This seems to be the most rare of all Futurama mechandise, which is surprising. I've only ever seen one version of the ship and that was a small one. Is there a larger version of the ship available?

Look at the middle figure.  There are also some model Planet Express ships floating around Ebay, but you'd have to put it together yourself most likely.

Not sure about a large ship... but I have scale replicas of the various lengths of wire used to build.

I wish they did a PX ship Airfix kit. I'd buy a 1:72 scale PX ship to hang on a wire from my ceiling.

They got the model almost right, but the inconsistencies would drive my OCD crazy.

Who squished the ship? It's pretty cool looking, but it must have been on a diet recently or something.

As far as I know, the Zoidberg and Bender figures from the picture above were never released officially. The space ship could be ordered from skyhook models.

Or does anybody know where these figures could be bought about 10 years ago?

They should really build a big Planet Express Starship as Action Figure Carrying Case/Display (about the same way Hasbro did build the Royal Starship for their Star Wars line...though I think 50cm without wings would be the maximum length for a toyline like Futurama)

They did a Lego C3PO and that turned out pretty good...


Some compromises would have to be made for a Lego Bender, but I'm sure they could pull it off...

Well, they did do a very good job of customising the Lego and creating the Futurama characters. Bender can be seen waterskiing in this absolutely awesome video from the same person, but he does still look kinda odd. I couldn't do a better job, the person who made it did an unbelievably amazing job, and anyone who hasn't seen it, I can't emphasise enough how much your life will be enriched by watching that video...

I would fully be willing to overpay for Futurama LEGOs if they ever made a set or two. I'd be all over a PE ship/building set. Hell, just give me a gigantic ship LEGO model and I'll glue the bricks together so I can hang the ship up from my ceiling somehow.
Same goes for an official model kit. I've never had the patience or skill to piece together models before unless they snapped together but I'd be willing to give model-making a try if a PE ship was manufactured.

They'd probably create a new piece for Bender's head.

I can picture a stockier version of the Bender head that was fan-made and maybe a tad wider. As for the body itself I'm unsure as to whether or not they would alter that shape. If they did, it would hardly be an atrocity compared to those new girly LEGO monstrosities they've made, that's for sure. Unless I dreamed that up...

There's a little cylinder piece I can picture that fits onto the 'neck' mounts of lego figures that would make a good Bender head, with his face painted on it. It's basically one unit high and is only slightly wider than the 'neck' section of the figures. His antenna would probably be too small to properly represent, though; you'd end up with something comically large.
