Suddenly I have an opinion on Proposition Infinity. Hope she fairs better than her namesake, though.

It's a Solar Helium Mine from "The Inhuman Torch" episode.

Amazing! That simply looks so cool.
"Bender becoming a famous firefighter" - perhaps not so cool.

Doors/Gates for Starships usually feature only one door in sci fi.
(e.g. Space Balls).
It just looks cooler when a Starship flies by, instead of slowly creeping through one door, waiting, with the door behind it closing, and the other airlock door starting to open.

That is seriously fucking cool. :love:

Also, I got more of a Death Star vibe from it.

Aw, so beautiful. I always love how light is animated in Futurama. I peered closely at the mechanical contents of that orb, but couldn't quite make much sense of it. It would be cool to see it in more detail when the episode airs.

Hm, I guess. It looks like there's platforms for people to work on though. I must say it does look very cool and well detailed.

I hope "The Inhuman Torch" surprises us like the other "character-gets-a-new-job" episode, "Law and Oracle"

With the inclsuion of the helium mining thing, it should have a crazy/fun sci-fi twist. Plus the PE ship kitted out like a firetruck in the preview clip thing looked really awesome.

If the show comes back again, they need to do an episode about Leela becoming a paramedic to complete the set. :laff:

The professor looks terrible if you ask me... Bender's design in so awsome however! (and Nibbler so cute^^) I love how bender has a water-thingy(brandblusser...) build in his hand :laff:

I don't like that they made Nibbler dalmatian-looking.

Futurama usually sports an art deco like 30s retro sci fi look. The animation obviously benefits from the smooth surfaces.
The "Death Star Mine" sports a rather "kit bashed" look as incoporates in Star Wars, together with the "realistic industry" being established in Sci Fi with the first Alien movie.

I like those outfits. Hopefully this won't be all we see of Nibbler.

Hang on, isn't there supposed to be a Nibblonian episode this year? Or was that abandoned or something?

Does anyone else think that Nibbler's third eye is way too high? It should be lower.

"Bender as Firefighter"
Aww, I wanted for Bender to be classified as a firetruck.

I'm loving Nibbler as a Dalmation, but I agree with UrL, the third eye is way too high.

I also agree that the eye is too high, as well as being too...erect, maybe? I feel like it usually appears floppier.

I'm looking forward to seeing Dalmatian-Nibbler, too; I thought "Nibbler on the Roof" was funny in Overclockwise, so I'm excited to see Nibbler outside of the roles of pet or ambassador again.

Indeed he would.

Is water going to come from him or is it gong to be like FoaB where he hooks one arm up to a tap and it comes out the other?

Good question.
I was rather thinking of AtPH: When Bender is mistaken for a something (canon), he gains that device's abilities.

I think the Professor's pants and belt need to be hiked up one more shirt button. They're practically at 106-year old height.

The Futurama cast got word that their show is cancelled so turned themselves yellow to try and fit into The Simpsons...

Well, that "gold" coating could be the Professor's "antiheat" technology.
Quote from: DXC
We have an episode called "The Inhuman Torch," in which people have begun mining helium from the sun, thanks in part to the Professor's antiheat technology.

Was just about to edit my previous post and say that. :p

But wouldn't the helium mine be covered in it too?

I love how the PE ship is coated in gold in the background too. :D
