What are you gonna do guys? Toynami looks as if they are sick of Futurama merch anymore. I would like it if they could still remake some of the other figures and have them up for resell. But to be quite honest, I really do want Flexo.

If they actually are sick of it, then they should just crank out the last few figures (Morbo, RM, Flexo, and Lrr) and then call it quits. I'd be pretty happy to end my collection with those figures, even though there'd be no Scruffy...

Yeah I'd be fine if they released The Mafia, Morbo, Flexo and Lrrr too.

Gender Bender is so freakin' awesome.

The only weird things is that his head doesn't appear to be removable.

Okay, I recently had a good idea as to how toynami could cheaply produce new figures. What If they simply re-used body sculpts, such as Hermes' body, to create other characters? They could easily make Leela's Dad or Sal out of Hermes' body, for example, and all they'd have to do is create a new head sculpt and repaint the figure. They could make Lars and Hutch out of Fry's body, Wernstrom out of Farnsworth's body, Harold Zoid out of Zoidberg's body (and possibly head), Petunia from Mom's body, and Flexo (duh) from Bender's body. Sure, it wouldn't make the figures stand out very well, but at least we'd be getting more charcters fro cheaper costs then.

I'd rather they released repaints of Universe 1 figures for Bender, Hermes, Amy and Farnsworth than release figures using the same molds as others. That's something they've avoided this line and I've ended up with a shelf of really unique looking figures because of it.

It works for some like Flexo, though. Maybe they could do Billy West, too.

let's just deal with the facts.

in four days it'll be september, and still no word on this grand scheme 'kickstarter' idea they dooped us into. sure it may happen, but to be lured in so many times by toynamis lost my intrest. they obviously make enough money off limited run figures so to hope they release the mafia, lurr, morbo and flexos like hoping for a cure to cancer. i'm fed up with toynami. the whole tineez idea was a cop out to kid robots success, they just need to give up the licensing to a company who can afford it because they're broke. toynamis more into anime anyways. fcuk toynami, i've been waiting for years for figures you've flaunted and if and when they do come out...cool, but i'm over it. my collections complete, or as complete as it can be.

I personally think the line is dead. I mean, just add up the negative factors: The Line hasn't sold well, there is very little comercal intrest in the line, no big retailers want to sell it, and the series the line is based off of has ended, most likely for the last time. Why would they continue? We'd likely be the only people buying the figures, and that wouldn't be enough to support the production costs of each figure, which seems to be quite alot. I wish It wasn't so, but I truly beleive the main line is deader than last weeks cat, as I said. I'm not sure if the other rpoducts are dead yet, but I'm more than sure that they are. Why make toys of a show that's gone?

I agree with Nacirema, as to how the Tineez seem like a rip-off of KidRobot's success, and I think that's what deterred people from buying them. Why would you buy the crappy knock off tineez when you could buy the awesome, real Kidrobot figures? I also think that the Tineez deterred buyers because of the odd style they chose-How does Futurama's style even relate to Anime/Chibi? I f they had made plushies of the characters in the regular Matt Groening style, I'd have bought the heck out of them. However, they made them in the same weird Chibi style, which I personally hate, so I bought zero. If they were trying to raise money for the main line by releasing those, they made a bad choice.  The only reason I'd want them is if somebody else bought them for me, and even then I'd probably never open/adknowledge them.

Yes, shame on you for making all these toys Toynami!

Sorry, but I doubt any other maker would have made this many Futurama figures.
Look at MAC and their Zoidberg, Hermes, Amy, and Prof... wait... they didn't make shit!
And nobody else ever would have either.

Bunch of spoiled toy babies on here.

Toynami already said the Kickstarter is caught in legal trouble, that it probably won't happen now.

And fuck Kidrobot and his 50 dollar a piece anime baby toys, at least the Tineez knockoffs are cheap.

I meant shame on them for wasting good cash on the Tineez, not for making the awesome figures. I'm very greatful that they made them, and it's too bad they probably won't ever get the chance to get more.

Shame on the fans for buying Kidrobot crap and killing the 6-inch line!

Remember Tineez were only made (ripped off) b/c Kidrobots Futurama sales were beating Toynami's 6-inch figure line... to the extreme.

The Kidrobot fans killed the regular line.

Shame on them.

Dooped you into. Pessimism leads to less disappointment, especially with this company .

My Destructor, Gender Bender and Hypnotoad arrived last night. That is one huge box for the fighters. I'm leaving these guys mint at least until I move to my new place and buy them a nice display case, there's not much space left in my room, but the box did manage to find a spot to sit in view. No full review yet, but I do see a few minor paint defects on Destructor's spikes, still awesome though.

