With the release of The LEGO Movie, one can make a case that the brand understands the limitations of creating specific scenes and sets but hasn't given up on a child's imagination.
 

With their movie at the top of the box office two weeks in a row now, LEGO debuted their Ghostbusters themed set at Toy Fair 2014 this past week and also had their set based on The Simpsons on display. The former is possibly a one-off product in the license as it in the CUUSOO line, a consumer voted on project whose last set was Back to the Future related, while the latter is expected to be bigger given that Milhouse appears in The LEGO Movie and the 550th episode of The Simpsons to air in May will be animated using the “highly sophisticated interlocking brick system”. According to EW, in the episode entitled ““Brick Like Me”, Homer wakes up in a world where his family and everyone in Springfield are made of Legos.”

While you wait for the episode, you can view some of the new toys below, including a Star Wars Rebel line. We unfortunately couldn’t get pictures of figures related to the Michael Bay TMNT movie or Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy or Minecraft, but expect those to be on the way in the near future.
