Today on my lunch break I stopped into Target and picked up the re-issue Moe. He is the same as the previous release just with a different paint scheme. He is blue in color instead of the white and grey.

Same accessories.

They had X2 of Moe and X1 or X2 of the rest of Series #12. No Mr. Burns. :(

On the back of the Moe card it shows Moe and Mr. Burns. I noticed it does not show them on the back of the regular series #12 figures.

Well anyways here is what he looks like on card. I have not opened him yet. I will do that later today.

This past weekend I opened up Wave 12 and was a little underwhelmed to be honest.  The highlight for me was Mister Plow, most of the characters were not high on my wishlists I guess.  Wave 13 and 14 look very cool though

Also word today that the 300th Episode Playset was canceled (thank the Lord, that thing sucked)  :-*  I was going to buy it but I wasn't happy about it

I'm relieved.  Not much in that list that appeals to me at all.  No new Homers, I'm good.  Can't say I'm terribly dissappointed in the cancellation of the 300th set either.

There are actually 20 or so figures I still want...which could put us well into 2005.  Some of the Wave 13 stuff like Hawking, Mrs Lovejoy, Miss Hoover, Princess Kashmir etc are neat, some of the stuff is barrell scraping.  And Cory, you've been saying that since Wave 7 or 8  :-*

I think that the Simpsons has another two years or so before they run out of characters to make. You can only re-do a character so many times. Thus placing re-issues into the new assortments.
Speakin gof Re-Issues, here is the re-issued MR. Burns.

I picked him up at Toys-R-Us for $5.99.

If they do continue the Simpson's Line I wonder if they will go the way of Hasbro ans start to make deluxe figures or something? That would be scarry.

Well, I am a Simpson's fan and I will always be. If the toy line contiunes for a long time the better, if not, oh well. It has had a great run so far.

Hmm, blue suited burns.  Maybe, just maybe.  Scott?

Only other coming figure that interests me is Stephen Hawking.
