Lego just announced that the Simpsons will be joining the world of Lego and as a fan of both the Simpsons and Lego I am very happy about this. Ever since Lego came out with Star Wars I wondered what else could be made into Legos. I really started to wonder why the Simpsons were not when they came out with the Spongebob sets. I love the Indiana Jones, Batman, Star Wars, and Marvel sets a lot and when I heard Simpsons were coming out I was ecstatic!
For a long time Lego was in decline because its models ad series were not selling that well. I remember growing up the series I had were the pirates, town, aqua, and Wild West. Personally I enjoyed these sets and never got tired of building and playing with them. We had a large Lionel “O-gauge” set and Legos were the perfect size to act as towns people and buildings for the layout.
Now the Simpsons will be joining and I will be sure to build them all. As a huge Simpsons fan and lego fan i hope they really honor the history and make some amazing sets. Here are a few top fives I would like to see since we already know the entire family will be there.
