Dark Horse had considered the idea about a year ago so it is possible that this idea could become a reality. My bets would be on them at this point as they already have a history of producing squishy figures like HG Blob and the forthcoming Brain Slug.
Dark Horse never gave me any indication that they were going forward with this and even at SD Comic Con some of the workers at their booth seemed down on further Futurama merchandise. It sounded like they did not sell very well which made the announcement of the Brain Slug all the more surprising. I know that they were very interested in this idea as early as January/February of this year but after the HG Blob came out it got very quiet over there and then came the cancellation of the pop-out peoples. At that point I had figured that DH was out of the market for Futurama and were moving on to the Simpsons.
What does all this mean? It is a possibility that this could happen but I will believe it when I see it. I certainly hope they do that is for sure!
