There’s no better way to start a new year than with a deal – and today’s deal from Entertainment Earth is for the 3.75-inch Venture Bros figures from Big Bang Pow! The Doc, Hank, Dean, and Brock are all available for $5 each (that’s half off), as are their nemeses – the Monarch, Dr. Mrs. the Monarch, and Phantom Limb. The con exclusive bloody Brock Samson is also available for $7.50 (also half off).
Entertainment Earth will be at New York Comic Con for the first time this year. They’re continuing their partnership with Toys R Us, so in addition to the Bif Bang Pow! and Funko exclusives, they will also have some of the TRU items, like Minimates, Real Ghostbusters, and an exclusive Rick Grimes from the Walking Dead line of figures from McFarlane.
I hope the guys don’t hold this against me, but as much as I’ve enjoyed the Venture Bros., I haven’t yet bought any of the Mego-like figures. I think they nailed Brock Samson, but Doc, Hank, and Dean Venture were a little on the weak side – I think it was their eyes.
But Bif Bang Pow! is definitely hitting their stride – these figures have gotten better with every release, and Jonas and Rusty are perfect. When you see the figures in a big group, and knowing the number of characters they have planned, the line becomes incredibly appealing. But please, give Molotov Cocktease a little more cleavage – lift and separate!
I wish I could say more about the Dr. Who figures – I’ve never seen the show. My buddy Ayeffkay showed me this t-shirt, It Came Out Of Nowhere, and I wanted to know why the DeLorean had run into a phone booth. I apologize for my ignorance.
