The Simpsons LEGO Set
It looks like LEGO has finally decided to team up with America’s favorite family for an officially licensed The Simpsons LEGO set. All we have to say is, it’s about time.
After two plus decades of success (25 seasons), it’s astonishing that we haven’t already seen a LEGO set detailing the life of the Simpsons. A random screenshot was leaked earlier today confirming that this set is in fact on the way, but details are rather sparse at the moment. According to the box we can expect a 2,523 piece set that includes minifigures of the entire family (unfortunately no Santa’s Little Helper and Snowball) along with the lovable Ned Flanders. The set seems to include the Simpsons’ house, their classic pink car, a quarter pipe for Bart to skate, a grill for Flanders, and a whole lot more. Nothing has been confirmed at this time, but we’re hoping LEGO confirms the news sooner than later. If this isn’t real, LEGO needs to make this happen ASAP.
*UPDATE – Well that didn’t take long. Just a few days after the leaked image made its way around the web, LEGO let the cat out of the bag. Yes, there is an official Simpsons LEGO set hitting the retail scene during the month of February (retail $199). There will also be 16 minifigures (retail $3.99 each) released as part of the collection. The brand unveiled the official photos to go along with announcement, and a video as well.
