About two months ago, my mom told me that she had a surprise for me and handed me a package (like the one pictured to the right). I excitedly opened the package to see what was inside and found a Bart Simpson minifigure. It was cool because I had no idea that LEGO had released The Simpsons minifigures. I knew about The Simpsons House set but I didn’t know that there were plans to release other sets.
Over the next couple of weeks, I looked everywhere for these minifigures. I couldn’t find them anywhere. I started looking online and saw that I could order them. The only problem was that the packages are unmarked and you don’t really know what you’re getting (unless you can feel the character’s head).
Then I realized that there were people selling the complete sets of all 16 minifigures for slightly above what it would have cost to purchase them in stores and I knew exactly what I was getting.
The only drawback to ordering the complete set was that I didn’t get to experience the thrill of opening the packages and not knowing what I was going to get. It was okay though. I was just happy to have the complete set.
Each figure comes with at least one accessory and some come with two. Also included in each package is a checklist to mark off the minifigures as you collect them.
Here’s the full run-down of all the minifigures in the set.

I love these minifigures and have them proudly displayed on a shelf in my office. I even made a little stand for them out of LEGO. I’d say that I enjoyed assembling all the minifigures but my oldest son actually assembled them for me (he couldn’t wait to open them either).
