LEGO The Simpsons House Time-lapse Build Set 71006 – What Stop motion Easter Eggs Can You Find?!

This video is a time-lapse build of the LEGO Simpsons House Set 71006 from 2014. There is stop motion Easter eggs of The Simpsons Family up to no good … can you spot them all? Thumbnail has a couple of clues.

We also offer a general commentary on The Simpsons, why the line might not have done as well as expected (there wasn’t much beyond The Simpsons House, Kwike-mart and Mini-figure range).

What was your favourite Simpsons episodes / moment?

How do you think The Simspons will end?

Is The Simpsons appropriate for kids?

Is The Simpsons TV show still controversial or just Zombie TV?!

Transcript from the Show

G’day Everyone, Matt Elder of Family Bricks and in todays video we are going to have a look at a timelapse speed build of this LEGO Simpsons House Set 71006. Really enjoyed building this set and for a more comprehensive review of the set I’ve already done a video on that which you can click here.

In this video, be on the look out for stop motion Easter eggs happening at the same time the build is happening.

Sorting

This is a relatively old set that was released in 2014 and it hasn’t been on sale for quite a number of years. We managed to pick it up off eBay second hand for a relatively good price. I came with a boxes that was in really good condition and a good set of instructions. The only downside is that it doesn’t come in prenumbered bags so you have to shift and sort through 2,500 pieces.

eBay Tips

From eBay, I got the seller to put the minifigs in their own little bag so when you first get the set, you can double check the minifigs cause those are the things you don’t find or if they are missing and you have to replace them, they are the expensive parts particularly in this sort of Simpsons set.

Sometimes the eBay seller won’t have completely broken down the set and if possible, I get them to send it like this. Cause then when you open the box, you can have a quick look and get a sense very quickly if parts are missing. If it is coming in 1000 little individual pieces, you won’t be able to get a good sense if any parts are missing.

The Build

As we were building and going along, there were a couple of minor pieces missing. That’s ok cause we can go into our own sets and supplement them.

The car was a nice little build and you can fit 2 in the front and 2 in the back.

Initially the build felt pretty basic and you start to get a sense that over the last 5 years they have really added in a lot more building techniques into their builds and adding in a great deal of detail. Compared with something like Welcome to Apocalypseburg from the recent LEGO Movie 2.

That said the thing I really like about this is the designer has really used the space really well. And it is a really smart way that it opens like a clam shell but still closes back up and still functions and feels like a proper house.

Kids Don’t know the Simpsons…. how can that be?!

The other thing that surprised me when building this was the kids didn’t seem to know The Simpsons and the characters. They have watched the show but we generally don’t have it on, so it isn’t something that they naturally gravitate towards.

I know that other parents freak out at the idea of their kids watching The Simpsons but do wonder if that opinion is stuck from the initial controversy that the show caused when it first aired in the late 80s and early 90s.

From what I can recall, it was the 2nd show that had this dysfunctional family . Married with Children pre-dated it by several years but was on the then fledging Fox network and I don’t think many people generally had access to it. Going back and watching some of those married with Children clips, it just wouldn’t be able to do it today.

Pacing of the Show

The pace of the Simpsons show today also feels much slower. Kids shows today like Teen Titans and TNMT Team up have really fast paced gags. They also too sometimes references 80s and 90s pop culture which kids under 10 today would have no clue about and it does make you wonder who the show is written for.

It was interesting building the set and thinking about early memories of the Simpsons TV show. It had such an impact and remember in the early 90s when it was on 5 days a week, which was a huge thing cause up until then it had only been on once a week. They put it on at 6pm at night which bumped the evening news forward an hour.

I was a pretty big fan of the show and had watched every episode up until about the 12th or 13th season. Most of the episodes up until the 10th season seem multiple times as they just played them so much and was an easy show to watch.

Simpsons Memories

Do you have a favourite episode of The Simpsons? I don’t have a particularly favourite episode of the Simpsons episode but do like bits and pieces of the gags they did in different shows. Favourite gag would have been a Terminator 2 parody they did when they had Homer chasing after Ned Flanders in the car with golf clubs and doing that scene from Terminator 2 where he jumps and is trying to climb up the back of the car with his arms as the long stabbing weapons. Flanders was trying to get away from Homer because Homer was being too friendly.

LEGO Simpsons Licence and Other Possibilities

It’s a little odd that LEGO didn’t do too much more with the Simpsons license. They only did the Simpsons House, the Kiwke mart and a minfigure series. I would have thought the Springfield Nuclear power plant would have been a good one with Burns and Smithers and a whole bunch of other things.

Springfield Elementary School could have been another one. I mean they did one in Hidden Side so don’t think there is an issue with it being a school and kids not wanting to build a school because they don’t like school. Moe’s Tavern could have been another one but would have just depend upon how they wanted to represent alcohol and drinking to little children.

