This group was formed out of the ashes of the "The Orb Fellowship", but all that remains of the Orb itself are legends and legacy. (Later picked up by a Phantom Limb in a desperate attempt to regain his power.) The Guild was not interested some ancient Tinker Toy; the Guild was interested in power. They had power in their allegiance, and they intended to use it.
The Venture Bros. Fans can now own the first-ever line of action figures from Adult Swim's The Venture Bros., created in conjunction with EMCE Toys, and get their figures signed by The Venture Bros.' creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer at the show! Debuting at Comic-Con will be highly articulated, retro-style figures of Dr Venture, Brock Samson, The Monarch, and Dean Venture, as well as two SDCC Exclusives: Henchman Number 21 and Henchman Number 24. All six 8-inch figures bring sensational detail and authentic fabric clothing, and each captures that distinctive action-comedy mix that's synonymous with the top-rated television series. ($20 each)There will also be a Venture Bros. panel, though the programming schedule for the convention won't be released for another couple of weeks.
There's also a Brock Samson bobblehead for pre-order, but no photos seem to exist for it just yet. Intriguing.
Update (6/19 12:30pm): The back of the packaging has been posted along with the front now, revealing the full set of bobble heads which includes the full cast of expected characters plus a few variants like Classic Dr. Girlfriend and 'Atlantean Dr. Venture'. Intriguing. Jason Lenzi also kindly responded to my question, saying to keep an eye out for the Brock bobble head, coming to an internet-based web site near you.
Update (7/4/2010): The initial set of auctions have ended but a few extras are still up if you want to contribute!
Tom sends along the following info pertaining to the auctions:
The first sale sold out fast. I've spent this weekend organizing a bigger ebay auction that will hopefully include work from other shows as well as VB. But before it can get fully off the ground, I need to clear some things with ebay. ... there's just a few formalities that need formalized, and then we're off!
In the meantime, I have put one item up. Stay tuned at coughcoughwheeze.com/help -- I'll be updating it as soon as the next thing happens.
