Springfield's Favorite Homies

Get those quarters ready! You'll need them to grab up Tomy's line of "Capsule World" Simpsons figurines. Member shasteve reports finding them in a NY area Pizza Hut. These mini PVC figurines are packaged in small capsules and available in gum-ball type dispenser machines. Each figure will cost one dollar.

It's that time again, we bring you yet another interview with an SCS member, this time we've brought you 20 Questions with LIChief1. Make sure you check out the SCS Magazine for more of our 20 Questions member interviews.

MWC Gets On Board The School Bus

With all the new WoS stuff hitting now, it may be easy to overlook the new School Bus, but Michael Crawford thinks that collectors shouldn't be so quick to pass it up. Check out his site to get his thoughts on this vehicle (located in the cartoon review section for the date 9/13/2002 if it's not on the front page).

Following it's newly minted tradition of imprecise communication, Toys 'R Us / Amazon has sent an email indicating that the Main Street playset will no longer be available. From similar emails which were sent about the Bowling Alley playset, we know that this does NOT mean that any preorders have been cancelled. Rather, they don't expect to be able to take any more orders for the set in the forseeable future.

The TRU exclusive Bowling Alley playset, featuring Jacques and Bowling Marge, is back in stock at Toys 'R Us / Amazon website. Follow this link to place an order while supplies last.

Will Drop Pants For Main Street

The SCS's own Toys 'R Us goon, DontLeaveUsJebus, informs us that his TRU (Fullerton, CA) received a case of the exclusive Main Street set today. This comes with Crazy Old Man and Squeaky Voice Teen and works with over 95 figures. It has a price of $59.99. Collectors should expect to see this showing up in all areas soon.
