Revealed at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con are prototypes of the Venture Bros. 3-3/4″ action figures by Bif Bang Pow. The figures are about the same size as Star Wars action figures and come with a character accessories. The prototypes include Brock Samson, Dr. Mrs. the Monarch and the Venture Brothers, Hank and Dean Venture.
We later learned in our interview with Bif Bang Pow, that the action figures were not green lit and production hinged greatly on audience interest and pre-orders. Pre-orders for the figures opened last August, followed by rallying support from the network and online communities.
After months of uncertainty, Bif Bang Pow and Entertainment Earth finally confirmed toy production yesterday. Leading BBP’s Venture Bros. toy line is Brock Samson with trademark knife and mullet. Bif Bang Pow anticipates the Brock Samson figure will ship after San Diego Comic-Con, late July or early August 2012.
So far, only Brock Samson is confirmed for toy production and your pre-order for these Venture characters has never been more important! Bif Bang Pow needs to hit a certain number of pre-orders before production can begin on the rest of the figures.
Pre-order the figures at Entertainment Earth or ask your favorite comic and toy shops to order the figures for their store. Your credit card will not be charged until the figures arrive later this year and then you’ll have been part of Venture Brothers history!
Happy Birthday, Entertainment Earth!

Action Figure F.A.Q.
I ordered a wave/assortment/set of figures with many different characters in it.
Will I still receive those?
No. Notifications are being sent out now to announce that all waves, assortments and sets have been cancelled. If you ordered one of these items before with a mix of characters, please verify the cancellation has taken place and pre-order the individual Brock Samson figure instead.
Why did this happen?
We tried many different strategies in getting these action figures to market. Factory minimum orders and low pre-orders prevented these from coming to market sooner. Thankfully, we’ve overcome these hurdles for Brock Samson only.
What about the other characters? When will they be released?
We understand that everyone wants to know the fate of the remaining characters and if they will be cancelled or will be going into production. First, the line will not be cancelled unless our license expires in a few years. The fate of the remaining characters depends on strong pre-orders. We will make announcements when each new character is about to go into production, whenever that may be. So in theory you may see more delays on certain characters, but eventually we hope to release them.
Thanks again for your continued support of this product line!
