    Towards the end of their run with the Futurama license, Rocket USA released a collection of miniature die-cast figurines. Pictured is the blister card packaging for a 4-pack that consisted of Fry, Leela, Bender, and Professor Hubert Farnsworth. You also got a metal clicker. Later on, this set, along with Series 2 (Nibbler, Zoidberg and a "Bright'N'Shiny" Bender) were released as retangular boxed sets. The boxed sets were certainly more colorful and collector friendly, but I much prefer the minimalistic styling of the blister. The humor on this pack was also a huge plus, with witty lines like "Millions of models available! Collect all four!" (albeit it should read eight) and "Amazingly life-like! For a Hunk of Tin!" punching home the comedy of the 'toon. For small metal collectibles, these were top-notch, however my favorite Rocket USA Futurama release was the wind-up tin Bender toy.
