There have been reports that the LEGO The Simpsons Series Minifigures (71005) are starting to hit shelves early at various retailers such as Walmart and now Toys R Us. The official release date for the minifigures is still two weeks away on May 1st. In preparation for the release, a reader who is also a fellow member of SandLUG has found some at LEGOLAND and provided a feel guide for the minifigures. Since feeling for the heads may be somewhat difficult, luckily the characters also have accessory pieces that can help out in identifying them. Thank you to Charlie for the guide.
