This incredible Lego set (71006 – The Simpsons House) comes out in Februrary. Sure, it’s got Bart Simpson on a skateboard and a quarter pipe, but really this is just an excuse to post about Lego again. I just picked up the Everstorm robotic set, err.. for my kids. Haven’t had time to start it up yet. This Simpsons set looks pretty damned cool though, although Bart has droopy eyes for some reason. As expensive as it is ($199), I’m glad this isn’t some crappy Kre-o set. Those bricks are substandard grade ABS plastic with lousy manufacturing tolerances. Lego bricks “stick” for years while you’re lucky if a Kre-o bricks stays in place after a week. More photos at Gizmodo or on the Lego Facebook page. As of this time, there’s no mention of it on Lego.com. I can’t believe they don’t have a “news” section on their web site. I’m starting the timer now… one of the promo photos features Bart skitching behind the family car, and all that without a helmet too. Cue public outrage… now.
