Recommendation: meh 4.5 / 5 by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

I would say that Series 2 is a slight improvement from Series 1 (71005) with a majority of new characters being introduced. The only downside I have is including the core Simpsons family again albeit with new outfits. Plus we wouldn't have a Simpsons theme without the family to anchor the sets.

Recommendation: meh 4.33 / 5 from 27 reviews

Great set!! There were a ton of them at the local store below our office building and suffice to say I spent 10-15 mins a day feeling my way through the bags to get 4 daily packs. Each figure has their own characteristics and accessories to easily avoid doubles. A few tips on "feeling" through the bag: Patti and Selma have the biggest heads, cat (Snowball II) and dog (Santa's Little Helper) can easily be identified with different tails; immediately tell the difference between short and long legs; easily feel Prof Fink's beaker, Willy's plunger, Bart's slingshot, comic book guy and millhouse's slushie drinks; Marge's hair stands out. Homer and Doc Hibbert are hard to tell apart as they have the same flat brick accessory and almost the same head shape. Wasn't too pleased with the repeating Simpsons family cast, but I guess they have to make it anyway since series 1 has been retired. Hoping to soon see Moe, Duff Man, Skinner, Mayor Quimby, Bumblebee guy, and Lenny, Karl and Barney to complete the tavern gang.

Recommendation: meh 8.2 / 10 by WhiteFang

Prepare yourself to get at least a set or just a box. I am sure this will be a fitting series within your display collection especially when you are a Simpsons fan.

Recommendation: no 3.8 / 5 from 49 reviews

Really really disappointing. These were very expensive. There were 4 bags with one character in each bag. Unfortunately we got 3 Dr. Hibbards. For that price we should have received 4 different characters. It's really easy to check the item number on the bag. Very unhappy with this purchase.

I was really happy with the contents of this blind bag purchase and on a whole, I think this blind bag series is very well made and well worth picking up, especially for Simpsons fans.

Recommendation: no 2 / 5 by Jay

He's pretty boring, but being a main character, I don't see how LEGO and Fox would ever not have a Simpsons Minifigure series without Homer.

I am certainly of the opinion that this series is an improvement over the last one, where one or two minifigures simply didn't capture their on screen counterpart's appearance very well. This time every figure looks great to me, although I am struggling to pick an absolute favourite. Waylon Smithers, Edna Krabappel and Professor Frink are definite contenders.
