Member JeffBagwellRules took these pictures showing why the Kitchen is one of the most detailed playsets yet. Both the refrigerator and freezer door actually open, revealing extra detail inside via a sticker with various food items on it, like a dead Blinky, a milk carton with a missing child picture of Milhouse on it, and baking soda that expired in 1962. The phone on the wall also detaches from the receiver. Jeff also sent us all of Homer's "Try Me" quotes... read more
Wave 7 sightings continue to come in, especially at Toys "R" Us in California and Washington. We've also had reports of them at Amazing Comics in southern California and the figures at a Musicland store in the Midwest. Finally, for online shoppers, Amazon.com now has the Kitchen in-stock for $22.99. Code CHNKBKAMZNFT gets you $5.00 off of an order of $35.00.
As we reported earlier, the Blockos are in this month's Diamond Comics Previews catalog. Paul actionfig made this scan of the entry which shows the 4-color backdrops for the first time. It also reveals the price of $12.99 and the release date of April, 2002, says they'll come in window box packaging, and implies that the future sets announced before these became exclusives will still come out.
Brianch1 reports some new SKNs found in the Toys "R" Us computer system:
492111 - Simpsons Blocko figure 3 pack - retail $9.99
492119 - Simpsons 10" Collectible figure - retail $24.99
492755 - Simpsons TRU Exclusive 9 pk Bl - retail $29.99
The latter item may be a bundle of three Blockos sets. The Blockos are a Diamond Comics exclusive, so this could be outdated data, but Amazon.com uses these SKNs also and they have carried Diamond exclusives like the Evil Krusty Doll before. It's also possible TRU may get a later series of Blockos as their exclusive.
Shaughn13 informed us what accessories come with the new playsets. The Kitchen has Muumuu Homer's white hat, a bag of Much Ado About Stuffing, and a scale which reads 315 lbs. The Krusty Burger has Pimply Faced Teen's white hat, a red serving tray, a yellow hamburger carton, a carton of fries, and a yellow cup with a white top. Shaughn13 also sent us an image of the Krusty Burger box back and itchykorean sent us scans of the Series 7 figure cardbacks. You'll notice the earlier waves have been phased off of the cardback checklists.
Member paul actionfig found this interesting new playset for Captain McCallister at Toys "R" Us. No, it's not a World of Springfield toy, but a new 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea playset by Mezco Toys. Arr, matey!
Several reports are coming in about people finding wave 7 on the shelves. Mauled Vader at Action Figure Times says he found Series 7 figures at Target in Minnesota.

Kbbl reports that Babbage's is having a 50% off clearance sale on toys, reducing prices of Simpsons figures to $3.50 each. He spotted several Series 6 figures on the pegs. It might also be worthwhile to check Software Etc. and Gamestop which are owned by the same company.
