There is a seller on the bay who has listed them with their rarities. Here it is.

According to them:

5/40 Bender
5/40 Nibbler
5/40 Zoidberg
2/20 Fry
2/20 Leela
2/20 Zapp
1/20 Lrrr
1/20 Mom
1/20 Morbo
1/20 Sal
1/20 Slurms

Looks like they already sold out of robot devil, because I remember seeing him there before. I think he had a 1/20 rarity or thereabouts too (maybe 2/20); he couldn't have been there rare if you guys pulled 2 or 3 in your cases.

I'm glad they seem to be making the rarity a bit less of a factor. Last time Robot Devil was way to hard to get. Speaking of Robot Devil, the six inch version is coming out on October 3rd according to the KR website...

Wow, that looks awesome! I really like the design of his Box! It shows the difference between the Original Version and the Stylized Version very well.

I just picked up my Robot Devil today at the Kid Robot store in Soho. It's pretty sweet. If anyone happens to be in the NYC area they are having a "buy one, get one free" sale all day today on blind boxes.

I completely forgot that they'd made a set of keychains. Haven't even seen any in shops which is a bit strange! I ought to get at least one so I can have a radical dude on my keys.

I think 50 bucks is a very safe bet. All the other 6 inch KidRobot figures were that price.

Hi guys, been wanting to share some Kidrobot Futurama customs I've added to my collection recently.

Came across an eBay auction, tracked down the customizer, had a bunch of fun conversations shooting around ideas and in the end I received eight custom figures!  :D

So you've got the Universe B foursome, which is what I'd originally seen him do. He also had done a Zapp in a pink uniform, which is not from the show, but just for fun and I liked it.

And from there, we came up with ideas for two more Zapps - his dress uniform and his bathrobe 'welcome to the Lovenasium' look.

Lastly, we took a stab at a glow-in-the-dark Fry, which would be from the Slurm Loco episode if memory serves.

I say "we", but I had just had the easy part of throwing out ideas!  :p The hard work was done by this great guy named Ricky, who goes by the username excorphy over at the Kidrobot forums.

So if you like his work, look him up over there and tell him. Maybe he has time to do more...

For more pictures of these babies, check out my album here.

I'm loving that Hedonism Bot! I have a question about him, though; Do they only produce the figure in the larger size, or do they also make a more standard medium size? I want to know because if I get one, I'd like it to be as in-scale with the Toynami figures as possible, seeing as that line is practically dead at this point.

This wave looks pretty awesome to me. I'm definitely going to try to purchase Hyperchicken and Roberto. It's cool to see that this line's producers are willing to make a variety of main and secondary characters.

So we've got:

Super King (Bender)
Clobberella (Leela)
Hermes
Hyper-Chicken
Elzar
Amy
Calculon
Roberto

And maybe:

Hedonismbot ?
Donbot ?

My reaction is...

A big cheer!

Kidrobot gives us a second season. It hardly seemed to be in doubt mind you, but nevertheless you never know with toylines, especially with the show's cancellation.

A half-cheer!

Lots of good characters, but I'm not a big fan of the New Justice Team taking up 25% of the slots. If there was going to be a group, would have much rather had the Robot Mafia.

A loud boo!

No Farnsworth? Nooo! It's pretty cruel not to complete the core Planet Express crew as a third series is hardly a given (though quite possible).

It's also a bummer not to get Scruffy. Really should have had him before Sal and it's disappointing he's not in this series.

Futurama fans really need to support the Kid Robot line. Toynami has killed theirs just like MAC, RocketUSA, Dark Horse, RIX, NJ Croce, etc... This is all we have left and you figure it has to be fragile with the show being off the air.

I think the lack of Farnsworth and Scruffy is a good sign to be honest. That would lead me to believe that they are holding a few core characters back for a third series. I think only including one of the three Robot Mafia members reinforces this theory as well. Let's hope series two sells well.

I am impressed with Series 2. The keychains I didn't get because they look exactly the same as the originals. With the show deceased though, I find less reason to get into this merch like I used to :hmpf: Also, that finale really pissed me off :mad:

Last year, I got a Fry, a Leela and Mom figures from the Kidrobot store (almost completed the sweep!  :hmpf:).

I'll say, I was fairly lucky.

Sure, it's a good sign in that it means Kidrobot is saving some core characters for a future series. But that's the trouble with toylines, they always hold key ones back for the future, but then the line ends, as all lines do, and we end up with holes.

Scruffy aside, the Planet Express core group is really just six characters, so they really should have got them all done within these first two series of 24 figures. I'll support Kidrobot and get this second series, but if we don't get to a third and Farnsworth, I'll be pissed.

Really disappointed with the choice of characters.   The only one I really care about getting is Amy.

They should have had: Hedonismbot, Hermaphrobot and the Crushinator.    I would have also loved the Countess but I think she's too obscure.   Fanny would have been nice too or Angelyne.  An Amazon would have been cool too.   What Kidrobot should do is a spinoff called Bots, and Aliens.   I would have had three series: humans (meatbags), non-meatbags (robots) and green meatbags (aliens).
