Bif Bang Pow! Venture Bros. Bloody Brock Samson Action FigureAs I am required by law to say, I did some consulting on the Venture Bros. line so you know that as I review Bloody Brock Samson, I was involved in its creation. The 3 3/4-inch line was a little slow to start, and Bif Bang Pow! opted to kick off with one of the show's most popular characters for Comic-Con with a bonus exclusive variant and the good news is that the reaction is fantastic. I had a list of several Brock variants while this line was being planned-- and no I can't list them here-- but I will tell you that the bloody version was at the top of the same-sculpt list. (I bet you can guess what's at the top of the resculpt list.)

Brock is basically the same mold as his non-exclusisve black-shirted counterpart and was made at a much, much smaller run. As of when I write this review, very few are left in stock. In short, this is what we call a success, and I'm patting myself in the back for putting the name on a list that someone else had to do a bunch of hard work to get made.

Bif Bang Pow! Venture Bros. Bloody Brock Samson Action Figure

Bif Bang Pow! Venture Bros. Bloody Brock Samson Action FigureWearing a white t-shirt with a red ringer would be sufficient change enough, but one of Brock's signatures in the show is his violent rage. So why not cover him in blood? After all, Bif Bang Pow! does Dexter so it seems like a good fit. The hands are coated with red paint, which is just glossy enough to be gross. The shirt is not only covered in red paint on the front, but his backside is super-bloody too! Even the back of his pants are coated in blood, with a streak running down the copyright information on the back of his thigh. It's gorgeous. Which is good, because this lower-run figure was priced a smidgen higher, too.

The sculpt itself is worth noting in that the proportions are appropriately cartoony, with a giant chest and tall, extremely thin legs. He sports 10 points of articulation and has no problems standing on his own, plus the leg movement is done in such a way that yes, this 5-inch figure can indeed sit should a vehicle ever get produced. The knife is a super tight squeeze on the bloody version's holster, but less so on the black shirt release. It has no problems fitting into his hands. Oh, and the other cool thing I almost forgot to mention is that he has a Venture Industries wrist communicator which was painted before being doused in blood, which is a heck of a great detail that cost a few extra cents to get right, no doubt. I like this figure a lot. Either one is a good fit for your collection, but this one is definitely more striking. I'd say you should get both, but I'm biased.
