Lift off the top floor to reveal the fully-fitted kitchen with dining table, chairs, yellow and light-blue tiled floor and lots of pots, pans and other accessories. Then it’s into the living room with couch and TV playing Itchy and Scratchy, purple piano and more. Next to the house is the detachable garage, complete with workbench, tool rack, vacuum cleaner, broom, toolbox, tools and the family car, complete with dent (because only in a LEGO world are dents a plus!), opening trunk and ‘radioactive’ bar from the nuclear power plant. Step outside onto the terrace and you’ll find loads of cool items, including a grill, wheelbarrow and air conditioning unit with ‘Property of Ned Flanders’ decoration, sausages, 2 garden loungers, flowerpots, a shovel, 2 fruit cocktail glasses, Lisa’s camera, Bart’s skateboard ramp with ‘El Barto’ graffiti and an antenna on the roof.

    So many lovely details here. And those doors in a wooden colour! The graphic designers have also really gone all out on this, even though there’ll obviously be a sizeable dreaded sticker sheet, the stickers add so much character to the set. This is a must-have. I think the minifigs look pretty decent as well – the characters have cartoon-like proportions in the show, too (surprise!).

    Haha, you can see the lighting set-up in the antenna tip. I’d've thought that the photographer would position the lights closer to avoid that, but I guess it’s not a problem with anything else.
    Anyways, thanks for the heads up! I can’t say that I plan on getting this, but I look forward to seeing how this theme pans out.

    Does anyone else think that the colour of the walls in the video is pretty different from that in the pictures? Maybe it’s just the lighting.

  4. Jai

    Nah, it’s just the lighting (Which is very “cool”, or blue-toned, for the entire video — whereas in the photos, the lighting is “warm”).

    I am surprised by the price! It’s great! Awesome news.

    Judging by the old head molds showed in the video, it doesn’t look like they ever tried using normal minifig heads. Maybe they did, of course, before the prototypes they showed were created. I’m very curious as to whether they did or not! The original “dream” minifigs have normal heads, of course, but at that stage there wouldn’t have been any other option. The official heads are awfully tall, compared to a minifig head. Maybe that’s why they seem odd on the minifig bodies? Just taken in alone, of course, these new heads look really good — totally screen-accurate.

    I love the short-sleeved shirts. That’s been awhile coming, considering all of the printed arms out there at this point.

    Oh my, Marge isn’t wearing the bottom half of her dress in the couch picture! I was only looking because I wondered why they printed the apron on in the first place, instead of just the classic plain green dress (But for that matter, Homer usually isn’t wearing his work tie and badge, either. Presumably there will be “plain” versions in another set?).

    Euro crysis kicking in.

    While the heads do look decent, I’m not won over by the choice of expressions. Something about the half lidded eyes just looks…I don’t know…almost malevolent. Obviously, things may look better in person. And of course, if there are other sets, presumably they’d have more normal looks, with these expressions being more special.

    For sure, the Simpsons family are funny, no matter the style of their house and their’s culture level !
    Nice concept, because different !

  8. Creative Anarchy

    I was really worried about how Lego would handle the theme but I’m actually feeling encouraged by this set. It’s a big brick-built building. I don’t see many short-cut pieces. Lots of details, nice figures.
