Bif Bang Pow! Venture Bros. Dr. Girlfriend Action FigureEasily one of the most memorable characters in animation in the past decade, Dr. Girlfriend is the rare female villain that combines intelligence, Jackie O-ness, and a pillbox hat. Standing at about 8-inches tall, she owes a lot to her Mego ancestors, specifically due to her body type and her boots.

...as always, I consulted on this line, so do keep that in mind when reading.

Bif Bang Pow! Venture Bros. Dr. Girlfriend Action FigureThe plastic boots look and feel like vintage 1970s, while the outfit is quite new. The pillbox hat is molded to her head, which is the typical hollow plastic of these retro 8-inch figures. The gloves are painted hands, with a little trim (actually bracelets) to complete the look. The outfit itself uses velcro-- a little bulky-- to fasten itself around the figure, which actually had some surprised underneath.

A padded bra? Painted panties? Hunh. Didn't see that coming. Neither really adds much to articulation-- which is standard Mego-- but I don't know that padded undergarments are the norm on this kind of figure. For a cartoon character's unique proportions, it makes sense-- a few other figures, like Hurley from Lost, also make use of extra material to enhance the body type.

Bif Bang Pow! Venture Bros. Dr. Girlfriend Action FigureAs (at press time) the only Dr. Girlfriend toy larger than a small PVC trading figure, odds are you'll be getting her based on the merits of the character rather than the figure. While I do wish she had snaps instead of velcro on her dress, she turned out really well and the character design works well within the vocabulary of the 1970s Mego format. This is more of a display piece than anything-- she needs some help to stand, for example, and it's not like there are any vehicles or playsets. As I'm a fan of the show and this feels like some weird artifact from the future, one I'm happy to have around. I'd suggest fans of the show grab it, but if you aren't already sold on the character it's not like the figure breaks new ground in a way that will slap your collection upside the head. It's good, it's fun, it's from my favorite Adult Swim show. And that's good enough for me (for now, who knows what's next?)!
