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 just ordered an extra Nixon's head and podium, plus got an extra taller podium with two mics (no idea what line that is from). I got it just for the extra stand to give to one of the other characters...but now that I will be receiving an extra Nixon, dammit, I might do what I sought out NEVER TO DO and look for an encore Bender, because EvilPDA has been teasing me with what he is doing with the figures and I want to try to put his head on him.

How did you do that, anyway? Is there a hole on the bottom of his jar that easily slips on Bender's midsection? I haven't looked.

And THEN I will have an extra Bender head. And I am going to look for that kid toy car I had around here, if I still have it. So everything is used.

Oh, I got some of the I-MEN in this week so I will take pics and upload those too (they are so pretty in the package, I kinda cringed taking them out).

OMG, KIT!!!!!! Only one Futurama Knight Rider crossover toy was made, ever!!!!!

I'd pay $4000.00 for that alone!!!!!

First off, it's KITT  with two T's (Knight Industries Two Thousand). I'm a stickler for spellings, heh. KITT was even my avatar from 2006-2012 (and would've stayed the same had people ID'd me as a woman with it a bit better laff). With this in mind you see why I have so boldly singled out your post with rapt interest. Do tell what exactly you were talking about, as I'm easily confused. I'm not sure where you saw this if it was in the super large auction... I saw a Kif, but nothing vaguely Knight Rider included. I'd adore owning such an item surely. Knowing that Hot Wheels is releasing KR stuff, and Minimates has too, it's not entirely impossible for a Futurama parody or license of some sort I suppose.

Zoidy: The guy revised the auction to correct Kif's incorrectly spelled name (perhaps he felt foolish being called out on the internet?) and dropped the auction a penny. You can tell because it says "Last Revised x time". Lol. Now it's a real bargain!


EvilPDA: Using SuperKing's head for your Burglar Bender is a brilliant idea, well thought. Also I am VERY surprised that you only have 8 figures. The way you talk about all your ideas, I was sure you had at least one wall cabinet of just Bender laff

I don't know whether we should be discussing stuff like that in this thread or "What do you have?" thread though, since this one may be better for new releases, and rants on the delays for new releases haha.

Edit: I've cleaned up this thread a bit to keep it more ontopic big grin

See what's happen future uv'e split the group uv'e divided us up into people who are anal retentive and people who don't know the difference, nah Im jus kidding well when I posted my pics I too was in two minds as to wonder if this was the right topic but I decided because I was talking about reprinting and editing tha I would be safe posting on here, Im a lil new to all this forum milarki so if I am over stepping boundaries please let me know and I shall correct my self, talking of many benders it only occurred to me the other day my plan was to have about 20 benders I was gonna buy them all when they first released the encore benders when they were still cheap but I got made redundant and forgot now Im struggling to find them reasonably priced could do with toynami re-releasing them but I don't wanna start that topic off and have a which hunt on my ass lol

maybe it's been moved back because they don't have stock, which is lame cuz it's a hook, line, sinker...toynami, please..for the love of Allah, release some NEW figures, not re-releases.

on another note, how're those bender variants coming along? I've been contemplating buying another super king and stealing your idea for a thief Bender, but after watching that watchin that episode, maybe time should keep it the same. as it's a purplish black.

Things have grinded to a halt at the moment, it's the usual story of money problems, I was also thinkin maybe leaving it purple because on the episode thas almost the same colour but I also thought painting it black would make it stand out, I've got time to decide smile

I broke down and got the SDCC Santa Bender & Robot Santa, and SDCC Alternate Universe Fry & Leela. Someone listed some cheaper with minor imperfections on the box, and since I am going to display them anyway, I got them. I am trying to see if there is any noticeable difference between this Santa and the BAB one but I am not seeing any (which I knew already, I just wanted Santa Bender) - did anyone else notice anything? I haven't taken them out of the plastic yet because I still need to take photos.

The alternate universe duo is okay, I just wish Toynami had given them accessories (which before I ordered I knew they didn't come with, but there are so many "extra" accessories from others I figured I could give them to 'em).

the only difference in the BAF santa, and the SDCC exclusive is the arm with the Tommy gun and the spike for the top of his hat. also, I was kinda disappointed that Tue Santa bender didn't come with a plastic hat opposed to the cloth one it came with.