On the subject of making toys for a dead show, lots of companies do it, You only gotta look at such shows like earth worm Jim they still make figures for that, I think people are far too negative about toynami, you all bitched and griped and told me gender bender would never see the light of day but low and behold in my display case I own a wig wearing girly bender, I admit I never got it through forbidden planet BUT I haven't given up on that they emailed me to say I'd receive it end of oct so lets just wait and see

Is the line "dead"? Absolutely! When was the last retail release? Been dead for two years.

That said, doesn't mean Toynami can't squeeze a few more toys out of it via other channels.

I'd all but written off getting Destructor & Gender Bender, but got 'em now.

As for Morbo, until I hear otherwise, I'm still assuming the Kickstarter's going to happen.

So what if August is almost over and Toynami's late, when have they ever been on time?

Patience people. Sure, we'll see it to believe it. But no need to write it off yet.

I know that MAC didn't actually make those figures, but It made me wonder....did MAC every have any plans to make more characters other than Fry, Leela and Bender? I read somewhere that they were going to make Zapp and  Mom, but never got to. Is that a rumor, or is it true?

Also, I'd like to add that, as other people have mentioned, maybe we (including me)can be too expectant of the line at times.  Although it'd rock to have a Lrr or Morbo, I'd much rather have Destructor than those two-and they actually made him- Twice! I'm gonna be more greatful that this little, relatively no-name company has been able to make such awesome and unique figures, and slowly more and more. I have a feeling the line is dead, but I' not gonna stick to that, seeing as they finally did release the Gender Bender. So, In short, I'm gonna look at line more positively, and just be glad we have what we have.

let me get this straight....you'd rather a have a character thats in one episode, over two thatre in coutless episodes? are you really that stupid?

sure, destructor is an alright character...but lurr and morbo were molds shown to us years in advance to a stupid fcuking two pack. gender benders a stupid character. he might make an awesome fig, but as someone who's collected this line since the beginning (and not like most the winey band wagoners who're mopey cuz they couldnt get the initial line without spending and arm n leg) thats really pitiful.

Hey, Buddy, Before you go around insulting other people's opinions, take a freaking typing class so you don't look like an idiot.

I get what you mean, though. Sure, Lrr and Morbo are in many more episodes, and are definitely much more of prominent characters in the series than Destructor, But Destructor looks so much cooler on the shelf, towering over all the other smaller figures. Lrr and Morbo would certainly look cool, seeing as they'd be some of the only aliens in the line, but Destructor catches the eye much faster than they ever would. He's a freaking foot tall! He's the biggest figure of the line! Like I said, I'd be alot more sad to never have a Destructor than to never have a Morbo or Lrr.

For the record, though, if I had to choose if I wanted either Lrr or Morbo, I'd have to go with Lrr. He's just so on model, and he looks awesome, like I said.

primary characters> a character that's in five episodes and two of the four DVD's.

he's just as useless as nudar.

they might be cool characters don't get me wrong. but they're not worth it in the long run for the vitality of the line. there's still a lot of figures they should do. moms sons, to go with mom. smitty for url. that'd be pretty cool to have a smitty with url behind a robot nixon, kiff and zapp. they could as mentioned by many finish the alternative universe because they already have the molds. scruffy. scruffy. you have now finished the crew without scruffy. sad face. I'd much rather have been waiting this long for the mafia opposed to the gender bender/destructor. a morbo and or lrrrrrrr would have been a more justifiable wait as a deluxe or singled limited run figure(s). prototypes already made. if its 10 racks to make a mold so be it. toynami should just be doing limited runs. just bump em up to 4,000 tho.

Nudar is my favorite villain and I must write that this whole conversation is pointless since it's all just your personal taste vs. someone else's.

Maybe I think Morbo, Lrr and Destructor are all retarded choices before doing what I want most. Which would be Scruffy, Seymour, and Hedonismbot instead.
So everyone’s entitled to their own personal wants.
Hell, Destructor may be the only figure you want.. and that doesn’t make you wrong or right.
It just makes you... YOU.

All the fucking Bender variants is what helped kill the main line, not Nudar or URL.
I never asked for 20 Bender's over the other characters!

Also most people who don't collect toys seem to like Nudar, Nixon, and Robot Santa Claus the best when I show them my figure collection.
So again, I believe it's the Bender variants, people never seem to like them as much as regular good old Bender.
