LEGO Reveals The Simpsons Minifigures Series
Posted Mar 26 2014 - 08:27 AM
LEGO has revealed the minifigures series for The Simpsons on Twitter and Facebook. The series features 16 characters from The Simpsons and is going to be released in May. If you are a Simpsons fan, it looks like you have something to look forward to but even if you are not, I can spot several very interesting pieces. It's certainly an interesting move by LEGO and makes me wonder if we'll see more licensed minifigure series in the future.

I can't really get excited about these sets, but I think there's potential for some downright glorious parts.

While this is true of a lot of accessories (and naturally, the heads), most of the clothing is incredibly generic and could have widespread applications.
I can't say I'll buy any of these. Except for the recolor of the "Coffee Chain" cup, nothing really sticks out. Plus, Simpsons references on most of the pieces could make it hard to work them into non-Simpsons creations (i.e. the 3 eyed fish, the coffee cup and the newspaper).

Hey, these are actually pretty cool. They fixed the family's faces from the versions in the house so they look a lot better. Interesting how they decided to include Itchy and Scratchy separately as regular-sized minifigures. And there's that Milhouse figure from The Lego Movie. I think because of all the new molds and stuff for the heads the price increase is justified (and more Simpsons sets might be nice). But, according to the Toy Fair price guide on Eurobricks, the next Collectable Minifigure Series will also be $4 despite being normal minifigures- which really sucks. Legos are kind of too expensive as it is, 4 bucks for one minifigure is way too much.
...Also, it seems they are going family-friendly with this line, with no beer or Barney or Moe's Tavern. I wonder how this will affect the TV special in May? Also, I wonder if in the episode we'll see characters that aren't represented in sets or if they'll be limited to what you can buy. For Lego fans alone I guess this special brings some interest in The Simpsons, which it hasn't really had for years because it's been really terrible.
