Hi guys, newbie here!

Have been trying to collect Futurama figures for a short while after picking up a few from Forbidden Planet. Does anybody know where I could find Zoidberg, Fry and Bender (original build-a-figure versions)? I know this is not eBay but there are NONE on there, either uk or american site :S I could find two Zoidbergs on amazon.com but one seller has 33% positive feedback out of 3 sellers(!) and the other one doesn't ship to UK!

Any help/comments would be appreciated, how many of you are from the UK too?

England sucks noodles doesn't it?
Keep searching eBay, I buy a lot of my stuff from there but you have to search frequently. I also bought my Kidrobot figures from dinkybox.co.uk - I've emailed them and asked if they could get more Futurama stock, so maybe if you and others email them too they may make it happen. They are a friendly little company so you should at least get a response.

The only other suggestion I can think of is Forbidden Planet as you already know. I asked a similar question a while ago, and I'm still looking frown You may find a specialised real world shop somewhere, but I have yet to find one frown

Let me know if you find anything

Yeah, they are cool. I bought six blind boxes from them, but now they've sold out of the blind boxes and I have three Leelas!

Thanks for the tips guys, just out of interest what is the most you've ever paid for a piece of Futurama merchandise?

$200ish (can't remember what shipping was now) for my Ho-Ho-Holiday of Horror Giclee. Second would probably be my Robot Santa/Santa Bender set. I think I paid like $60 and then more on top for shipping and I got import tax as well those bastards! Hefty, but still worth it...

As his eBay name suggests, this seller in the UK used to have a ton of Futurama stuff:

http://myworld.ebay.com/futurama.shopuk

Once bought from him the Bender that went with Robot Santa.

He doesn't have so much stuff now, but you could try drop him a line as he might have other stock and/or advice.

Thanks for that guys, I ended up buying a few hard-ish to find figures from futurama.shop including Farnsworth and Kif! For those that have the Robot Santa/Bender set, is there any point getting it if I keep my Futurama in their boxes? I wish it came with a window to display the figures but I'm guessing it doesn't?

I've never been to Forbidden Planet in London, it's one of the few I've not visited. A couple of my friends frequent the premises too hmpf...

I treated myself to a cute Fry of my very own yesterday.  Along with Rupert Grint, he is my favorite ever redhead.   But unlike Rupert, he doesn't play the most pointless character in literature.

Lol! I live in Manchester, never been to the one down south either! Am guessing it's the Encore edition without build-a-figure?
