Why isn't JD or RS having one of these organized meetings for Star Wars collectors?

We are Josh, but I think it's just going to be you and me!   :P   ;)

Well, I asked my wife if she'd mind me blowing a little over a grand to go to a toy show so I could meet up with you guys.  Probably would have said yes but for the impression Matt left on the chat board about a month ago, or so.   :P

I had a question for you Simpsons collectors.  I have never collected this line (although it looks great), but have always wanted to pick up a few here and there.  One that I want the most is a Ralph Wiggum...and I was curious what a decent price was for this figure.  Should I just look through the ebay auctions, or is now a bad time to go after this figure?  Also, what is the best (and hopefully not overpriced) version of Homer to get.  Those are my two favorite characters, and I thought about trying to pick them up to have them on my desk.  Thanks for any advice!

If you want a generic Homer there are really only 2

Wave 1 version $8-$15 carded
Treehouse of Horror 2 Version $50-$70 (includes Kang and Kodos the aliens)

Ralph  Was in Wave 4 of 2001 and is selling for around $15-$20

Thanks OCB!  To ebay I go! :)  Thanks for the links to SCS as well, I've been there a few times...really a well done site, especially if you want to learn more about any of the figures that have been released.

Ack, don't go to ebay, at least for Series 1 Homer.  He's still on the pegs of our TRUs ::) :o  

About $10 Cdn and shipping if you want.  Series 1 Bart is there too.

The guys are hoping to get some info on 2004.

I wasn't really excited about the Willie, but they really put alot of detail on him.

Miscellaneous notes:
-Each new series will include 5 new figures and one resculpted rerelease
-The Burns/Smithers Diorama 2-pack will no longer be a Target exclusive.
It will be mixed in with the first series after it ships.
-An upcoming Diorama set will be Bart and Lisa
-Another upcoming Diorama set is Chief Wiggum and Eddie

*******************************************

Agnes, Maude and Grimey were at the top of my list and I am pumped that they are coming

Just off the top of my head...I still would eventually like to see...

Drederick Tatum and Luscious Sweet And a Boxing Playset
Sarah Wiggum
Shary Bobbins
Roger Myers, Jr.
Rich Texan
Lance Murdock
Mmmyyyesss Guy
Capital City Goofball
Leopold
One of the Duffs
Poochie
Frostillicus
Uncle Moe

But if I don't get them I'm OK with them not coming.  This line has got to be one of the best ever...too bad you need to have started at the beginning for it to be reasonably affordable

With the rerealeses , getting some of those early figures shouldn't be to hard. It's also going to be a long shot on Drederick Tatum do to the legal issues.

Figures I still want made are:
Richard and Lewis
 Cookie Kwan
 Dr. Collosus
 Rich Texan
 Artur Crandell and Gabbo
 MMyess guy
 Mrs. Glick
Jessica lovejoy
Sara Wiggum
Bernice Hibert
Casual Hibert
Bob the RV salesman
