Maybe, maybe not.  Obvs it's too early to tell at this time, but Mondo's co-founder is feeling good about their autonomy: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I'll use this example: when Disney was looking to purchase Marvel, there were A LOT of concerns, particularly from Marvel Studios who was still building their brand/company.  There were _many_ meeting with the Disney and Marvel higher-ups, with Disney essentially telling them "we'll put our distributing & marketing juggernaut to work for you, and you keep doing your thing with incredibly minimal parameters."  At this point, over a decade later, I think things have worked out well for all involved.

We have little/no info of the details of this new partnership, and all we have to go on currently are the words of co-founder who seems excited (and expresses that nearly everyone from Mondo is staying on board).  I suspect Funko is a FAR more financially stable entity than Alamo Drafthouse, and this will hopefully be a better situation for Mondo.  Heck, maybe with deeper pockets there will be deeper runs of products and MORE people can be happy here! 
Only time will tell...

deeper runs, if you mean larger print runs, is definitely not what the average Mondo collector wants. Even if you mean like deeper as in like more obscure stuff or larger output that still is a bit opposite of what most print collectors would want. Like a zillion Pops! just like over producing.

People's reaction to this is ridiculous. 
It's a great thing for Mondo and I can't wait to see all the new possibilities that happen due to it.

less relevant to mondo now but I attended the Staten Island Alamo Drafthouse opening this weekend. Just figured I'd share in case anyone was interested:
