Today is the Day! (great band, btw)


Seems like I've been waiting forever for these Simpsons figures to be released. I can't wait to start making the rounds at lunch.

Curious if TRU and Walmart will carry them starting today as well.

Does anyone have any good bag groping tips for this new batch?  :D

I bought 4 since I was out and about and were on an endcap.  Pretty sure 3 of them are the same now that I'm home but haven't opened them yet.  I think 5 of the 16 all have the same accessory ?

Last time I'm feeling up baggies for toys.

I hit 5 Targets, 4 Walmarts and a TRU yesterday and nary a single Simpsons mini-figure to be found anywhere.  :(

I was hoping these would be easier to find than Hasbro stuff.

They've been at all 3 Targets I've stopped at in the last two days. 

Setup looks just like Jayson's pic.  Sorry bro.

Grabbed my full set at the Lego Store after seeing Avengers this morning.  Took about 20 minutes to go through and find a full set (Homer and Dr. Hibbert are the toughest to tell apart).  Plus I had $120 in VIP points racked up, so I didn't pay anything.

I too grabbed a few at my local LEGO Store today when I went to grab the May 4th Yularen. They were pretty picked over, so I randomly grabbed four - Hibbert, Smithers, Marge and Moleman.

I still have extras of a few Series 1 figs if anyone here needs them!

I was psyched to find these yesterday at Target. I bought 16...got 8 different ones, 5 dupes I didn't have to open and 3 extra Maggie/Snowballs.

Hope to complete the set in the next couple of days. These are a lot harder to feel your way around than the last series.

Took me about 20-30 of groping mg bags last Friday at Target but I finally settled on 16...got out of the store and opened them in my car and found I had two Hibberts and no Homer.  The whole key to me is feeling accessories...Homer and Hibbert have the same bodies and accessories so your left feeling for Hair...it's a tough one.  The rest are fairly easy

I finally completed my collection tonight after tracking down Maggie and Moleman. I think these are all fantastic. I was surprised to see how much hate they have spawned in the Lego forums. Philistines!

I need Martin and Maggie, then I'm done with Series 2.

Finished them off over lunch hour. Still need Milhouse from series 1

Restock!  I got 3 out of the 4 today.  No clue how I confused Bart for Homer.  DOH?

Has anyone seen/picked up the Kwik-E-Mart set yet? Is it even out? We don't have Lego stores around here so I am SOL on this one.

I've seen it at the Mall of America LEGO store. Looks awesome but I don't have the room for it.