Yeah, I was kinda surprised by that as well. The first thing I thought was, well, I could have found a hat like that at the craft store and put it on him...

I'd never get around to painting the figures though (and certainly not that exact) so partly why I caved and got it.

I did notice the hat on the Robot Santa was just the plain one. I need to reglue the tommy gun to the arm, I broke it a while back bah.

I have to say, looking at these, and then the Encore line Toynami has put out (like the Bender I just purchased for the extra Nixon head I got), they've gotten really lazy with the paint jobs. I am a picky buyer, I look at them all when purchasing in person to see which has the least flaws - but when I was looking at the Encores, man, they all had problems - uneveniess, subtle smudging, like damn, you pay that price for a figure at least have it decent looking enough and not looking like some $3 toy...

Hmmmm I have to say I've never noticed imperfections but then again I wouldn't have a clue what I was looking for, I don't think I should look either because it would prob bug the crap out of me, when u open your Santa and bender can u tell me if the plastic Santa hat would fit on a bender without having to cut off his antenna? I know it's daft but I'd consider buying the Santa just for the hat.....

the cloth hat will fit on any figure.

and I noticed flaws in the alternate universe leela I've got..but they're painted better than the MAC figures that's for sure.

ah yes the cloth hat will fit on any figure but i was under the impression that santas hat was plastic, a lil off topic but i just checked destructor on play.com and it now says 49.99 i cant remember was it 55.99 back in april?

Also i need two encore benders i think they were series 2 does anyone know where i can get them from im having no luck with ebay....

Ok Plan B can anyone please tell me, do chef benders eyes fit in all other benders head (Excluding Wooden Bender of course)

150, this is a serious test of my self restraint!

Also, i would hope the figure is a combination of the two figures in the pictures above, the size of plain bender with the detail of the smaller one

I'm so glad I'm not the only person here who's overly anal and meticulous about the quality/ in inspecting the figures and getting your money's worth. My Talking Bender has a so-so paint app, not the worst but could've been a tad better and I got him anyways because he was the only one available to me in-store. These figures sadly are becoming what I'd consider "buy in-store only", meaning I'd never trust Toynami enough to blindly buy one online, merely praying the paint apps are done with little to no flaw. It's really a shame too because they're so beautifully sculpted (... with no articulation in elbows/knees [sans Fry], which is a different rant). If I knew how to customize figures I'd buy up some especially sloppy figures and redo them myself, maybe add joints too.

what i never got about toynami was, they got the original MAC molds but didn't really use them to their full potential. they used nibbler from these accessories but didn't include a litterbox, they used most of benders aswel. why didn't they use the articulation from the original leela is beyond me. i mean, she's at an awkward stance so they coulda changed how her hips were but the toynami version is sh!t compaired to the MAC one. atleast with the MAC one you can bender her arms and her hairs the right color. oh and the chef bender is waaay cooler imo than the toynami one. just the removable hat and cape make it. they should totally do another planet express ship, i'd like to see how toynami takes a whack at it, maybe they could make a 6 inch one and use the same blisters. exclue the aliens tho, unless theres room.

i don't really know if my figures have defects in the paint. well i know my alternate universe leela has a flaw on her left leg. but since i haven't opened but a blue zoidberg, and the robot santa and bender sets, i won't know until i get the perfect display case and eventually opened all of them to find out. but i'm with you on the 'buy in-store only' alas, i've onle ever seen four futurama figures at a store in my city. so it's not like i can just go out and buy 'em, sadly; i have to go online and take a risk. bullocks if you ask me.

I would guess the reasoning behind not using the MAC Leela arms was because Toynami went with a sleeker look to the figures, less cuts in the sculpt.  Fry is the one exception.  It's a bummer that they got the hair color wrong on Leela.  They got it right with Clobberella.  If they re-released Leela, I would guess she'd sell fairly well because many of us would pick her up IF she had the right hair color this time.  Giving us Fry and Farnsworth again is an odd choice to me.

 I'm still holding out hope for new figures!!!  I know it's a long shot though.  hmpf

i'm with you, this waiting has gotten out of controll. if they do release the mafia, lurr and morbo those'll be the last toynami products i'll ever buy...and maybe i'll cop out and get a destructor but if there isn't a gender bender theres really no point in having such a huge figure.

toynami, may your company collapse. i am no longer a fan of your business.
