SCS staff member 'blueduck37' attended EA's launch party for The Simpsons Game at Universal Studios in California this past Tuesday. The game was released on the X-Box 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 2, PSP, Nintendo Wii, and Nintendo DS systems this week. Matt Groening, James L. Brooks, Matt Selman, and others were in attendance at the party. Fans also had an opportunity to demo the game at stations outside. A report with images and video is available in our SCS Magazine. The No Homers Club has a report as well.
McFarlane's deluxe box set-- seriously, it's pretty big-- is now available at several online retailers (Entertainment Earth, among others) and some physical stores that cater to collector types (comic shops, the Virgin Megastore). Michael Crawford doesn't take Paul Anka's advice and looks at the big guy anyway, on his Review of the Week website. Michael gives a pretty decent review, with some minor quibbles. The biggest problem may be finding a place to display it. If the review's not on the front page, check out his archives for the review (dated October 31).
SCS member kermy812 points us to a YouTube video of a Bart Qee Exhibit at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood. People are getting creative with the Qees. Want to get some of your own? BigBadToyStore has a preorder for a case of 24 Bart Qee figures (3"). Entertainment Earth has a blank 10" figure for you to create your own design on. Both are preorders, but should be shipping soon.
