The Simpsons Lard Lad McFarlane Box Set

Line: McFarlane box sets
Year: 2007

The Simpsons Lard Lad McFarlane box setBetween 2006 and 08, McFarlane released a few lines of really nice, detailed figures and “box sets”, based on various iconic moments from the show.

This one depicts the classic scene where Homer steals the Lard Lad statue’s donut, shortly before the town’s advertising mascots come to life, in the Treehouse of Horror IV segment, “Attack of the 50 Foot Eyesores”.

A favourite episode of many fans (including myself), this makes for a favourite item of many collectors (including myself). Having a large-scale Lard Lad like this is an attention-grabber, even among the rest of the Simpsons merchandise in the room.

Bart Simpson Winchells donut figureThese figurines were available in Winchell’s Donut House stores in the US in 1993, and originally came with a sheet of speech bubble stickers (as seen below). I found the Bart one in the Chapel Street Bazaar, in Melbourne, but haven’t been able to find the Homer one. (below photo from Simpson Winchells donut figure
