LEGO The Simpsons House pictures!

The big news that came out a few days ago is images of the first LEGO The Simpsons sets; the #71006 LEGO The Simpsons House, thanks to Eurobricks member Carlos S. So let’s talk about this a bit! :)

LEGO The Simpsons

On the first image you can see the house from the front, along with the garage with Homer’s car, a BBQ, a skateboard-ramp, a wheelbarrow and a mailbox. I have to say that this is one of the most realistic looking LEGO houses ever; simple clean details with nice colors. Even if you are not a Simpsons fan you might want to consider this house for your LEGO City. The house is also an accurate replica of The Simpsons’ house in the TV series.

#71006 LEGO The Simpson's House

There are six minifigures included with the LEGO The Simpsons House: Homer, Lisa, Bart, Maggie, Marge and Ned Flanders. As we have discussed previously they come with specially molder heads to resemble the characters as closely as possible. Some LEGO fans are not happy with the moulded heads, however this is not the first time LEGO went this direction; the LEGO Toy Story minifigures also have unique head pieces, and even unique long legs! Speaking of legs, notice the printing on Bart – he got the first printed short legs in LEGO’s history! Also, Maggie either has even shorter legs, or a shortened torso – it is hard to make out from the picture, but it is definitely something unique. :P

#71006 LEGO The Simpson's House Details

On the back of the box you can see how incredibly detailed the interior is. It contains all the main rooms in the Simpsons’ family house; all the bedrooms, the living room, kitchen and the garage. As far as I can see it is only missing the attic and the basement (it does seem to have at least a crawl-space under the house). This kind of detailing on a LEGO house has been quite rare, although it is becoming more common due to demand by LEGO fans; the LEGO Modular Houses have been getting more and more detailed interiors, and the LEGO Friends buildings are all very detailed inside.

So what do you think? How do you like the #71006 LEGO The Simpsons House set? And what about the minifigures? Is this a set you are considering getting once it becomes available? Or are you going to pass? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! ;)

I know you were trying to get on top of this story, but LEGO just put out their official announcement about it today (like an hour ago) with hi-res photos and pricing. $200 US. That’s a steal for the 2500+ piece count!

I actually had this post scheduled for this upcoming Saturday, but since I just got the official press-release a few hours ago I decided to pre-date it to yesterday have it published (instead of scraping it), and just post the press-release on Saturday. ;)

Worst idea ever. LEGOs mostly a kid toy not a teen

Yeah, some people say they don’t like it. But LEGO is not just for kids. There are plenty of sets for older LEGO fans – after all many of us stay with the hobby in our entire lives. As far as I’m concerned this is the best LEGO doll-house ever! As a girl I can’t wait! Forget about the minifigs, I want the house! :mrgreen:

Right, that’s why they’ve been making Lego sets out of violent PG-13 movies like The Dark Knight Rises, Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean for years.

I seriously don’t get why people have this problem. Why is it that it’s okay for Lego to make sets based on films that feature hangings, shootings, murder, blood, and torture, but it’s not okay for them to make a set based on a TV show that has occasional off-color humor?

It is a great looking set. I already looking at how I can rearrange my shelves to display it. It looks so real for an animated house.

Yeah, the house is really sweet! A perfect play and display piece! :D
