Tom Whalen's "Toy Story" Movie Poster

Not that I'm complaining, but it's almost overwhelming how many posters Mondo is releasing nowadays. Concluding his excellent series of Disney-centric prints, Tom Whalen has created an impressive and jam-packed work of art honoring Pixar's first bona fide hit that's sure to please any fan of Woody, Buzz and their toy box crew.

24" x 36" - Numbered
$50 - Limited to 540

Whalen's clean and immaculately constructed poster perfectly compliments Toy Story's super polished look. And wow, he managed to fit just about every character in this thing. Speaking of, I would have loved to have seen a variant featuring all of the DIY creepy toys! It was Toy Story that featured the doll's head erector set spider, wasn't it? While I haven't been crazy about all of Whalen's Disney stuff, I think this is a damn fine print and some of his best work yet (although his recent Black Keys gig poster may be my all time favorite Whalen). Here's what Tom had to say about his Toy Story artwork (taken from
"My goal here was to capture the awe and wonder that swept all of the toys in Andy's room (with the notable exception of Woody) when Buzz arrived on the scene. At any rate, I think it's only fitting that this poster series ends with the first Pixar film, which unbelievably, was released all the way back in 1995."
Tom Whalen's Toy Story movie poster will be available tomorrow (4/10) through Mondo at a random time. The poster measures 24" x 36", is limited to an edition of 540, and will cost $50. Be sure to follow @MondoNews on Twitter for up-to-the-second release info, although it never hurts to work that F5 muscle. To see more of Whalen's work, head over to and follow @strongstufftom. To infinity and beyond!
