For those of you looking forward to the BifBangPow! 3 3/4" figures revealed at Comic-Con be wary that they are apparently not fully approved yet. Hopefully the outlook is good, but fellow Venture fansite Venture Bros. Blog has an interview with BBP honcho Jason Lenzi where he reveals the following:
Now, as excited as everybody is and I donâ€™t mean to pee in anybodyâ€™s internet cornflakes, these are not green lit. We are not definitely going to make these. It all depends on audience interest and cost. With this scale, we are dealing with a different material and we would be doing everything from scratch. Each part of the figure has to have itâ€™s own laser cut mold and it can get very costly. So itâ€™s a question of whether thereâ€™s enough support from the fans to make the minimum needed.So if you want to get your hands on those figures, let them know how excited you are! Also the interview covers many more toy-line type things and you should check it out.
Don't: Try to score spoilers during Comic-Con panels.
"All questions about what will happen in the show will be answered in the show" is a phrase that Doc Hammer repeated in various ways throughout Friday's panel. They won't tell you what will happen with S.P.H.I.N.X. or the Monarch and Doctor Girlfriend. Don't ask.

If the Mego-style Venture Bros. action figures weren't your thing then you may be happy to know that BifBangPow! is apparently working on some smaller, more traditional action figures. Comic-Con's preview night was today, so most booths were open and long-time Venture fan Chandra Free snapped a photo of these and tweeted it. I'll be at Comic-Con starting Friday and I'll be sure to get more photos of these (plus I'm sure many others will do so before me on Thursday) but for those of you holding out hope, worry no longer!
