Driven by listening to what kids want, Panda Mony creates new and fun entertainment brands because they believe that each generation deserves stories and products of their own. Modern children deserve something new, not just their parents toys repackaged for the new millennium.
Panda Mony is going to be showing off their action-packed new line, Alter Nation, during NYCC at the Diamond Previews booth. Alter Nation consists of six teenage human-animal hybrids dedicated to protecting humanity from forces that no typical human can defeat. Think X-Men meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in an X-Files universe. Attached are a couple images to give you a taste of the line.
Alter Nation is more than just a toy line – it begins as a high quality toy, and branches out into comic books (which come with each toy collected), animated web-series and more. Panda Mony has partnered with Lil Critter Workshop to develop and create an animated web-series based on the brand and have also partnered with a top-tier publisher to launch the brand’s graphic novel series, with more details to come at NYCC!

Panda Mony is guided by respect for kids and embraces the freedom of childhood. Panda Mony creates new and fun entertainment brands because they believe that each generation of children deserves something of their own.
