Will not be a seller. I don’t like the idea. I mean kids are mostly going to buy this an this is not a good show for kids. So who’s going to watch the show now because they have the awesome house? Kids!

I like the house… the minifigs not so much, but that wouldn’t have stopped me from buying it.

It’s just that in Europe the price is around USD 271…. That is just too much for this set IMHO. I’ll wait and see if the price drops (at least a little) when it hits the non-official shops.

This looks to be LEGOs attempt to find a new adult audience. Since Simpsons has run for decades it has a sizable adult fan base.

Now I’ve talked with current hardcore fans and we are in agreement that the set is a big price point to swallow, but at the same time I’ve talked with non-LEGO fans who like the Simpsons and they are considering the set for themselves, not for any kids they know or have.

The sad thing for the US. we currently have a ban on discounts for any exclusives. This includes secondary retailers like Target, Wal-Mart, Amazon, etc. So if you see it on sale it’s a rare thing.

Although sellers like TRU and Target have been finding interesting ways around the discount ban. TRU was giving away free sets with large LEGO purchases and Target was giving away Target gift cards for certain large sets.

I think if it were up to just the existing LEGO fans, this set would fall flat. But the job of big companies like LEGO is to continue to find new markets. The question then becomes is the adult fan base is like what they found with Star Wars?

It is available to VIP’s in Denmark as well. I ordered it earlier today. I love LEGO and I like the Simpsons too. I don’t share the same concerns as many others. I don’t think LEGO ruins the Simpsons, i don’t think the Simpsons is inappropriate for kids. I think it’s part of the Danish culture. We have far “worse” childrens tv than the Simpsons, although the Simpsons has primarily an adult audice here as well. I’m pretty happy about the pricing too. The money currency and the LEGO currency are never comparable (1$ = 5,5-6 DKK where LEGO prices are 1$ = 9-11 DKK). So where 10 cent per piece is a fine price in the US (except Creator), 1 DKK per piece is a nice price in Denmark, and this is over 2500 pcs. for 1700 DKK (approx 0,68 DKK per pcs.) Unfortunately I won’t be home next week to recieve the package myself, but I’m really looking forward to building this iconic model eventually. “Leg Godt” everyone!

Ok, I don’t see everyone’s problem with The Simpsons being inappropriate! Mild themes is nothing these days and kids watch this all the time! It’s not like Family Guy or American Dad, which are MUCH more violent and have foul language. Futurama is worse for kids as well, and seeing as Simpsons is an iconic show these days, almost everyone would’ve seen an episode or two of it, and at the end of the day, it’s up to PARENTS to decide what their kids watch and what they get.
Sorry for my little rant.

I love space themes, and I’d love to see a Futurama set…

Simpsons is definitely made to go either way for kids or adults. It’s the size of the set that tells me they are going after adult fans more than children. Of course I know a kid or two who will be getting one.

The idea of what is appropriate kind of goes out the door when a license is involved. LEGO will do whatever the license asks them to do. However if it is an original LEGO line they get overly careful.

I think if Simpsons does well it’s not out of the realm of possibilities to see a Futurama spin off. After all, same creators.

Bender’s body would probably require a bunch of new molds, though. Possibly it could look something like a bulkier version of the skeleton minifig…
