LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 (71009) Review

Way back in August of last year, there was talk about the Series 2 LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures (71009) even though Series 1 was still in stores. That was when speculation started up of who will be included in Series 2 before LEGO officially revealed them back in March.

There are 60 minifigures in a box and you can pretty much find three complete sets in a full unopened box. Each of the packets are $3.99 and they contain a random character from the wave. I’ve managed to collect all 16 from Series 2 on my first try with the help of my feel guide which hopefully you can use as well to find the character(s) you want.

LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 (71009) Showing Up at Target But…

There have been reports that the LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 (71009) has started to show up at various Target stores and being displayed on endcaps like the ones you see in the image above and on the shelves. Unfortunately, many of the stores have a strict release date of May 1st so they won’t even sell them even if they’re displayed on the floor which is such a tease. However you might get real lucky and find some stores that will sell them but that’s pretty rare. The Target DPCI for the Series 2 Simpsons minifigures is 204-00-1379 if you have trouble finding them when they are officially released in May. Thanks to Multigasmgeek for the DPCI number.

While you’re there, why not go see if the LEGO City Go-Kart Racer (30314) is available there as well as there have been reports that the polybag has started to show up. The DPCI number for the polybag is 204-00-0291.

    LEGO The Simpsons Series 2 Minifigures (71009) Feel Guide

    LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 (71009)

    Now that the LEGO The Simpsons Series 2 Minifigures (71009) have been officially revealed, it’s time to do our best to help you guys figure out which minifigures are in each packet with this handy feel guide. Although this wave of LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures has lots of new characters for you to find, they seem to be a little harder to feel than the first series given the assortment of parts that are available with the characters.

    The LEGO The Simpsons Series 2 Minifigures (71009) will be available on May 1st but as usual, some retailers like Toys R Us, Walgreens, Walmart, and Target will probably be selling them mid-to-late April.

    1. Homer

    You would think that the 2×2 tile would be an easy giveaway to finding Homer but think again since there are five other characters that have a similar part. His round head is the thing you should be feeling for while confirming with the tile piece.

    2. Marge

    Marge should be fairly easy to find with her long, distinct head/hair piece.

    3. Lisa

    Lisa’s cat, Snowball II, would be the easiest thing to feel for since her head piece is really similar to Maggie’s.

    4. Maggie

    Maggie’s head is almost identical to Lisa’s so you should be feeling for Santa’s Little Helper. Her body is also a good indicator because it is just one piece that is uniquely shaped.

    5. Bartman

    Bartman is really easy to find with his spiky head piece. The slingshot is also helpful.

    6. Fallout Boy

    Fallout Boy could be easy to find with his big nose. The Buzz Cola cylinder can piece is also a very good piece to feel for if you’re looking for hiim.

    7. Comic Book Guy

    Comic Book Guy is another character that has the 2×2 tile piece. The Squishee cup piece is the main thing you should look for.

    8. Martin Prince

    The easiest thing to feel for when you’re looking for Martin is the book.

    9. Professor Frink

    Professor Frink is fairly easy to find with his elongated head piece and the science beaker.

    10. Hans Moleman

    When looking for Hans, feel for the 1×2 license tile but make sure that you don’t feel Marge’s hair/head piece because she also has the tile too. Combine that with this walnut-shaped head, and you got yourself a Hans.

    11. Selma

    Selma can be slightly hard to find with her head/hair piece that’s similar to her twin sister Patty. It’s a little different that Patty’s but you can confirm her with the 2×2 eye vision chart tile that she has.

    12. Patty

    Like with Selma, Patty has a distinct bumpy head/hair piece. To distinguish her from her sister, try feeling for the purse piece.

    13. Groundskeeper Willie

    To find Willie, just search for the plunger and you’re good to go.

    14. Edna Krabappel

    Edna is another character with the 2×2 tile piece but search for the mug piece to confirm that you’ve found her.

    15. Waylon Smithers

    To find Smithers, just feel for the 2×2 plate piece since he’s the only character in Series 2 to have that part.

    16. Dr. Hibbert

    Dr. Hibbert is the last minifigure in this wave to have the 2×2 tile piece. I would suggest feeling for the head piece. It’s similar to Homer’s in terms of shape but he does have some little bumps for his hair to make him stand out.
