LEGO The Simpsons – Welcome to Springfield!

One of my favorite LEGO builders is Alex Jones (a.k.a. Orion Pax), well-known for his amazing LEGO creations and taking LEGO into the realm of true art. Alex also does commissioned work, and one of his most recent projects was a collection of 10 buildings from Springfield, hometown of The Simpsons. The diorama will be on display in a BRICK Works store in Taipei, Taiwan, beginning in July of this year, in case you happen to be that way. 🙂

I know that the LEGO Simpsons line is quite controversial. There are a lot of people who really dislike The Simpsons, and the fact that LEGO released #71005 The Simpsons House set as well as a series of minifigures. For others The Simpsons in LEGO form is a dream come true. Whichever camp you belong to, it can’t be denied that Springfield with it’s simply drawn buildings and bright colors just beg to be built out of LEGO. So that’s what Alex did. He shares on his flickr page that even though he is not a big Simpsons fan he really enjoyed working on this project. As you look through the pictures note all the details Alex was able to incorporate from the original buildings. You can also visit Alex’s flickr gallery and website for more of his LEGO creations.

So what do you think? How do you like these LEGO Springfield buildings? Do you wish that LEGO released more sets in The Simpsons line than just the #71005 LEGO The Simpsons House and the collectible minifigures? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! And you can take a look at the currently available LEGO The Simpsons products at the Online LEGO Shop.

    Free cookie if anyone knows where the name Orion Pax came from.

    • admin June 26, 2014, 12:12 PM

      From Transformers. Another name of Optimus Prime. Do I get the cookie? 😛

      • Rmstunticon June 27, 2014, 10:49 AM

        Yes, yes you do. 🙂

    Those look cool. I’m not personally in to the Simpson’s line but I don’t have a vendetta against it either. I really enjoyed the Simpson’s Lego episode and probably would have liked the minifigures better had they looked like they did in the episode instead of being molded.

    When I was reading this, I thought these were gonna be upcoming sets… why doesn’t he upload them to LEGO Ideas?

    • admin June 26, 2014, 1:34 PM

      Not everyone wants to have their ideas made into actual LEGO sets. Also, with large detailed models it just doesn’t make sense as LEGO won’t be able to produce them in an affordable way. What some LEGO fans do is produce instructions for the sets they build and sell them or give them away free, so if somebody wants to copy their model they can.

      • Inventrious June 26, 2014, 6:40 PM

        I think I’m going to contact him and see if he sells/gives away LDD files for these…

    To be honest, I don’t like Lego Simpsons, but, as I don’t watch or even care about the show, I have nothing against it. Some people will like it, others won’t. Many LEGO themes are like that.
    I think the buildings are fantastically done, but some of them don’t match the picture very well (particularly the power plant). Although the church is great. 🙂

        I saw that earlier and was doing to mention it but I didn’t. I think it looks great, a little disappointed they didn’t keep the same minifigure designs as I wish there were more female torso designs but I still think it looks great and I’m excited to get it.

        • admin June 26, 2014, 1:53 PM

          I had the exact same thoughts; great little set, but I don’t like the minifigs – except for the newly printed one. I liked Alatariel’s original design for the minifigs. Anyway, it will be easy enough to change them up. 🙂

          • admin June 26, 2014, 1:54 PM

            Oh, and the dino is great! 😀

            • admin June 26, 2014, 1:54 PM

              And the chalk-board! 😀

              • BLProductions June 26, 2014, 3:28 PM

                Is the chalkboard the thing with the constellation sticker/print on it? (I think it’ll be a print)

                • admin June 26, 2014, 4:37 PM

                  My understanding is that the chalkboard is printed. 😉

        • BLProductions June 26, 2014, 3:26 PM

          Yeah, I wish they would make more female prints (and so do a lot of people, apparently) too. I can’t remember what the original project looked like, though. 😕
          I also note a piece in two new colors: 1×1 round plate w/ hole in Light Grey and Brown. I’d really like to get that dinosaur, but my list grows too long. 🙁

          • Kim June 26, 2014, 8:41 PM

            I’m particulary sick of that blue print and that gray print for womens prints. They picked my least favorite ones XD

            • admin June 27, 2014, 10:36 AM

              Agree on that… 🙁

            • BLProductions June 27, 2014, 10:54 AM

              Yeah, I don’t like the blue torso either. In fact, I don’t like that entire minifig. I’m okay w/ the astronomer person, actually. The lab worker I neither like nor dislike. 🙂

                I believe the heads are old, though. (Maybe the glasses head is new.) I believe I have already picked up one or two of them on Pick-a-Brick in Copenhagen…

  • Jake June 26, 2014, 1:58 PM

    Amazingly accurate

    • Jake June 26, 2014, 1:59 PM

      (Especially the blocko store

  • I want these… make them lego 😛

  • Majestic Kai Fan June 26, 2014, 4:33 PM

    I wish these were sets 😉 I would so get them all

  • Håkan June 26, 2014, 7:25 PM

    I wondered about the build on the far right on ALex’s illustration, but it appears to be the lime tank from the power plant, Officer Quimby’s police car and Radioactive Man (or what was his name now?) and sidekick investigating some nuclear waste dumping, something like that…

    • Håkan June 26, 2014, 7:28 PM

      Ah, Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy …

  • Bieke January 16, 2015, 5:50 AM
