The Simpsons...toys!

Not a huge surprise, as McFarlane Toys is best known for coming out with the best-looking action figures out there, so the announcement that they have been tapped to support the release of THE SIMPSONS MOVIE on July 27th, with a line of intricately detailed action figures, was good news all around. The characters will feature incredible character detail (see below), but also a voice-chip technology, which will allow them to "speak" exclusive dialog from the film. Each figure comes mounted to a customized base, and, as an added feature, the “Movie Mayhem” line of figures come with interlocking bases so the figures can be combined to create one large scene. The line will include a 6-inch figure line and three boxed sets.

6-inch figure line
* Movie Mayhem - Bart
* Movie Mayhem - Homer
* Movie Mayhem - Marge
* Movie Mayhem - Lisa and Maggie
* Who’s A Good Piggy? – Homer and Piggy
(6-inch figures; Approximate Retail Price: $12.99 – $14:99; Available Summer 2007 at Mass retailers nationwide)
