Harry Shearer To Return To "The Simpsons"
Last month we learned that Bif Bang Pow! is producing toys based on Cartoon Network’s The Venture Bros., including action figures, vehicles and bobbleheads. Now you can add 1970s Mego-style figures to the list as well, according to a press release posted over at the Mego Museum. Per the release (which doesn’t actually use the word “Mego,” I’m guessing, for trademark reasons):
Reproductions reminiscent of the best-selling action figures of the 1970s and early 1980s, these highly articulated figures will feature body designs by EMCE Toys. Each 8-inch scale figure will include real cloth clothing and plastic accessories where appropriate.
Over 40 licensed action figures are planned for 2010. The first are targeted for an early summer arrival and Comic-Con International: San Diego 2010, with others to follow later in the year. Included are much-demanded characters from:
The Venture Bros.™ (Cartoon Network)
Dexter™ (Showtime Networks)
Lost™ (ABC Disney)
The Big Lebowski™ (NBC Universal)
The Twilight Zone™ (CBS)
Flash Gordon™ (King Features)
Scott Ian (Anthrax)
