I've been debating whether to get the Kidrobot Nibbler or not. A part of me wants to, then a part of remembers I have the larger MAC Nibbler sitting comfortably on my shelf, and he's way cuter.

He does look good with them, jabalong. big grin

I've got that big MAC Nibbler too and just stuck my Kidrobot Nibbler beside him for now, as his stumpy, little brother. Don't know that I'd go out of my way to get him, unless you're keen to have all the Kidrobot figures (though I don't think he looks right with them  tongue).

Looks like Things from another world started taking pre-orders on the Zoidberg vinyl for $40 with a release date in mid July!! I'm pre-ordering mine as Zoidberg always seems to be rare.

The 2.0 Tineez should be out soon, too (I mentioned them here because they are similar in style and size to the blind box kidrobot guys).

According to the Kidrobot website, it's because of licensing problems but it looks like most EU countries would be okay.

"Futurama Regional Shipping Policy:
Due to licensing restrictions, we regret that we can only ship Futurama toys to customers in: USA, Puerto Rico, Canada, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Greece and Russia."

I saw these at the check-out counter of the Booksamillion near my office the other day and nearly bought one. They'd be more interesting to look at than the ceramic figurines that come in my boxes of tea.

So, it seems that on top of the blindboxed keychains (1.5 inch/4cm) there's some more 6inch characters coming.

Wonder if this means we can look forward to a future Kidrobot Series 2 with versions of the 6" ones made (wooden Bender, blue Zoidberg, Hedonismbot). Hope so!

Chances are pretty goof good that, assuming there is a series 2, they'd want to include alternate versions of the major characters (I believe they did for so Simpsons) and scaling down these seems plausible, especially Zoidberg - they've already got the mould.

Futurefreak how much was the Kidrobot Blue Zoidberg? They are on eBay for around $90... worth it?

That's how much I paid for mine, $89.99 with free shipping. They have been going for around 75-80 bucks at bid and 85 and higher at BIN. I hate getting into bid wars when I can just buy the item so that's what I did. I saw in the history though that in the first few days many sold for over $100...At the con, he retailed at $50, but sold out in 1 day to only those who had wristbands...which is why his value is so high.

I think he's cute, anyhow. I normally wouldn't shell out so much money on an exclusive but I kinda was set on it once I saw the ad for it. And I don't have a blue zoidberg in my collection; I never got the Toynami exclusive from many years back.

I'm so excited about these. Much prefer these 6" figures over the Toynami stuff (although I collect both).

I've just put in an order for Dr Zoidberg on Amazon (the normal one and not the alternate universe one).

Only 1 left:- http://www.amazon.co.uk/T13YL013-Futurama-Zoidberg-Vinyl-Figure/dp/B00CJEK3I4/ref=sr_1_54?s=kids&ie=UTF8&qid=1375881936&sr=1-54&keywords=futurama

That Hedonism Bot looks awesome! I'd totally display him with my Toynami figures, at least until Toynami actually makes him.

looks like the Kid Robot key chains are popping up now. Sal doesn't have his facial hair stubble but aside from that it looks pretty similar to the blindbox figure.

I went down to the Kid Robot store here and picked up a case of the blind boxes. I like these little ones better than the original run, though they don't have the accessories. Slurms is still my favorite one...

The only Kidrobot item I've ever wanted is that little Zoidberg keychain.

But I guess I would settle for a Morbo one too.

I want them mainly for their acessories. I wish the Toynami figures had episode-specific acessories like this line has, such as Zapp's Big Book of War and Mom's doll.

Does anybody have an official rarity list?
When I look at the information that is available on the internet, it seems that there are no really rare figures this time. That would be great. smile

Keychains look cool!   Where do you get them?  Also weren't there any Kidrobot toys that were plush?

I've been looking at these, and it looks like the only noticeable difference is that Zodiberg now has his stethoscope painted on. That and Slurms appears to have his glasses on instead of separate.

I received my case of keychains today. I've got:
3x Zoidberg
3x Slurms
2x Devil
2x Bender
2x Fry
2x Leela
2x Nibbler
1x Zapp
1x Lrrr
1x Morbo
1x Mom
0x Sal

There are no details about the rarity on the box or the case.

Neither the case nor the blind boxes had any information on rarity, other than the Robot Devil was in silhouette with a question mark over his face. I assume that means he is slightly more rare. Here is the count for the case I bought at the KidRobot Store in Soho:

3x Zoidberg
2x Devil
2x Bender
2x Fry
2x Leela
2x Nibbler
2x Zapp
1x Slurms
1x Lrrr
1x Morbo
1x Mom
1x Sal

Almost identical to Nibbler_04's though instead of three Slurms I got one Slurms, two Zapps, and a Sal.
