New Simpsons Lego Minifigures Set Series 2!
Simpsons Lego Minifigures set Series 2 just came out on May 1st! Tiffany and I were able to find these on sale already at the Lego store. Just like for Series 1 last year, we spent quite a bit of time at the Lego store feeling each minifigure packets so we don't get any duplicates! We immediately opened all of the minifigure packets to make sure we had all 16 figures. Unfortunately, we bought one duplicate of Maggie minifigure, confused by the Lisa minifigure. Snowball II somehow felt like Santa's Little Helper! We went back to the store to really make sure we had the Lisa minifigure.
Series 2 extends the Simpsons Lego minifigures set very nicely. Only 6 duplicate character minifigures since series 1, and even the duplicate characters have its own unique pieces to make up for it. We get Snowball II and Santa's Little Helper which complete the Simpsons' immediate family. Bartman and Fallout Boy, and well-dressed Simpsons family are nice character costumes. Series 2 added some really popular side characters, for instance Hans Moleman and Professor Frink. Hoyvin Glavin! We also have Mr. Smithers to match with Mr. Burns. More school characters to play with - Martin Prince, Groundskeeper Willie, and Mrs. Krabappel. Lastly, we have Dr. Hibbert, Patty and Selma, and Comic Book Guy. Overall, series 2 adds more value in Simpsons Lego minifigures collection. Hopefully Lego and Simpsons continues with a series 3!
Predictions for series 3:
- To keep Ned Flanders company:
- Reverend Lovejoy
- To complete school collection:
- Principal Skinner
- Ms. Hoover
- To add to Krusty's show:
- Sideshow Mel
- Sideshow Bob
- Poochie (would be so cool...)
- Possible Moe's Tavern set:
- Power Plant set:
- Lenny and Carl (goes with Moe's!)
- More Springfield characters:
- Mayor Quimby
- Kent Brockman
- Bumblebee Man
- Blue-haired lawyer
- Disco Stu
- Dr. Nick (matches Dr. Hibbert)
- Squeaky-voiced teen
Sounds like I just listed a bunch of Simpsons characters. Anyway, I will be looking forward to a series 3 next year!
Special thanks to Tiffany for helping me find minifigures! :)
