It’s Good to Be a Geek With This Year’s Holiday Offerings From Mondo

If you’re looking for that interesting geeky gift for your friends or any member of your family, you’re likely to find it at Mondo. This Austin-based company makes posters, soundtracks, toys, apparel, books, games, and collectibles for all sorts of pop culture classics. Mondo recently sent me some of their items that they thought GeekDad readers might enjoy receiving this year. Let’s take a look!

Cobra Kai – Original Soundtrack 3XLP

With 3 seasons under its belt and a 4th season arriving this December, now’s the perfect time to pick up this 3-disc vinyl soundtrack of the first three seasons of Cobra Kai. Music is composed by Leo Birenberg and Zach Robinson, with artist Matt Ryan Tobin providing the artwork for the record sleeves.

This is the 180 Gram Mondo Exclusive with colored vinyl and a bonus cassette tape. This version appears to have sold out on Mondo’s website, but you can still pick up the 180 gram black vinyl version for $50 here.
