Simpsons LEGO

LEGO announced today they’ll start making sets based on The Simpsons in 2014. I have a few thoughts on that:

I hope the Homer Simpson head doesn’t come with the little knob on top, but rather just has the little streaks of hair. Because a hairy Homer, well, that should not be done. In fact, I almost hope the characters come with sculpted heads kind of like they did for Patrick Star and Squidward and Sandy Cheeks when they did their SpongeBob Squarepants line. Marge without her blue bouffant would look weird.
I also hope that rather than just sticking to themes – Moe’s Tavern, the Simpsons house, Springfield Elementary, etc., the creators at LEGO look at some scenes and build sets around them. On that, I have a few suggestions:
Homer’s BBQ Pit:

Springfield Monorail, featuring Leonard Nimoy and Mayor Quimby:

The Simpsons Encounter the Boogeyman:

Homer Cleans the Garage:

Stop the Planet of the Apes, featuring Selma Bouvier and Troy McClure:

Fire Drill, featuring Monty Burns and Waylon Smithers:

Homer’s Brain, featuring random Disney characters and the Flanders Family:

Homer, trapped in the vending machines, featuring Lenny and Carl:

Homer as Terminator, featuring the Flanders Family:

Fat Guy Hat:

A guy can dream, can't he?
