Just two weeks ago, we reported on a rumor that the Simpsons might make a comeback in LEGO brick form which points to the fact that the licensed theme is not over yet, even after the demise of the now discontinued LEGO Dimensions. This rumor has now been put to rest with LEGO finally revealing and confirming that the Simpsons patriarch and the mischievous clown of Springfield now have their official LEGO BrickHeadz version. In a tweet sent out by the LEGO Group just a few minutes ago, we now have our first look at the LEGO BrickHeadz Homer Simpson and Krusty the Clown (41632) dual-pack set.
The tweet mentioned no specific date of release but our best bet will be sometime in January, as this is expected to be part of LEGO’s 2019 wave of BrickHeadz sets. This BrickHeadz version of Homer and Krusty the Clown is numbered #78 and #79 respectively, and is expected to retail like its other dual-pack predecessors for $20 USD. I like how Homer turned out with his signature donut and bulging tummy. His LEGO designers even went far in adding the usual antenna pieces to re-create those lone strands of hair on his head. Krusty’s brick-built hair on the other hand, is superbly designed with those teal pieces ingeniously stacked to recreate his iconic clown wig. Needless to say, this is another LEGO BrickHeadz set that I’m looking forward to have.
The LEGO BrickHeadz Homer Simpson and Krusty the Clown (41632) set is slated to arrive in early 2019 and is expected to be joined by the another dual-pack set, which is the LEGO BrickHeadz Gellert Grindelwald and Newt Scamander (41631).
