Im quite a big simpsons fan and in my eyes its a horrible representation of the house.
Call me a party pooper but i have really grown to dislike the set
And for £180 there are far nicer sets out there
Speaking of which, did anyone see the latest Tree house of horror episode? I thought it was terrible and a real letdown considering how much i love those episodes.
Dont think it so much the way its been designed but just the fact that Lego isnt the best medium for recreating it, it just looks amateurish
Guess ill stop commenting on this thread now though, i feel like ive made my point clear that i dont like it!
This all said, I still haven't sold the 10212s I picked up because you all collectively convinced me it was a "can't miss" proposition.
In all likelihood, the set gets opened in two weekends during a nap and gets built very slowly over the next three months. (Ewok Village took two . . . .)

Speaking of the Simpson's house, my wife ordered one and then another one under her same account for my brother's wife(because she wasn't a VIP member and couldn't get one without already making a purchase to be a VIP member) I didn't even realize that there was a limit of one until right now.. I thought it was 2.. I do see that it is one now though...
I was just on the S-A-H site and seen that it was one and wondered how my wife was able to place 2 orders for the same thing if it had a 1 limit restriction...
I was pleasantly surprised to see this set in the store and, after all of 90-seconds of peering over the box, gleefully passed over it. I'm all for TLG extending into new properties, but this one just seems like a miss to me.
My 5 year old daughter liked it, but then she likes anything that looks like a doll house, doesn't mean it is right for her.
I put it back.
Strangely enough, the box is big and heavily enough, it probably is priced right, while $40 more than PR, it "feels" heavier (I didn't weigh them both), and it sure is a bigger box.
But somehow, it feels expensive next to PR. Had it been $159 like PR, I'd probably have picked it up, but at $200? Meh, another house to put on the shelf.
Some day, when someone offers a discount or deal or gift card or free set to go with it, I may get it.
And if not, as impressed with it as I am, I can also pass. It just doesn't fit anything else.
Too expensive for a bland house.
Clicking on the order number *should* reveal the tracking number though, that'll tell you it's been shipped
Sad for them. Mine is already winging its way to me from Lego.com.
I'll take the PR any day of the week, just my personal opinion.
I started on Friday night and I think I'm about 5 and a half hours in so far. I only "came back" to Lego about 18 months ago, and from my limited experience (#10220 the VW Van, #10231 Shuttle, #10230 Mini Modulars and #10233 Horizon Express) I can say that it's not been the most challenging build for the most part, but it's been really fun. Plenty of interesting little techniques and fun bits along the way to keep me smiling.
I also like how it can "lock" in the closed position, something that the HH could have benefited.
For me, it's all about the source material...not always best bang for my buck. If I prefer Star Wars, I'll get Ewok Village instead of Orthanc...even if its $50 more. Simple as that.
There is $37 in Ebay and Paypal fees there not to mention about $20 to ship it...
