In stores this June are the neatorific new Futurama I-Men Figurines. Two figures per blister card: Fry & Calculon. Bender & Robot Devil, Leela & Roberto, Zoidberg & Morbo, Professor & URL. Hopefully if these sell well, we'll get a second wave of these figures with some other characters like Zapp, Kif, Amy, and Scruffy. To get an idea of what the casing will look like, check out Action-Figure.com. If you want the entire set, you can pre-order it for 30$US at BigBadToyStore.com, or you can wait until it hits stores and retails for about 5$ or 7$ per set of two.
FUTURAMA COMICS #17
By Boothby & Delaney
Fry, Leela, Bender, and Cubert return to Earth from last issue's outer space adventure at boarding school only to find the planet Earth complete uninhabited. But before they can figure out where everyone has gone, they are forced to defend the planet from alien invaders who try to claim it under Intergalactic Planetary Salvage Laws. Fight the Future with Futurama Comics this May!
Relase date: May 26th
FUTURAMA COMICS #18
By Verrone & Rivette
After defending their recently uninhabited world from alien invaders, Fry, Leela, and Bender set out to discover the whereabouts of their missing colleagues as well as billions of citizens from Planet Earth. But "where are they?" soon turns into "when are they?" and "how" and "why" also make a little appearance in Part 2 of "Time Bender Trilogy." Yes, there's time travel - so bring a change of clothes!
I don't really know what's up with this. This confuses me. #17 is suppose to be part two, but #18 is? I don't even know when #18 will be released... Eh, if anyone knows what's up, make a comment.
