Tonight MWC looks at the Military Antiques Shop set (now hitting stores) at Michael's Review of the Week. Hoping not to end up bound and gagged like poor Wiggum, Mr. Crawford ventured into the shop for a critical analysis and he seems to like what he saw. (If the review is not on the front page make sure to check out the Cartoon Reviews archive for the date 8/7/03.)
Many people have been inquiring about the upcoming Collector mini-bust shown at the San Diego Comic Con and member Sideshow Brant of Sideshow Toys has given us the details. The Collector is a 1,000-piece exclusive to Sideshow's website (though you may find it in some European shops later on) and will be up for preorder soon. Up for preorder now are the non-exclusive Apu and Comic Book Guy busts from the third series.
After a mini-release in June, the Simpsons Screamers dolls have now hit mainstream retail. SCS member Ketracel White found them at Target for $7.99 each. These dolls shout out up to 8 unique phrases from the show when you squeeze, shake or set them down.
Some miscellaneous Simpsacrap has been released lately, including the much anticipated THOH Zombie bendies set which is now available at Wicked Cool Stuff and should be in stores like Suncoast soon. Also, the Flashing 'Cheers' Wall Clock has been spotted at a Dapy's store. This indicates many of the other upcoming clocks by Wesco are out too or should be out soon. Thanks to SCS members OliverDubin and SloppyJimbo for the respective heads-up.
To follow up on an earlier news item, the question of whether the Kellogg figurines were the same as last year's capsule figurines has been answered. SCS member Doctor Colossus¬†has informed us that while the sculpts are nearly the same as the capsule ones, the Kelloggs minis are actually a bit larger, as this image demonstrates.
