October 2001 Boxing Homer - link

Released in USA by Playmates Toys

Boxing Homer combines the upper half of Casual Homer (Series 4) with a new waist and legs and a new pair of gloves to create the third ToyFare exclusive figure.

This Homer Simpson variant comes from the season 8 episode "The Homer They Fall," in which Homer becomes a prizefighter under the management of Kid Moe and takes on Lucious Sweet's protege Drederick Tatum in the ring.

This figure was first offered for pre-order at a price of $17.00 including shipping from WizardWorld.com on July 10th, 2001, and at a price of $16.00 including shipping with the coupon from ToyFare magazine #49. The magazine shipped to comic book stores the following day and cost $4.99. It sold out from the web site in about 24 hours and from the magazine in about two weeks.

A rumored 2,000 of this figure's total production quantity were alloted to the web site.

Simpsons Collector Sector member willebear42 won this pre-shipment factory sample in a Playmates contest.
