Join the Starfleet Elite! Star Trek: Space Seed By M. Ansin On Sale Now!

UPDATE: Both the regular and variant sold out in a little over an hour. Thanks for making this a very successful first release in our STAR TREK series of posters.

Mondo is proud to announce a new partnership with CBS and the beginning of a new poster series featuring the universe of STAR TREK. CBS has literally given us the keys to the TREK kingdom and we have free reign to do what we like with the world Gene Roddenberry created over 40 years ago. We felt that the first poster in the series had to feature one of the coolest villains ever to grace the TV or silver screen, Khan, played by the late Ricardo Montalban. We asked Martin Ansin to design the first poster and we think this is truly one of his best:

Poster by Martin Ansin. 24″x 36″ screen print w/ metallic ink. Hand numbered. Printed by D&L Screen Printing. Edition of 300. Click HERE to buy.

Martin put a lot of time and energy into this print and we asked him to give a little insight into what he was thinking as he designed the poster:

“I wanted the poster to work in a rational way, almost like a chart; many bits of information are shown as graphic elements…

In there you may find several references to the Space Seed episode: modified DNA, a shadowy hand that could take over the globe, the universe or just a small planet (spoiler!), some data sets, and even Castor and Pollux (the Gemini constellation), a tip by Prof. Rob Jones; as the original writers meant for Khan to be a reflection of Kirk, like Castor and Pollux, they too are connected through their attributes as leaders.”

We also have a very special wood variant for sale with only 35 copies made. Click HERE to grab one.

We will also have a very limited amount of the regular and variant poster for sale at the Mondo brick and mortar store starting at 5pm, so if you couldn’t get one during the online sale, you’ll have a second chance at 5pm.

    Good job. I was lucky enough to get one.

    Looking forward to the next release. Do you plan on doing posters with other crew like Picard or are you only exploring Kirk ?

    Thanks.

    These are on Ebay now for like 200 bucks. Disgusting.

    Also…it’s suggested I subscribe to your blog to get updates on future release, but it’s not clear where I go to subscribe to your blog.
