71006 The Simpsons House (Press Release)

Recommended Posts

I agree on the Lisa's sax matter, maybe it will appear along the Lisa figure of the Simpsons Minifigures Series (13 I think?) since it seems a rather special item. Hell, for $200 they could have added it in this set!

Another thing: why Marge's legs do not have her shoes printed on? Even Bart has his shoes printed, Marge seems to walk around barefoot. Anyway, I guess this set is worth the $200 it costs.

Finally, a complete house with a back side, not just a half one! Might start to buy LEGO again.

Lego have done quite a view of these in the last years. Look at the Creator series and to some extent the Mopdulars (Pet Shop has a townhouse in the set, for example).

Imagine this news in the SW or LotR section - would we only have 4 pages of replies? Any great MOC would do better in the amount of feedback it would get I believe.

I wonder how this line will be doing.

A totally super impressive set ever for 2014. It is a very nice surprise to see this! And, I can't believe that I am more interested in the set than the minifigures itself. The entire house is just like a beauty. :wub:

I'm thinking they saved it as the special character defining item to package with her in the CMF. Let's be honest, while their are tons of neat items that you can attach to Bart, Homer or even Maggie, There are very few accessories that really scream Lisa beyond her sax.

Has anyone noticed Marge is looking towards Ned standing by the BBQ in a cheeky way ? :laugh: (well, he is single now.....oh, wait what about Homer ? :laugh: )

Ha! Marge has always had a thing for Ned. Stuff like this makes me want to get Marge's fantasized shirtless Ned as a minifigure. :grin:

And, Ned isn't single, it's just that Edna is a retired character. So technically she's still around. I hope she comes in the CMF series, but she isn't the most exciting character. I guess we'll see soon.

What?

I forget which episode that is... :grin:

Who then also died (the voice actor).

The character is still technically alive, but I'm not sure if we'll see her in a LEGO set as she's a retired character. It depends how long ago this CMF series was produced. If it was before the death of the VA, then we may see her in the CMF series.

If you're talking about "A Streetcar Named Marge" then that was no fantasy. (It was a play) And Marge doesn't have a thing for Ned!

I was talking about this version.

According to the Wikia, it was "How Flanders was once pictured by Marge when she was writing a book." Again, I don't remember the episode. :wink::laugh:

Back to this house set, :grin: I'm starting to think we won't see an early V.I.P. release for it. Which is perfect. February 1st is a Saturday, so I'm off that day! :purrr:

I'm pretty sure that there will be an early release, but I'm more than likely wrong.

T-shirt arms. I've wanted them for years but didn't think they were possible. Thank you TLG. Thank you Matt Groening. :wub:

Okay so the blindbags...

Normal Homer, Flanders and Marge will likely be in them. Just their basic clothing. But this set seems to contain normal Bart, Lisa and Maggie already, besides the eyes (potentially). Will the blind bags just have the same ones? Probably with new gear like the sax of course but... that seems kind of weak. :P

At the same time I'd kind of doubt we'd get get something really unique for them since that would mean the only way you'd get the normal ones is by spending $200. So no Bartman.

You are pretty sure but likely wrong? :wacko:
