The prototypes were first previewed at last month's Comic Con in San Diego, but now McFarlane Toys has done professional prototype shots of their upcoming set of manimals- "The Island of Dr. Hibbert boxed set". The detailed prototype images are available at the Spawn.com website. Re-creating a moment from a fan-favorite episode, the box set features Dr. Hibbert, Comic Book Guy, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie as manimals. It is due out this Fall. Thanks to Red The Trucker for the heads up.
The Simpsons Season 8 DVD set hits stores today. Best Buy and Circuit City have it for a $29.99 sale price. The DVD features all uncut Season 8 episodes, commentary tracks on all episodes, deleted scenes, and other animation showcases. Full listings on episodes and extras are available in our Release Guide. Reminder- There will be two versions of the DVD both available at retail- one with a Maggie head (seen to the left) and a normal box. Other than the box, there is no difference between the two sets. Easter eggs are being discussed in our forums.
Last month, between July 19 and 23, well over 100,000 geeks descended upon sunny San Diego in southern California for the year's top pop culture gathering... Comic Con International. The SCS was there as usual and we have added images and information in our SCS Magazine. We enjoyed seeing everyone again and we do hope to see more Simpsageeks next year. With the Simpsons movie being released next summer the same weekend as the Con, expect lots of Simpsons-related excitement in San Diego. Keep your eye on the official Comic Con website as 2007 approaches for information on registering!
There weren't too many Simpsons products on display in general at the San Diego Comic Con last month, but Gentle Giant delivered the goods as usual. They had on display all of their Simpsons bust-ups, including a number of new ones. These new prototypes included: Homer seducing Marge, Ralph Wiggum with a Valentine card, and Itchy ripping out Scratchy's heart. The theme of this series appears to be love/hearts. No word yet on a release date. Upcoming series this year include a music-themed third series and a fourth series themed again around THOH.
