The Iron Giant, Warner Bros.

Animation’s beloved movie about a boy and his robot friend, is getting a new capsule collection at Mondo.

The pins and T-shirt join Mondo’s existing The Iron Giant collection, which currently includes hand-glazed ceramic Tiki mugs and a soft vinyl figure of the gentle robot, as well as a limited-edition vinyl copy of the film’s score.

In the first installment of her Beloved Animated Failures column, Polygon’s Petrana Radulovic celebrated The Iron Giant, which was a box office flop but found a devoted home video audience.

She writes: After the positive press for The Iron Giant — and the many critical observations about the blatant lack of marketing — Warner Media sought to rectify its error, and the company mounted a much more significant campaign for the home-video release of The Iron Giant, bringing it to a wider audience.
