It's that time again boys and girls. The SCS proudly presents another inside look at one of our valued members. This time around it's 20 Questions with Todd Ma... we mean 20 Questions with 100tacos for 100dollars. This should serve as adequate sustenance for your reading appetite.

New details have surfaced on the 300th Episode gift set (not due out until August) in the newest issue of the Hollywood Reporter, which contains a huge section on the Simpsons' 300th episode. Peter Byrne, Executive VP of Licensing and Merchandising for Fox Worldwide said the set "includes Bart in his pajamas and an extreme Homer (outfitted head to toe in skateboard gear)". All Playmates has said about this previously is that the set will feature "Simpsons family members dressed in different themes as seen in the 300th episode". No word on what the other three Simpsons family members will be dressed as yet, but we will definitely resolve this matter in our Toy Fair coverage this coming Sunday
Tonight at 8PM/7C, Homer discovers that the secret to life is to pray for things, and his prayers are answered, including one that ends up with him owning the church.

Also, tonight is the premiere of the Simpsons edition of 'Inside The Actors Studio' on Bravo at 8PM with other airings during the week (check your local listings).

As we reported last month, the shipping of Playmates' mail-away figures was delayed as they were waiting on a final shipment from the factory. They have received the last of the Celebrity mail-away sets and they are shipping out to collectors now. Brian Holmes and others have informed us that they received the figures today.
... my face would be on a bunch of crappy merchandise!' Several years ago, we never would've imagined the boom in Simpsons merchandising that we've had or even that we'd be less than two weeks from the 300th episode of the 'The Simpsons'. We're certainly not complaining, though! Snpp.com webmaster Jouni informs us that USA Today has a great article up on this momentous occasion, including a well-rounded list of 25 Simpsons goodies currently available or coming soon. Woo-hoo!
Michael Crawford is back again tonight with another Simpsons review. This time Michael takes on the newly released Faces of Springfield Series 2 with Moe and Barney, which is showing up now at TRU and EB stores. He gives his fairly positive thoughts on these new 9" figures in this latest review (if it is not on the front page make sure to check the Cartoon Review Guide for 2/7/03).
We've got good news for collectors who were concerned about the high price of the Moe's Tavern playset. Electronics Boutique stores have lowered the price to $29.99. SCS Deputy Gooker1 also informed us that if you ordered it at 39.99 online and call EB, they'll refund you $10 for the difference. You also can get $10 off your order if you order both Moe's and the KBBL Studios set.
