The Simpsons Lego set and minifigs to release in April/May 2014

We first heard in March that Lego was working with 20th Century Fox to release The Simpsons-branded minifigs and sets, and now there's a new report that details what the entire range will allegedly entail.

The licensed range had been rumoured to include various buildings, characters etc, but Nerdly has a few specifics coming straight from an unnamed insider at a "special Fox/Lego event."

Lego is reportedly set to release a collection much like the Olympic minifigures. It will feature series 13 blind-bag minifigures, with 16 Simpsons characters in total. Among the characters are Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Apu, Chief Wiggum, Moe, Itchy and Scratchy. Expect a release sometime in May 2014.

As for the Lego set with Brickset and Bricks & Bloks, Nerdly could only confirm that The Simpsons' house will be available for purchase via the Lego website and Lego stores in April 2014.

Last, but not least - the upcoming Lego range will debut in conjunction with a special Simpsons Lego TV episode on Fox in May 2014. It will apparently be quite similar to the Lego Star Wars specials.
