Two Multi-character Sets Coming to Stores This Fall
Friday, June 09, 2006

Two Simpsons deluxe boxed sets featuring multiple characters from the smash FOX television series will be making their way to store shelves late this fall.

THE ISLAND OF DR. HIBBERT (from "Treehouse of Horror XIII") -- Originally planned for release as multiple characters sold separately, will now be an all-inclusive boxed set. Re-creating a moment from a fan-favorite episode, the box set features Dr. Hibbert, Comic Book Guy, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie in a side-splitting Simpsons-esque tableau -- the family has been turned into animals in this parody of The Island of Dr. Moreau.

LARD LAD -- Captures a hilarious moment from "Treehouse of Horror IV." In the episode, when Homer steals the enormous donut that Lard Lad holds over his head, the massive mascot comes to life and hunts Homer down, demanding justice. This all-inclusive boxed set includes articulated Homer, Lard Lad with removable donut and Springfield cityscape diorama.

The first series of McFarlane's individual Simpsons action figures is planned for release in early 2007. Stay tuned to spawn.com for details as they become available.
