I'm not a huge fan of The Simpsons myself , but I would say that roughly 25 years (that's a lot !!) of running TV shows (plus a movie , comics, videogames, etc.)  have definitively helped to build a huge fan base .

I would say the Simpson franchise will always sell to somebody due to the endless followers and the constant presence to the eyes of yougers and less (target age could be 15-40 y.o. ?)

in short words : winner

 

Thanks for that, saves me having to write it  - and you put it better.

 

The problem with this set is that there is ZERO appeal for non Simpsons fans.  It's a boring looking house.

 

see above :)

 

Place a pre order as soon as you can as these will run out quicker than the Maersk Triple-E.  Even though I can't stand the Simpsons (I wish them all a nasty, painful death), I release that I'm in the minority and this theme will be ****-U-***-E.

 

3 pages of replies within a day of original post says it all.

 

You'll have to order them with a paper bag on your head :) Just keep thinking its an investment. UK point,

I am baffled that people are skeptical on the investment value of this. Simpsons is a titanic license and property, if the SpongeBob sets were winners (and they are) there is a 0% chance this set won't be a winner.

 

Now if only we could get some South Park sets....

VIP members of Lego and diehard Simpsons fans rejoice because you may be able to purchase this set next month starting on the 17th! According to the Lego calendar for February, there will be VIP access to buy an unknown exclusive set. Could it be The Simpsons House? Or perhaps to coincide with The Lego Movie, Captain MetalBeard's Sea Cow or Benny's Spaceship?

Only if you buy the entire UK's supply....... again. :P:turned:

 

You got me!  That's why I'm going to open a new VIP account for this very purpose. Even though I'm not a Simpsons fan, they are probably the most famous TV family albeit animated, the theme is timeless and what better set than their house?  If I can scroll down to 99 at time of purchase, I'm taking a punt on this one.  I missed out on the Maersk 3E as I was away for a few days but, I've backordered some.

That's the beauty of Asda, you can buy the lot and they won't bat an eyelid.

That was the original rumored release date which could still end up being true. Since next month's calendar doesn't actually give a name as to what will be available in the VIP preview for some reason, we won't know until the whole thing is revealed or until the time comes to order it off Shop-at-Home.

It would be great if a big box store would sell these, but you'll probably only find them at online retailers and the Lego Store.  The big TRU stores or FAO might get them, or maybe a surprise at B&N, but that's probably it.

given the price point, it's interesting that the set number doesn't start with "one-zero".  could this be exempt from the "no-discount on exclusives" rule?

 

i used to be a simpsons fan, but haven't really thought about them for years.  an interesting choice between this @ $200 and Orthanc for personal collection.
