under lights, and I want a velvet rope erected around the display case so that no one can touch my precious Aliens Tikis. You are allowed to come over and look at them, but if you attempt to touch them I will have you escorted off the premises. 

Ahem. Moving on: all of Mondo's Aliens Tiki Mugs will be available for pre-order at the Mondo site tomorrow afternoon at 12PM CST. Only the "Acid Blood" variant is limited (only 200 are being made), so that's the only one you need to worry about acting quickly on, should you be interested in picking one of these up. The "Hive" edition (my personal favorite) is a timed edition, and will be available for pre-order until 12PM CST on Friday. Please plan accordingly.

Tomorrow, I'll have an interview with Mondo's Creative Director, Brock Otterbacher, who's got a ton of process photos and behind the scenes stories to tell about the creation of these incredibly kick-ass mugs. Stop by the Mondo website tomorrow afternoon (again, after 12PM CST) to pick up your Tiki mugs, then head back hear to find out how they were made.
