Has anyone checked out Cartoon Network's online store yet? They've got a bunch of really cool (yet very expensive) Futurama Giclee's (I'm still not sure what exactly that word means -- they look like posters) and layout drawings there on sale.  The Episode 1 Giclee looks sooooo cool, yet it's like $275 (I guess they're limited editions).

Check them out at the following link ...
 http://search.cartoonnetwork.com/search/?sp-q=+futurama&sp-a=sp10014743


ADDED NOTE: I just found out what Giclee means. For anyone interested ...

Giclee (jhee-clay) - Derived from the french verb gicler meaning to squirt.  The term giclee print typically connotes a certain elevation in printmaking technology. Images are high resolution digital scans printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates. The giclee process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.

Wow, you do learn somethin' new everyday -- I'm gonna take my nap now.  smile

Hmm, that Giclee is $275 and i got one from my brother for Xmas for 5. I don't see why it's worth spending the extra 130 for that however that one's more likely to increase in value.

This was already brought up in this thread.
I would suggest to anyone if they really want that SP3000 poster that they just buy the one sold in the UK. Not everyone can afford the almost 300.00 for the high quality giclee print but the image is so cool it is worth having a lower quality print of it.

Yeah, I got the above poster for just over 3, and it's the main attraction on my bedroom wall. Every night I go to sleep looking at my 3 heros  smile (Well, Zapp's my REAL hero...but anyway)

Sorry ... a day late (actually several days) and a dollar short (or pound, for you UK-ers) on that one. Where did you guys order that more affordably priced poster?

They sell it in the shops (mine may not have been 5, i didn't buy it). I think he got it in Virgin Megastore.

How about a $500 "Bender" Limited Edition Photograph   eek
Talk about expensive, even for a limited photo.

Yeah, I'm not sure who would actually pay that much for that particular photo -- it isn't even that cool looking (heck, I've got the toy, I could take a very similar picture myself and it would be extremely limited)  smile

I did a little research and answered my own question (about where to get that Space Pilot 3000 poster for much cheaper) -- interestingly enough, I looked up the poster at Yahoo and the first link took me to an old thread about the poster here at Peel. That said, the following info was already mentioned in the previous thread, but I'll mention it again, just in case anyone out there is as slow as I am.

For US buyers, you can find that poster at the following link ...

People in the UK will find it here ... http://www.gbposters.co.uk/listall.asp?productTitle=FUTURAMA

What was the poster of, Grim?

(BTW, is your user name from the magazine Grim or like, Grim & Evil?  Just curious. :P)

I haven't been able to locate that poster anywhere in Melbourne, Grim. Also, when you try to order the Futurama Space Pilot 3000 Poster from that GBposters site (above), it states that it can't ship to Australia?!

WHAT THE!? WHere else can we find it? Bendo?

It wouldn't be the magazine since it's not in Australia.

Also, that's pretty stupid, but I won't hold it against you.

No not the magazine (there's a magazine called grim?)

Grim as in dark or "evil" I suppose...
The GB site has a "drop-down" menu that has australia listed in it? WTF?
Either way I'm NOT paying $42 for it

I've just had a look over at CN's store, it's pretty neat. I'm thinking of maybe buying a giclee. And I'm not expecting anyone here to know the answers to these questions, but anyway, I keep wondering to myself:
Is it really worth it?
Does the CN price include framing?
If not, does that mean they'll roll it up?
Is it fade-resistant to the sun?
Is the paper strong, or easily tearable?

I guess they aren't worth there price, but it'd still be really nice to have one. I've never seen one in real life, so it's kinda a guessing game for me. All I know is they're supposed to be really awesome quality     smile

I would absolutely love to have this picture, but there is NO WAY that I can afford the $250 for it.  Does anyone know if a cheaper(and legal) poster version is available anywhere?

Think about how long it takes an animator to draw a layout drawing. Then think about how many layout drawings are in an episode...so it really overpriced...but then again, it is a one off, and it's very, very cool to have. Obviously if you can get it signed by one of the well known animators (Rich Moore etc.), or writer it'll go way, way up in value.

Going slightly off topic, I have a nice Fry drawing done by Matt G, which I obtained after bribing my way into a talk he was giving, and getting him to draw one for me during the autograph session...(I felt so embarassed - everyone else was saying "draw Bart for me", and I held up the queue asking for a Fry)...

Well, now I'm mad. I decided to go for the 'HO HO Holiday Horror' giclee, and I clicked 'Add to Cart', but when I tried selecting a country it was only the USA or Canada, so I'm boned, ah well   frown
