In The Simpsons the show started with the focus on Bart, but over time Homer Simpson won the hearts of viewers and writers. What better way to celebrate this iconic character than this Lego Homer Simpson Bust built by Julius von Brunk. This Homer is life-size, which mean this model is a lot bigger than you would expect. The model proved to be more difficult than expected, especially the curved shape of the head. This Lego Homer has all the expected hair, which along the sides is made out of angled Lego horns, and the two strands on top are made out of slopes. The ears in particular turned out well and give the final model a lot of personality. A good example of how a Lego build will change over time is that the original model had a different eye design that even had eyelids. But, at the last minute they were redesigned with the more classic wide-eyed look. D’oh!
