Matt Groening KidRobot figure

The Almighty Creator himself, Matt Groening, was immortalised in plastic for the first time in 2012, to commemorate the show’s 500th episode. This 6-inch figurine was released by Kidrobot, and is just one of a huge range of licensed collectibles, including several different lines of Simpsons characters.

They’re awesome, but unfortunately this is the only one I have. There’s just too many of them, and they aren’t cheap. I’ll add them to the collection someday.

The Simpsons beach scene set came with the kid’s meals in Australian Burger King and Hungry Jack’s stores in 2001. One piece was released a week, over four weeks, fitting together to create the whole scene. As far as I know, this set was only released in Australia.
