$4 a pop is still high, but I suppose in the grand scheme no more crazy than what I've paid for some of the CMF stuff at $3 for fewer "decent" figures. And if this release serves as a good barometer for getting CMF lines for Marvel, Star Wars, etc (let them work out the licensing now that all of that is in Disney's hand), I guess it's buying it.
There are actually some decent things in there, even when none of the figures really shine to me (the lack of Moe, Barney, Lenny, Carl, Skinner, and a whole mess of other semi-regulars stand out), there are some nice points in there. Apu is probably the one I just want a bunch of for that Squishee Cup. Printed sleeves on Bart, Homer, Millhouse, and Nelson are potentially huge. New pie with Krusty, three-headed fish bowl, and polo shirt torso printing are all good as well. All of the printed tiles also are good (especially the donut and remote with homer).
The only one that bugs me is Lisa, since she has the wrong saxophone. That's an alto, and she plays a baritone...
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.
