The Cartoon Network Enterprises, which is the licensing and merchandising arm of Adult Swim, announced yesterday that the toy/collectible Bif Bang Pow! are working on a new line of The Venture Bros. toys. The line will include articulated action figures, bobble heads and vehicles.
According to the press release, a series of 7-inch scale resin bobble heads are targeted for spring 2010, followed by action figures in the summer of 2010. These fully-articulated figures will include Dr. Venture, The Monarch, Brock Samson, Hank and 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.
"We've been courting The Venture Brothers for quite some time now, and we're beyond excited to finally bring fans what they want: a range of fully articulated action figures and bobble heads," said Jason Lenzi, CEO of Bif Bang Pow! "With the ever-expanding cast of characters in the Venture universe, the possibilities are endless. And, as always with Bif Bang Pow!, expect the unexpected!"
“A toy line based on The Venture Bros. has been a long time coming but we now have the ideal partner on board to bring these characters to life," said Christina Miller, senior vice president, CNE. "With their distinct style and love for the series, the team at Bif Bang Pow! has created an impressive line that will excite our fans and meet their discerning tastes."
The Venture Bros. creator Jackson Publick, who has been working closely with Bif Bang Pow! on the planning and creation of the toy line, adds, "Finally. It's about time someone made some action figures based on the show. This is going to be great!"
