The first series run of Lego the Simpsons was pretty special to me because it was a combination of two of my favourite things; the Simpsons and Lego. While my admiration for the Simpsons has certainly dwindled throughout the years, I still wanted to collect that Lego series because it seemed pretty cool. So when I heard about a second series of Lego the Simpsons was releasing I thought I might be interested if they (Lego) released popular characters.
Unfortunately I was disappointed by the characters released in the second series. They gave us again the Simpsons kin, but also characters that I find boring such as Patty and Selma (who are supposed to be annoying characters), and Hans Moleman and Martin Prince. I was like, are you serious? Who would want these characters? But anyway, I don’t want to rant. The only redeeming character that I really wanted was of Comic Book Guy, aka Jeff Albertson. So rather than buy the whole series 2 of the Simpsons, I decided to only get minifigures of Comic Book Guy.
The first series of the Simpsons was pretty accurate towards the characters, yet I was again disappointed by the second series with the lack of accuracy. I mean CBG is supposed to be fat, yet Lego didn’t bother with releasing a bigger minifigure body for him. While I understand how complex creating a new body can be, I just think creating a wider body would have been nice. I was also disappointed by the lack of paint on the back of CBG. This second series of Lego the Simpsons felt rushed and almost like a money grab (which as a Simpsons fan, I’m used to). For this reason, I really can’t recommend this series and in fact it’s the worst Lego Simpsons toy ever!
