It’s The Simpsons’ 25th anniversary this year, and clearly Lego has decided that it’s time to celebrate in a very big way. The 2500+ piece Lego Simpsons House is a real thing, and it goes on sale next month.
The kicker? It’s going to sell for just $200.
That’s a bargain for a Lego set this big — and an even bigger bargain when you consider that this is an incredibly detailed and officially licensed set.
The included minifigs are brilliantly done, with accurate molded heads and screened body pieces. From Homer’s employee ID card to Ned’s barbecue apron, nothing has been missed. And just to make sure that proportions are reasonable, Maggie’s body and legs are molded as a single piece — making her ever so slightly smaller than Bart and Lisa with their mini-legs.
The house itself is hinged so that you can open it up and stage scenes inside, and the roof panels are removable for easy access from above. You’ll be glad, too, because even the furnishings in the Simpsons’ house are amazing.
Their TV, for example, gets finished off by a screened plate that shows Itchy & Scratchy. Marge’s kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, Lisa has her own make-up table, and Homer’s wheelbarrow is clearly marked Property of Ned Flanders.
