A month or so ago, it was made public that The Simpsons would be making a soccer-themed episode which would feature animated versions of Chelsea players. Even though I no longer watch new episodes of The Simpsons, they share a great deal of my past and having two of my interests coincide is pretty neat.
It’s funny they wasted time drawing Fernando Torres in a Chelsea uniform though.
But I also spent my youth playing with LEGO minifigures, and now I see that they’re making The Simpsons characters in LEGO form, which is the embodiment of awesomeness. Apparently they already sell a version of the Simpson’s house, but they’re adding several other key characters. These figures come with some nice details too, like Burns’ “Blinky,” Ralph’s “I choo-choo-choose you!” card, and Maggie’s “Bobo” bear. I do wish they had a Groundskeeper Willie, as he’s one of my favorite characters, but this is a good cross-section of life in Springfield.
I may have to teach the baby to play with LEGOs sooner rather than later…
