The Simpsons Lego available February 2014!

Lego fan? Simpsons fan? Welcome to Lego / Simpsons heaven…

Today, the Lego Group have officially announced the release date of the long rumoured Simpsons Lego set which we will be able to get our hands on in February – less than a month away!

The Simpsons Lego set recreates the iconic family house in great detail including furniture, household accessories and of course not forgetting their famous pink saloon car which can be parked up in the garage – complete with opening door. The house opens up in the traditional dolls house style and each figure can interact with the scenery accordingly.

Included in the box is a set of The Simpsons family as minifigures (Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie) and additionally Ned Flanders makes an appearance too. In May 2014, a separate line of 16 minifigures will also be released.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Fox during the 25th anniversary year of the Simpsons,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president licensing & entertainment at The Lego Group. “We know our fans will love the challenge of building the Simpsons’ family home in great detail and the ability to collect quintessential characters in LEGO minifigure form will let them showcase their love of the show in a whole new way. We are also excited that The Simpsons will be created in Lego form, truly bringing this partnership to life.”

“We are kicking off the 25th anniversary of The Simpsons in a big way, and we think Lego-loving fans of the show will be impressed with this collaboration that represents the best of both iconic worlds through the Lego and The Simpsons construction set, minifigures and LEGO-themed episode,” said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “Our partnership with LEGO is the perfect addition to the range of product lines that will be introduced globally in celebration of this great milestone achievement in television history.”
