We were reminded the other day about Toynami ending its Naruto line, and today were bummed to hear about the end of the line for its Futurama license. The animated series aired its final episode (for now, we hope) back in September last year, and the show coming to its end had already impacted the toy line with figures being reshuffled and cancelled.
Toynami had tried to give some additional life to the line with a planned Kickstarter campaign, but that sadly never materialized. Morbo provided one of my favorite moments on Futurama.

Dear Futurama Friends,
After a long and glorious run since 2006 making collectible toys for the highly revered series, it has come time to bid Futurama farewell. We are sad to announce 2014 will be the final year of our licensing agreement with Fox Studios for the Futurama property. We have now entered into a sell-through phase of our agreement, which means we will not be making any new products such as the Morbo figure, nor can we independently create any new products via a Kickstarter or similar campaign. Any products currently in production will be completed and continue to be sold until the end of the year.
Thanks to Fox for an excellent partnership, and we thank you for all your support through the years!
