Recommendation: yes 9 / 10 by WhiteFang

Although I am not a full pledged Simpsons fan, but through the release of these minifigures, I have learnt to appreciate them very much which make me felt pretty positive towards this entire new approach. On a very positive note, I totally enjoy the different forms of integration throughout my different LEGO Themes in my collection.

Recommendation: meh 4.3 / 5 from 70 reviews

All figures and accesories were accounted for. Each figure came in it's own zip lock bag with very carefully opened original bag as well with everything that should come with them. Had one or two that were very faintly scuffed on the back side, but nothing bad, no printing messed up or nothing. I'm just SUPER detailed and noticed, most wouldn't, and wasn't enough for me to complain. Very happy with my purchase!

Recommendation: meh 8 / 10 by Jay

The printing and moulding of his headpiece are sublime, nailing all the right features such as Homer's stubble, receding hairline, wispy hairs at the top of his mostly bald head and round bulbous eyes. His attire is a little drab, just a plain white polo t-shirt with no back printing and sky blue pants. I wish they had included more details such as some back printing or even some donut speckles on his shirt, but at least we get a solitary curved line to indicate his beer belly as consolation. That being said, the minifigure is more or less true to his appearance in the TV show, so I can't fault it there.

Recommendation: no 4 / 5 by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

Overall, the LEGO Minifigures – The Simpsons Series (71005) was better than I expected. LEGO did a great job in getting the various details of the characters in the minifigure designs. It was good to see that these minifigures aren't the same as the ones in the Simpsons House. LEGO stayed true to the cartoon series and the minifigures were well represented.

Recommendation: no 3.82 / 5 from 38 reviews

I personally think that LEGO has done a really good job here in order to produce such a difficultly designed series. I believe that the figures are great and the accessories that they come with are good choices, as well as being detailed. Each of their heads are well molded, with a few minor exceptions on just a couple. The only thing that I would see as a disappointment is the price. It seems a bit much for something so simple and small. However, in a tough economy, where prices are rising each day EVERYWHERE, it isn't that bad of an increase. Overall, the collection is brilliant as it offers a nice range of characters for those who can't afford the house, and I will be sure to try to collect them all.

They're just okay. Pick them up if you're a fan, but I don't think you'll regret not getting them.
