Last summer saw the release of (71006) The Simpsons House a 2500 piece behemoth that long time of the fans of America’s first family giddily embraced. One of the long held rumors within the online LEGO community was that there would be another set based on The Simpsons coming in 2015. And as early as last fall there were persistent unconfirmed reports that we would see Apu Nahasapeemapetilon’s iconic convenience store in 2015 which many (myself included) were very skeptical of.
Today a user on LEGO fan forum Eurobricks posted a blurry snapshot of the upcoming set, which is believed to be slated for release on May 1st.
I fully expect this set to come in at a 2500 piece count and $199.99. There’s so much detail on the front, I just cannot wait to see what the inside looks like. I will be sure to update as soon as non-potato quality pictures make themselves available.
