    Thumbs Up The Simpsons Lego Project that could become official lego!



    I posted this the other day in The Andoid's Dungeon. It turns out someone made a video to showcase it, so I thought I'd open it as a full thread, so it's open for discussion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7Qfez5e7kI

    If you're like me, the Simpsons Lego sounds like it could be the best collectible series they could design for! Like the Harry Potter and Star Wars series, (their top IP's) there's just so much that can be designed. It's a project someone made on a website called Lego Cuusoo, where you share your ideas, and if you end up with 10,000 supporters, it might become an official series of products!

    If everyone on the board voted for it, they'd be able to go beyond that mark and show how popular The Simpsons is: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/12329 Imagine the whole of Springfield in Lego. Let's help the guy out. Support this, like it, tweet it, and bookmark it. Matt Groening would probably even be proud to have some Simpsons Lego set up in his office.

    Those are the oddest looking Legos in history... I can't get over how fat Lisa and Marge look; it just seems so unnatural. No offense, I'm sure the guy didn't intend for it to happen but Simpsons & Legos just don't mix.

    Good luck though.

    Is this foreboding a Lego Simpsons Game?

    They'd look better if they didn't have so many details on the clothing. Heck, they're more detailed then the Simpsons themselves. Just do straight up flat colors and geometric shapes.

    The Simpsons Blocko figures have the right idea:

    UP AND ATOM!

    They did, the picture I posted was just the 'high quality' title pic for the project, if you followed the links you can see all the minifigure example images with simple details and that's where you need to go to support the project. Go here to support it: The Simpson Lego Project and here to watch the fan video: Simpsons Lego Youtube

    Here are the examples:

    I remember the Blockos when they came out...don't think they were successful. If the Blackos aren't successful, then neither would the LEGO's, with the exception of a few die-hard Simpsons collectors.

    Wall Street Journal, Friday, March 8, 2013, pB3

    Lego A/S. looking to expand its string of partnerships with media franchises, is in talks with 20th century Fox about making a toy set based on TV show "The Simpsons." a spokesman said on Thursday.

    A deal would pair the Danish toy maker with what is believed to be the longest-running scripted show in U.S. TV history. "The Simpsons" has a cult following and appeals to younger audiences as well as adults who have followed the show since they were children.

    Link to that WSJ piece. Surprised it's taken this long given the clear yellow synergy.

    I honestly don’t look forward to the sets but I know many of you do so let us know below what you think of having LEGO Simpsons sets.
    Okay. Thank you for that additional information, Tomas the blogger.

    What do you think they put in the Bug Juice?

    No they don't. Come on...shut up.

    Don't get me wrong, I love both Lego and The Simpsons, but they really don't mix. Having said that, if Lego released a Simpsons set, I would definitely buy it.

    Lego would be a nice opportunity for The Simpsons to raise interest around the globe since Lego is well-known and popular around the world, at least kids might start paying more attention when The Simpsons is on TV.

    Or that's what I think, I aint no professor.

    Then to a different subject, I was a huge Lego fan as a kid, so I'd buy Simpsons Legos just to get back to the golden childhood. I mean, if there ever will be those.

    Futurama Legos would be much cooler. But Venture Bros. Legos would be even better than that!

    As reported on the NHC Twitter feed, Simpsons Lego has now been officially confirmed for 2014.

    Really hope they release a Simpsons home that opens to reveal all the rooms of the house.

    Making Lego products based on a show as crass, violent and inappropriate for children as The Simpsons will end civilization as we know it, apparently...

    Haha! Wow. So a bunch of grown men on a LEGO forum who find The Simpsons to be the equivalent of adult entertainment?

    I loved this bit:

    I've seen screenshots of the Simpsons, and I've also watched it a couple of times. Not only do I find it downright stupid (no offense to anyone who likes it), there are scenes in it that should hardly be considered "okay" for children.

    Losing LEGO Universe was an upsetting thing for me, and I, in my unhappiness, actually wished for LEGO have a downfall. But that was simply in my grief for losing something I loved (yes, I'm very poetic with this stuff). But on that note, I don't understand why it was so hard to KEEP LU up when they've made at least fourteen new themes... as well as two new MMO's... AND a movie.

    But back to the topic at hand, I completely and totally agree with you. It is not right for children, at all.
    Seeing "screenshots"... that made me laugh. Do these dopes realize how much Simpsons merch exists for kids? Hell, I grew up with a room full of Simpsons stuff and had a brief LEGO obsession. Mid 90's me would be all over the LEGO Simpsons stuff!

    Haha! Also, this quote from the LEGO forum:

    True, Bart does not blow up the mall, but he pull somewhat of an explosive prank in the restroom at his school. He was rewarded by being sent to France as an exchange student. His dad and the principal were glad to be rid of him. Bart goes on to uncover an antifreeze in the wine operation and in the end calls his family stupid (in French). Yeah, wonderful family values, which is why I am a bit puzzled with this move.
    Complaining about Bart's hijinks in The Crepes of Wrath. A season 1 episode. What is this? 1990's news reports?

    Wahahaha so much classic stuff there.

    I don't like the Simpson's either and have never watched it.
