Hey guys i'm new here. Been a pin owner for 5 or so years now strange s ience was first then came a Whirlwind n lastly a WHO dunnit. Just wondering what everyone would think about a futurama pin. I guess im just a fan n thought maybe some others would be to. There would be a wealth of story lines to pull from. i don't know just saw some similar talk on a couple other themes recently. Anyone else agree or am i on my own on this one.

Welcome to pinside Kim. I'm not to sure you'll find alot of support for a futurama pin here.

I think it would be a fun pin. I guess someone already made a custom one.

i think anyone who likes The Simpsons would be on board for futurama. i'd like a ren & stimpy pin but that'll never happen.

Plus 2 on that. And I know for a fact that our very own nimblepin is harassing the powers that be about it for at least the last year. Pat Lawlor where are you?

More like TWO years...
Here was the original... (at least from this site. )

C'mon Stern! Maybe by Christmastime?!?!?

Or perhaps maybe my other suggestion???
Just in time for Halloween 2012!

Both are 100% NIB for me...

Make it happen Stern. It will look great next to my TSPP.

This looks fantastic! Made from an old Superman? I would never have guessed that. That's really real? I wanna go to Washington and check that baby out.

I would jump on it in an instant! Please listen Stern and JJP!! While I love the other shows, Simpsons, Family Guy ect. Futurama is far and above the best. So many great one liners. This one pops into my head: "That's the saltest thing I have ever eaten, and I once ate a whole bowl of salt!" P Fry.

not enough broad appeal IMO


#16 3 years ago

Wow, Evan did a wonderful job there. Way above my skill set.

As far a not enough broad appeal, I guess I just don't think Stern is trying to hit too broad of market. Tron, yes there was a new movie and the fans of the original are probably in the target demographic, but I guess making a pin based on a movie would be similar to a pin based on a TV show, ie Family Guy, Wheel of Fortune.

add me to that list too


#18 3 years ago

As much as I think I would never buy a sight unseen pin, this might make me change my mind.

My HTPC - bender
Laptop - nibbler
Desktop - farnsworth
MAME - scruffy
File server - leela

I think Futurama would be a great pinball machine, but its time has passed for the majority of its fans. It's not viable any longer as a license for pinball, but yeah, it would be a good theme.

...as opposed to ACDC and WOZ? I know what you're saying, though.


#21 3 years ago

Well, those two are fairly "timeless" in comparison. I personally am not too hot on either WoZ or AC/DC as themes personally, but I know worldwide they still have a strong enough pull.

I'm just upset that we never got our Ghostbusters pin.

ohhhhh yea! just think of the "log" mod


#23 3 years ago

Futurama's still going. They did their movies, they did 2 entirely new seasons, and there's still another 2 seasons to come. If it's not "big enough" for Stern or JJP, we'll just have to get Jpop to do it.


#24 3 years ago

I can see a Bender LE and a Leela LE for the game.


#25 3 years ago

I'd buy a Futurama pin.
