World of Springfield Simpsons action figures are a line of figures based on the celebrated, long-running U.S animated comedy series ‘The Simpsons’.

Background and development

The World of Springfield line was produced from 1999 until 2004, and consisted of a variety of figures and interactive playsets.

The original concept behind the idea was to build the town of Springfield through numerous sets based on locations such as Moe’s Tavern, Springfield Elementary, The Android’s Dungeon comic book store and the Nuclear Plant. Each of these sets features various sensors, which react when different figures are placed on them by speaking recorded phrases from the show.

Different locations are compatible with different characters, with sets averaging between 15 and 30 individual phrases.

The line was discontinued in 2004 due to falling sales, although the series itself has remained popular.

Figures and playsets

The figures and sets were released in 16 different waves, along with some sold exclusively through certain U.S retailers and others available as mail-away special offers. Several of the main characters were produced in numerous variations, based on specific episodes of the series, and playsets were produced to tie in with other episodes such as the Treehouse of Horror Halloween shows.

In all, there are 203 figures and 40 playsets in the line.
