Today, Mondo's unveiling the third wing in its ever-expanding Kubrick Collection, which kicked off earlier this year with a series of officially licensed t-shirts, hoodies and collectible pins based on A Clockwork Orange and 2001: A Space Odyssey (the fourth and final part of the Collection, based on The Shining, will arrive later this year).
As expected, what they've got on offer is exceptionally cool. Let's take a look!
"Any major malfunctions aside, here’s something all Kubrick fans can embrace: Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, are proud to announce that their year-long homage to filmmaker Stanley Kubrick continues with a line of officially licensed merchandise celebrating the auteur’s shattering Vietnam War film Full Metal Jacket.
The exclusive Full Metal Jacket apparel collection includes three leatherneck-approved T-shirt designs and a hoodie, all pulling from the film’s iconic characters, quotes, bold title treatment. The collection is available for a limited time at drafthouse.com/kubrick beginning today."
“Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket is a harrowing exploration of the horrors of the contemporary war machine. An all too real vision of a world gone completely mad,” said Jay Shaw, Mondo Brand Director. “Matthew Modine’s ‘Private Joker’ perfectly exemplifies the artifice of peace by way of violence. Kubrick’s Vietnam-era masterpiece is as relevant and gut-wrenching today as it was 30 years ago.”
"This apparel collection for Full Metal Jacket is the third release in a new line from Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo celebrating the masterworks of Stanley Kubrick. This line of officially licensed apparel from Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, celebrates one of the greatest directors of all time with collections that have honored A Clockwork Orange and 2001: A Space Odyssey. It concludes this November with The Shining."
In addition to these awesome shirts and hoodies, Mondo will also be selling a brand-new enamel pin, one which be instantly recognizable to anyone familiar with Full Metal Jacket. Check this out:
All of the above can be found right now over at Mondo's Kubrick Collection page, where you can still find the crew's previous Kubrick Collection gear - shirts and pins celebrating A Clockwork Orange and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
In the meantime: which of the above do you think you'll be going after? That hoodie's got my name all over it, but I think I might also pick up one of those pins (somehow, this writer has found himself collecting pins lately, just another in a long line of collecting impulses that will one day turn me into a full-blown hoarder).
How 'bout you, Private Pyle?
