Don't Judge the Venture Bros. by the Lost Figures, Please

...yeah. These are Bif Bang Pow's new Lost figures, done in the Mego-style. They are slightly terrifying. All those people who were upset when I mentioned that Bif Bang Pow was also going to make their Venture Bros. figures Mego-style -- well, I don't imagine these are helping. I mean, look at Ben:

Even I can't swear that toy won't kill me in my sleep. I love Lost, but I'd rather take my chances with the smoke monster, frankly.

That said -- Venture fans, I think it's going to be okay. first of all, Bif Bang Pow's JLabs came on to TR during that post and said they'd still be exploring regular action figures with the Venture license. If the Megos don't sell, I promise you they'll try normal action figures rather than give up on the license -- and more likely, they'll end up doing both anyways.

Second of all, I think Lost isn't doing Mego figures a favor, or vice versa. Megos aren't really designed to have realistic heads, like from a modern, live-action TV show. I honestly think the retro, cartoon designs of The Venture Bros. will work much, much better as Megos than these guys. We'll have to wait and see, but if you're a Mego-hating Venture Bros. fan, I don't think there's any reason to lose your shit at the moment. All right? (Via Mego Museum)
