EMCE Toys and Bif Bang Pow are joining forces for the co-release of action figures of popular shows. These will be Mego-style release based on the 70′s explosion of action figures of the comics world by Mego.
The design of the figures will be by EMCE Toys, featuring 8 inch action figures with proper clothing and accessories where and when available. There are over 40 figures in this project, all planned for 2010 (yay), and the first batch is in Summer and also for the Comic Con in San Diego, with the rest of the bunch following suit later in the year. The Mego-ized 40 figures are spread across 7 shows.
The Venture Bros.(Cartoon Network)
Dexter (Showtime Networks)
The Big Lebowski (NBC Universal)
The Twilight Zone (CBS)
Flash Gordon (King Features)
Scott Ian (Anthrax)
Jackson Publick, creator of The Venture Bros was impressed by how Bif Bang Pow was able to find that sweet spot between the 2-D and 3-D world and also said fans are going to crap themselves with Brock’s action figure.
Jason Lenzi of Bif Bang Pow said he was excited by having these sets of action figures all in the same universe, providing some interesting setups and displays.
The first action figures will be shown at Toy Fair in New York on February 14 through 17, this year, 2010, and they will be shown to retailers and press on EMCE Toys’ boot.
The figures will be available to pre-order on Entertainment Earth (check them back). Click here to check Bif Bang Pow on Entertainment Earth or click the pic on the left (again, the new ones are to be displayed at the Toy Fair, they’ll probably be available afterward so check them back).
