LEGO shows preview of their Simpsons minifigure series

After seeing LEGO’s version of The Simpsons’ house, I was excited to see what else would come out in this line. Now we have a look at their latest Simpsons minifigure series. Posted on their Facebook, there are 16 classic characters from the show included.

So you’ll see Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge, Maggie, Itchy, Scratchy, Krusty, Nelson, Milhouse, Apu, Chief Wiggum, Mr. Burns, Ralph, Grandpa and Flanders. Each figure will come with an accessory that’s true to their character. Lisa has her saxophone, Maggie has Mr. Burns’ teddy bear, and Ralph Wiggum has his valentine from Lisa.

Unlike The Simpson’s house model, these aren’t incredibly expensive. They will be US$4 each, which is a price I can get behind. So buying every figure won't be such a hassle on your wallet. These minifigures are expected to come out in May.

Tomopop LinkUP: Ready. Set. LEGO!

LEGO toys are one of those things that I think most boys and probably a lot of girls can associate with. Raise your hand if you've ever tried to dig a LEGO brick out of your mom's vacuum or know the pain of stepping on a bloc...

Custom Delights: Lego Junkie creates cool Portal 2 bookends

Even though Portal 2 came out in 2011, I only just recently played and finished the game. So I’m late in gushing over how amazing I think that game was. Thankfully, fans aren’t done showing how much they loved th...

Ellen's Oscar selfie turned into LEGO

This year's Academy Awards gave the internet some pretty amusing memes. I mean, there was a John Travolta name generator out mere hours after his on-stage verbal disaster. The one that I've seen the most has to be Ellen's sel...

Custom LEGO Jaegers and Kaiju are glorious

Several months ago, Emily posted a LEGO Gypsy Danger designed by Mako. It was glorious and I rejoiced. I prayed to the robo-heavens for more. More Jaegers, more Kaiju, more anything Pacific Rim-related. It seems those wishes ...