Maybe the line just didn’t do that well overall. Kids maybe in general maybe just not have understood the Simpsons. Cause the early episodes of the Simpsons that were really ground breaking were so long ago so maybe the kids wouldn’t be seeing the Simpsons through older nostalgia ideas like adults would be. Maybe the adult market wasn’t that big to be able to carry a whole line.

At the time the set was released, the Simpsons would have been into  their 25th season and its hard to sustain that level of interest for 25 years. Now its been going for 30 years and you do wonder if it has just become a Zombie show where the lights are on but nobody is home and they keep running it because it is easy money.

How Will the Show End?

Does make you wonder though it and when they end the series, if that last episode, or the last couple of episodes get a massive viewership spike out of that interest to see how exactly it does end. It does make you wonder what that final episode will be, what will it feel like, how will they try to wrap the series up?

How do you think the Simpsons will end? How would you like to see it end or how the storyline should go in that episode. It may just come down to a natural attrition rate as they have made the point that as the voice actors have died, they haven’t continued with those characters.

So what would happen if one of the main cast voice actors died? I would imagine the co-stars of 30 years would have a hard time of accepting anybody else into those roles.

And their you have the finalized Simpsons House. A great little build. You can check out the kids video where they are having a play with the house and really see all the play features that are there and they enjoyed. <boy driving a car into the side of the house repeatedly>

Digital /Virtual LEGO Building Primer Masterclass Neil Marsden, Pennyforge. Interview

In this video interview Neil Marsden aka Pennyforge presents a primer masterclass on virtual/digital LEGO building (originally presented at London AFOLs April 2020). Neil discusses LEGO modelling, rendering and instruction creation comparing current software tools such as LEGO Digital Designer, Bricklinks Stud.io and LDCad. Other software touched upon includes Blender, MLCad, Modo, Sketchup and Maya

Neil gives an overview of taking a traditional 3D model and converting it to real LEGO via voxel data. Pennyforge also covers scripting and touches upon the opensource nature of ldraw, underpinning all this digital LEGO building. Scripting has also been used to build words and fonts out of LEGO. A discussion of machine learning is had (so if you are able to contribute, be sure to get in touch).

See below for time codes to various parts of the interview. Topics and Discussions covered include:

0:00 Introduction

3:50 Start of Digital LEGO Masterclass

5:45 LEGO Modelling – Lego Digital Designer

8:20 Stud.io and Bricklink Integration

10:10 LDCad – High end LEGO Cad tool which supports flexible parts, power functions, custom decals => tool of choice albeit quirky. Work through tutorials on LDCad website

11:30 MLCad – Good for minifigure design and custom decals

12:00 What is LDraw – basis for all the tools, open standard/source for LEGO and has all the pieces

13:00 OpenSDraw – scripting model creations, powerful but complex. Works with libraries of LEGO parts.

14:00 Python and Ldraw directly. Writing scripts to create imaginary that would be difficult to make manually ie figure placement, models from designs/fonts / voxel data. Built using python and creates lovely and unusual images

15:00 Rendering … how to make it look nice.

15:30 BlueRender, works with LDD – LEGO Digital Designer. Can leave areas grainny but works

16:20 Stud.io render – big button that says ‘render’

17:00 Stud.io – animation sequences. As move towards animation, takes longer to create and render.

18:00 POVRay – Persistence of Vision – grand daddy of LEGO renderers. Can be hard to configure and been superseded by other renderers. Still good for rendering from a command line and auto-center LEGO models – LP3… surprising hard to do.

19:30 Blender – comprehensive modelling and rendering package that you can do just about anything with. Can import LDraw models through a simple add-on.

20:00 Pumpkin – stud.io vs Blender Render

20:40 From Blender to Modo, Sketchup, Maya and Brickalo (renders piles of bricks) – http://www.brickalo.com/ . Once moved model out of LDraw into a standard format, then can move around lots of powerful standard 3D tools

21:00 LEGO and Unreal Engine – access to physics and collision engines

23:00 Instructions – need to have built a digital model. Make sure you build your physical model with the instructions you make before distributing. Flexible parts always a challenge

24:30 LPub3D – can include flexible part elements.

26:10 Links from presentation

27:30 Digital to Physical … very expensive and cost challenges

28:40 Mario and Yoshi – from 3D model to LEGO Voxel Pipeline – High level pipeline

34:00 Virtual Background and building with no gaps

35:00 LEGO Letters created from a Font – Merry Christmas

36:45 Brickalo.com – mixing bricks and plates digitally – surprisingly difficult. Computer building a pile of LEGO bricks were each piece is connected by at least 1 stud, frame the pile of bricks and create a nice render of it.

