Found 28th Apr 2014
Argos in store currently have the new Simpsons Minifigures for £2.29, a small saving on the £2.50 elsewhere. There are 16 to collect and these are awesome and worth more in my opinion. A must have for all Simpsons and lego fans out there :-)

Im sure it won't be long before stock is replenished, these will hold their value too! Look awesome.

Have these in entertainer at £2.50, staff member said they werent supposed to be selling until may, so maybe thats why not instock online

These are available in Wrexham Asda living store and both Argos a Wrexham stores too :0)

Ooh my children are desperate for these. They aren't supposed to be selling till the 4th May?! I will have to check my local store and maybe pop down

May 1st is the official release date according to the lego retail box/label I have on my box of 60

My boys have 10 of the 16 already....my local asda also has them. Hint - check the back of the packs at the bottom left...they have small imprints in the packets and each character has an imprint in a different place on the packet. So don't pick up 2 the same...good luck on your collections (_;)

NICNICREES I never knew that I will take a spin out now see if i can find any in my local Argos or Asda

There's always something slightly different with Minifigure blind bags. I remember once it was the bar codes but they change it all the time with each new series so people don't know

They are know as bump codes and you can work out what you have in the packet if necessary...

I also got a bag from Asda yesterday, really nice quality figures.

can't wait to get these toy barnhaus also have them in at £2.50 though

They had them in the lego store in meadowhall for 2.50 and they had blind bags or you could actually choose the one you wanted as they had opened loads of them so great deal for 2.29 but if you need a few to complete the set get to your nearest lego store they do both the movie and also the simpsons ones

I've never seen a lego store using bump codes. They always just feel through the packet hunting for identifying items. I spent 30 minutes once while they searched for 1 particular figure late in a release cycle.

Supposedly the Simpsons set are very hard to do that way as a lot of them are virtually identical (Millhouse and Ralph for example)

Went to both my local Argos and Asda and they both had none on the shelf. I asked in Argos and she looked at me dull! lol

I nearly tried Smyths but decided to just come home. I will keep my eye out tomorrow though.

Im not sure if its a Northern Ireland only store but Stewart Miller are selling them. Might be Toymaster in the rest of the UK

If you bought any lego from TRU in the past few weeks, check if you got a £10 voucher.If you do you can buy 4 of these and add something to get over a tenner, and you just need to pay postage of £4.95. So if you add something for a quid, you get four of them for £6.

Not online yet.

This is what i want...

You people need help! oO

My girls were going to buy this from the Lego store in Disneyland in March, it was priced at 220 euros, but they decided to waste their euros on tat, now they hugely regret it (so do i secretly too lol)

Its a fab set isn't it!

At smyths also but at £2.50

thanks for that - never heard of bump codes before!

Spotted in both asda and tesco this morning, £2.50, so this is a good deal.

they do look amazing, however pricey when you consider you have 16 to collect

I'm going to try one of our big Tesco this morning. See if i can work out these bump codes at all

No stock in any Argos in south wales - Spoke to TRU - they sold all 160 of their stock yesterday - both stores expecting stock on the 1st.
Also TRU said they would price match Argos.

I would personally go feel method over bump method. -
If anyones feeling these figures - try this guide examiner.com/lis…ide

tesco in stockport had a bundle of like 8 full boxes, dont think theyd been out long as they didnt even have a price on them

I've just returned from Argos in Blackpool - none on display, but the freindly employee found some for me - they had 43 left after i'd bought 10, not looking at bump codes or feeling i got the following

1 - Grandpa Simpson, 1 Apu, 1 Maggie, 3 Marge, 2 Nelson, 2 Homer - they are great little things - although i am obviously annoyed i got repeats. Lets set up a swap thread!

Do Argos have them out on display so I can grope and fondle them to be sure I'm not getting a duplicate, or do they come from the warehouse out the back and it's a lucky dip?

Managed to find these on sale last weekend at a local store. Got Maggie, Bart, Ned and Scratchy from the 4 I bought. Thought the bump codes were very obscure on them, couldn't really see them myself, but they were the first minifigures I'd bought so it could just be me not used to spotting them.
