I remember that somebody posted a link to an auction on Ebay for a real life Bender figure which should have been for the Futurama pinball machine.
They wrote that they canceled the machine because the show was canceled.

Or am I hallucinating again?

Adam, you're close.  That was actually a slot machine (as in gambling) I think.

I guess that would be cool. But they would probably only make one, so no chance of playing it.

I would play it in the arcade, but I would never buy any pinball machine.

Some ideas I had when thinking about this:

Ball ramp (on some machines there will be a big ramp that the ball will roll around on, usually right back to the flippers) looks like a transport tube.

Hit a plastic Fry (or a hole in front of him) in front of a plastic Cryo tube and he'll slide backwards into it for bonus points.

Ever seen the "Episode I: The Phantom Menace" machine?  On that one you can activate little mini games on a screen in front of you, where you can hit the ball at it and destroy targets.  There could be a PE ship bit where you would shoot various ships in space or use the flipper buttons to steer around asteroids.  When the screen is not being used for a mini game it could play little episode clips as you play.  As well, when you start it would play a peice of the opening theme, and when neither clips or mini-games are being used it could display your score as the "saying" under the Futurama logo.

Quote ideas: (all from the shows)
Starting the game:
Fry: And that's how you play the game
Nixon: Fire, fire!

Losing a ball/end game:
Old New York kid: you stink dude!
Fry: Ow, that hurt!
Fry: If you think bad luck can defeat me, then you don't know my name is Phillip J...
Bender: We're boned!
Leela: Gentlemen, we are royally boned.

Zap: What did we just blow up?
Kif: The hubble telescope.


Any other ideas?

I've said before that I think they should make a Futurama pinball table, it would rule! And if I had the money, I'd definately buy one.

Those are some clool ideas, DotheBartman. I think it would be really awesome to have a Suicide Boothe where you lose the ball  cool

I didn't mean actually model it. Just draw a detailed picture of what it would look like.

This is a great idea. I'd draw a model, but "Whadda I look like, a guy who's not lazy?". Actually, maybe I'll try drawing one...

That idea would get me to play pinball.  I haven't played pinball in years, I guess I lost interest or something, but if they had a Futurama pinball machince I spend a whole bunch of quarters playing that.
