Everyone remembers the episode where Homer Simpson famously landed in a dumpster, crossing over from Springfield to the real world. Well, Homer is jumping universes again on May 4 in an episode titled “Brick Like Me.”

In the 550th episode of the show, Homer wakes up in a world where his family and everyone in Springfield are made of Legos. Homer must figure out how to get back to his Springfield, or be stuck in LEGO Springfield forever. Doh!

Cue promotional tie in!

In conjunction with the episode, Lego will release a new series of The Simpsons minifigures. The 16-piece series of minifigures include Bart, Homer, Ralph, Nelson, Apu, and more. These characters will be available starting May 1 at major retailers, brick-and-mortar LEGO Stores and at lego.com for $3.99 each.

This release of figurines comes after a February release of a LEGO construction set of the Simpson’s unmistakable two-story home. The toy line coming in May will give fans an opportunity to enjoy the figurines without having to purchase the home, but come on, the house is pretty damn cool.
