This is one fantastic collectible with incredible detail that will, I’m sure, end up sold out (and I’m also sure Sideshow will make it a limited edition item hence why I’ve included it in the Limited Edition category).

Additionally, if rumors are correct about the next phase of Marvel movies, it may become an even more highly valued collectible if the Planet Hulk story line makes it to the big screen.

Mondo THE BLACK BEETLE poster

Over the weekened Mondo released their limited edition regular version of The Black Beetle poster.

Limited to only 225, this version of the poster was released at HeroesCon 2013.

It measures 24″ x 36″ and is an 11-color screen print of artwork by Francesco Francavilla of Dark Horse Comics. 

Like all Mondo posters this is already becoming a rare collectible, with just one of the posters from HeroesCon available for sale (via a flipper on Ebay) at the link below:

The price being asked is $160. That’s probably a fairly standard ask for a sold out Mondo poster.

However, there is still a chance you can get one of these or its variant (which is a 12-color screen print via a limited run of 110) for a cheaper price when Mondo open the doors to them via their own online shop. That’s going to happen on June 11, 2013 and the price they’re asking for is $55. 

The chances of getting one during the rush when they do release it are low. It will sell out in minutes (if not seconds). But you can try. If you want to try you have to follow Mondo on Twitter for the sale announcement as they’ll be releasing the posters online at a random time and will announce it with a tweet.

You can view more detailed images of Francesco Francavilla’s artwork on the poster over at Mondo’s blog.

Backstory:

The creation of Doctor Henry Pym (Ant-Man), Ultron is the textbook example of good intentions gone horribly wrong. Attempting to create a robot with a sentient mind, Dr. Pym used his own brain patterns as the foundation for Ultron’s programming. While he inherited Pym’s scientific genius, Ultron was unhindered by the binds of a human conscience, and his hatred for his ‘father’ and the rest of humanity manifested itself only moments after his activation.

A ceaseless enemy of the Avengers, Ultron is smart enough to know not to go into the fight alone. Ultron has had some famous team-ups with the Grim Reaper, King Pin, The Red Skull, and even created his own version of the Masters of Evil. Boasting an impressive skill set of superior intellect, superhuman strength, speed, durability, flight, and the power of hypnosis, Ultron is a true force to be reckoned with. He also has a remarkable sense of self-preservation, and keeps a number of spare bodies that can be activated upon his current form’s demise.

Ultron’s goal has changed over the course of his history. Originally content with just destroying humanity, a few bitter losses convinced Ultron that all organic life should be destroyed. After having his consciousness fused with Adam Warlock, his mind was changed yet again. Before being banished from earth, Ultron revealed his hopes to create the ultimate techno-organic life form; an artificial being with all the evolutionary strengths of both technology and humanity, and none of their weaknesses. No matter how often he is destroyed, two things are certain; Ultron always returns, and he always has a plan.

Price is $349.95.
