Early Universe 1 Zoidberg

The new "Universe 1" Zoidberg figure we reported on will make an early appearance at Wizard World Chicago, which takes place August 9th - 12th.
Wizard Entertainment sent us a new picture of alternate Zoidberg (click to enlarge) and also offered to send us one of the neat blue crustaceans, which you can order from their web shop. We figured that we should hand over our free copy to CGEF readers.

Mini contest:

Potential participants need to be living in the US and either be adults or 13+ years old with permission of their parents. The winner will be picked by our one-woman-jury 'edel' and then contacted for shipping details.
Task: Send an email to [email removed, contest over] before August 15th 2007 and make up a funny Zoidberg quote in which he gives a reason stating why he should be picked as the winner. The email should also say that, yes, you are living in the US and yes, you are old enough/have permission to take part.

I might post a few of the funnier answers later on.

Update: Contest is over, and the winner is ... 'Phil', with the following quote:
ZOIDBERG: "They laughed at Zoidberg when Zoidberg said he would win! Zoidberg's mother laughed, Zoidberg's bus driver laughed, even Zoidberg himself laughed! But now it is time to show them all. Show them all my fancy new action figure with the blue shell. Zoidberg will make them jealous for once. They may have their houses and their cars and their more-than-one-change-of-clothes, but I will have the toy. I will have the toy! And a meatball sandwich, maybe, if it's not too much trouble? Zoidberg is very hungry. Even one meatball and a crouton? Hello? Hellooo? Did you hang up on me? Ohhhhhh."

Some runner-ups in our new "click me to expand" section:

Zoidberg: "The robut stole my last Zoidberg figurine and beat me over the head with it until it broke... broke my head, I mean. I'm telling you he's risking my friendship with him!"
Zoidberg: Blue, blue you say...Blue tastes better then red why not.
Zoidberg: Ahhh such a delectable treat, its like my uncle Harold always said, there is no shellfish too discolored to eat!
Zoidberg: "Zoidberg MUST have the statue. You see, funny story: ever since the Package Express Medical plan replaced my old shell, my little pupating buds don't recognize their Big Daddy Zoidy! So you see, unless I have this reminder of what I, Zoidberg! looks like, my Spawn will scuttle away in fright, emptying their ink pouches along the way, leaving me crying like the last fiddler crab to the picked clean carcase of a rotting whale!"
