A LEGO Replica Of The Simpsons' Springfield

LEGO released its own licensed build kit for The Simpsons house in celebration of the show's 25th anniversary a few months ago, but as we know, true mini brick building savants are not satisfied putting together someone else's vision. They must have their hand in its creation from the ground up.

Case in point: LEGO artist Matt De Lanoy's stunning scale replica of Springfield from The Simpsons, complete with his own version of the family's iconic abode (as well as the Flanders'), plus the school, power plant, Kwik-E-Mart, police station, Krusty Burger, Moe's, and a handful of other locations even the most casual fans will recognize.

The geographic layout has been slightly amended to squeeze everything on one board, but who cares? This is fanboyism on another level.

Hey Hey Kids!

Thank you, come again.

(Look closely and you can almost make out the Squishee machine.)

Most of the architecture was fashioned from his arsenal of regular LEGO pieces, though he also included some of the special Simpsons minifgures released earlier this year.

From The Simpsons wiki:

A surprise inspection found over 340 violations with an estimated $57 million required to bring the plant up to code, money which Burns refused to spend.

At this rate we wouldn't be surprised if De Lanoy found a way to mechanize the different pieces to recreate the full title sequence. Hint hint.
