Are you talking about this David?

Be Sharp Environment Exclusive

That is an exclusive playset with Be Sharp Wiggum as the Figure

Yea, the set only comes with Wiggum. However, there is still time to send out for all the Be Sharp figures.

Yep, I knew no Homers so had already told Jim no thank you, but I wanted to see Xena.  She's holding a gun ??? :o  Odd.  

My pocket book appreciates the break from this one.

THOH4...SWEET!!!!!!!!
How many did they have???  Still no word if I can order on line at TRU.


As for the be sharp Homer...what series did you have to buy for him?  We completely missed that one.    I still need one UPC  from 11 and 13.

Either I am ahead of the game way too much or I think Simpsons collecting has reached a new all time low in terms of Buzz.

These sets have always been THE thing to have each year since THOH2...

the SCS is basically dead in the WOS section, Wave 11-13 sits on the pegs for days, nobody seems to care a ton about this exclusive

I agree.  This line is doomed.

Beth, I may be able to help you out with B-Sharp Homer.  Not sure, but in the mess that I call my office, I may have the appropriate four UPC's necessary.  I'm not back there until Friday though, so I'll let you know then.  I may also be able to help you with the Wave 13 stuff.  Thanks to Scott's generosity in sending me stuff I don't want (trying to lure me into WOS beyond my little world of Homer).  

Scott's comments are worrisome.  I don't want this line to stop, even though I'm not its biggest supporter.  I know there are two more Homers coming and I want those bad boys.  I think not having a classic THOH with Homer is damaging.  Not that this one is not kewl, just lacks good old Homey.  And after last year's THOH episode, they had so much to work with.

I wouldn't say that put a headstone and start etching in 2004 jsut yet but the lack of interest is sorta disturbing long term.  As long as most of 2004 happens I'll be happy with what we have...little to nothing even on my wishlist would make me pissed that I never got it unlike LOTR

I was surprised to see wave 13 hanging on the pegs at Target last week but I assumed that they just got it in.   I was doubley (is that a word?) stunned that there were two Stephen Hawkings figures there as that was a tough one to get.  

I like the individual figure line better than the exclusives that come with the 'environment' sets.  IMO, they could do without those all together.  Well, Moe's tavern is nice and there are a couple cool ones but it seems everytime I turn around they are making another obscure one and the prices are getting higher ($30.00 for the latest one!!).  

PS:  Thanks Brent, I'll keep an eye on my pm's.
