Because this thread didn't exist.

Got mine today for Xmas, got some nice art on, I somehow found out Eric Rogers wrote everything on it. (Like jokes and stuff.) laff Each month is a parody of a real life magazine, e.g. Playbot and stuff.

Pros

*2 hot Amy covers and 2 of Leela, but only one of them is pretty hot...
*Lot of detail on the magazine covers and some obscure-ish characters on one or two.
*The actual cover of the calendar is very nice, but you can find that on Google Images...

Cons

*Fry is only featured on it once, and it's in November!
*The Professor isn't on it at all. (From what I've seen...)

Thanks for the info, Danny.  I just realized that I don't have a 2012 calendar yet!

Ditto! I keep procrasinating on that...the cover art looks very cool, very oldskool Futurama back when they actually used tubes...

I would like to see more tubes, though they did use it in ATPH.

Dunno if there was a reference to Season 6 on the 2011 Calendar, but the 2012 one mentions V-GINY.

I love the Arrogant Cigar Jerk and ZQ (Zapp Quarterly) magazine parodies.   Plus an Amy centerfold - sweet!

I don't really want the calendar. I was never a big fan of action-figures, as a matter of fact: I was never a fan. I just don't get excitement out of that stuff. But I have a "Why Not Zoidberg?" poster.  (V) (;,,;) (V) big grin (We should add the Zoidy emoticon to the others when you preview post.

Shaky camera work and not very bright, but here's the Amy centerfold...


I don't remember her boobs being that big in the show, but I'm not complaining... flirt

Her boobs are not that big. Also, the way they're head-on but her lower half is turned makes that hands-on-hips position look kind of uncomfortable.

Pentiumhouse, haha.

Usually, the Futurama characters do have a bigger head in relation to the body.
This Amy pinup is closer to normal human proportions than the show version, means a bigger body, longer legs, larger breasts etc... compared to the head/body ratio seen in the episodes.

Edith say:
Made a quick comparison:



Both Amys are about the same height, and the breasts also do not vary that much in size. But as the Pinups Amy's breasts are larger in comparison to her head, she looks overall bustier than the show version.

Dammit, this calendar is sold out...everywhere. Now people are trying to sell it on Amazon for $1000-$5000 a piece (I am SO not joking here). Looks like futurefreak loses out this year.

1. That's not an emoticon. It's a whole freakin' text string.



2. No. Just no. I think there's something fundamental that you're missing here about the way that PEEL smileys look, and work.

3. Lists are great.

Dude, you don't need to write EMOTICONS FOR DUMMIES. I would like it as an emoticon. And also, the calendar is looking good this year. Did they make one every year?

The last few years, anyway. But I only started getting them in 2008 or 2009 I think.

Well when I put mine on my Xmas list I told my Mum to hurry up, there were like 3 in stock... wtf?

The lamest calendar has to be this year's, and I'm glad I didn't get it. It was just screen grabs (and boring ones from the looks of it) of all 4 movies, with the title of the movie it was from underneath... no no

Not sure if it could be considered a centerfold even in a current Readers Digest let alone in a magazine a 1000 from now in an era without primitive notions of modesty. I give it  sleep sleep sleep sleep's.

Even Marge's Stupid Ages spread was spicier.

Thanks for the comparison, Hein.

I can't say I'm super depressed about not having this calendar. I don't even use wall calendars, and it sounds disappointing. The centerfold isn't exactly convincing me to fight for it.

So, uh, what's the best way to hang a calendar up?

I used to put a nail through the hole at the top and blu-tack on the 2 bottom corners, but the top still ripped off from the weight of the bottom. Then I did the same, but put blu-tack on the top 2 corners too. And that's just messy.

It seemed to be marketed towards guys [Amy] ...one type of woman [Amy], so I would see why you would think that. I'm also not a big calendar person either, so I'm crazy over it too.

I am also not overenthusiastic about that calendar. The magazine cover joke is nice, but imhO not worth being told 12 times. Somehow, I miss a few larger scenes with more persons and details (I like details..wink )

I used to just tape the top of the cover/first page to the wall and then add a nail through the hole to hold up future pages.

Thumbtacks work fine. They work well, allow your calendar to pivot (in case it's not straight), and come out easy too.

Yeah, tacking the upper corners could help. But it still might rip, and then that's three tacks you have to change every month.

Since Borders went out, I've got no place to seek out these things by chance in-store and by the time I remember calendars are going on sale, I've already missed out on Futurama's yearly outing. It's not as if I'm at a major loss by the sound of it, and I merely collect them and leave them mint in their plastic wrap. That, and I've missed every year but two anyways... I should get album frames if they're large enough and hang 'em on my wall. That'd be really awesome.

You what!? You threw it out!? mad...

Also, why is there a discussion about how to hang them up? Put a nail in the wall, put the calendar over the nail. It should hold on its own, all of mine have. Yes even in January they have been perfectly fine. Nothing else has ever been required. This is of course unless they've started making the calendars out of shitter quality materials?...

I haven't bought a calendar for a couple of years or so, but I do have a collection of many old Futurama calendars dating right back to the start. I never threw any out, and I never will. I saved them all and kept them in good condition, because that's what a real collector does! tongue...
