    Gotta love that Maggie is holding a drill.

    I think that it's supposed to be a nail gun.
    Season 12, episode 16. Bye Bye Nerdie

    so Fox may have given some concessions or not charged a licensing fee, etc.

    Hah! Yeah, I can't see Fox not going for money if there is an opportunity.

    ...but is there a bigger opportunity for Fox to make money by Lego providing HUGE exposure to The Simpsons, which is a show that's still producing new episodes?

    That's the only thing that makes me hope/wonder...

    I love it! I want one!. Might have to forego the Parisian Café for this set ....

    FINALLY! Someone at TLG gets it...

    A licence like this is mostly going to attract adults, not kids. Those of us who remember watching The Simpsons in the early years... guess what... we're all grown up!

    I would have had no interest in some dinky little 600 part house, waste of time. THIS on the other hand, I will buy and proudly display.

    This is what adult fans want, something that does justice to 25 years of one of the most amazing shows in TV history.

    From Wikipedia:

    Since its debut on December 17, 1989, the show has broadcast 538 episodes and the 25th season began on September 30, 2013. The Simpsons is the longest-running American sitcom, the longest-running American animated program, and in 2009 it surpassed Gunsmoke as the longest-running American primetime, scripted television series. The Simpsons Movie, a feature-length film, was released in theaters worldwide on July 26 and July 27, 2007, and grossed over $527 million.

    A 2,500+ part version of the house only does justice to the source material, which deserves this treatment more than most other licensed material, perhaps Star Wars being the sole exception.

    @epyon396 Maggie is holding a cordless drill because that is her favorite toy.

    Everyone's eyes make me angry. Why do they all look so stupid? If they all just had normal eyes they'd be fine. I'm guessing the CMFs will have normal eyes?
  • legomasonlegomason Member Posts: 190
    Also it looks a lot like the classic Little People house of the '70s.

    When does this come out?
  • epyon396epyon396 Member Posts: 268
    You're right!
    What episode was that? I can't remember.
  • leego76leego76 Member Posts: 360
    It's not the best resolution on my phone but that looks like a radioactive man comic in Bart's hand, a Krusty poster on his door and possibly Itchy & Scratchy on the TV. (Hopefully all printed) Sure there will be other nice details upon closer inspection.

    The size of the house is great, but the size of the house is going to be a problem when it comes to other buildings if LEGO decides to go with a full Simpsons line. It will be hard to get the size of other buildings comparable to this house and stay within the typical $79.99/$99.99 price points. Just imagine a $99.99 Flanders house sitting next to this one. The scale won't be right.

    sold! This beats my expectations and then some. Here's me thinking you would give a us a 600-900 piece £60-£80 set. Top marks LEGO you may take my money
  • vitreolumvitreolum Member Posts: 1,406
    Nope, still no Simpsons for me.
  • BumblepantsBumblepants Member Posts: 7,631
    Very impressive. I can see the AFoL population making quite an uptick when Simpsons fans get hooked with this set. Glad to see Lego is going bricks-out with sets like this and the Sea Cow. Even if they are sets I do not want personally, it is nice to see them continue to raise the bar.
  • jockosjunglejockosjungle Member Posts: 701
    Will it be available in normal shops you reckon? Or is it going to be exclusive, would be happier with a third off or something.

    But looks great, it is the simpsons house, done at a decent scale. I'll be getting it at some point
  • jadedancjadedanc Member Posts: 1,302
    Love the house and car but that's it. When I get it, guess I can give the mini figs away :)
  • LegofanscottLegofanscott Member Posts: 622
    Having looked at the original house i must admit, its not as good as i thought it was.

    I know there is only so much you can do with the limits of the lego brick compared to a cartoon drawing but still...

    For a start the roof seems way too short compared to the real one, and overall the house is too tall and narrow, it should be short and wider.

    and a few other things that are noticeably wrong.

    Hate being a moaner but the more i look at the real house the worse the Lego model looks :(

  • Wil348Wil348 Member Posts: 240
    I really hope it's less than £200, this is a must buy for me.
  • Gavin83Gavin83 Member Posts: 251

    anyone else here think this set wouldve been better with lift off sections?

    Yes, this would have been better as a traditional modular. Just to mock us they've given a picture in the top right of the box to show us just what it would have looked like in this design!

    Saying that though I do love this set, it's much better than I expected. I was gonna pass on this theme but having seen this I have to get it.

    As for the colour, I believe it changed. It was originally pink but it's definately more of a tan colour these days. Maybe they had it painted.

    is this to replace the haunted house?
  • CCCCCC Member Posts: 20,526
    I guess it is a problem with minifig dimensions and spacing when they sit next to each other, but they are meant to all fit on the sofa.

    I don't think anything can really "replace" the HH, unless they do another halloween/monster theme

    HH is a completely different theme with a different audience, so i dont think so.

    There are a few issues with the layout of the house but I am happy with how it all looks. Certainly the main features have been captured, although the ground floor seems to be the wrong way around.
  • odueckodueck Member Posts: 48
    I'm a bit surprised about some of the responses to this set – both the criticisms of the particulars of the set and the theme itself. Much like the Star Wars sets, this will be appealing to adult non-LEGO customers. The Simpsons is an iconic show that, while well past its prime, is still highly regarded among millions of fans.

    I'm looking forward to displaying 742 Evergreen Terrace in my home theatre room.

