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.
A week ago the first images for a new Simpsons Minifigures Series were leaked. Based on some prototype Lego pieces it was revealed that Groundskeeper Willie, Dr. Hibbert, and Santa’s Little Helper are coming soon. Now a few more photos of Lego prototypes have been leaked. It looks like we are getting Waylon Smithers, Snake Jailbird, Comic Book Guy, Patty Bouvier, and Professor Frink. That brings the total to 7 and 1/2 Minifigures leaked. That means there are at least another 9 still unknown. There mights even be a few more Minifigs to look forward to with the rumored release of a Lego Kwik-E-Mart set.
