AU$14.95? Sweet. I'll hopefully see them somewhere around here. What kind of a shop is this New Empire? I wonder if they have a shop here in Melbourne...

Toy Memoribillia shop, they got the I-Men in direct from America. So dont just think you an walk into Kmart and buy em.

No they wont have a shop in Melborune coz the only shop is in Perth.

I just did a review of these at www.mwctoys.com  .  I think they're great, and I hope they make some more.

Welcome to PEEL jmurray3.  Thanks for the great review.  I'm going to order a set of these real soon.  The pictures in your review make me want them even more.  The figures look pretty good.

If any of you are toy freaks, check out the rest of the site.  Michael Crawford's site is a good one.

I have 4 of the 5 sets and I agree that these are super cool. I don't think the paint job is as bad as some people are making it out to be but it could have been a little better. I think they were released today (Wednesday) to comic book stores here in the US so everyone hurry out and pick them up already!!

I think creating a flat-chested Leela figure should be a federal crime.

Anyone know if it's possible to buy a complete set of all 10 figures, or whether you just have to buy all 5 sets? To be honest I'd like em all, but Forbidden Planet are charging 10 for 2 which isn't particularly bad but 50 for the set is a bit out of my price range.

I got them as a whole set for $35 plus tax and shipping.  The total was like $46 I think.

I just received all 5 sets of two figures from eBay yesterday, so thought I would give my opinion on them.

Firstly, I can't get over how great these figures are. I wanted them primarily because they are numerous and small, so can decorate my new flat all over the place. But these things are great! Admittedly, Leela looks a little strange with a flat chest, and Fry looks damn weird from the front but that's a problem with making Fry 3D and therefore a problem with all the figures made of him, and his character model in the game.

The robots, unsurprisingly, steal the show. I'm not so keen on Bender's expression, he looks a bit too cute. Aside from him, the robots are all great. Calculon actually looks like he has a big ego, and Url is the only character to come with an accessory: his riot stick. I expected to love the Robot Devil figure, and rightly so, this guy is very well modelled and I only wish they would make one about the same size as the Bendy models I own!

A special mention has to be made to Roberto though. Whoever designed his model should be given a raise, definetely. His head really does stick out significantly from his body, and his neck is just the right proportion to the rest of his body. If only he came with a stabbing knife!

One word of warning: Professor Farnsworth, and I believe Dr Zoidberg (haven't opened Dr Z yet) have lab coats. They are pieces of rubber which sit on the shoulders of the model. Zoidberg's one looks good, as as far as I can tell it is closed at the front and so shouldn't move much. However, the Professor's really looks terrible and as soon as you touch it moves around a lot. I realise that Farnsworth without his lab coat might looks a bit strange, but I'm sure there must have been a better way to make it.

This is the first time I've ever bought really collectable figures in my life, and I really hope that Toynami decide to go ahead and make a Series 2 of Futurama I-Men.

My score: 8/10 - points lost for Farnsworth's screwed lab coat and the fact that if they were a couple of inches taller the figures would be even better.

If you live in the UK like me and want the whole set, I recommend this guy. All 10 for just over 30!
