Gift Collection figure set – Vivid Imaginations

Year: 1997
Line: Vivid Imaginations
Set: 7 – Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Krusty, Homer badge

Simpsons Gift Collection Vivid ImaginationsThe Simpsons Gift Collection, from Vivid Imaginations, is an exception to my rule of not displaying boxes. Why this? I don’t really know. I just found it still boxed, and it seemed like if I wanted to open it in the future I could, but I could never unopen it.

Weirdly, I’ve noticed that when this set is being sold online, it’s almost always still in the box. Why is this the one thing that absolutely everyone was reluctant to open?

Well, everyone except for the original owner of this extra, individual Krusty figure I have.

This sandcastle set continues the beach theme that fast food places put The Simpsons in for a while. It came in KFC Kids Meals in Australia in 1997 as four separate pieces: two big ones with Homer and Marge/Lisa form the base, a circular Bart piece sits on top and holds them together, and Maggie sits above that.
