LEGO Simpsons Coming in 2014

August 6, 2013 - Yesterday, my email alerts lit up with fascinating teasers about LEGO introducing sets based on The Simpsons starting in 2014. I gleefully emailed the Public Relations folks at LEGO, and today's reply was that while Corporate Communications did indeed confirm this deal yesterday, the Public Relations department has nothing official to add at this time.

So... LEGO Simpsons sets are coming in 2014. Hopefully more details will be available before Toy Fair next February, and maybe we'll get lucky and see the sets in stores before then as well.
