I jumped up from my seat this morning when our friends over at Dark Hall Mansion sent me this Press Release about one of the greatest giant robots in TV history, Gigantor! You might remember that Dark Hall Mansion was responsible for selling that fantastic “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” Poster By Tom Whalen last October.
From the Press Release: “Dark Hall Mansion, www.DarkHallMansion.com, is thrilled to release its officially licensed print for the coolest of cool, the legend that started it all…GiiiiiiiIIIIIIIIGANTOR!
Or by classic Japanese moniker: Tetsujin 28-go
Artist Laurent Durieux has rendered two extraordinary and completely different prints for a very tight Edition release next week:
Standard: Gigantor: The Lab (Edition of 150)
Variant: Gigantor: Tokyo Night (Edition 75)
All Editions are 18″ x 24″ screen prints, and printed by the good folks at D&L Screenprinting.
And YES there will be metal!! How could there not be with Gigantor?!! But only 10 exclusive T-28 Metal Editions showing each respective artwork available: 10 Gigantor: The Lab + 10 Gigantor: Tokyo Night
Standard Editions $65, Variant $100, T-28 Metals $250
All Editions on sale next Thurs, March 22nd at 9:30 AM PST at Dark Hall Mansion: www.DarkHallMansion.Com“
Now considering how fast that Great Pumpkin poster sold out you better get ready to hit that site and start bidding! To see more of Laurent Durieux’s gorgeous artwork make sure to take the time and visit his Flickr Photostream, after looking through some of his portfolio I really hope he gets a chance to try his hand at illustrating Dave Steven’s The Rocketeer someday!
