Nerd News: Mattel x Shepard Fairey Uno Deck

Dropping on the Mattel Creations website on 30th July at 9am PT for $20 will be a brand new Uno deck, from their Artiste series which has in the past also featured Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Nina Chanel Abney, so Shepard Fairey is in good company. You might not immediately know his name, but I almost guarantee that you’ve seen his work at some point. Ever see those Andre the giant stickers or posters about? That’s his! of course it features front and center on the packaging for this Uno Deck.

One of the nicest things about it is that it coincides with a mural he has just finished and unveiled at the New England Aquarium in the USA to highlight conservation issues in the ocean – the biggest of which is arguably the issue of plastic. This Uno deck is 100% sustainable paper and nothing else which is part of the plan for Mattel for all of their paper products and packaging for the near future.

I'm a collector of pop culture items, with by far my biggest collection being in excess of 1,200 DVDs (yeah I still stay old school - can't wrap my head around the whole streaming thing yet), as well as various figures and Memorabilia (with most of these being McFarlane Walking Dead 5 inch figures, Funko Pop and Funko Pint Size Heroes, with a few other exceptions too). I'm a massive nerd and giant child at heart so feel free to have a chat about anything toy and movie related. My biggest movie passions are horror by far (especially slasher and zombie), sci fi and to a lesser extent action and comedy.
