Bif Bang Pow! Venture Bros. Dr. Mrs. The Monarch Action FigureThe 3 3/4-inch scale Dr. Mrs. The Monarch was, like most of this line, in a holding pattern for a while. At one point she was to have a Monarch-themed bazooka accessory, but well... obviously, she doesn't now. This line was developed around season 3 of the show, which is why the character has this appearance and is not Dr. Girlfriend.

As always I'm required (and proud) to say I consulted on this line, so assume that you're hearing from a very biased resource.

Bif Bang Pow! Venture Bros. Dr. Mrs. The Monarch Action Figure

Hank, Dean, Brock, and Dr. Mrs. The Monarch were the first four prototypes completed for this particular series and they're not at all bad - I like the second wave more because Dr. Mrs. is molded in flesh-colored plastic with a painted outfit, which gives her a pretty nice look as action figures go. Painted figures often look good and I bet it would've worked to give her a fully-painted flesh face as it would simulate make-up, but this is pretty good too. Her face has a little bit of color and she has a slightly evil smirk, plus the crown to match the Monarch which is due soonish. (Long story.)

The Monarch's main squeeze has 10 points of articulation, with added elbow and knee joints. Her foot peg hole is sized to match Star Wars 1995-present, and I assure you that is intentional. The costume is simple with black fabric lined with yellow and a red butterfly printed on it, plus, uh, ample assets sculpted on there. On the television show, part of the character's charm comes from a sexpot superhero character body paired with a ten-pack-a-day voice and a genius personality, making her a pretty great pastiche of women in comics and cartoons. I assume this is also a nod to the likes of Cobra's Baroness, but it's not like I had those conversations with anybody. I just got the toy.

Bif Bang Pow! Venture Bros. Dr. Mrs. The Monarch Action FigureUnlike other figures in this line, she has flexible plastic wings. The key word here is flexible - they're rubbery and will not support the figure. You'll need to pose her right, or use a display stand. The joints are tight and the overall quality of the figure is quite good, but it wouldn't surprise me if people saw the elbows as a little thin. (Of course, I tend to argue for less articulation on most of my action figures, so what do I know.)

Brock and Dr. Girlfriend were two of my favorite characters on the show, with the Monarch being one of my favorites of all time. It's really great to have them in plastic figure form, although on the whole these are better for collectors than for kids - just like the show. Get one for your desk at work, but if your kids want a new figure this just isn't the right one for them on oh so many levels.
