Back in the day I had all the Simpsons figures and sets that were made – even the hard to find figures that had me running through all the online auctions time after time. NECA and 20th Century Fox have piqued my interest once again with all things Simpsons with a new line of 25 greatest stars program.
The first five figures have been announced which include Hugh Hefner, James Brown, Yao Ming, Tom Hanks, and Kid Rock.
The limited-edition boutique collection includes more than one dozen assorted product categories, which feature each star’s animated likeness as depicted in THE SIMPSONS and THE SIMPSONS MOVIE. Products include collectible miniatures and figures, apparel, games and puzzles, and more, and will begin rolling out globally in early 2014.
I’m on board with this if the figures they do release are in the same style as the previous sets, and include a voice chip with the characters spouting their lines from the episodes they’ve appeared in.
