Matt De Lanoy has rebuilt Springfield’s most famous landmarks in a build sure to satisfy even the most jaded Simpsons fan.
Not too long ago The Simpsons took a turn for the LEGO, receiving its own official set recreating the famous fictional family’s home in glorious plastic. It was an impressive model that made more than a few of the series’ long running fans happy. For some, however, that glimpse at LEGO-fide Simpsons wasn’t enough. Some, like LEGO builder Matt De Lanoy, wanted more. And so, as with most stories involving the world’s favorite miniature plastic bricks, he built it.
Expanding well past the ambitions of the LEGO company itself, De Lanoy recently released a Flickr gallery showing off a custom build of Springfield including the Simpson and Flanders houses, the Mr. Burns Nuclear Power Plant, the Kwik-e-Mart, The Android’s Dungeon comic shop, the Stonecutter’s Club and more. Granted, it doesn’t cover every nook and cranny of the town, but definitely hits enough of the most popular spots and arguable essentials that any Simpsons fan could be happy.
In fact, as a fan myself(who admittedly hasn’t watched the show regularly for years), I can safely say that browsing through De Lanoy’s gallery left me with a strong hankering to bust out my DVDs and revisit the show in its heyday. As far as I’m concerned, anything that does that is doing its job. Check out De Lanoy’s build and let us know what you think.
