The Elvis Costello/Simpsons action figure

Postby And No Coffee Table » Tue Sep 09, 2014 5:45 pm

John Foyle posted this in the "Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff" thread, and that was a HUGE MISTAKE, because this is without question the most significant EC news ever.

The National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products have just announced the next line-up of celebrities to be featured as part of The Simpsons exclusive “25 of the Greatest Guest Stars” program. The fourth installment of talent in this limited-edition boutique collection includes Buzz Aldrin, Tom Jones, Elvis Costello, Weird Al, and Aerosmith.

Looks like the release date is October.

These are so cool. Went out to Toys R Us during lunch and got me a Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, and John Entwistle.

Will this be available outside of the USA, I wonder? I don't see any of this stuff listed on the Toys'R'Us site in Australia...


EDIT: Looks like eBay will be the only option for us non-Murricans

As they always say........if it sounds too good to be true, it is ! :roll:

Zavvi now saying "release date June 6 2015" ! :evil: Must be when they are getting a shipment over. :(

So..........all we need is one of us with a really good contact the other side of the pond to do a bulk order for us, ship them over, and we can all split the postage etc.......................what do you think ?

Any ideas anyone ? :?

I think I can live without it until June!

I like that it's not suitable for children under 3 but the other label says aged 14+ :?

Is that Lisa's saxophone? Because I don't think Elvis owns one.
