A $5000 reserve, $2000 for the slot machine and $300 postage to within the US. Nice price... (For him)

Jeez! Impressive, but I wouldn't exactly spend $500 bucks, plus shipping, on it.

Looks kinda neat.  No way it's worth that much.

If I was a rich man, it would be great to have in my game room.  But, I'm not rich, and I don't have a game room.  I would like to know what it says.

I'd pay $100 for it, but that'd be it, it's cool, but I would only pay more if it actually looked completely like Bender, and if it walked around. Now that would be awesome.

... and if it cooked things it found on the street, I'd pay even more for it and invite all my friends over..

Me:  Bender's cookin' Roadkill!

If it was associated with the shows production team or the shows promotion department it might be worth that much. But the fact is it was made by a Las Vegas hotel's crappy prop department, and it shows.

i would buy the slot machine if it were cheaper but the bender is crap and the guy selling it says it is the ONLY lifesize bender. Wrong!. i saw one last month in tower records.
Oh and how can that bit of crap cost $10,000 it think whoever made it ripped them off!

Sound about right for a prop actually...it can be surprisingly expensive. The entertainment industry certainly charges a lot (I've spent $10 000 on one stage light), and as well as material costs, you've got labour, design work, paint shop costs etc.

Props (speaking from theatrical experience) cost a load, which is why most people try to beg or borrow them (it wouldn't be unusual for me to pay around $4000 for a simple custom made prop).
