LEGO Minifigures – The Simpsons Series (71005) Review

Last year, it was rumored that The LEGO Group was negotiating a licensing agreement with 20th Century Fox to produce sets based on The Simpsons animated cartoon series.

Fast forward to this year, LEGO released The Simpsons House (71006) back in February and today, LEGO has released a line of LEGO Minifigures based on the popular TV series. The official name for this series is LEGO Minifigures – The Simpsons Series (71005).

LEGO Minifigures MMO Countdown

LEGO Minifigures MMO Countdown

Last year, we reported that LEGO has teamed up with Norwegian game developer, Funcom to create a new massive multiplayer online game that will be based on the LEGO Collectible Minifigures line. Funcom has a countdown going for the LEGO Minifigures on their page and in 12 days, they will be releasing more details of the game. You can subscribe to their email list and be notified when more information is available.

LEGO Minifigures will be the second MMO game that LEGO releases with the first being the popular but failed LEGO Universe MMO and will be available for PC and Mac sometime in 2014. Players will be able to use a wide range of minifigures from the Collectible Minifigures line and each character will have their own set of abilities. Players take part in quests and PvP battles to unlock power bricks to increase their minifigure’s abilities. Looking at some of the screenshots below, the game looks like it will bring back some of LEGO Universe. In addition to playing on PCs, the game will have the ability to tie-in with mobile devices including Android, iOS, and Windows Mobile. We’ll do another post when details emerge from Funcom in a few weeks.

Update: Details have been revealed.

Office Wall Filled With 1200 LEGO Minifigures

Tax season is coming up here in the US so this is fairly relevant. A UK company called Qubic Tax wanted something to liven their office. They commissioned this project to creative consulting firm, Acrylicize, to come up with something that revolved around the “Tax” theme. They got together and figured something out that would best fit the vision Qubic wanted. What better way to represent this vision is to make a wall filled with LEGO minifigures. Why minifigures? They characterize the population in that people have many different jobs, but all of them have something similar: Everyone pays taxes. So Acrylicize spent a weekend putting together this evenly-spaced 1200 minifigure piece and hung it up. Finding 1200 different LEGO minifigs must have taken a lot of planning as well. Nobody likes to pay taxes but at least this adds a playful mood to a serious matter. After seeing this, now I want something like this at my office too.