    Perhaps in addition to the hinged center, but certainly not as an alternative to it. I think dollhouse-style sets are often best when you can get a "minifig's eye view" — either with a hinge like in this set and the Haunted House, or with a plain open back like the LEGO City and Friends buildings tend to have. This is especially true with a set like this which is based on a cartoon — a "bird's eye view" of the interior scenes would not offer the same sense of familiarity as seeing things from the same level as the characters.

    Looking at this box, the "Floorplan" view in the upper right does make it look like the floors and roof separate! But they might just be separated for the purpose of photography — I don't see any obvious tile layers on the house's outer wall in the front-of-box pic.

    The interior seems to have lots of fantastic detail. The roof had better lift up or something to allow better bathroom access, though. It looks like there's some detail there that would be impossible to appreciate if all you get is a 1x4x6 doorway for access. I have a feeling that the roof will lift up, though, because if the bathroom is difficult to access Bart's bedroom is downright impossible, placed as it is behind Lisa's room with the only door opening to the hallway.

    Lots of lovely cartoon colors in the interior, as well as dollhouse-style details like the couch and TV that are familiar to me even as someone who has never watched an episode of the Simpsons in full. The piano is another nice detail.

    In terms of minifigure accessories, Marge's vacuum cleaner is a very clever design!

    Love it, love it, love it. My wife is a huge Simpsons fan, and flipped when we saw the picture last night. I was thinking it may be a $200-250 set, but after seeing the interior, I'll be shocked if it's less than $300. So many new molds, so many new pieces, plus it's licensed. Still getting it though.

    Must buy. I really hate the idea of a Simpsons theme, but this set is really all you need. Well done, Lego.

    P.S. I still think the minifigs look horrible. Then again, I'm biased against any minifig that uses custom molded head pieces.
  • beabea Member Posts: 227
    Sigh. I was really hoping Lego didn't make Simpsons sets. I'm a fan of the show but I don't want to see it as Lego.

    I do like the size of the set. It will be in the "to buy" line behind the restaurant, cinema, tower, opera house, etc.
  • hoyatableshoyatables Member Posts: 873
    If you look at the upper right corner of the image of the front of the box, it shows that it is both hinged and modular. The right image shows that the roof lifts off and at least PART of the second story lifts off as well - looks like the part over the family room (makes sense, to provide extra access to the couch and inspire all sorts of LEGO couch gag parodies).

    I feel pretty confident this will be $250.
  • jondesouzaCEjondesouzaCE Member Posts: 241
    Just been told in the Cardiff store that it'll be £180 in the UK.
  • CrowkillersCrowkillers Member Posts: 757
    Very much looking forward to this...
  • RomanticWarriorRomanticWarrior Member Posts: 248
    I'm glad that The Simpsons fans are enjoying this and looking forward to it so much.

    This isn't for me, though. It doesn't feel much like LEGO. Particularly on the interior, where the designer(s) went overboard with concealing studs. It even looks like they put tiles all over the floors. Looking at the interior, there is little that makes me instantly get that LEGO look and feeling. More like a Mattel/Hasbro dollhouse. The characters make that feeling even worse.

    Maybe I'm just a fuddydud, but this just doesn't do it for me even though I'm in their target AFOL demographic. I'd have much more fun with a smaller, more LEGO-like playset.
  • Wil348Wil348 Member Posts: 240
    Someone on Eurobricks just reported that the Cardiff store has said that it will be £180. That very generous, considering it's a licensed set and includes over 2500 parts. I think the minifigures look good, not perfect, but they do the job well. I'll have to pick this up at some point this year.

    @jondesouzaCE - Any word on release date? The price seems very good!
  • jondesouzaCEjondesouzaCE Member Posts: 241

    ^ He said it here 4 comments up too :-)

    And I posted it here first! :-)

    I didn't even think to ask about release date I'm afraid. I can pop back later in the week though...

  • In South Africa it is currently tagged for a May release - although we do tend to get sets at pretty random times :)

    Wow awesome! That roof is great

    Sorry about that, I checked the page before I posted, must have not seen your post though! Thanks for finding out the price, and thanks for offering to find out the release date. :)

    ^Don't feel bad, I just posted the back of the box photo in the other Simpson's thread....DOH!
  • starfire2starfire2 Member Posts: 1,335
    Does anyone know when this will be released in the US?
  • AdeelZubairAdeelZubair Member Posts: 2,704
    My First Thoughts:
    -Homer and Flanders are decent. Lego what happened to Marge, Bart, Lisa and you think Maggie is taller than half of the front door?
    -The car looks odd, it don't look right but the house is what you are really paying for: The exterior is perfect I was expecting something like Tower of Orthanc or Arkham Asylum were the backs are open. It actually looks like a dolls house were is has a hinge opening and the interior is good from what I can see but does look odd from some spaces.
    -As for the price: I would like it to be £140-170 but maybe we just haven't seen enough yet. Sadly it looks like its going to be £200+

    Can't wait to see more Lego Simpsons sets and the designer video for this set. I will have some doughnuts while I wait!!
  • tamamahmtamamahm Member Posts: 1,987
    Huh. I am not a big Simpson's fan, but they have done an amazing job on this set. I'm impressed.
  • magrimagri Member Posts: 154
    LEGO just posted more pictures on Facebook.
  • magrimagri Member Posts: 154

    The set will retail US $199.99 - CA $229.99 - DE 199.99€ - UK £179.99 - DK 1,699.00 DKK
  • hoyatableshoyatables Member Posts: 873
    $200? That seems pretty generous! Good deal.
