Correct, Toynami announced that their final Futurama release would be the Talking Golden Bender from July's SDCC.

As for the Alternate Universe Fry and Leela, your best bet would be ebay. Not sure what the price ranges would be but I think it originally sold at the 2009 SDCC for around 40 bucks. It was a limited run of 2000 so I'm guessing you would probably have to pay at least twice that price now.

Ah okay I checked ebay, together they cost $125.00 which is a problem for me because i'm in the middle of building a gaming PC, and restoring a motorcycle.. are the figures rare? or should i hold off and not worry because i don't want to come back a year or so later to check and find out it's almost impossible to get any.. what do you think?

Usually you will find them quite often for a reasonable price far below $100. They are not very popular. You just have to wait a while until they pop up on ebay.

@mickywinz, dude that's an awesome collection! did you just raid ebay? or get them elsewhere? hah sick display case!

@Nibbler_04, i've only been seeing the two figures together for around $125.00 or even $200.00 I think i'll collect other things such as posters and i've been hoping to find the Futurama game cheap for Xbox but not much luck so far..

That is the quintessence of Toynami Futurama product collecting... and displayed so gloriously!

It's too perfect, it burns the eyes!!!!!

A lot of it did come from ebay and other stuff came from friends dumping their collection.  I came into the game a little late so there was a lot of searching :)  Thanks, MuchAdo!  I didn't have enough room to display the original SDCC destructor, but Im happy with how it turned out.

Dudes and lady dudes I have missed out on this whole conversation but will catch up later, can anyone point me in the right direction for selling an original chef bender? I wanted to sell it on this site because I know were all collectors and it will be appreciated, which forum do I use?

Ok guys im back, i have read everything and i have to agree with hopie4ever in the UK we get majorly screwed over with the import taxt we end up paying almost double on the figures, the chef bender turned up today i have to say im more impressed with the quallity of it than what the seller had said, it is mint in box but the box has a slight bend in the back but the figure looks brilliant, i have to forward it on now :) i will upload a photo of my current collection in a min

It is a pretty amazing display, are you not slightly worried though that the lights might do damage to the boxes?
mickywinz

Delivery Boy

« #464 : 08-25-2014 11:00 »

EvilPDA, not at all.  They are all LED and they are only on when I a)show someone the case or b)take a picture.  So were talking 1 or 2 minutes a week at most.  They arent exposed enough to do any damage and the LED are extremely low heat.  LeelasOpposite, I couldn't say off the top of my head.

I never thought about using the light when taking a picture, that's a good idea

mickywinz, oh that's okay really love the collection though! EvilPDA, me either, I plan on getting a similar case also going to put my Futurama shirts either in the background of the case or have them in a thin glass display case hanging up on the wall, I also would like to include the full series DVDs in the display case somewhere, hope it all works out.

I finally got the Shogun Warriors Bender off of Amazon, and I figured I'd share it here for those who haven't grabbed one.

He came in a really nice looking box which has a lot of cool artwork and images. It also has the standard Bender description on the back, along with a couple specs and the very fitting quote, "Bite my Colossal Metal Ass!".



Onto the actual toy; Above all, it's just cool. I mean, it's a huge Bender - what more could a fan want?.... other than Morbo, Lrr, the Mafia, Flexo, and the talking Robot Devil.



 His head rotates at the neck, his door swings open, and his arms move at the shoulders, elbows, and wrists - though, the wrists only turn so that the hands can be shot out. The legs don't move at all, and actually look like they have posts going through them.



 The firing hands work just fine, and can actually cover some ground. Interestingly, the left hand is shot out by being pushed, while the right hand is simply sprung out. That, of course, makes the lefty shoot much further. They are released by a small tab on each elbow.



 The overall look of the figure is spot-on, and matches with past benders pretty well. The choice of expression was well done, and though interchangeable eyes would've been cool, in this case it wasn't necessary. The mouth's lines are actually sculpted on, instead of simply painted - that's a good small touch. The hands fingers are close together, making it seem he only has two from some angles. But hey, rotating wrists, easy solution!



There were a few issues; Most noticeably, mine came with a bent antenna. Now, this isn't that big of a deal, as most Bender toys suffer this anyways, but it's a problem nevertheless. Another is that his door won't stay closed - Tape, to the rescue. The last one is one that doesn't irk me at all, but is something to be acknowledged - there is no space behind the door. Just more gray. Anyone planning to use this as a piggy bank might be disappointed.

One funny thing I noticed is that on Bender's lower back, where Matt Groening's name is, it says Copyright 2011; and yet, this was released in 2014. This guy's been hanging around for a while, hasn't he?

Overall, he's really neat, and is certainly a great buy for collectors. I'd move a little fast if you're planning on buying one, though, because there's only 500, and Amazon seems to only have one left. He's worth the price (assuming you pay under $200), and really stands out from the plastic (or in his case, vinyl) crowd!

Really nice review buddy, I've made me want one only thing is the lack of chest cavity bothers me, would have been good to store things inside him

His body seems like it's hollow, at least partly, so a careful customization could probably fix that.

These last two Bender figures look cool... but it's too little, too late.

I doubt I'll even get the Hypnotoad Coinbank, Shogun Bender, and Talking Golden Bender now.
