Anime Shogun Warrior Bender was presumably dependant on the success of the regular Shogun Warrior Bender, which was presumably cancelled

Im confused.  Has anyone seen the new pics of the hypnotoad plush on entertainmentearth.com?  They look nothing like the original one.  Did they switch it up?

let's all hope that's the plan.

tbh, I never liked the plushies or the tineze. infact i'll put my money on those lines being the nails in the coffin for the figures.

Check out my post in the Futurama Plush thread. EE is actually using the correct pic on their site but NOT on the e-bay page, almost everyone is using the wrong stock image photo which is misleading. I received my plush on Monday, I will take pics today and update you on how it looks.

Ok, uploaded pics of it in the Plush thread.

Yeah, I think they really missed the mark on that one. I would have preferred the cuter one with the incorrect colors than this. I am quite the disappoint mad

Yeah, and there is really no point in supporting Toynami now.

I say if this looks like crap to you (now that we know it's final look) and you've got it pre-ordered, just go ahead and cancel it.

Shame.. b/c if I was it get one.. this would be it.

Well I wrote this a few hours ago and looks like they responded immediately:

I just received the Futurama Hypnotoad plush, I am disappointed that it looks nothing like the stock image people are using that are from your promotional advertising - www.toychestnews.com/catalogimages/STK_IMAGES/STK500001-520000/STK518170.jpg

Instead it looks like this:
http://i.imgur.com/Apu5WsL.jpg

:/

That first picture should really be updated...
(I own all the plush and almost all your futurama figures, btw)

They replied:
Quote
Toynami
Thanks for making us aware of this, Randi. We've made this
adjustment and any further promotional material will now have the correct images. Sorry for any trouble this has caused you.

EvilPDA is right - it helps to be polite wink (not that I would be mean, anyway). So we'll see if that first pic gets updated, and if any places that already used the old image actually update theirs (unless it's something where once Toynami changes it, it affects all the listings, like on the bay. I'm not sure how that works exactly, whether people are choosing from a catalogue of stock images or just copy pasting what is out there).

Actually all I said was that they were a terrible company for showing us their products and being too lazy to find an appropriate outlet to deliver said products.

Obviously they didn't like the truth.

Damnit.

I'd nearly secured a Gold Bender for about 110, but as we closed the deal (near enough) he decided to sell it to someone else frown.

Frustrating, I know the Gold Bender isn't part of the "official line", still is pritty awesome, and now looks like the only one that will ever be done.

It sorta is... actually. It just.. kinda cheated.

They slapped golden mac Benders into rushed Toynami boxes to keep fan interest up for their new line they got the rights and old molds too for the cons.

I think of it as Toynami Futurama toy zero.

do you even know what you're talking about?

theres nothing 'rushed' about the packaging. and of course they'd use an already existing molded bender. there's only 1,000 of em anyways. why opt to spend when it's already there.

I actually prefer the MAC benders over the toynami benders. their bigger.

Jabalong, I saw on facebook Toynami hid your comment that I liked lol. Toynami had posted a the cover art of Bender from the DVDs and asked if anyone knew who the artist was, and jabalong responded something to the effects of why bother posting pics of Futurama when they killed the toy line... laff

And then a few minutes later they promptly put up a pic of the Kif plush and a link to buying it on EE. Haha.

In regards to futurama related issues, I was just about to comment on that exact picture on Facebook but because I couldn't read the comment already there I didn't want to copy someone else, I shall go ahead and 'fill my boots' in a Bruc.... You know what sod it Im just gonna comment.

Also had we not settled this MAC vs Toynami argument surly no can honestly like the chunky inaccurate mouldings of the MAC figures, it occurred to me yesterday if they are happy using old moulds and releasing benders why can't they do gender bender it's not like it's a completely new mould they already have destructor too

I like the MAC bender n fry over toynamis.

and the gender bender is a new mold. its not like they're just throwing a gender bender plastic apron over a reissued bender.

Toynami wouldn't have gone as far as showing us the packaging for the Gender Bender/Desctuctor if they didn't plan on giving it to us this year.  Are they ending the regular line?  Yes.  Robot Devil? Yes.  Notice they didn't show up to the toyfair with them.  Just the plushes, tineez and the destructor set.
