We talk to Bif Bang Pow!â€™s Jason Lenzi about the new Venture Bros. toy line, and debut a very personal piece of art from the new season of Venture Bros.!
LOS ANGELES, CA (January 7, 2010) â€“ Bif Bang Pow! and Cartoon Network Enterprises, the licensing and merchandising arm of Adult Swim, blast off for action with todayâ€™s partnership announcement that will bring to market a brand-new line of toys based on the popular animated series The Venture Bros. One of the most highly sought after product lines from Adult Swimâ€™s library, The Venture Bros. collection from Big Bang Pow! will feature an array of articulated action figures, bobble heads, and vehicles, each embodying that distinctive action-comedy mix that has become synonymous with the series.
First to be released from the line is a series of 7-inch scale resin bobble heads targeted for spring 2010. Action figures are scheduled to hit the market in the summer of 2010. These fully-articulated figures will include the series most popular and recognizable characters including Dr. Venture, The Monarch, Brock Samson, Hank & Dean Venture and more. Several exclusives are also in the works. More detailed information about the products will be made available in the coming weeks.
For now we have a little thing I whipped up something to display historical episode scores by you, the readers. I've been collecting votes since 2006 and this list shows monthly scores for the top fifteen episodes of every month from 2007 through 2009. Go check it out and let me know what you think!
For those of your curious about the other prizes, I haven't selected a winner for the Brock shirt or shot glass yet (I'm waiting until I return home on the 1st) so if you entered to win those you still have a chance! Thanks to all the participants and have a great new year!
Update (12/29 @ 2:24pm): Mad Mark in the comments also kindly pointed out Geek Monthly did a similarly awesome interview with Doc Hammer back on December 15th. I never reported on it then, but I am now! You can read it here.
