One of them looks like a Cyclophage skull...

Woah, 2 Cyclophage references in the space of two episodes, 7ACV16 and 7ACV17.

I'm assuming this is still from "T.: The Terrestrial", the damn Tumblr posts never say which episode what they are posting is from. :mad:

The skull behind the aquarium might also belong to this gentleman:

(Maybe even a "last second addition" because of Harryhausen's death?)

Love it. But why isn't his head also encased in carbonite?

Neat! I love the details and the fire amy is holding
Looks like fry's head is just copy+paste on that block, looks a bit off... I don't think this will be t.:the terrestial... I'd rather say 'the inhuman torch' for some reason...

Might be the beginning of a process to free him.
Also, to increase the "Ouch" factor should the block drop to it's front.
(Which -with Fry's face open- is rather likely to happen :D )

Most countdown images feature plot relevant details. Yet -as classic sci fi elements are often used as single gags- I wonder wether that scene is also one of those throwaway gags.

I like how professor and Amy are going to deforst Fry like it's not a big deal.

Also, to increase the "Ouch" factor should the block drop to it's front.
(Which -with Fry's face open- is rather likely to happen :D )
Yeah, that should definitely happen.

I wonder if Fry is able to speak at that moment: "C'mon, hurry up now!"

Strap in the guitar is attached oddly to neck rather than to body. I know, unnecessary point.

So, was the picture of Fry in carbonite from "T.: The Terrestrial" or "Forty Percent Leadbelly"?

Yay, Lee Supercinski confirmed that the still of Fry in carbonite is from "Forty Percent Leadbelly"! :D

Technically it's a dobro and is often played on the lap with a solid steel piece used on the frets.

As demonstrated e.g. by this gentleman here:
http://www.martinsmusikkiste.de/artikelimages_klein/xxl_206827.jpg

Technically it's a dobro and is often played on the lap with a solid steel piece used on the frets.

Little additional info for the non-muscians:
The instrument itself is a resonator guitar. "Dobro" is the name of a registered trademark held by the Gibson Guitar Corporation, used for a paticular design of resonator guitars.
(Yep, that one was nitpicky ;) )

I'm assuming that's Bender's folk singing hero who has been in jail 30 times.

I think you're right Danny, as a robot with a thumb it looks like he will be able to play guitar...
He looks pretty creepy to me, also: are those handles on his shoulders? dafuq

I can picture him being in jail. Strange name, is it artist name or what he's known in prison?

« #180 : 05-12-2013 15:19 »

Probably his name as an artist.

The name "Big Caboose" might be fitting for some travelling folk musician with certain hobo-like qualities.
The combination of "Railway" and "Music" made me think of "Starlight Express", but I guess he will not be used for such a reference. Wrong kind of music, and the design also does not look glamorous/colourful enough.

I like how in the above picture Amy's big goggles are still smaller than the Prof's giant glassess, that poor half mad hlaf insane blind as a bat man.

Also Big Caboose seems very classic in his design, and that's a good thing!

I like the details on this one, also benders jacket(which I think they forgot to outline on one sleeve...)

The part between the wrist and the guitar, right?
Hm...guess it's fine, the outline is just covered.

With production stopped, I would guess it won't be.
