The Simpsons always manage to draft in the greatest star guests, including Tom Hanks, Hugh Heffner, James Brown and even Simon Cowell. Many of these celebrities are now being transformed into small yellow toys to help the Simpsons celebrate 25 of the greatest guest stars.

The show is currently in its 24th year, making it the longest running scripted television show in history.
“We are honoured to celebrate a show that continues to entertain generations of fans. When you look at the guest stars over the years, they read like a who’s who of music, movies and television. I, for one, have made room on my shelf for all the amazing action figures that will be part of this programme.” said Joel Weinshanker President and COO at NECA.
