Kid Robot Takes an Adult Swim


Other than the few figures Palisades released a few years ago shortly before it went under, Adult Swim has been damn well near toyless. But not no more! Action-Figure says that Adult Swim will partner with similarly hipper-than-thou vinyl toymaker Kid Robot to create a blind-box line of 18 AS characters, including:

? Assy (Assy McGee)
? Avenger (Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law)
? Bird Girl (Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law)
? Carl (Aqua Teen Hunger Force)
? Dr. Girlfriend (Venture Bros.)
? Early (Squidbillies)
? Grandma (Squidbillies)
? Ignignokt and Err (Aqua Teen Hunger Force)
? Kill Face (Frisky Dingo)
? Lil? (Squidbillies)
? Mad Scientist (Robot Chicken)
? The Monarch (Venture Bros.)
? Murderface (Metalocalypse)
? Orel (Morel Orel)
? Robot Chicken (Robot Chicken)
? Toki (Metalocalypse)
? Two mystery figures

I approve of anything that lets me get my hands on Venture Bros. figures, but apparently these will be $7.96?a hell of a lot for a blind-box where you don’t know which toy you’re getting. I’d be furious if I ended up with a goddamn Squidbilly.
