    Don't get me wrong, I think the toys are great and I love having them but my patience (and slowing my pocketbook) have run dry waiting for Playmates to get their act together.
    Hey Exhaust Port , Cool your jets

    They will make all the characters (300+) just give them time, We allready have over 100...
    I never got any varient figures

    I have had no problems with any of the figures, except sideshow bob (can't get him to stand up) his heads to big!
    My homers shoes are not green!

    SLH stands just fine for me..thank you very much!
    I love the WOS simpsons figures they are great!!

    I'm glad you're having such great luck, Darth....but, I just bought a Sideshow Bob (Prison) and I'm having the same problem.
    When I had him on a completely flat surface, like with SLH, he's fine. But on my TV (where a lot of my figures are displayed), there is a very thin (and I mean thin) towel, covering the top. Well, Sideshow Bob falls over on that, as does SLH.
    Possibly, if I ever get a chance to move them, I'll have better luck with them standing up...
    Well, I listened to this post's good points about the Simpsons, and just spent a nice buck on Ebay trying to catch up. I went back for mostly playsets: Krustylu, Kitchen, Noiseland Arcade, Krusty Burger and the talking Family Car (even though it's not really a playset). With the figures that I bought from the guy (Fat Tony, Pattie, and all of Series 6: Mascot Homer, Carl, Snake, Hibbert, Frink, etc) everything comes out less than retail. But it was still a lot of money! Why did I listen to you guys!
    The figures that I just bought over the weekend, I like a little better than the earlier ones. I purchased: Sunday Best Grampa, Sideshow Bob (as I mentioned), Lionel Hutz and the last Troy McClure they had. They just didn't seem as disappointing, and could actually hold a lot of their accessories. I can't wait to get my playsets and hear them talk.
    However, everyone that said it, is right. This is getting expensive. I hope to try and catch up with some stuff and then slowly start buying the new stuff that comes out. I too would be with the idea of no more exclusives, as I'm no where near a TRU. I missed out on both the THOH 1 and 2 because of that. I hope that I can go out of town to find the third...

    End...

    Don't forget to keep a receipt and 2 UPC's off the figures or playset so you can mail them away for your free Celebrity figures.

    My tipsy figures are Moe and Prof. Frink. My Sideshow stands but is close to falling over. For me, his voice chip in his feet fell out when I opened the package. Darn.

    I doubt we'll get half of the 300 figures in the Simpsons universe in WOS. Yeah, we have over 100 already but that includes a ton of varients. We have 8 Barts and 15 Homers alone. The upcoming B-Sharps mail-in are all varients. Varients don't bother me so much as long as they're memorable episode characters and different enough from the standard character. Ripped Willie is an example of what I think is a poor varient. Muumuu Homer and Pinpal Homer are great varients.

    I'm not totally giving up on the line yet. I'll probably stick it out through the next 2 waves and see what the future holds then.

    I didn't know about this. Can you fill me in on the details? What celebrity figures do you get? Do you have to get an order form or something?
    Oh, and any info on these mail-away exclusives, I'd like to hear. I'd really like to know ahead of time so I can try to get them. Because, with me, I usually don't hear about something, or I wait too long and usually miss out. Then I'll have to pay much to get them later....it still fries me about that Toyfare Radioactive Homer.... and Pin Pal Burns....and Pin Pal Moe....and the Comic Book Guy (even though Moe and the Comic Book Guy, I did send away for, but they were sold out) .


    Edit in: I read on that Simpsons site about how to get them. Dang. Like I said, I bought 4 figures, so I could have got two sets (one to open and one set to keep away), but it's all on one receipt. Now, I have to buy two more... Oh, I'm so gullable

    End...

    Go here: http://www.simpsonscollectors.com/

    "Simpsons collectors are in for a treat. Purchase any two eligible figures and/or environments from the World of Springfield line and follow the directions to receive two MORE exclusive figures through the mail.

    promotional offer for the Llewellyn Sinclair and Cooder figures.

    Note: This offer is the only way to receive these two figures, as this series is not scheduled for a regular retail release. Hank Scorpio will be added into cases of Series 10 as a 7th figure.

    To receive the figures, you must fill out and return this certificate (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader software) along with two proofs-of-purchase (UPC codes) and a dated sales receipt for any of the products mentioned in the press release.

    I'd try to email Playmates and get an answer to your delemia (sp?). I don't think you should be forced to purchase another 2 figures just to get a seperate receipt. I've never worked in a store or ever asked someone but is it possible to bring in an old receipt from a recent purchase to get a duplicate receipt printed. I have this feeling that the answer is no but it might be worth a shot.

    PS: If the only reason for getting a second set is for the MOC I wouldn't bother. The figures are being packed in a poly bag and thrown in a mailing carton.

    Just for the record, I think that there have been about 60-70 unique (non-resculpt) WoS figures made. Don't hold me to that though.

    Well, it says on the order form, for the exclusives, that it has to be an original receipt. Which would eliminate the option of getting a photocopy or trying what you mentioned. It's alright though. I was planning on buying more, anyway .

    But about getting a second set. No, it doesn't matter to me if they're in a regular package or not - I just like to have an extra to put away, I don't know why. Like for the Toyfare exclusive Boxing Homer, I got my limit of 3. So, I have one to put away, one to open and one to do something else with (trade, etc). Or, for a worst case scenario, if one was to get broken or something, I'd have a replacement...

    End...

    I started getting 2 of the Toyfare exclusives to get something extra to trade for later too. I missed out on Pin Pal Burns but was able to score my Pin Pal Moe order of 2 which I traded one for my missing PPB. It sounds like you have a good idea about getting those extra figures.
