I picked this up from www.fandomshops.com,
where they run around $21, but there is a coupon right now - just
type in SALE2 - and that get's the price down to a reasonable sum.
You can also pick these up at some comic shops, although not many.
It seems they figured that since they were die cast no one would
care. The Media Play stores (Media Play, Suncoast Video, Sam Goody)
are also carrying them, but selling out quick.
Packaging - ***1/2
Great stuff! The card art is terrific, with lots of lines similar to
the humor of the show. I particularly like "20th Century
technology at 21st Century prices!"
Sculpt - ***
These aren't perfect, but they aren't bad. I particularly like
Professor Farnsworth, and Leela is quite good as well. Fry's grin
seems off, but that might just be me. The heads are not metal - they
are PVC - but the bodies are all die cast.
Quality - ***
The paint quality is pretty good, with very few problems on this
set. Unfortunately, I haven't seen any other sets yet to determine
if there are problems overall. The clicker I received did appear to
be easy to chip though, so be careful.
Value - **1/2
These seem to be pretty consistent in the 20-25 buck range. Fifteen
is a much more reasonable price point, but since there is so little
Futurama merchandise currently available, most folks won't complain too
Overall - ***
Good sculpts, great characters, and they're die cast - what more could you
