71009 LEGO Minifigures - The LEGO Simpsons Series 2

Ladder19JTKLadder19JTK Hudson ValleyMember Posts: 209
With the Simpsons Series 2 MF slated for release the beginning of  next month, has anyone seen them pop-up in stores yet?  As we all know, Target and TRU have a pretty good track record in breaking release date rules!

    Or anyone have the Target DCPI for these?

    I'm just glad they are out. Not because I want them ( I do not), but because it saves me money toward getting the 'monsters' CMF line which should come out in the fall.

    We have a walmart that just opened a few weeks back. They have tags up for "simpsons minifigures" I'm assuming series 2 as its a new store.....all they had was boxes of series 13...which was great because everyone seems sold out around here and my daughter was looking for a paleontologist

    Waiting for Minifiguresplus on eBay to post and buy from him.

    Is Target getting strict with their street dates? A CSR pulled an unopened box from the stockroom and when I went to pay the computer wouldn't allow the item to scan. The store manager tried to do an override but the computer did not give her that option.

    I found what looked like an untouched set of the minifigures yesterday at a Target in Missouri, but when I price checked, they didn't come up. I didn't even bother taking them to the front.

    I went back today, and they had all been pulled, unless someone bought them all up, which I doubt.

    You plan on selling through Bricklink?
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,241
    ^ Think they usually do the box sales through ebay.

    Does anyone have the upc for these?

    Yes, and our Bricklink prices should reflect the difference in fees between the two sites. I would expect a price around $224 per box.

    Thanks, but I think that may be an international package which has a different upc than for the US. I was able to get it by using the DPCI at target. 673419231527 for anyone else who cares.

    I picked up half of the Simpsons set at Meijer last night...$3.99.

    Has anyone in the southern US found these anywhere to buy? Besides Target, unless they let you buy them...

    Surprised these werent like the last Simpsons series, last year Walmart had put them out over a month in advance...not many places doing that with these. Guess I will be hitting Target on Friday.
  • Gooker1Gooker1 Member Posts: 590
    This year, Target has it in their systems that it's street dated, so they're unable to sell it to you even if they wanted to b/c their system won't allow it.

    Previous series just had a sticker on the box that had a street date.  The system lock itself is why it's not being sold earlier like last year.  I can imagine Wal Mart and TRU are experiencing the same thing.

    They are all in TRU stores in U.K bought a load of packets today. Wow I was well chuffed with getting Moleman :D
  • byolegobyolego Member Posts: 114
    Found them in Target today (L.A. county, CA) and NOT a day sooner!
    (None at TRU yet).

    Checked a local Target. Nada.

    Wonder if someone bought the whole box...??

    Perhaps they just haven't got the time to put it out, why don't you ask if they have it in the stock room?

    They they won't run out, Target box is not the box of 60 ones, it's the large display that hangs, so it's unlikely that it has run out.

    Here's the picture of the display, notice that they have re-used the series 13 display.

    ^ duuuuuuude. not cool. lol
  • legomasonlegomason Member Posts: 190
    I've seen boxes of 60 at Target lately. I think this is one too, that's why they had to reuse the Series 13 box.
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,241
    Saw them at my target and TRU tonight.  One of the Target employees in electronics had a pile of them behind the counter feeling them out.  Will wait to buy a full box.  In no hurry.
  • 77ncaachamps77ncaachamps Aspiring Time Traveler Stuck in the West (US)Member Posts: 2,439
    Just picked up a half box at TRU.
    Nice lady at the register had a colleague override for 20% discount.

    Albeit for one of the figures. :/
  • suprajamessuprajames UK SussexMember Posts: 366
    Picked up 5 today at the local department store, and managed to get 2 doubles, not a great start.
  • 77ncaachamps77ncaachamps Aspiring Time Traveler Stuck in the West (US)Member Posts: 2,439
    My box was picked through. I didn't care. It was late. I'll feel through them and swap or return the doubles.
  • 1greenwing1greenwing Member Posts: 26
    Have not been able to find any in my area of south Florida. Have been checking local TRUs, Walmarts and Targets. Customer service does not have a clue about the stock status at the TRU or Target and Walmart just doesn't have a clue. Will keep checking.
  • ChgoMattChgoMatt USAMember Posts: 108
    They're available in Schaumburg, IL at the Woodfield Lego Store and the Lego Discovery Center for $4.  No Target sightings yet.

    Found about 90 today at a target, they did not looked like they had been messed with at all.
    bought a Radom bunch of them and had all but 2.  After seeing the paper inside the package they were all pretty easy to feel and identify.

    But the heads are really a pain in the arse when feeling the packages. So big!

    This is what my kitchen table will look like for the next week until my sets are complete...

    Mole man seems to be the toughest find. Off to Target to amuse the staff!

    Moleman is rather easy, 1x2 tile + short legs, I find Dr Hibbert/Homer the most problematic as we need to fell the head.

    Mole man has that little rectangle brick, that's how I found him.

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 11,940
    Yes, identifying him is easy - I think he's just less common in the case.

    The case is actually for displaying tractor trailer models.  I stole the idea from a design I saw on Flickr for CMF displays.  Mine are a bit shorter - as I was concerned about some of the taller figures fitting in the case.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/notenoughbricks/sets/72157627468826736/

    I'm not sure if you can find another vendor in the UK, but the link below is the manufacturer.  I ended up buying to cartons - so I'm set for the next few minifigure collections.

    https://www.pioneerplastics.com/shop/164-hauler/164-scale-display-case/

    The design for the display is pretty simple - it's tracking down the right mix of plates and bricks to match the color of the CMF bags.  If you're not picky, I think black would probably provide the most pop for display.  My main concern was dust - as my CMF Series 1 were getting pretty dusty and I was concerned about losing pieces if I ever decided to dust them.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157651921363949/

    The ones for the Simpsons I used the lime green smooth tiles because they were in abundance at the pick-a-brick at my local Lego Store.  It gives the display a better finish look.  But I wasn't going to try and track those down tiles for the 15 other series.

    Feel free to PM me if you want more pictures or have any other questions.

    Last one on displays, I promise. This is a detail of the tiles for the display. @NickF22

    Nice cases. Have been looking for something different. I use shadowbox, but they are too skinny for figures like Neptune and Medusa. This may be the solution.

    Medusa had to be turned sideways to accommodate her tail - which is a big part of why I stole that design. There is plenty of room on the top row to fit odd-sized characters. The lower level is low enough to accommodate fishing poles and tall spears.

    I got some shadowboxes with built in shelves, but I'm finding that bigfigs don't fit. The Avengers look funny without a Hulk. And that 'normal' sized Hulk just looks silly.
  • KralaskanKralaskan Member Posts: 208
    The toys  r us by us had the simpsons 2, was totally surprised.   They usualy have nothing.  
    Had 12s and 13s too 
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 11,940
    Did anyone do a case breakdown? Just curious to know which figures will be more common.

    From Series 1, I recall Chief Wiggum, Mr. Burns, Itchy and Scratchy being slightly less common.

    The Glen Burnie North Target? The one by TRU? The Nolpark Court Target in Glen Burnie had maybe half a box left late Saturday afternoon.
