LEGO Simpsons minifigure collection

I was really happy last year when LEGO announced the superbe LEGO Simpsons House, even if it was too expensive for me. I was happy because I hoped they would release other Simposons themed sets.

And they have done something even better, they are releasing a Simpsons minifigure collection!

The Big Brick Theory

Once more I've found a gold nugget in the great blog of Gang de Geeks, these guys are simply great (if you speak French you should add them to your daily browsing habits right now!).

I guess you know Cuusoo, the crowd-sourcing community project from LEGO to allow fans to submit their ideas for new LEGO Sets. Since its creation the site has received hundred of ideas, ans some of the most popular have become true LEGO sets, like the incoming LEGO Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Set.

And the project I discovered thanks to Gang de Geeks is the Mini-Big Bang Theory, a campaign to recreate the TV series in minifig format.

If you're like me, the above picture has made you want to open your wallet and buy the set right now. Well, it isn't possible, the project hasn't be approved yet, but it has gathered enough support to archive the review stage, i.e. LEGO is taking it in consideration.

You cans see more pics in the Cuusoo page or in the
the campaign page for Lego Big Bang Theory.

Let's hope it passes the review and that next year we will found mini-Sheldon and mini-Leonard (and mini-Penny!) in our toy stores!

LEGO Simpsons, a making of

I guess you have already seen lots of pics of the incoming LEGO Simpsons set, one of the most expected sets of LEGO since, well, ever...

Today I've found this Google+ post showing some pictures of the creation and design of LEGO Simpsons minifigures.

Having done a bit of miniature scupting myself, I find this pic set fascinating. Rather naively, I thought they would sculpt the minifigures in real size, as most miniature manufacures do, not in a bigger scale. I'd love to know more about the process...
