Re: Another Re-colored Mondo Vest

Next time I'm at the Alamo Drafthouse Theater that houses Mondotees, I'll check into this to see what happened to the vests.

Re: Enter the Dragon to get remake

I can't get excited about this.  Name one recent remake that has been anywhere near as good as the original.  This movie has already been "re-made" to death by every tournament styled fight-flick to come out sence.  Anybody remember Bloodsport?  Both Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter owe a lot too ET...

Re: Another Re-colored Mondo Vest

You sure?  I just checked ebay and there are two mondo vests on sale right now.  Just search "warriors vest".

Re: Cleons/Riffs Fighing Skills

Yeah, man. Jim Kelly is one of the most underapreciated icons of martial arts cinema.  Someone tracked him down back in the late 90's and did an interview - if I remember right, he's a big tennis player now. Kelly really opended a lot of brothers up to martial arts.  Up until Taimak in the Last Drag...

Re: Cleons/Riffs Fighing Skills

I always thought the Riffs gang was a homage to the ghetto martial arts school featured in Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon.  In ETD, the "Williams" character played by Jim Kelly is shown in a flashback sequence visiting the martial arts school he trained in.  It looks like an urban, underground space t...

Word.  I just came off a ban and have to admit I missed this joint.  Watch your step boppers.

Re: 1979 or Future

AHHH - Escape from NY.  Another film I try to make a point to watch at least once or twice a year.  For some reason the depiction of the future in this movie still holds up, even though the SFX are dated now.  Probably because the film is mostly confined to the prison Island of Manhattan and the mak...

Warriors reference on Scrubs

About 10 times funnier if you are familiar with this show but I figured folks who haven't seen this yet would enjoy.

Re: Another Re-colored Mondo Vest

Sorry for the delayed response boppers. Got banned about 4 days ago for a "disrespectful" remark in the shout box.  Had to do my time. I'm 5'8" and weigh about 180lbs.  I went to the Mondotees store and tried on every vest from small to large (though they probably carry XL and XXL).  The small looke...

Re: comic con 07 in sandiego

Lucky for them  :badgrin: Seriously though, too bad you didn't find them - would have made for some good photo ops.

If I was still in  the big CA, I'd have rolled with you.

Re: Mondo tees out of vest patches

Out of patches on thier site?  I was just in their Austin store a few weeks ago and they had what looked like quite a few.  I'm sure they sell well cause the rock - but this seems like something they would keep in stock.  You might want to try calling them if you haven't already.

Re: Is Ajax dead?

Couldn't agree with you more Nite Run. I think Swan and Mercy are the only characters who really undergo transformation over the course of the film.  The rest of the remaining 7 delegates still seem too imature to realize they're on a path to nowhere.  It would be sad to find out that Swan took over...

So how was the Con SDVermin?  Anybody recognize your colors?  I just moved from LA to Austin this year and I'll miss being able to hit this event.

Re: NEW WARRIORS FIGURES in 08!

Nice - these are an improvement on the mezco line in terms of proportion.  The addition of real clothing is cool but likely to jack the price up quite a bit.  I wish they did these at 12" so it would be easier to make customs figures that match down the road.

Re: Another Re-colored Mondo Vest

If cost is keeping you from a vest of your own, you should think about hooking one up on the cheap like I did for my boys.  There are lots of cheap vests on Ebay (most under $20.00) and you can score patches for around $40.00 from Mondotees.  I made the patches that are on my kids vests and in the e...