41:00 LDraw spatial arrangement

42:00 SNOT – Studs Not On Top in digital building

43:20 – Current & Future Projects. Extending letter building code to create logos out of LEGO that are self supporting, with holes and non-square designs. Investigating Unreal engine further due to the underlying physics engine

45:50 Machine Learning and its ability to understand LEGO shapes and studs. Give a machine a pile of LEGO bricks and put them together in away that works would be a challenge

48:00 If anyone out there knows about Machine Learning and wants to apply to LEGO, get in touch info@brickalo.com

49:00 – Autoframing/ Camera Centering of Models – really difficult to do. Looking for a scriptable tool to be able to do. If you know how to do, or the code, please drop a line info@brickalo.com

52:30 Robot Wars, working with kids in a teaching environment / Scout Groups

54:20 Iterations and design development … and then smash them up. Watching the evolutionary design process of kids designs

57:10 Tips for Rendering LEGO bricks in Blender. Add ldraw pluggin / addon, use import function. Environment background setting that turns everything pink. Remove the environment background. Soften shadows. Keep light setup simple.

1:06:00 Transferable skill development from working with digital LEGO – Python development.

1:08:30 Scripting and LEGO. Making it useable by others.

1:09:50 Rapid Fire Round – Favourite Set

1:10:50 Favourite Theme

1:11:30 Least Favourite Theme

1:12:40 Like Technic or Not

1:13:15 MOC that you are proud of: Hastings Peir. LEGO ideas website, which lead to radio appearance. LEGO models that people have relationships with.

1:14:45 How big a space for LEGO

1:15:35 How many LEGO pieces?

1:16:36 Any Theme you’d wish they’d bring back

1:17:55 Favourite LEGO build of the last year

1:18:50 Tron light cycle design by Syd Mead, who was the visual futurist / concept artist on Tron, also Blade Runner. Originally a Ford designer in the 1960s who recently passed away.

1:20:45 Favourite LEGO Resource

1:22:00 LEGO set you wish you bought but never did

1:23:20 AFOL Groups you are part of? London AFOLs

Transcript from the show:

G’day Everyone, Matt Elder of Family Bricks and in this video we wanted to take a moment to thank all the subscribers who recently helped the channel hit a milestone of 100 subscribers. Wha who!! I’ve created this custom 100 Subscribers LEGO Scenario MOC to acknowledge the support. Also in this video we’ll go over a few numbers in reaching 100 subscribers, as others might find it interesting … and I’m a bit of a data geek.

LEGO Scenario: 100 Subscribers

We’ll start off with the 100 Subscribers LEGO Scenario I’ve created. The motorized billboard has the Youtube play button logo and text for “100 Subs”. The action box has 100 nanofigures in pearl gold – 1 for each subscriber. I’ve then made a modification to the front display so it can have another message. In this case I’ve used a small 2 stud high font with the “Family Bricks Thanks You” message.

From a technical point of view, built this new drive unit so the whole thing runs off 1 motor, and at a speed that I’m more happy with. It also continues the idea of being hot swappable. I did originally have 2 motors but there was no stepping down of the motor speed here so went way too fast…. So all my nanofig subscribers were spinning around and getting really dizzy…. And we couldn’t have that.

Some Stats

So now might just run over some stats as to what 100 subscribers looks like. Family Bricks channel hit 100 subscribers on 12 March 2020. The channel was created 9th June 2019 but only really since January 2020 made a more concerted effort on the channel. This means about 2/3s the subscribers have come in the last 2 months.

Channel Name

100 subscribers also means you can have a more sensible Youtube name. So our new direct name is www.youtube.com/c/familybricks , rather than unwieldy one with random numbers and letters The channel has 42 videos with a total combined watch time of 103,000 minutes. That just does my head in. That is the equivalent of sitting down and watching our videos nonstop for 72 days.

Most Viewed

There are 9 videos with more than 1000 views, so 10x ing my subscriber count. So people are able to find the videos and engaging with the content. A LEGO Dots video has almost 5,000 views and LEGOLAND Dubai has almost 4,000 views. The LEGOLAND Dubai was an interesting one, when I first released it, for the first 2 months it did nothing. Then after Christmas 2019, it took off. You can never pick what will do well… and when. A lot of my most viewed videos are DOTs videos, which I don’t understand but I’ll take it. The How to Sort and Store LEGO also does really well … guess a lot of people have that problem and a lot of people watch all the way through the video.

Watch time is currently down I’m guessing due to coronavirus. But I do have a lot of lifestyle content about Legoland and birthday parties – both of which aren’t currently happening at the moment. Started to notice watch time is coming back a little now, after people have made the lockdown adjustment.

Where to from here?

The goal at the beginning of the year was to have 1,000 subscribers by the end of 2020 (which seemed crazy at the time with just 20 odd subscribers in 6 months). What sorts of videos would you viewers like to see? What don’t you like seeing?
