PEE Poll: What do you think of Toynami?
I love them and collect them all.
I really like them and have some.
I like them, but I don't have any.
I don't really care for them.
I'm just here for the free food.

I like them and I have some, but not nearly enough. I just have some of my fave models they've released, a mere three, but they're good in da hood!...

I have Amy and Fry, and I'm content for now.

Amy dropped her raygun though when I moved house, so I wont be seeing it again.  I gave her Fry's Fuck Off Blaster, but she keeps falling over if she raises it too much.  Fry still has his Holophoner though.  His other accessories are so tiny I'll probably lose them.

@Wazn: That's the best name for a gun I think I've heard or read. You mentioned Fry's holophoner too... Do you have any particular methods of getting him to hold it or is it more of a "you WILL hold this or I'll glue it to your plastic molded hands, you bastard!" type thing? I've probably asked this before but I tend to forget things rather easily.

After buying the latest season on Blu Ray I feel suddenly compelled to buy more Futurama figures and of course there are none at my local shop aside from the Talking Bender I snagged last week. Ahhh, I should be patient and order them through my comic book retailer next time I visit if possible to avoid hassle and to get them in an actual decent condition (or hit up eBay/Amazon). The store I typically buy my figures from, if not purchased nearly immediately after arrival, end up looking worse for wear in the box department. I just wonder who the hell has the gall to nearly rip a box to what I'd consider shreds which in turn makes the figure lose all collector's value IMO since I don't know of any collector that doesn't want the box too. But then there's the "when will it arrive if at all" scenario that happens too. But I digress. Talking Bender has proven useful as a drawing reference. big grin

I just hope the line doesn't end. I want to see some Reincarnation figs myself. It was suggested in the latest season's DVD commentaries and I thought to myself "I'd SO buy a set of 1930s-styled black and white Futurama cast if they ever made 'em..."

That, and perhaps Bender from either Law and Oracle or the Action Delivery Force segment of Reincarnation. And this is coming from a chick who only owns Super King Bender from the regular line of figures. Excluding my Tin Bender and Talking Bender... and bobble head Bender... Damn that lovable robot.

S'alright. All is forgiven. My avatar is probably the deceiver aside from my name. I don't exactly display femininity in either respect. Just don't feel too bad for thinking I was a dude; loads of members did that to us women back when PEEL had gender symbols under our avatars....


I used to post fairly frequently but took a sort of break. I kinda pop up from time to time and lurk around more than I post these days.

I probably did, and then forgot. The 'professor' part of your name threw me. Because, of course, there's no way a woman could ever become a professor of anything. Why, the very idea is laughable! big grin

@futurefreak: Totally cool. Maybe I should deface my avatar by placing a huge pink bow on it someplace or make the scanner bar pink. Or, you know... draw myself or something and make it my new avatar. I've had this one since at least 2006. Perhaps it's time for an update. smile

There are female professors and even Dr.'s. (Dr. Cahill, perhaps) .

@Beanoz: Preposterous, and deface such a modest example of a cheesy 80s science fiction show? Bah! I actually haven't really liked pink since I was like twelve. I prefer neutral colors these days oddly enough. The tan to dark brown spectrum I find pleasing unless it's super red-brown. Eww?

@SGB: You're new here, so I'll edumacate you on this: that was a bit of a snarky joke from coldy. smile

I used to have many action-figures. Now I only have a wonderfully-detailed MacFarlane figure of Hellboy, and two small non-posable figures of Cloud and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII.

You know, I'd love to see some super articulated Futurama figures, if only of the main three. I know Bender is kinda iffy since they can easily give him a wire frame but I'd kill to see a Fry and Leela with amazing joints and actual cloth clothes (Toynami Fry accomplished great joints but the others? not so much). Retro-styled toys are still in, and while Futurama is hardly retro I think they'd probably fit that figure style pretty well... or if not that I want a talking Fry and Leela to go along with my Bender. He's so lonely...

Old figure I had of Doctor Octopus had great posable segmented tentacles that would make perfect limbs for Bender.

That's actually a brilliant idea. Seeing as how Bender's arms and legs are sort of naturally segmented, they could just add in a discreet joint to each of those and have it look really slick. I'd only worry about his legs if the joints were made too loosely to support him properly. I've seen too many thin-legged figures like this to not have slight concerns.

Well, the 'tentacle' I'm thinking of was of a 'ball-and-socket' design for each of the joints, reinforced by an internal cable. They were fairly stiff, and if positioned centrally as legs on a figure as symmetrical as Bender I think they'd do the job.

Well, if it's reinforced with cable the concerns I'd have with the figure not standing are taken away. I guess I was picturing something akin to one of those complex joints that peg into each piece of plastic (whatever those pieces are) and can bend really far in any direction (more or less) like many Transformers figures have. I have no clue what those're called though.

@UnrealLegend: You could always try finding a specialty store or comic book store near you. I know you're in Australia and all so I'm not sure where to tell you to look beyond that vague suggestion since eBay is a killer most of the time as is shipping from US to any place out of the country. You might scour the pages now and then because on rare occasions there are some great deals. I certainly suggest against Amazon because people love to jack up prices there on uncommon/rare stuff of any sort.

These are the kind of things I mean. Not the actual figure I had, but you get the idea. You can see they're stiff enough to hold horizontal position out from Ock's body. For Bender, they'd be shorter and therefore more stable.

Action figures are meant to be enjoyed by anyone and everyone. Besides, the boxes for the Futurama line say "14+" and "Adult Collector" on them so I have no shame when buying them. However, I do feel a bit odd sifting through the Star Wars figure aisle... One day damnit, I WILL have a Wedge Antilles.

As do I. Sometimes if lotsa people are on the aisle with me I'll look at my phone as if a text message is there indicating what I'm looking for... I'm a pretty awkward shopper sometimes. I suppose I somewhat care how childish others think I am when I buy these things that are clearly for me as I'm nearly always wearing a geeky t-shirt when I leave my house to shop. As for Wedge, Hasbro pisses me off because I know it's intentional that he's so rare. I know there are figures made of him even in the newer Vintage line that came out last year but heck if I've been lucky enough to nab one. Biggest haul for me was at Toys R Us where I grabbed a sand Trooper and Boba Fett with the tabs still in the cards where they hang on the shelf. I'd have bought the rest of the tabbed ones had I had the money to. Not opening those ever~ I have opened the rest of my figures, even my Target exclusives and I've kept the packages (X-Wing pilot Luke included? Heck yeah I'm opening that!). They're worth less now, but the fact I kept the package is consolation because apparently those are collected as well.

Although with Futurama figures I squeal with delight and promptly run to the checkout and don't give a shit what people think.
