Anyone own one of these? How are they in terms of quality, etc...

I've only got the URL one, but that's really awesome, and I'm sure the Shiny Bender one is up to the same quality  cool

I've got all the Rocket USA wind ups EXCEPT for the bright and shiny Bender, so I can't comment. I'll get it one day though.

I found out yesterday that my super awesome girlfriend ordered me one a while ago and it should be in my anxious little hands in a couple weeks.  big grin

I think the bright and shiny is really cool too but if you had to limit yourself to one Bender wind-up I would probably rank them in this order:
Gender Bender
Bright and Shiny
Don't get me wrong I like the bright and shiny one but the other two are more specific to the show. The Gender Bender is just a fun one and it came directly from the show whereas the bright and shiny was more of a cool idea on the part of RocketUSA.
One good thing about the bright and shiny though is that the paint on it is better than the regular Bender. The regular Bender has some rippling in some parts that makes it look like it is wrapped in plastic. The Gender Bender and the bright and shiny do not have this problem as far as I can remember.

How much does one of these cost?

Depends on where you get them. You can find some pretty good deals on eBay right now although I cannot remember seeing any bright and shiny Bender's listed recently. If you go to an online store though you will probably end up paying full price which is somewhere between 19.99 and 24.99 depending on the store. Top prices on eBay tend to be around 14.99 and less.
It seems like I remember these as being an exclusive type toy implying that there were less of these made than the previous wind-ups. Does anyone know anything about this? This may explain it not showing up on eBay for quite some time now.

I think a cool variant of the BNSB Would be the Golden Bender from the Farnsworth Parabox

I agree Beezlebender but when these were made that episode had not yet aired nor do I think was it even in development. Now if some enterprising individual wanted to start making customs...
