Mmmm, Onion....

It's a proud day for Simpsons collecting geeks... we've been mocked by the pros! A new article (entitled "Suicide Letter Full Of Simpsons References") in The Onion, a satire-based newspaper, features numerous episode references and humorous images featuring the World of Springfield action figures. Perhaps we have an Onion staff writer in our geeky midsts?

There hasn't been much news lately on the WoS front, but here's where we stand now: The final series of figures, Series 16, is due out in a few weeks (likely early July, based on preorder estimates). The accompanying Town Square environment will follow about a month after that. Around that same time, Playmates is planning on rereleasing older figures, as we reported in April. The rereleases will be Toys R Us exclusives and should be available in late July/early August. These will be the original sculpts in their original packaging. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks.
