The McFarlane Toys first full Simpsons line is one of the most anticipated series of action figures in recent memory. Six new figures and one new box set are headed your way, and we're very excited about the lineup.
"Simple Simpson" -- Homer and Bart as the Pie Man and the Cupcake Kid, respectively. This fan-favorite episode originally -- originally aired on May 2, 2004 -- was a parody of Spider-Man 2. "Wherever danger appears, the Pie Man will strike!"
Homer & Krusty (of Homie the Clown) -- Homer becomes strangely fixated with the prospect of becoming a clown, and enters Krusty's training camp. Harkening back to the fifteenth episode of the Simpsons sixth season, which originally aired on Feb. 12, 1995.

Homer and Bart: "Why You..." -- featuring Homer and Bart, pushed to their limits. The father and son dynamic, Simpsons style.
Kamp Krusty -- When summer camp ("The Krustiest Place On Earth") doesn't turn out to be all he had hoped for, Bart stages a coup.
Treehouse of Horrors XV: "Marge and Homer in the Belly of the Boss" -- Originally airing on Nov. 7, 2004, this episode featured the Simpsons being miniaturized and injected into the body of Mr. Burns in a parody of the 1966 classic science-fiction movie, The Fantastic Voyage.
Boxed Set: Itchy & Scratchy: "Cape Feare: Spay Anything" -- This multiple-figure set re-creates one of Scratchy's most harrowing moments -- he sees a sign at Itchy's Cat Hospital that says "We Pay Your Pet $75." The minute Scratchy enters the hospital, Itchy reveals the sign said "We Spay Your Pet $75"!
The Simpsons Series 1 is scheduled for release in January 2007.
