Go Team Venture! Hank Venture came out in the second batch of figures, but as one of the main characters is totally essential. As the only action figure of the character released thus far, I'll just say go ahead and get one. The figure's skin tone is way better than Dean Venture's pale face, which is unfortunately highlighted when you stand them both next to one another.
...as always, I consulted on this line, so do keep that in mind when reading this very objective and in no way self-promoting and also fanboyish review.
The head sculpt is good, and the outfit is appropriately Mego-ish. Well, mostly-- I like the belt, and the watch communicator is a great feature. The head sculpt looks like a cartoon character, as it should, and his goofy smile is just perfect. His kerchief though? I don't care for it. If you look at the picture you can see it looks a little worn, and that's exactly how it looks as it comes out of the package. If you're a customizer, you might consider trying your hand at seeing what you can do with it. I'm a putz, so I'm just going to leave it.
The 8-inch figure line is moving ahead for 2012, so you'll probably want to get him before he sells out. Or not. I like the style but it feels like it could benefit from a second edition with an improved kerchief and maybe some sort of accessory like a weapon or Brock's jacket. (I'm trying to remember if we knew Brock's jacket was a thing when this figure first went into preproduction a couple of years back. I'm pretty sure we didn't.) Anyway. It's good, but there's always room for improvement, except on vintage Battle Beasts because those damn things are perfect.
