maybe futurefreak will find a blue car big yet small enough to finish that project. here's to nothing.

Haha, I have seen similar but not exact cars in the past, but they were way too expensive for what they would be used for.

What kills me is, I have a blue car, like from burgerking or whatever, a rubber-like toy I had as a child. I never threw it out, so I know it is around somewhere, hiding, because it knows it would be perfect for what I want to use it for. Right scale and everything I think! So actually I had searched for one of those toys online in the past to look for once, but alas never came up with anything. I stopped regularly looking for the toys months ago though, as I kinda pretty much acquired everything I wanted to at the time. I'm still tempted to buy your blue zoidberg off of you, but what keeps me back is that *someone* here (who has not posted in a long, long time) had promised me one of those, but ended up selling them all and claiming he did give me one... no no Actually if I recall, Otis P Jivefunk bought my piece from him tongue

Mating Zoidberg I could do without. I just like the blue guy because I have alternate fry and leela.

Can ANYONE repaint a kidrobot bender to be golden? I saw one on the bay once, never again did I see it. I refrained from bidding because it was already at $30 and I figured the guy would be selling a lot of these because it's a good idea, but he never ended up relisting it...

Golden bender reprint you say? If only someone on here knew how to do it and had the materials to make it work.... It's funny I was looking at kidrobot lasts night and saw bender but wasn't too keen on him, not the thought of an alternate kidrobot bender does intrigue me... (Rubs claws together)

The weirdest thing is that only a few days ago they said they'd still be making more Futurama figures.

Toynami: Sorry, but at this time the Destructor and Gender Bender Deluxe Set is no longer being released. And all pre-orders for this product will be cancelled.

Welp.. that's it... I'm done.

I wouldn't be surprised if Destructor-Gender Bender gets canned, only because Toynami excels at raising expectations then dashing them inexplicably.

Honestly though it's madness. Destructor sold out almost immediately and skyrocketed on the secondary market. So why cancel a rerelease that's already at the pre-order stage?

If Toynami thinks it can make more money selling crap like Tineez and Plushes, no wonder the company is struggling. Bunch of muppets, letting the line die with great stuff still on the table.

Toynami: Due to a combination of late approvals, factory changes, timing, and that ALL our prototypes have been deemed to expensive to produce, the Futurama line will be ending it's great run.

They did announce on Monday, that Series 10 is canned. And in the comments, they said " for the time being we don't anticipate to be doing anymore Futurama figurines.". Although there will be some Comic Con Exclusives!

Still though, they did it again! And there isn't going to be a talking Robot Devil either. Just wow.......

Great play on words. That doesn't mean it will be Futurama stuff. I really hope it is, but Toynami just hates us all!!!!!

Yes, I agree with this. I've never really seen any interest in the tineez, and well the prices on ebay/amazon speak for the line's popularity.

... So now that the figure line is cancelled (& the show), I wonder if we can expect to see the prices for these figures heading up in price due to rarity ... or down due to (possible) waning interest?

What's everyone think?

Hopefully if the show gets picked up by another network, Toynami will reignite interest in the line.

Really? You come on here with these "quotes" and no source or them and then get all butt hurt when we don't believe you?

I don't think we're the pathetic ones here.

Man, Toynami is pathetic. How long does it take to decide whether you are going to sell something that you've long since prototyped, boxed up and have already put out for preorders?

Does it mean that preorders have been disappointing? Don't see how that could be with Destructor. I emailed, BBTS to ask why no preordering yet on this one. Their answer was that they weren't aware of the product and thanked me for the heads-up.

So I don't know WTF is going on, but seems to me like Toynami is dropping the ball somewhere here. Not surprising, since it seems like they have dropped every kind of ball possible with this line over recent years. It's become a perfect case study in how not to manage a toyline.

Anyway, no point in ranting about it anymore. Think I will just go back to ignoring all this. And if anything ever comes up for preorder on BBTS, I'll order it. Otherwise, it was a good run, until it all went pear-shaped. Just like the show really...

Hmm, I've pre-ordered Gender bender/destructor to at least show support... if they cancel it, it doesn't matter as entertainment earth doesn't charge your CC until they ship the item.

Hopefully they come through with one last set. Although all I need now to complete my set is Zoidberg (like everyone else lol) smile

I really don't know what to think in regards to this Toynami fuss. One minute they're not doing any more.... Then there "will be comic-con exclusives".... Now it looks like Gender Bender still might see a release.

Hopefully that means that Morbo and Lrrr can be released (as they're the cheaper Vinyl figures). GOD how I hope they release Morbo and Lrrr.

Yeah, they don't have a clue what they're doing. Their PR team were probably only told the "Series 10 or Robot Mafia" portion had to be posted and anything else is them guessing.

So, you won't pre-order at all in other words. We can only be sure when a website says "in stock".

why would you want to pre order from toynami?

they OBVIOUSLY have no intrest in futurama anymore. so let the second hand market gain on their loss.

sad, if they imvested 15k into new zoidberg molds they'd make a come back.

I think robo mafia and scruffy are in higher demand than zoidberg, they'd be better investing in them, perhaps they should do preorder only exclusives for the hardcore then at least they know how much they'd be making

Yeah at this point, putting out what they've shown off would be the only intelligent thing to do rather than moulding an already released (three times) character.

If they wanted to be smart they'd release a proper Golden Bender.

the only difference is a plastic hat and apron.

also, hes got a tiny bender.

tho I too haven't seen him. are you wanting MIB, or loose?

Loose would be fine if it had the accessories. I'm aware that it's the same as the other Bender, but I'm really only interested in the accessories.

I plan to put the chef hat/apron on a normal Bender to make a Chef Bender, as in when he is the ship's cook rather than what he wore when he was on the Iron Cook. Seeing as it's doubtful that we may ever see any more figures period, I'd like to squeeze everything I can out of the line.
