More Lego Simpsons Minifigs! Willie! Comic Book Guy! Professor Frink!



Comic Book Guy looks very strange without the fat torso overlay, and just a belly painted on the regular body. I’m not going to be hyperbolic and call it Worst Design Choice Ever, but it’s…lacking. Smithers with Malibu Stacy is a nice touch, and Fallout Boy will undoubtedly be popular with fans of the band (though IS USELESS without Radioactive Man!).

Blind-bagged minifigs are fun – but building sets are what we want. There’ve been a whopping TWO so far. Time for more.

Speaking of which, wanna see a better picture of the Lego Kwik-E-Mart?


Is it wrong that this makes me long for a Lego Beavis and Butt-head Maxi Mart? There’s a line that has potential – and would never, ever be considered by Lego, I’m guessing.
