Finally some images of the new Simpsons House, and what a house I would say… The first pictures of the Simpsons’ head set shows us a huge building with an aesthetic completely different from most of the city, friends or even Creator houses that I’ve seen so far, having an even more similar look to the real world.
This new Simpsons set brings more than two thousand and five hundred pieces and features the gigantic (yes, it looks considerably big…) house with a garage, several accessories for the garden such as the mail box, the barbecue, the skate board park, Homer’s Pink car and of course the Simpsons’ family: Bart, Homer, Marge, Maggie, Lisa and its pleasant (not…) neighbor Ned Flanders.
The House is built with a great color scheme, mixing the dark brown in the roof with the light brown of the walls, and presents two floors and a nice garage next to it. The house’s front has two big windows and a nice entrance, in the ground floor and above these there a couple of smaller windows for the rooms.
At the left side we can see a tall chimney with exactly the same height of the building and two additional windows. The first one has probably the most important feature which is allowing opening the enormous front and access to the entire interior. Finally, the back wall is the part that for now is not visible, but as far as we can see through the interior, there are some rooms with windows which make me speculate that it might be very close in terms of look to the front one.
The entire roof, including the garage, can also be easily removed which is great in terms of playability and access to the interior without having to open the house. Talking about this part I would say that there are furnished rooms for everyone, a nice kitchen, a piano room and a nice living room with a big TV.
The interior is definitely pretty well detailed ( I especially like the big sofa for the all family, the piano and the full equipped kitchen) however in my opinion I think that there are too much walls when the house is opened, giving some times the sensation the some claustrophobia for the guys.
Continuing with the garage, it doesn’t seem attached to the house so I guess we can move it from one side to the other every time we want. It uses the same shades of the main house including a gate with the some color of the chimney and inside it provides space for Homer’s vehicle which not being pretty, surely recreates the original present in the eighties’ series. Made with pink bricks it has a completely straight design, a long hood but I wonder if it has room inside for the entire family…
Overall this is absolutely a great set! The house is simply beautiful, it has a lot to play with, inside and outside, and the mini-figures this time look better than in previous images. Will it worth the most probable two hundred dollars? For the true Simpsons fans surely it does for all the above reasons, however for those who were not very familiar with these cartoons I wonder if they won’t think in other sets to spend their money! Enjoy the pictures!
