If you're not into the Simpsons, and the sets contain parts you'd like, you can probably sell or trade the minifigs alone for 50% or so of the cost of the set. Hold onto the figs until a little after retirement, and that' s probably a 75% return. It's a little bit of work, but a lot a bit of savings.

I'm seeing the same reports as everyone else, which all seem to be originating from the same place. The removal of all Simpsons projects from Cussoo seems to be a pretty good indication that there is something to it though.
As for your notion that this could only be bagged minifigures. I only wish. Minifigure collectors seem to get a lot of grief since it gets away from Lego's main point (which is the build). But for me, the minifigure is the only thing that one can't make for oneself (bad paint jobs and decals aside). It's not that I don't want sets, but sometimes I find myself looking at sets saying 'I can build that with the bricks I already have, and probably better'.
I get sooo jealous of every other Lego knock off brand that seems to figure out how to make all the ancillary characters of any given theme in individual packs. I can't even get Daredevil but for some reason my friend has a pack of Minimates Alpha Flight figures.
