I seem to recall that the idea of a Matt Groening figure was proposed while the line was healthy, but Playmates didn't want to make the figure at the time, since Matt hadn't been on the show, and the figure would not be able to utilize the line's gimmick, the interactivity with playsets, and delivering dialogue from the show.

When the Rabbi Krustofski figure was canceled, it was allegedly because Jackie Mason decided against allowing his voice-work to be used for a toy. Playmates declined to release that figure as a non-talking figure, so this explanation is probable.

Of course, I could be misremembering all of this.

It WOULD have been awesome to get a figure of MG, though.
