LEGO is cool. Minifigures are cool. The Simpsons used to be cool, but you can still look back on it and remember when it was really funny and pretty much generation defining, so it makes sense to combine the two. The only question is why hasn’t it happened sooner!?
It’s actually happening to coincide with a new episode of The Simpsons which is based around LEGO. Really sounds like they’re scraping the barrel with that show now but hey, we can still watch repeats and love them and look back on it with nostalgia by collecting this new minifigures series.
Some of the character choices are a bit bewildering – as much as I love them are Itchy and Scratchy really two of the best Simpsons characters? – but I was kind of at a loss for who else I would have included in there. Maybe Smithers or Duff Man or Snake or Sideshow Lionel Hutz or Mrs Krabappel or Principal Skinner or Groundskeeper Willy ? None of them are really that cool though, except maybe Duff Man, although I guess they’re a hell of a lot cooler than clowns like Apu and Ned Flanders. Pretty glad that Nelson made it in though.
Check out who made it below. They’re available May 1st so start counting the days now.
