Wow, can't believe how bent out of shape some people are getting about the Simpsons stuff.  I mean, as a parent, I understand that you don't necessarily want little kids watching the Simpsons.  But honestly, I don't see how it is much more inappropriate than Lord of the Rings, or even Pirates/Lone Ranger.  I haven't seen the Lone Ranger, but I've heard it is pretty dark in parts and definitely not little kid appropriate in those instances.  Our daughter really took an interest in Hobbit/LOTR stuff late last year/early this year, but I wasn't letting her anywhere near those movies yet (I did let her watch the Shire parts, which are her favorites anyways).  Same type of things like Pirates of the Caribbean.

I guess in a way, LEGO was a safe option for her to explore that world.  The Orcs aren't scary to her in LEGO form (we also have the game for Wii), and it was a way for her to experience LOTR without seeing the movies.  I guess the issue with Simpsons is maybe a bit different, since it isn't because of scary images but more about crudeness, but I don't see how you'll see much of that in the LEGO lineup - aside from maybe having Moe's or the Duff plant or something.

Outside of the figures all looking stoned, this may be the greatest set of all time

$199 is a great price for this set imo...I'd imagine there must be a ton of smaller sets in the pipeline and not just this thing - unless it's a stand alone release.

Yeah, the eyes are way creepy.  And no Santa's Little Helper (aka Santos L. Halper)?  #fail

Mini figs are great and all however bad the eyes look on these things but I was referring to "sets"  Look at how many LEGO movie sets are out right now (if you can find them at retail at this time in the year) and are coming out besides the Sea Cow - another massive set like this one.  They have many smaller LEGO building sets selling under that banner.

That's a great set, and a heck of a value. 2500 plus pieces for only $199 for a licensed set? By comparison, the UCS X-Wing is the same price and has 1500 pieces, and the Ewok Village has 2000 pieces for $250.

Good thing lots of the Star Wars and hero sets for the first part of the year are pretty lame, it'll free up some cash for this set.

Not sold on the minifigs but I'm sure I'll change my mind when I have them in hand.

Wow.  Sneaky preview.  I can't for the life of me figure out which character that might be.
