It is an open secret that we are LEGO fanatics. Since we had reviewed the last LEGO Movie Minifigures Series, we thought it will be great to do a follow up with the latest LEGO minifigures series The Simpsons LEGO minifigure series.
The boys are not familiar with The Simpsons. As a result I thought this time round I could claim the collection as my own. I had initially set out to just collect The Simpsons family comprising of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie. However when the boys caught sight of my new acquisition, it was destined to be part of THEIR collections of LEGO minifigures.
With that came the request to complete it and thus the origin of this review.
As per the previous review of LEGO movie minifigures, we give you tips on how to pick the minifigure you want. There are a total of 16 minifigures in this series to collect!
The iconic character from The Simpsons and a must have in the collection. A plus Is that he has 'sleeve' hands , which I believe is new to minifigures . Most minifigures hands component are printed in a single colour. There are 4 characters with 'sleeve' hands in the series including Homer, Nelson and Milhouse. Bar is quite easy to identify, feel for the skateboard and two set of wheels to confirm.
He is the Dad of Bart and just as popular as him. The small parts are critical to identify him. Feel for the remote control and donut.
|Homer and Marge|
Marge is the mother of Bart and the girls. She is easy to identify by the bumpy long hairpiece. Feel the bag and square magazine for confirmation.
There are a total of 5 short legs characters, including the charismatic Liza . For Her, the head and the Saxaphone is the differentiator.
|Sisters : Lisa and Maggie|
The baby of the family and possibility LEGO first infant baby character. This one will be a must have for the one piece infant itself. Feel the teddy bear to get this little baby.
GRAMPA can be mistaken with Homer as they have similar head. Feel the square newspaper to ascertain his identity,
KRUSTY THE CLOWN
This clown is not funny in reel life. An easy piece to identify with the two protruding hair piece.
|Krusty the Clown|
Part of the popular cartoon on Simpsons world , Itchy and Scratchy , Scratchy is one mean cat that always try to hurt Itchy but failed. He is a paradox of Tom of the ' Tom and Jerry' fame. Feel for his axe and his unique tail accessory that can be used in other minifigures.
|SCRATCHY and ITCHY|
Don't underestimate the little mouse. His obvious club and ears are a sure giveaway using the touch and identify technique.
Otherwise known as Charles Montgomery Burns. Springfield's richest and most powerful man can be identified by the radioactive rod and the fishbowl.
The head of police at Springfield can be identified by his loud hailer and baton.
|Chief Wiggum, Nelson Muntz, APU Nahasapeemapetilion|
He is the main bully and Bart's former arch enemy. His baseball bat is uniquely shaped . Feel for the groove.
Better known as APU, he is the owner of Kiwi E-mart. Identify him by his cup. Note his cup does not have handle.
|Milhouse Van Houten & Ned Flanders|
Bart's best friend , he can be identified from his Square Biclops comics. He can be mistaken with Ralph Wiggum as both has the same number of similar parts. The difference will be from the shape of the head.
The good natured neighbor. He is an easy pick with the distinct tool box and mug
His is the resident oddball with the weirdest lines in the show. Identify him by his square Happy Valentines card. Do not mistake him with Milhouse.
