A few days ago LEGO revealed the upcoming LEGO The Simpsons Minifigure Series at their Facebook page. So let’s talk about them! 🙂
As previous LEGO minifigure collections there are 16 LEGO The Simpsons minifigs within the series, and they will be packaged in blind baggies as usual. Please note however that this series is not referred to as LEGO Minifigures Series 13, but as LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures. Just like The LEGO Movie Minifigure Series is not called Series 12 officially – although LEGO fans often refer to it that way. As far as I know the series after this will be tied with the LEGO Minifigures Online MMO game – whether that will be referred to as the “real” Series 12 is not known at this point.
Going back to the LEGO The Simpsons Minifigure Series, here are the 16 characters included: Chief Wiggum, Scratchy, Ralph Wiggum, Nelson Muntz, Marge Simpson, Milhouse, Maggie Simpson, Lisa Simpson, Krusty the Clown, Itchy, Homer Simpson, Grampa, Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns, Bart Simpson and Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.
The LEGO The Simpsons Minifigure Series is scheduled for release in May. In the meantime, if you like The Simpsons, you may want to check out the #71006 LEGO The Simpsons House available at the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? How do you like the LEGO The Simpsons Minifigure Series? Are you planning to collect them? Or add them to the LEGO The Simpsons House set? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below. 😉

I’m personally going to be skipping this series…
Same… I still think this was a bad decision for LEGO®…..
Also, it has been confirmed that the MMO series will be series 12, so that can be updated. Not going to bother searching through Brickimedia for a link.
Not collecting. I utterly hate the show for what it represents, and feel this was the worst decision for LEGO®.
Okay, cool, good to know. Looking forward to that series!
I whish they would make a series with…
lion suit guy
these would be cool don’t you think?
Seth, there is already a scarecrow in a previous series, and wizards, runners and ghosts are quite common in regular LEGO sets. I love your idea for the ballerina and the lion suit guy though! 😛
Same… lol repetitive comment
same here NinjagoNerd. but I hope they start doing the arm and shorter leg printing like that on better themes.
That’s actually not printing on the legs and the arms. The color is moulded in the plastic! It is really sweet, and I also hope LEGO will use this technique for other themes as well. 🙂
Agreed. I’m tired of mini legs only being one solid color.
It will be used across all themes by 2015! (Again I’m not going to find the link, sorry)
Totally. Not. Worth. Getting. But I do hope they have the molding like you said in other themes. 🙁
WHA?!?!?!?!?!?! COOL! but I’m not getting any of these minifigures. but I do hope they do that maybe for some LEGO city sets and more!
Never. Looking. At. These. Again. isn’t Homer a “drunkard?”
I wouldn’t doubt it Lloyd. and if he was, doesn’t LEGO not like anything involving you know what. (I’m not sure if I can say the word on this website.) alcohol, am I aloud to type that here?
My friend said Homer was a “My friend (who watches the Simpsons) said he was.
Gah! Didn’t mean that! I mean’t My friend (who watches the Simpsons) said he was.
this is a very bad one. im not getting it.
why did they make the simsons?
Oh, shut up
I’m go8ing to get Bart and Homer for the short sleeves!
I can not wait for these to be released!! Time to start saving up for all of them!! My most favorite is Mr Burns and Krusty!! 😀
I’m not going to rant about the bad decision LEGO made doing a Simpsons theme but I will not be getting this series. Mostly I get the CMFs because I customize and honestly, there are some decent-looking parts here but none that I *have* to have. I need to find the other Series 11 and Movie figures that I want before these hit the shelves.
I’ll be collecting these. The Simpsons have been around for 25 years. There will be a lot of Simpsons fans collecting these.
when is LEGO going to make up there own for the minifigure series? I mean, yeah, the LEGO movie thing was awesome but I liked it most when LEGO made there own.
I also prefer the non-branded minifigs, but there are collectors out there who have been waiting for these for years, even decades. So let them have their fun too. 😛
I’m not saying there not fun and cool, I’m just saying what I prefer. 😉
more or less same. even if it’s just collectable minifigs from a non-branded lego theme like chima or castle or ninjago or something, i would rather that they use their own ideas for the minifigures instead of someone else’s.
These are great! I like that the individual figures have full open eyes, as most of the ones that came with the house are half-closed, like they’re all plotting against each other, lol. Now the absolute icing on the doughnut would be if they made a LEGO Simpsons video game!
Well, you can dream….
The Simpsons isn’t a full theme, so I’d seriously doubt there would be a Video Game.
Video Games are bad for your brain too.
I think this is the worst idea ever they could have made a ninjago minifig series and it could have had Zane’s father, Cole’s father, Jay’s parents, Lloyd’s mother, Sensei Wu’s father, Cyrus Borg (normal), pink Zane,Pizza delivery Jay, pink apron Zane, etc.
I wish so too……..
Wow. That is exactly what I was thinking. I made it almost to 16 for a Ninjago series. Including but not limited to 😉 :
Zane’s dad, Ed, Edna, Mesako, pink Zane 🙂 , The 1st spinjitzu Master, Dareth, Cole’s dad, Kai in blacksmith suit, Kai in suit & tie (from ep27), Young Wu, Young Garmadon, Nya (in ep27 outfit), Captain Soto, No-eyed Pete, and Brad/Jean. That’s 16 😉
Ooh I like all of the other characters you thought of
Yeah they should totally bring the Ninjago Collectable minifigures, I’d buy all of them 😉
I so want a Zane in a pink suit! Also all of the ninja in their pjs. 😛
PJs PJs PJs! Please LEGO official, if you’re reading this, consider the Ninja in their PJs!
