Lego has officially announced The Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart (71016). It was not long ago the box art leaked, and now there are more then enough photos of this wonderful set. The release will include 6 Minifigures: Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Bart Simpson, Homer Simpson, Marge Simpson, Police Chief Wiggum Clancy, and Snake Jailbird. Snake is exclusive to this set, and Apu features a new clothing. Someone who works for Lego is a Simpsons fan, notice that they fit Apu’s full name on the box: Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. Wow.
The Kwik-E-Mart playset will include 2,179 pieces and retails for $199.99. The same price point as the Lego Simpsons House. (Reviewed here) The whole set is jam packed full of details. There is a Squishee machine, magazine and newspaper rack, full stocked shelving, fully stocked freezers, a frozen Jasper (sticker?), an ATM, security cameras, the list goes on and on. They even included the secret garden on the rooftop, where Apu goes to for refuge from the modern world.
This set is looking like a must buy for Simpsons fans, and probably Lego fans too. There is an abundance of color, and rare shades, all over the Kwik-E-Mart. Or, as Lego says the “store is packed with more rich, colorful details than a Mr. Burns birthday cake has candles!” The first thing I will be doing is adding Milhouse to the display and recreating the famous all-syrup Super Squishy bender (here). Lets go crazy broadway style!
