Ok, This Official Lego The Simpsons Set is Pretty Amazing



All Lego really had to do with its The Simpsons license was make a set, so it’s frankly even more impressive that this set is so big, so detailed, and so versatile. Lego basically made an intricate The Simpsons dollhouse that you can build from scratch. And apparently the transaction works both ways, because The Simpsons will be airing a Lego episode in May, featuring Springfield in Lego form.

    So we can start seeing some dedicated fan doing lego re-creations of classic episodes in Lego stop-motion animation sometime in March, right?

    I know it’s a weird little nitpick, but I can’t get over the half lidded expressions on their faces. The big “bug eyed” look is a staple of their design. In these shots they all look completely disinterested. Except Lisa who looks to be terrified of some inevitable but ill defined doom.

    Yes! I was thinking the same thing! Why do they all look so bored? And Lisa so terribly, terribly sad?

    It gets worse if you see the Lego Design video that they released with these pictures: the prototype pictures all have wide-open eyes and smiling faces. I’m still going to buy it, of course, because I am a big fat old man child.

    Maybe this is a variant from the episode where homer smoked weed and the whole family inhaled a few too many clouds of smoke.

  • Robert Vary

    That’s such a weird design choice. I can’t imagine why they did it.

    There’s going to be a whole series of sets, as well as some little polybags containing just one Simpsons character each, so maybe they are just trying to have a variety of expressions for each character? These heads wouldn’t really work as the ‘one face on one side and a different face on the other’ type.

    By February 2nd, I would think.

    I can see that, wanting to have a variety of expressions. Still, it seems odd to have the first set released include the “existential ennui” collection.
