Lego is coming to Springfield.
The toy giant confirmed Wednesday that it will soon release a Simpsons house set. Reports had been circulating for a few days about the kit.
According to Lego, the set will go on sale on February 1, and will retail for $200. The company also will release a set of Simpsons minifigures in May that will cost $4 each. Finally, there will be a Lego-themed episode of "The Simpsons" that will air in May in which the show's characters and the town of Springfield will appear in Lego form.
It seems certain that the new Lego set will be a big hit, given the enduring popularity of "The Simpsons," and the global love that the plastic bricks continue to have.
The set features the entire Simpsons' house, including detailed interior rooms, as well as minifigures of each of the show's main characters -- Homer, Bart, Marge, Maggie, Lisa, and Ned Flanders.
