The Simpsons Coalport Ceramics – Mush!

Line: Coalport ceramic figures
Year: 2005

Coalport The Simpsons MushFrom the classy shores of England come these equally-classy ceramic sculptures. Coalport Porcelain Works produced a limited run of a series of spectacular figures featuring The SimpsonsĀ along with other popular Springfieldians. This one is titled “Mush!”, and it sits in a place of prominence among my collection. They don’t come cheap however, and prices are only likely to go higher. At the moment the prices can vary by up to $50, so don’t rush into buying one. Shop around first.

Mine is number 279 from a worldwide run of 4,000. Unfortunately, Snowball’s tail broke off when I dropped something onto it. I’ll glue it back on. Eventually.

“The Homer” Model Car Kit

Line: Polar Lights model kits
Year: 2005

Simpsons The Homer Model Car KitStraight out of the second-season episode, “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”, this snap-together model kit from Polar Lights lets you build the car Homer designed (and cleverly named The Homer), which ultimately sent his half-brother Herb bankrupt.

It comes complete with tail fins, a separate sound-proof bubble dome for the kids, one of those little balls on the antenna to help you find it in a parking lot, and a horn that plays La Cucaracha – you know, if it wasn’t plastic.
