Planet Express rocketship

Planet Express isn't any good without a vehicle, and here we have the iconic rocketship the crew uses on its routine deliveries. Note the stickers on the tailfin, a neat touch.

NY sewers

Not content to create just the surface of the city, De Lanoy constructed the underworld, too. The sewers of New York are a site for many of the show's key situations. Cool, yes, but you wouldn't want to spend too much time there.

Head Museum

Back of MomCorp's headquarters

Bender famously graffitied the back side of MomCorp's headquarters, a detail that isn't overlooked by De Lanoy. The caption for this shot on Flickr reminds us that the new season of "Futurama" started last week on Comedy Central. Get caught up!

MomCorp building

The MomCorp building isn't quite finished in this shot, but you can see the work in progress. It shows how many bricks are required to build just one of the many buildings in the futuristic plastic city.

Madison Cube Garden

The Lego Madison Cube Garden is a rather dramatic piece, lit up from the inside as it is in the show. This version would look good in any living room.
