    Didn't see this tidbit mentioned in any of the SDCC coverage, but Apparently Biff Bang Pow is doing a new line of Venture Bros. Action figures. I've only been able to find this one picture and zero info on prices or dates.

    Ohhhhhhh.

    Looks better than the MEGO-like ones at least. Might have to get these.

    I think I'll go for a Monarch theme and just get the Monarch, Dr. Girlfriend and some Henchmen. ;)

    Not bad. Better then the Megos to me. I would probably pick up the family and Brock.

    If these get made, there goes all my money. Why on Earth is the Monarch in the second series? He should be front and center in the first wave!

    It would suck like hell, if those figures never got released. I hated those retro looking ones that came out a while ago. These ones are miles better (even though Brock doesn't seem to have his pack of smokes). It's so frustrating wanting figs from adult swim shows. They either never do all the characters from a show, don't make them to a decent standard *cough* metalocalypse *cough* or don't make them at all!

    Shit yeah, Doctor Orpheus needs to have a duel with my MU Doctor Strange, and The Monarch vs. Loki!

    I'd rather have Dr. Girlfriend in her pink Jackie O outfit though.

    That's because the mego-style ones suck.

    I like the Mego style for certain things - like the "retro" DC/Marvel & Star Trek figures, but I think they went overboard with the idea when they started to do things like VB, Anthrax and Lost (seriously, WTF?)

    I hope this line can find a home somewhere, even though the odds seem stacked heavily against it.

    Only interested in H.E.L.P.eR. (pre eyebot style) but sadly since he's wave 3 looks like he's definitely not coming out.
