Not really a Simpsons collector but I'd buy an Al in a second!

Was wondering, has NECA said if these will be compatible with the Playmates line?... I mean, if they are just doing guests and not the (humongous) regular cast why not?...

If these were compatible to Playmates' WOS line, I would be all over this. If not, I wouldn't really be interested. Since the celebrity aspect seems key, I'm assuming these would be based on likenesses. In which case, I'd like to see the following:
• Mel Gibson
• Leonard Nimoy
• Lady Gaga
• John Waters
• Bette Midler
• Mark Hamill
• Matt Groening
• David Duchovny
• Gillian Anderson

If they were open to just celebrity-voiced characters, I'd like the following
• Mona Simpson (Glenn Close)
• Rabbi Krustofski (Jackie Mason)
• Stacy Lovell (Kathleen Turner)
• Michael Jackson (Michael Jackson)
• Jessica Lovejoy (Meryl Streep)

I keep getting a bad feeling that these will end up being like those blind box figures that came out a few years ago.

According to the press release, the figures will represent celebrities, athletes and musicians who appeared as themselves.

"The first five guest stars to be featured will include James Brown, Tom Hanks, Kid Rock, Yao Ming and Hugh Hefner."

It appears NECA is planning a steady roll-out, which means no blind-box figures like the dunny figures from KidRobot.

I can't imagine they would be in scale with the World of Springfield figures from Playmates Toys. I'm guessing that they are more likely to resemble the highly detailed figures McFarlane Toys did a few years ago.

actually it has been said on neca's twitter that they will be in scale and same style as playmates. These will complement the previous collections.

That is fantastic news! Very excited for this line now!

‏@NECA_TOYS Scale w Playmates “@Willdogma: On the subject of the Simpsons Guest Stars,will they be in scale with the previous Simpsons line?”

Quote:
Will these have more articulation or similar to Playmates?

Quote:
‏@NECA_TOYS similar. Following that style as if the line continued w/ all the celebrity guests. Stuff is looking great!

That's great news! I stand corrected.

I'll have to dig out all my old Playmates figures and set up the World of Springfield again. :D

James Brown looks the best of the first bunch--

Tom Hanks and Hef- are kind of bleh...

Hef looks good to me. Yao is excellently sculpted but as far as a character choice, meh. Hanks is the only one I'm really disappointed about since it doesn't really look like him. Then again, he didn't look much like Hanks on the show either. I hope they show at least the first two waves at SDCC

I never collected this line, but it still awesome that these will still be in scale with the previous toy lines. Even those from other companies!

We definitely NEED NEED NEEEEEEEED the Ramones! As well as Elvis Costello and Weird AL! Heck, I'd even pick up Metallica and the Red Hot Chili Peppers! Very excited by the potential of this line...

I'm a little late on responding to this but this is the first I've heard about these. Is it really confirmed that these will be to scale and fit with the Playmates line? I have the entire Playmates collection...every figure, playset, exclusive, etc, and would be all over these if that's true!!

Is there a release date on these? Any news would be MUCH appreciated.

Thanks, Rick
