why is it that i can never find the Fry bendy toy. there is always a Leela or Bender bendy, but no Fry. personally, i would think that Bender would be sold out since he's our lovable rascal, but noooo. anywhere i can find one, other than ebay?

It's because they never made one.

If you get the H.G Blob squishy toy you can get a Fry inside him. That Fry's really bendy  smile

Instead of Fry they made Kiff, which is a good idea because there are already a number of other Fry figures. Plus Kiff suits being scwishy and bendy.

I don't think a fry bendy would be good. That kind of toy should only be made if the character is bendy, like Kif and bender.

They made one of Leela. Also may i say that the Kif bendy is the worst bendy of them all!

I was recently in a comics/collectible shop, where I happened to come across the Leela and Kif bendy toys as well as a bunch of Simpsons figures. Is it just me, or do MG's characters not translate well to 3D? I was especially disappointed with the Leela toy. On the show, Leela is downright beautiful, but the toy was absolutely grotesque, with the eye made to bulge out way too much, and the overbite exaggerated. It looked more like a boob in the middle of her forehead instead of an eye. Also the toy's body is not as "girlish" as Leela appears in the show. Pictures of other Leela figures I've seen on the web are also not to my liking. A shame, as I otherwise would have bought that bendy in a minute. Am I alone in this opinion?

Probably, the original MAC Leela figure looks excellent.

well if that's the best it gets, i'd buy it. since they aren't in that big of production and in that many stores, they are considered rare and collectible. wait down the line, they will be worth it, no matter how grotesque they seem. plus, it is just fun to collect tid bits of futurama stuff. since i'm a jobless 1 yr old, i only have: Futurama-O-Rama, Futurama "SP3K" poster, the region 1 volume 1 set, magazine articles, and 2 tin signs (man/robot brother hood and worry about it tomorrow). i love them all.

I'll make a list:
1. It's got to small feet so it's hard to make it stand
2. You can't really to anything with it. Maybe bend his arm but thats it.
3. He can't even touch his legs with his hands.

The Bender one is great, you should have ordered that!

"bendy" toys are often awful as far as being models of the chara they are supposed to portray.
