they've killed the BAF concept....or so i thought. the last two waves didn't have anything..and i think we woulda heard something by now concerning the robot mafia and flexo waves..maybe they're just gonna do exclusives now.

makes since tho, cuz they gota appeal to a larger croud. and most people just want a specific character, and not have to buy 6 to get it.

Guys - this cryptic little clue from Toynami is something to get excited about for CC. "And his.............opponent"!! I mean its got to be Gender Bender  smile . The fact that it is another Bender variant shouldnt really be a huge issue with this one because like Wooden Bender it will be a new mold. I for one can't wait to see  big grin

Glad to see Toynami becoming so communicative now that they have a Facebook page (though I hate Facebook as find it hard to keep track of comment and can't link directly to posts!).

Here are a couple of interesting Toynami comments in full, first about Destructor:

Quote
He's just under 12 inches! Totally in scale with the rest of the line and his...................opponen t...............
[13 July]

That's interesting, the way it's written definitely suggests to me that Gender Bender is in the works. It'd be great if he was packed in with Destructor for the $40 (fingers crossed), but I'd be surprised if he wasn't sold separately later.

And am glad to get confirmation that Destructor’s about 30cm tall, which is great as the shelf I have for him is only 32cm tall – love it when a plan comes together! :P

And an update on Bender Version 02:

Quote
New bender is shipping out to our customers now, so you should see them at stores soon!
[14 July]

That's good, though I was really hoping there’d be some other figures ready by now so I could combine shipping.

I’ve got him on pre-order at BBTS with their “pile o’ loot” feature, which means they’ll hold him for me for up to six months after he arrives. Think I’ll leave him there and hope some other figures show up in the interim.

Can somebody please ask them if the figures will become easier to find in the UK?

I received talking Bender today. Since Ebay is the only way for me to buy Futurama figures I waited a long time to appear in UK sellers. Finally I got tired of waiting and I ordered from US and A :P
 Figure is amazing at 9". Makes you wish all the previous figures were this big!

12 inches :P, that's awesome!

I don't want a Gender Bender though frown. I want to see Slurms and Yancy!

Yancy!

I know he's your favourite character, but I highly doubt they will release a figure of a super minor character like Yancy. hmpf

Nudar seemed super minor as he was only pertinent to one movie...

SCRUFFY!

SCRUFY! times a million, until he's part of my collection...i will not be complete. just like futurefreak pointed out, they made a nudar. i can see why tho, he was a pivitol character in BBS. but still scruffys gettin more air time with the new season and he's the only PE crew that hasn't been made.

i would also like to see toynami make moms three sons. that'd be dope, just to complete her. a werrnstrom would be nice too.

i'm not diggin the possibility of another bender variant being gender bender, but if it happens i'll cop it. it's just getting very very old. i know he's the most popular character, but damn, enough with bender!

Gender Bender is probably gonna be boxed in with Destructor. I kinda hope he's what makes the SDCC version exclusive rather than just some sticker. I really want Destructor. If GB is exclusive or sold seperately I'll skip it.

I don't see why they can't do Yancy, they're doing Destructor, Robot Mafia and Flexo. Any character is possible!!

I think the prospect of a Yancy figure is pretty unlikely to be honest. But a Slurms is a real possibility (if Toynami pull their finger out) and would be a very popular figure. I would love it if the Gender Bender figure was a Comic Con exclusive. And it would make sense if it  therefor could only be purchased by people that had pre-ordered Destructor at the event. Yes it would be a greedy way of doing business  hmpf, but it would lead to increased sales of both and would make for another rare figure in future (as with original Zoidberg exclusives etc). Would make sense for Toynami as a company and even us as collectors in the long run   smile

I got Amy for five pounds at a convention.  I didn't think it was a very good figurine (her skin color was a weird greyish coffee color, her hair had some weird geometric design when viewed from the back, she kept dropping her ray gun so I think I've lost it, and she falls over if you so much look at her too hard), but still, she's my favorite Futurama character, and I wuv her!

I don't have his torso or head.  My fry and bender are re-issues, and I still haven't forked out the money for Zoidberg.  Doubt I'll ever get the Robot Devil...

Yeah, my professor barely stands, Calculon and Captain Yesterday are kind of wobbly as well.

Amy falls over if I blink too close to her, and I've given up trying to get her to hold her raygun.

If your figures keep falling over you can always rely on the hot water trick. Get the hot water running. Hold the legs of your figure in the stream so they heat up. You'll be able to adjust the legs/feet. Then cool down with cold water so the change becomes permanent.

I've used this fix on several figures. Works for a most of them but sometimes the legs will bend out of shape again. My Farnsworth figure does this. Just do it again and he's fixed for another half year.

One things that bugs me: They have just about every single different version of Bender...

But why haven't they done Coilette yet?  I would love a Coilette figure!  She's also pratically a character in her own right, as oppose to being Bender in a funny outfit.  

Also they really should make some figures of their female characters.  Three vs... how many males?  What are we, on Planette Smurfette?
