While it's still not confirmed (or denied) that we'll be entitled to future sets based on the The Simpsons franchise and the possibility of an upcoming series of collectible minifigs on this theme seems pretty slim, we need to for the moment to be satisfied with the variation in the sauce LEGO Dimensions of this universe.
Three packs are on the program: The Level Pack 71202 above, already marketed to accompany the launch of the game and two Fun Packs (71211 with Bart Simpson et 71230 with Krusty the Clown) expected for next November.
The only interesting information at the moment: The part shown on the television Level Pack 71202 which displays the launch logo of the Itchy & Scratchy Show and which is exclusive until further notice. It's meager, but complete collectors are warned ...
As indicated by Matt in the comments, LEGO is currently making a small gesture to anyone ordering the set 71016 Kwik-E-Mart at the LEGO Shop : Three The Simpsons Collectible Minifig Series 2 Packets (Item # 71009) are free and automatically added to cart.
Note that it is not possible to choose the characters offered, LEGO sells these bags "blind".
The savings achieved are not gargantuan but the gesture is sympathetic.
View of the latest Toys R Us catalog, an offer that allows you to acquire the bags of the series 2 of minifigs The Simpsons at a price of 2.50 € per unit and this until June 7th.
As usual, if you order online, you won't be able to choose which character you want to get.
It's always cheaper than on the LEGO Shop where these sachets are sold at the public price of 2.99 € each.
The Simpson Family is coming to the LEGO Dimensions video game with three expansion packs that will be available later this year.
The universe of the animated series will be playable with a Level Pack (29.99 €) which will unlock a new level in the game and two Fun Packs (14.99 €).
On the minifig side, nothing new with Homer Simpson, Bart Simpson and Krusty the Clown, all three already available in the first series of collectible minifigs (71005) and, for Homer and Bart, in the set 71016 The Kwik-E-Mart.
The Simpsons Collectible Minifig Series 2 Pouches Now On Sale on the LEGO Shop.
The public price of the bag is set at 2.99 €, and I remind you that the bags of the first series of 16 minifigs on this theme were sold at the public price of 2.49 € ...
As indicated in the comments, we can already find the bags of the series 2 at 3.99 € in some major brands ...
That being said, and taking into account the fact that LEGO ships the bags in a totally random way, so with no possible choice for the customer as to their content, I will turn to a box of 60 bags which will allow me to obtain three series complete with 16 minifigs.
There are already boxes of 60 sachets at amazon (see on Pricevortex), but I'm going to wait for a promotion to try not to pay more for a box than the unit price multiplied by 60 ...

I don't work for LEGO®, I am not corrupted by LEGO®, I buy my LEGO® myself and what I am given, I offer it to the readers of the site.For the rest, the owners of the respective brands mentioned on the site remain the owners and it is very well like that, blablabla ....
The fact that LEGO thrills by sending sets for reviews and other tests obviously does not influence my opinion on these products.
