If you have never seen an episode of The Simpsons, well, you are just down right un-American and should be quite ashamed of yourself. The series has had a cult like following for the past 23 seasons that it has been on primetime TV. That being said, the landmark 500th episode of this consistently relevant show is due to air this month and what better way to immortalize the creator of such an historic show than by introducing a 6’ vinyl figurine of the man himself. The acclaimed creator of the show, Matt Groening, is well over due for some KidRobot love. The toy will come fully laced with director’s pad and pencil accessories. Groening is also sporting his signature goatee and glasses with a red and black director’s jacket on his back. Available now at Kidrobot.com.
KidRobot is no stranger to doing mash-ups with The Simpsons franchise. In 2008, they released twenty-four mini figurines ranging from the always clever killing duo, Itchy and Scratchy, to the booze guzzling alcoholic known as Duff Man! The company introduced a second series of vinyl toys in 2010 that included Zombie Simpsons and everyone’s favorite shaky handed surgeon, Dr. Nick.
The collaboration between the two companies is a match made in toy store heaven. With the countless amount of characters The Simpsons produce, KidRobot will have no shortage of ideas for creating new toys in future.
