Default Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart and Collectable Minifigures S2

So Lego has just put out information about the next wave of Simpsons Collectable Minifigures and next big Simpsons set: The Kwik-E-Mart

From the Kwik-E-Mart press release and Brickset:
Quote:
US $199.99 - CA $229.99 - DE 199.99€ - UK £169.99 - DK 1699.00 DKK. Available May 2015.

Visit The Kwik-E-Mart—Springfield’s favourite convenience store!

Welcome to The Kwik-E-Mart—your one-stop shop for convenience foods at inconvenient prices! This highly detailed and iconic LEGO version of The Simpsons store is packed with more rich, colorful details than a Mr. Burns birthday cake has candles! Walk under the huge Kwik-E-Mart sign and join Homer, Marge and Bart as they browse the aisles filled with beauty products, diapers, dog food, pastries, fruits, vegetables and more—including Krusty-O’s and Chef Lonelyheart’s Soup for One. Then head over to the refrigerated cases where you’ll find Buzz Cola, chocolate milk, various other drinks and snacks… and frozen Jasper!

There’s also a Buzz Cola soda fountain, juice dispensers, coffee machine, arcade games, ATM and stacks of Powersauce boxes. At the counter, Apu is ready to tempt you with a variety of printed magazines, comic books, cards, tofu hot dogs, freshly expired donuts and his ever-popular hallucination-inducing Squishees. At the back, there’s a storage closet complete with rat and an exit. On the roof you’ll discover Apu’s secret vegetable garden, while outside this amazing model features bright-yellow walls, 2 phone booths, a stack of purple crates, and a dumpster area with ‘El Barto’ graffiti, opening door and an iconic blue dumpster that also opens.

You can also remove the roof and open out the rear walls for easy access. This set also includes Snake (a.k.a. Jailbird), who loves nothing more than stealing cars and robbing the Kwik-E-Mart—but this time Chief Wiggum is hot on his tail in his police car. Capture this bandit and return peace to the town of Springfield and the amazing Kwik-E-Mart. This fantastic set includes 6 minifigures with assorted accessory elements: Homer Simpson, Bart Simpson, Marge Simpson, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Chief Wiggum and Snake (a.k.a. Jailbird).

The first thing I looked for in this description was a frozen Jasper and yep it's there. Good work Lego!

It would be great though if it also included a hidden camera hat for Homer. Just go about your daily routine like I'm not wearing the hat.

The Simpsons figures (Bart, Homer, and Marge) in the Kwik-E-Mart set look the same as the ones in the first wave of Simpsons Collectable Minifigures, as does Maggie from the new wave of Collectable Minifigures (the only difference being she now comes with Little Santa's Helper instead of Bobo). That is kind of dissapointing, but I guess with Maggie there isn't much else to put her in, 'cept maybe her star shaped snow gear.

They at least made some changes to most of the returning characters. In the Collectable Minifigures, Homer, Marge, and Lisa are in formal clothes, and Bart is Bartman. Apu is in a different uniform. Wiggum has at least some donut icing/jam on his shirt and face.

That being said, the Kwik-E-Mart looks freaking amazing. So full of details.

More interested in this set than the Simpson House and the second wave of figures looks better to me as well.

Eurobricks just put up a review of the minifigures.

Seems each box will give you 3 full sets and 12 spares, which ain't bad. Case breakdowns were:
5 Homer in his best suit and tie
5 Groundskeeper Willie
5 Bart as Bartman
4 Marge in a fancy dress
4 Lisa with Snowball II
4 Maggie with Santa’s Little Helper
4 Milhouse as Fallout Boy
4 Smithers
4 Dr Hibbert
3 Edna Krabappel
3 Comic Book Guy
3 Martin Prince
3 Professor Frink
3 Hans Moleman
3 Selma
3 Patty

Wish they put out a few other characters besides the family again. My inner completionist needs to complete the set!
