MWC (P)reviews Be-Sharp Barney

A little sneak preview for collectors (except those who attended our SDCC panel), Michael Crawford looks at the latest Be-Sharp figure tonight at Michael's Review of the Week. With the set now completed, MWC examines the John Lennon of the gang- Barney. (If the review is not on the front page, check out the Cartoon Reviews archive for the date 8/21/03.)

Be-Sharp Barney Orders Processing

Orders for Be-Sharp Barney are starting to be processed, according to the mail-away rebate inquiry site. Barney is the last of the Be-Sharps. All three previous mail-aways (Homer for Series 10, Apu for Series 11, and Skinner for Series 12) are still available for those catching up on the set. See our F.A.Q. for more info.

The first image of the Krustylu Studios bendable set can be seen at online retailer Entertainment Earth. This third series of bendies by NJ Croce Co (the first and second series are still available) includes figures of Krusty the Klown, Sideshow Mel, Sideshow Bob, Corporal Punishment, and Bart wearing an 'I Love Krusty' shirt. Single-carded versions of the main five will likely be available, but a Mr. Teeny figure will only be available in the box set.
