Ay caramba! The Lego Simpsons Series 2 Minifigures was just officially announced (here), and an early review is already up. WhiteFang of Eurobricks got ahold of these new Minifigs months early, and wrote up a full review. There is no need to read any other reviews, WhiteFang is the definitive source for the Collectible Minifigure reviews. The whole set is made of 16 figures, 10 of which are new characters, and 6 are variants from Series 1. The Lego Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 should be showing up in stores around May 2015, at the $3.99 price point. But, keep an eye out, these usually pop up a week or two early in some locations.
The Series 2 Minifigures packaging is yellow and blue this time around. Not to be confused with Series 1. Interestingly Lego didn’t go with an unique color.
If you find a box, or purchase a box you are looking at least 3 full sets of the Lego Simpsons Minifigures Series 2. The most common Minifigs are Homer is his Suit, Bartman, and Groundskeeper Willie. The uncommon figures this time are Marge in Fancy Dress, Lisa & Snowball II, Maggie & Santa’s Little Helper, Fallout Boy, Doctor Hibbert, and Waylon Smithers. The hardest to find and rare Minifigures this time around include Comic Book Guy, Martin Prince, Professor Frink, Hans Moleman, Selma Bouvier, Patty Bouvier, and Edna Krabappel.

Lego has officially revealed Series 2 of the Lego Simpsons Minifigures (71009). The announcement confirms the earlier leaked production images. It looks like this series will be filling in the cast with some of the most obvious omissions from Series 1. We have Groundskeeper Willie, Martin Price, Professor Frink, Doctor Hibbert, Patty Bouvier, Selma Bouvier, Waylon Smithers, Hans Moleman, Comic Book Guy, and Edna Krabappel. The remaining six Minifigs are recolors and variants of previously released figures. There is Fallout Boy, Bartman, Maggie Simpson, Marge Simpson, Homer Simpson, and Lisa Simpson.
The Lego Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 is an interesting set. Most of the figures come with unique accessories, usually some sort of printed tile. The best accessories are the Simpsons pets, Santa’s Little Helper and Snowball II. Hopefully there will be a Series 3 in the future. It would be awesome to get some of the bullies, Doctor Nick, or even Moe.
The Simpsons Lego Minifigures Series 2 (71009) should be hitting shelves around May. These will be available at the $3.99 price point. D’oh.
If you cannot wait for the upcoming official Lego Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart then build your own. That is exactly what Flickr user 6kyubi6 did. It sounds like this is the first in a series, as it has been deemed a part of the “Springfield Project.” This Lego Kwik-E-Mart is a thing of beauty. The whole thing is built on a studs-not-on-top (SNOT) base, which helps give this MOC an animated look. Some of the small details are genius. Keeping with the lived in appearance of the show, the air conditioning unit on the roof is leaking. There is a well made bike rack, and telephone booth. Even the dumpster is leaking a mysterious brown liquid. Then there are the custom made stickers and signs, the Kwik-E-Mart sign, various posters, and even El Barto’s signature. These, along with all of the small details really help to bring life to the scene. You can just imagine Bart and Mulhouse buying a Super Squishee. The only thing missing is Matt Groening’s signature.
