via the305. Ahh… I love Kidrobot. As an avid comic book/vinyl toy/all around geek, I make sure to stop by Kidrobot everytime I go to LA, NYC, or Miami. Kidrobot is planning to release the second series of their highly popular Simpsons vinyl figures. More photos after the break. Basically you buy a ‘blind box’, open it, and then discover which figure you get! It’s the same way a lot of Japanese Anime pvc figures are sold. In the meantime, if you don’t live in one of the cities listed above, you can buy some of the first series’ blind boxes via Amazon. PURCHASE (Series 1 – Blind Box): Amazon
Once again Matt Groening and The Simpsons team up with Kidrobot to release a second mini series of collectible vinyl fun. The 25-character series features some of Springfield’s most notable citizens including extended family members and lovable barflies, as well as alternate versions of your favorite nuclear family along with two top secret chases. The blind boxed series will retail for $9.95 US and releases on October 28th.
