There are some late night rumors swirling about a LEGO licensing agreement with 20th Century Fox of possible The Simpsons sets as early as 2014. Mads Nipper, LEGO’s marketing director, confirms there are ongoing negotiations with the creators of The Simpsons to produce LEGO sets of the iconic cartoon series. There’s no word yet of when an agreement is expected as of this time.
If there is an agreement between the company giants, it will mark another victory in LEGO’s corner of attracting some well-known 80’s-90’s cartoons in becoming official sets including the recently released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme. I feel the Simpsons sets will be pretty popular with AFOLs and TFOLs due to the large array of bright colors used to create the cartoon. What are your thoughts of some LEGO The Simpsons sets? Stay tuned for more details of this very surprising news.
Update: The rumors are now confirmed!
