Someone on Billy West's forums mentioned that they'd started seeing Futurama merchandise pop up at their local Hot Topic, as well as on the web site.

It's odd, because the web site isn't listing all of the shirts, and the stores aren't selling all of the shirts and pins that are listed, but I was able to head down to my own mall and pick up two Futurama pins (they had some of the shirts, too, but none of the ones I wanted).

So, anyway, if you've been wanting Futurama stuff to buy and you're willing to drag yourself into the store, it's there.

I really don't like Hot Topic. It scares me. But for Futurama, I will! *puts on military cap*

Yes, they actually have three shirts. A Bender:Bite my Shiny Metal Ass shirt (which I loved, but was unable to get it), a yellow-ish Futurama shirt with the big 3 (Fry, Leela, Bender) in a similar pose as the videogame boxart, and a PE "employee" shirt, and let me tell you...I have a hard time choosing which of the two I wanna wear. I found them on my vacation and grabbed them, actually squealing at that. Sadly, no buttons were found at my Hot Topic or I might have grabbed those too.

Edit: Just for the record, I hate going in there, at least to mine because it's a dungeon of doom (but the one I vitited on my vacation what white and cherry-colored, and didn't scare me) and the only reason I even dare is because the new Futurama ones and Simpsons shirts that they used to have. Maybe a Star Wars one here and there if I like it.

Half a dozen people pulled me aside to ask me where I'd gotten my pins; I'm hoping as the word spreads and interest in the merchandise rises, we'll get more Futurama based stuff.

It's funny, but the Hot Topic I went to is not longer a "dungeon of DOOM."  They actually installed bright lights and the whole place looks much brighter and... less depressing.  I think they cleaned it up to attract more customers. >_>

I wouldn't doubt that theory. I mean, how many people do you see in those stores that don't wear all black if they're dungeon feeling? Not to many people, unless they're in there for a moment and rush back out.

Sweet. Now to get my car keys back, get money from my parents so I can buy one of each Futurama shirt they have and brave the depressing dungeon of doom that is my local Hot Topic at Crossgates to get the stuff. This'll take some planning.

At my local Hot Topic store, I saw Futurama action figures!  However, the only ones I saw were of Fry and Zoidberg.  No Leela or Bender for the time being.

The Hot Topic near me has the pins and I'm pretty sure the action figures. I fianlly got the couarge to go in the when I saw that they had the other Bender shirt and I needed to see how much it cost. It's a necessity for Senior year for me. Man I'm Senior now, wow! One more year 'til college. Where have the years gone? Like SP said they actually calmed it down it actually feels more like a normal store.

I just ordered a Fry action figure, and my Bender tin toy and shirt came in (the one with the sparks coming from his antenna) but had to order a larger size. The shirt was fine, all except the shoulders. For whatever reason, they were too narrow.

Yeah Hot Topic tends to have stuff smaller than it should be especially at the shoulders. My bite my shiny metal ass shirt is too small at the shoulders. I hate to think of how the Bender shirt with the sparks will be. I gotta get some action figures and pins.

How would we go about getting Hot Topic to make a 'shippy Fry/Leela shirt? We need to plan.    smile They wont ignore us, they can't.

@BF1221: You keep emailing their website until they do it. I'm still waiting for the shirt advertised on this. It's the "Futurama" one (next to it's what I had to reorder a larger size in, for those who may have been confused). Why cuoldn't they come up with an awesome name like "PE Crew T-shirt"?

@Prof. Zoidy: Spam email party. Woo-hoo!   smile I can't find the P.E. crew shirt on the wesite or at my Hot Topic. It makes me angry. Do you know where I can get it at or is there a link to where I can get it? Who know why they couldn't come up with a better name. The Bender shirt witht eh sparks coming out of the antenna could have used a better name like 'Bender Laser show' in stead of 'Bender Bolt'.

I'd like a PE Crew shirt too if I can find one.  I'm also kicking myself for not picking up a shirt with Bender as pimped-out fur-decked robot fighter when those were available several months ago.

Same here Prof Zoidy. I didn't even know that there was Futurama clothes at Hot Topic until I saw this thread. They need to get Futurama clothes at more stores because Hot Topic isn't a place that is really popular with anybody except those who like gothic or emo clothes. I would never have gone in there except for the fact that they had Futurama stuff.

It's popular with me because they always had Simpson shirts....until recently. But Futurama replaced that with which gave me no further reason to go in there (which is the fact they had no really good shirts or they were too small...like those Pokemon ones.  laff.).

I got my Fry figure from them. It shipped way faster this time, and my XL Bender Bolt came in. The shoulders were better and it fit (well, duh....if the large fit...but I still don't get why they make shirts that a toddler could wear...Seriously, who can cram themselves into a small in that shirt?). I also got my Fry figure and I'm highly impressed with it's quality, though the whole bit on the back with the huge Matt Groening logo could've been handled differently(like it being on his shoes instead for example), but the high articulation is really awesome. You could make a claymation-esque mini-movie with this thing.  red face Next one to get: Zoidberg.

I'm gonna buy the Bender bolt shirt at the store I can get enough money. I need to get enough money to buy the stuff that I want there like the Simpsons and Futurama stuff. You should work on a clay-mation mini-episode/movie with figures. That would be awesome. Hot Topic really does needs to make their clothes normal sized.

I went to Hot Topic yesterday, and I found the action figures and pins. Well, there goes forty dollars. :P But I just needed them to sit on my shelf! <3

And in an unrelated matter, I recently discovered that they have shirts for every Guitar Hero game...*drools*

The Hot Topic website is terrible.  I've been trying to see what the PE Crew shirt looks like, but it doesn't show up under a search for "Futurama".  Not all of their Futurama stuff shows up when you search for it, so you have to dig, dig, dig.  How sucky.

I know exactly what you meen. The last time i was on the website it sucked. The only shirt that came up was the "Bite My Shiney Metal Ass shirt". I happen to own the PE crew shirt, If you still have trouble finding it I would be glad to send you a picture. big grin
