Welcome to our coverage of Toy Fair 2004. In this first article, we take a look at the World of Springfield offerings by Playmates Toys. This is the planned 2004 lineup, as we first revealed back in October. There are at least 3 exclusives planned for this year (including THOH 5 and a Stonecutters Hall), but no official announcement has been made yet. Stay tuned to SCS for info on that front and more WoS news in the coming months. Please note that while future series of the rerelease dioramas were on display, those have been cancelled.

Series 15 is in stores now and features Deep Space Homer, Manjula, the Octoplets, Brandine, Comic Book Guy, and Handsome Moe. The Power Plant Lunch Room with Frank Grimes is the accompanying playset.
The Series 16 figures (due out in late Spring) include Agnes Skinner, Buggin' Out Bart, Devil Homer, the three nerds, and Artie Ziff. Some of the planned accessories are pictured here.
The Series 16 playset is the Town Square featuring the Jebediah Springfield statue. The head will be removeable, as seen in one of the images. The set will also come with Bart's backpack (which he used to steal the statue's head). The included figure is Jebediah Springfield himself.
Series 17 is scheduled to include Bigfoot Homer, Ninja Bart, Richard and Lewis, Arnie Pie, Flying Hellfish Grampa, and Cecil Terwilliger. The playset will be the School Playground with Janey.
Series 18 is scheduled to include Lindsay Neagle, Sanjay, Uncle, Tuxedo Kang and Kodos, and Akira. The playset will be the Flanders Rumpus Room with Maude Flanders.
Seen here are planned future rerelease dioramas with resculpted figures. We were told a while back by Playmates that these had been cancelled due to slow sales of the first series, but Playmates displayed these anyway. See our Release Guide for more details on this series.
