News of The Simpsons Collectible Minifigures has been floating around the Internet for the last few months, in the wake of The LEGO Movie: most of it the usual opportunist hearsay for a few seconds of attention, but the occasional picture has been thrown around too.
Well today, on LEGO’s Facebook page (so I hear), this official image of the 16 figures in the series was posted.
This is the first time I’ve paid any attention to the figures (as we know, I don’t follow leaks of any kind), and I can honestly say my opinion of the series hasn’t changed. I’m not really a Simpsons fan, though I did initially like the show, and I would only be interested in getting one of each of the figures for my collection.
I’m predicting that Krusty, Marge and Homer will be some of the more difficult figures to obtain, possibly along with Bart. Expect many of these figures – especially the main characters – to be scalped and sold on for ridiculous prices on the grey market… but not for very long.
The Simpsons Collectible Minifigures are allegedly going to be released in May, and you can hear the lack of excitement as I type that last sentence! Going by the box art, the box and the packets will be a pleasant light blue.
P.S. the feminists will surely complain about there only being three female characters in the series… it would have been interesting to see Mrs Krabappel, I admit.
