Gifts for Futurama Fans
Futurama Gift Guide
If you know someone who is a fan of the cartoon Futurama, then there are many unique gifts for you to choose from during this gift-giving season (or for birthdays after this gift-giving season). Chances are they already have the DVDs, so now's the time to think outside of the box for your beloved nerdlinger. Here I have gift ideas to fit every budget so you'll be sure to find something for your Futurama fan no matter what you are planning to spend.
Welcome to the world of tomorrow! A new twist on a classic game.
This collectible Monopoly game features Futurama locations and
artwork by Matt Groening. This is a must-have for any die-hard fan
of Futurama. Instead of the traditional top hat or thimble, you can
choose to be either the Hypnotoad, Seymour (Fry's dog from the past),
Bender, the What-If Machine, a brain slug, or the Planet Express ship.
There are Resi-Domes and People Hives in place of houses and hotels.
You will be playing with futuristic money, with the head of Richard
Nixon on the ten dollar bill, an alien Blob on the twenty dollar bill,
and Al Gore on the five hundred dollar bill.
Yahtzee! This collector's edition of Futurama would be great whether
or not the receiver like to play games. If they don't like to play
Yahtzee they can still keep the collectible dice cup on display on a shelf.
The dice for this game have pictures of Fry, Leela, Professor Farnsworth,
Amy, Bender, and Zoidberg. It comes with a collectible Bender dice cup.
Talking Bender Action Figure
Give someone the gift of Bender! This talking Bender action figure
utters twelve different phrases. So, shut up and listen to Bender.
This action figure is nine inches tall and says some of Bender's most
famous lines. The phrases include:
"Shut up and pay attention to me, Bender!"
"Who are you and why should I care"
"Would you kindly shut your noise hole."
Futurama Kidrobots Set
These collectible figures were initially sold separately in "blind boxes"
so you wouldn't know which one you were getting. This is the entire set
with the accessories included. Most of these figures are available separately
on Amazon for a lot cheaper if you just want a couple of stocking-stuffers.
This is the complete set of the Kidrobots for Futurama, including the
accessories for each one. Each figure is individually boxed in their "blind
box." They are approximately three inches tall and have poseable heads
Futurama Die Cast Figures
Die casting is the process of molding molten metal. These are
excellent collector items for a Futurama fan. This set of die-cast
figures includes Fry, Leela, Bender, and Professor Farnsworth.
They are three inches tall.
These are so cute. They are Nibbler, Zoidberg, Bender, Hypnotoad, Kif, Morbo, Robot Devil, and Nibbler in his space suit. Robot Devil and Nibbler in his space suit were San Diego Comic Con exclusives. Robot Devil was limited to 666 and Nibbler to 500. Either of those two would make a great rare gift for a Futurama fan.
Futurama Action Figures
Here is just one of many. This is Fry with the Holophonor.
But there are many more to choose from on Amazon.
There are also these neat glow in the dark figures. These are Kif, Leela
(that one is two - both a regular and glow in the dark figure), and Bender (that one
is also a coin bank).
The Hypnotoad is the hypnotic toad that
has been a fan favorite. There have been
some cute toys released based on the
Hypnotoad. From left to right: This first
Hypnotoad figure has glass domes for eyes
covering lenticular stickers to simulate the
hypnotic eyes. The second one is a San
Diego Comic Con exclusive, limited to
2,000. The third one is a cute coin bank.
Any of these would make a perfect unique
gift for a Futurama fan.
Futurama Complete Series
In case your beloved nerdlinger does not have the entire series on DVD, here is a complete collection, including the four movies (that's the item on the left). Additionally I've included here (on the right) the Complete Collection, which was released in 2009 which includes all of the seasons up until the movies and the movies. It's not the complete series but the packaging is really neat. All of the DVDs are stacked inside Bender's head, so it would make a great display piece.
On the left is a game based on Liar's Dice. It's a dice game where someone has to guess how many dice are on a certain face between all of the cups (the dice are concealed). The cups in this game are Slurm cans and the dice feature Futurama characters. So, instead of dots your dice have Leela, Professor Farnsworth, Nibbler, Fry, Bender, and Zoidberg on either side.
On the right is a Slurm can with Futurama playing cards inside. It would make a great display piece.
I Heart NNY Shirt
An I Heart New New York shirt would make a great unique gift for a Futurama fan. This shirt from Zazzle is available in many different styles so you will have no trouble finding a shirt that matches the gift receiver's style if they are not prone to wearing T-shirts.
Zoidberg Trust Me, I'm a Doctor T-Shirt
This hilarious Futurama T-shirt has a picture of Zoidberg and says,
"Trust me, I'm a Doctor." According to the reviews, this is not a
funny gift for a failed med student. However, it would make a great
gift for a successful med student or pre-med student or especially a
full-fledged doctor. It comes in many different sizes.
