    My 10yo told me about this last Thursday. We looked it up & she proceeded to critique the set, as in "Where's Lisa's sax-a-ma-phone?" & "Why's Marge in an apron?" Et cetera.

    (I raised my daughter with a healthy night-time routine, just as the experts advise: since she was a baby til last year or so, we watched a Simpsons rerun every night. When it was over, that was bedtime. As a result, she's got quite the discerning eye…)

    Despite her critique, neither of us wavered from our original proclamation that we HAVE to get this!! Yes it's pricey & flawed but we'll just have to tighten our belts & shoehorn it into the budget somehow…

    Found out today that the set will be available to LEGO VIP's from the official LEGO store on Friday, the 17th. I am pretty sure I will be there when it opens that morning to buy 2 :).

    Im a bit jealous! I would like 2 as well - one to put together and probably set it on my desk. The other to keep with the rest of my Simpsons collection.

    Do you love it?

    To answer all of the questions, I am in Canada, I do love it, but no I have not started to build one yet, both are in the box. One will go into storage and one will be built soon. It will take several hours, so will have to start when I know I can finish it. Probably a 6 hour build I am thinking.

    I ordered mine today. I can hardly wait! (Normally, the only Lego kits I build are the modular buildings -- just finished the Parisian restaurant.) However, this is just too cool to pass up.

    It's good but if prices are right it's way to expensive.

    For what it is, the amount of pieces (and the fact that it's an official Simpsons product), it's not THAT expensive.

    In the Netherlands it became available as a pre-order for € 219,- and will ship out from 19th February

    Bit expensive if you ask me, but I really really really really want one.

    Thing is, I played with Lego as a child en nowadays I have nothing. But always loved to watch the Lego boxes of SW and LOTR in the local stores. Never bought it, because then I will be addictive and want them all.

    But I can't anymore with this release of the Simpsons House. Do you guy's think there gonna be sold out quick?
    Do you think there is gonna be a new line of Simpsons based Lego models?

    Wanna pre-order, but have to convince my wife :lol:

    For what people are quoting $200+ and you say that's not expensive. If I head a spare £150( that's in £ converted from $) I wouldn't buy it. Really it is expensive

    It's going to be sold out I bet ! Before I got mine I called a few stores in my area and they were waiting for another delivery and it's not even out for the public to purchase yet. So I ended up buying it online.
