I really think this Destructor/Gender Bender set is the best thing Toynami has released so far. It's simply awesome.

Any shops in the UK taking pre-orders. I have one with Forbidden Planet for the Gender Bender set but they're so unreliable it's untrue.

I guess it's simply because they didn't get the toad in yet.

And yes, the Gender Bender set is now in stock:

I noticed some sites have put the Talking Robot Devil and Tineez Series 2 back up for pre-order.

I bet this is a good sign Toynami is slowing starting to pull it's head out of it's ass.
Morbo doesn't even need a damn kickstarter, just do him in a LE 2000 run, slap 50 bucks on it and make a ton of money Toynami.
It almost sickens me that Toynami can't comprehend that Morbo is on most people's top ten character list. And that 2000 units would sale easily and they could make a hefty profit if they charged 50 bucks.

Look at how fast preorders for the very expensive SW Bender have sold.
Silly toy company.. you invest 20 grand in making 2000 Morbo's and then Make 50 grand back.
It's not rocket science.

I think so too. After waiting so long, it's exellent to see them releasing new figures.  I'm assuming that if the (rest of) the GB/D 2 packs and Morbo figures sell well enough, they'll produce the Robot Mafia, Lrr, and all the rest. Whenever these guys come out, I'm going to buy the heck out of them!!

^^ I think that would be the first and only time anyone ever did that for some action figures lol.

Maybe they'll change their minds about the kickstarter and just release Morbo if the Tineez, Hypnotoad, Robot Devil and Gender/Destructor are being released?

I'm sure he does, they should be out this month.
They were ready to come out in July.. but some unknown delay got them held up a bit.
And honestly from his crappy picture Series 2 doesn't even look good in person.
Morbo's veins look too big.. almost like ears, Fry with heart eyes is dumb unless a swimsuit Leela is released in Series 3, and Nibbler.. just looks cheap to me!  cry

Maybe they'll change their minds about the kickstarter and just release Morbo if the Tineez, Hypnotoad, Robot Devil and Gender/Destructor are being released?

And don't forget that the expensive Shogun Warrior Bender is actually being made!
It's due out in November along with the Talking Robot Devil.

Just ordered Destructor from BBTS.  SO happy to actually be getting this after seeing it for so long....  $96 though - ouch. 

I averaged $10 per figure for the dozen I already have.  An unboxed Zapp & Chef Bender plus a $3 Nudar & a $7 Amy on eBay helped!  This sure blows the average price up!

Is that the UPS guy?   Oh.... wait I just ordered it....

I found that the delivery fee was quite high, and with the US$ > AU$ again the numbers aren't pretty. Adding more things to the order helps balance it out. That's how they get you.

Messaged the guy tonight, said he had it in stock and would ship the next day (tomorrow), so looks like I was the first to buy it from him. The only other one online right now on there is a pre-order, and there is one on Amazon for I think $31 ish (including shipping). But anyway can't wait, thanks CitizenSnips! big grin

Nice, it's almost $200 on amazon.com already.
Nobody on earth (except Toynami higher ups) can get Gender Bender cheaply, even at SDCC it was 69.99, plus how much you paid to get in.
You got it for a good price.

BBTS is processing my Hypnotoad Tineez order. Then, assuming they get Series 2 Tineez soon I can ship my loot. So many Futurama goodies at once, this hasn't happened in a long, loooooong time. smile

Hurray!  The hypnotoads must have come in.  So is the talking Robot Devil a go or not?  They said they were canceling it, right?  EE doesn't have the preorder back up like BBTS does.  Do we have any inside info?

BBTS never took down the Tineez Series 2 like all the other sites, and now it's being released. I think they actually wait until something is officially canned before taking it down.
I believe that strong sales of the 2013 SDCC exclusives, Shogun Bender, and Tineez Series 2 will lead to the talking Robot Devil's release.
Toynami still seems unsure of Futurama, but seems to be giving it a chance again.
Or perhaps they are simply cashing in on the show ending?
Toynami's official stance on the TRD is still.. MAYBE.
And b/c of kickstarter, any figure they have prototypes for could get released.
Lrrr and the Robot Mafia may live after all!!

Anyway, I got the Gender Bender set today from BBTS.. and holy fuck, the box is gigantic!
Yeah, Destructor is big... but the box is so big they still have room for Fnog, Billionaire Bot, Abner Doubledeal, and Rich Little's head in a jar episode specific figures!
LOL!

Woo! Tineez Series 2 are in at BBTS which means all my pre-orders are ready to ship.

Also, BBTS just listed the Hypnotoad coin-bank for pre-order.

What we all need to do is get organized, and each write Toynami a letter, listing the 10 characters we ALL want most and then mail them in.
For some reason letters still make a bigger statement than e-mails do.

We could even take votes and send them the same ten characters on each of our letters, that way they'd go: "Well, damn, maybe we should make these figures! They all seem to want the same ten!"

There are soo many characters that need to be made before the line ends.
I think more combo packs might be the right way to go.
A Robot Mafia 3-pack, Mom's three sons 3-pack, presidental heads in a jar 6-pack, and a Cubert, Scruffy, Planet Express Ship 3-pack deluxe box set would be awesome!
Can you imagine how sweet a PE ship made by Toynami the size of Destructor?
Also a BS, Dwight, Labarbara, and Hermes head in a jar 4-pack  would be nice.

Hell maybe LE combo packs are the only way to go from now on.
How about a Sal, Elzar, Hedonismbot 3-pack  as well?
And why not a Lrrr, Ndnd, Jrrr 3-pack?!?!?!

COMBO PACKS FORVER!!

*Fails to read terms and conditions properly, gets pre-orders shipped separately*

If we're listing our wanted multipacks again; Raoul & Leg mutant

I once suggested it as a build-a-bot, estimated needing 20+ characters to be in scale. Bessie is actually taller than Destructor.

That would be AWESOME!! I'd definitely buy the PE ship pack, even if Bessie was reused from the MAC toy line. The Head in a Jar pack I'd buy the second I saw it. Heck, even mom's sons would be exellent figures!
I really think this is a good plan. We should get it started soon.

That's what I'm saying, Kickstarter Morbo, then move onto some combo packs (1st Robot Mafia b/c the prototypes already exist) to keep the fans happy at least.
Let's see if we can do it together Toynami!