THAT WOULD BE SO COOL! 😀 you should request that to LEGO somehow.
Definitely avoiding these! What a wonky marketing maneuver for LEGO!
Well, I might get ONE, just to add to my collection. A Wiggum, maybe?
I can’t say I hate the Simpsons, as I barely know what they are (please don’t explain though). The only one I would get is Mr. Burns, I want that 3m stick he’s holding, as well as the minifig head. Too bad there’s a fish on it… 😕
I just wish the TLM series wasn’t sold out, I want ABE LINCOLN!!!! 😡
Is it sold out on LEGO.com? You can check there..
Yes it is, at least in the US. There’s not even a CM section anymore!
My TRU has tons of them. I mean boxes and boxes. Maybe check TRU in your area?
Hmm…They seem to be in stock at TRU.com. But the nearest store to me is almost half an hour (almost 12 miles) away. My parents would never drive there for Lego, and they wouldn’t buy them online either. Plus they’re $4. 🙁
That’s a nice bike-ride. 😉
What’s TRU anyway? Toy’s R Us?
yes, and they crazily inflate prices (Hence $4 for a ‘fig in the US)
Agreed. Back when Hero Factory came out I was looking for Von Nebula. I looked at TRU. price: $30
Target: $20. Seriously, how they stay in business is beyond me…
They prey on unsuspecting parents and grandparents who don’t know any better…
That is actually really true, people like my parents just can’t know,
I mean it’s all expensive to them so how are you to tell unless you know the price. I want that green suit on the sneaky old guy but other then that I don’t care for these.
I remember reading that those prices are here to stay for future series as well… unfortunately…
Bummer. I can’t see why they’d do it, minifigs are already quite pricey in terms of piece count (~4-6pcs.). But $3 is a good price, CM is popular. 😕
try http://www.theminifigurestore.com. They are more expensive because you know which one you’re getting but at least you get the exact one you want.
There are also many sellers on BL that sell the individual minifigs. TheMinifigureStore is fine for British LEGO fans, but for USA buyers it is too expensive. I buy my minifigs either locally after feeling for them, or at BrickLink.
really? I’m going to have to check out that website. and then, I can get, whatever I want! 😈
Have you tried walgreen’s? They carry minifigs.
I don’t have an issue with the Simpsons nor video games, in fact I’d love a Simpsons Lego themed video game. However, I am not a fan of having so much licensed stuff as opposed to the older general themes. I see using these for parts because I do like their accessories.
P.S. Not all video games are bad for your brain but negativity is.
Actually, I have yet to find ONE piece of scientific evidence tat video games, in general, will actually harm you. Some video games I do understand are just not meant to be played. But I normally just play Nintendo and PC games.
Same here. I play RPGs and Nintendo character games on top of the various Lego games. Nothing brain damaging there. Good for hand-eye coordination.
What are RPGs? I also play Nintendo (though mostly only Mario games), as well as LittleBigPlanet on the PS3 and a few Lego games. The only brain damaging games I see are all the xbox ones where you shoot and kill everything, also the ones w/ zombies (and I don’t mean b/c they eat brains 😐 ). 😕
RPGs are Role-Playing Games like Final Fantasy or Tales of Xillia or Bravely Default, Dragon Quest, Earthbound. They are generally very story and cinematic or text heavy. I ‘ve often compared them to an interactive fantasy novel or movie. Some do have futuristic themes though. Not be to be confused with Western/American RPGs like Mass Effect or Fable or Dragon Age. Though still RPGs, they are more action oriented and really aren’t as good as the Japanese ones.
I used to play fighting fantasy on my kindle because they were releasing the apps. I absolutely loved the whole idea and tolkienish fantasy theme but those things can get really dark and depressing. Good for imagination too though, and memory. (So you turn left and drink the goblet, and then sneak past the orc and then fight the blacksmith and answer yes to the wizard and turn right and use the potion not the key and, blah blah something like that.
Sorry I left out a parentheses. (I’m a grammar nazi to my conscience.)
Fighting Fantasy is a bit more like interactive fiction then a RPG, but it does have a lot of game elements too.
actuallty they apparently(I have no idea how) decrease hand-eye coordination and eyesight but those are the only harmful effects.
Bad move LEGO! I am not buying one pack!
You know I will probably buy them for a few reasons 1) I love the simps 2)if I buy two in a lot of years since few people are seeming to buy them they will be rare 3) I can sell one set keep the other awile from now because there is a BIG simpsons fan base BAAM! Monies!
Can you come out with a Felling guide for the LEGO Simpsons mystery bag
Grayson, William writes those, so I just asked him on your behalf. He said he was actually planning to write the guide last night, but when he went to the store there was only the empty box left from the day before. So he will have to go back when have another box available. So he is working on it. 😉
I might be getting the Simpson house soon.
Something for everyone, I would enjoy this set. But Springfield is such a big place, it needs more minifigs!
