The Simpsons + Lego. I would have gone nuts for this as a kid. Who am I kidding, I would still love it now.

Lego announced last year that it would be producing a Simpsons range, and now the first set is almost here. At a giant 2523 pieces, 71006: The Simpsons House includes 742 Evergreen Terrace in all its glory, as well as Marge, Homer, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and Ned Flanders too. Here’s what the brand had to say:

Recreate hilarious scenes from the classic animated TV series with The Simpsons™ House. Taken right out of Springfield, this amazing model is crammed with tons of LEGO® brick detail. Lift off the roof and open up the house to discover Homer and Marge’s big family bedroom including bed and Maggie’s crib, Bart’s room with his skateboard and Krusty the Clown poster, Lisa’s room with her favorite books, jazz poster and more, and bathroom with shower, toilet, sink and mirror. 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. The Simpsons™ House is the perfect collector’s item for fans of all ages. Includes 6 minifigures: Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and Ned Flanders.”

At $199.99, the set will no doubt bring hours of joy to Simpsons fans, and cries of d’oh! when those little blocks inevitably get stuck together. Hopefully there’s more of Springfield to follow.

Lego set 71006: The Simpsons House will be available from Lego.com and retail stores worldwide from February 1. Check out the official images from Lego above.
