Remember those celebrity guest star Simpsons toys that were announced a while back? This is what they look like. Apparently they WILL be compatible with the Playmates figures.
Who would you like to see next?
Needs more Bret Hart.
Who would I like to see next? Nobody! Good gosh! You could create a whole new planet made out of all the Simpsons merchandise in the world.
It's time the show was canceled, the merch was ended, and the world put the Simpsons behind them.
Really, Kid Rock?! I know likenesses are expensive, but come on! Rodney Dangerfield (yeah, guest character not star, bit it was Rodney under a different name) or Tom Jones or Tito Puente or Stephen Hawking or Ron Howard in a bathrobe or Gary Goleman or Conan O'Brien (an ex-pat of the staff) or one of the other jock guest stars?! Yeah, they might be part of the other 20, but even though I don't hate Kill The Alligator and Run as much as other fans (more due to Diedrich Bader as the sheriff and the "I like that" waitress) but really, Kid Rock is part of your reveal?!
Here I was hoping for a Bette Midler with can-throwing action.
interesting the company proaly had to a pay a fortune for the okay including hef himself . who would i want next besides maybe them finaly releasing krusties father . michel jackson his bald headed version. plus also of course stan lee. and what would really be interesting but will not happen they get the okay for the first lady . since she did a guest stint . plus a three pack of ron howard. kim basinger and alex baldwin.
This is far from a cromulent lineup; it would be embiggened by Rodney Dangerfield (as Burn’s son) & the entire team from “Homer At Bat.” (With gigantism-suffering Griffey.)
Pretty underwhelming, even this article has a "fuck it" tone that I can't blame LYT for.
I want to see Spinal Tap.
Waiting for Michael Jackson.
Wait - these are figures?
They look more like tiny statues to me. Or are we going by the old-school Todd MacFarlane definition of what constitutes a "toy"?
Do people still collect these? The only place I have seen simpsons figures in the last 4 years was my local kmart dumping stuff for a dollar or two out of the their back storage, and at thrift stores.
Tom Hanks?? Where's Otm Shank, India's answer to Brian Dennehy?
I'm surprised the Yao Ming one doesn't just have the character for want. That was a big deal back then, and bu yao is my standard response to fanfic.
Bret Hitman Hart and Adam West.
Let's get Barry White and some sexy, slithery snakes...
Tom Hanks AKA generic man in a suit.
Still wish I could get a Prisoner Number 6 figure from The Computer wore Menace Shoes.
Yao Ming and Kid Rock are the best they could come up with?
@nix.nightbird Someone needs a hug.
@donnaryoko I remember there being a Hawking figure a few years back, with an extendable boxing glove and all. Now THAT was a cool figure.
We also need a Ron Howard as well.
@JOEV Yeah, but you press a button on his back and he's suddenly dressed as a generic woman in a dress circa his Bosom Buddies days.
No need to put your two cents in. No need to challenge what already is.
A still tongue makes a happy life.
Be seeing you.
@troi yeh...sort of what I was thinking. Kid Rock appeared in "Kill the Alligator and Run", which is widely considered on Simpson's fan sites to be one of the worst episodes of all time.
How does he get a run ahead of Leonard Nimoy?
@bicknoyle @Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird /reply
@Canadian.Scott With Con-Exclusive Fantastipottamus figure.
@Canadian.Scott It would be nice to have Alex and Kim as well...just to remember the happier times.
@TheXenos Wow, is there some history here, or is this just the harshest reply ever made to a seemingly innocuous comment?

@MarkTwainsGhost @Canadian.Scott No joke. I read this and thought you meant happier times as when The Simpsons used to be good.
@SundownMotel @OneMinuteGalactica @TheXenos Seen it, but was never a huge fan, which I guess is why I missed the quote. Love that Simpsons episode, though.
@OneMinuteGalactica @TheXenos I think someone needs to watch "The Prisoner" stat
Nerd news, humor and self-loathing.
