Hey there Hopperenos!
This time last year we announced the first invasion of LEGO Simpsons into the market. It hit with AMAZING Success. We were all sorts of giddy and happy about it too. So much so that we had a fun LEGO Contest on the site for our readers. Could this happen again? Well… you will just have to stay tuned to our site to see. 😉
In the meantime, I want to share all the cool info that My AMAZING friends at LEGO provided. Coming to a store near you in May 2015!
Something else really cool with this, The LEGO version of this infamous store will be physically unveiled for the first time at SXSW this weekend. Keep your eye out for the first-ever mobile Kwik-E-Mart Truck! (If one of you lucky readers can snag a really cool pic of you and the Kwik-E-Mart Truck, share it with us for a surprise. firstname.lastname@example.org 😉 )
The Kwik-E-Mart was one of the First locations to be dropped into our silly lil games with the Simpsons Home, so it seems pretty fitting that it follows the Simpsons Home in the LEGO World too.
There is just SO MUCH detail and items stuffed into this set, I will let the experts break it all down for you.

Visit The Kwik-E-Mart—Springfield’s favorite convenience store!
Welcome to The Kwik-E-Mart—your one-stop shop for convenience foods at inconvenient prices! This highly detailed and iconic LEGO® version of The Simpsons™ store is packed with more rich, colorful details than a Mr. Burns birthday cake has candles! Walk under the huge Kwik-E-Mart sign and join Homer, Marge and Bart as they browse the aisles filled with beauty products, diapers, dog food, pastries, fruits, vegetables and more—including Krusty-O’s and Chef Lonelyheart’s Soup for One. Then head over to the refrigerated cases where you’ll find Buzz Cola, chocolate milk, various other drinks and snacks… and frozen Jasper! There’s also a Buzz Cola soda fountain, juice dispensers, coffee machine, arcade games, ATM and stacks of Powersauce boxes. At the counter, Apu is ready to tempt you with a variety of printed magazines, comic books, cards, tofu hot dogs, freshly expired donuts and his ever-popular hallucination-inducing Squishees. At the back, there’s a storage closet complete with rat and an exit. On the roof you’ll discover Apu’s secret vegetable garden, while outside this amazing model features bright-yellow walls, 2 phone booths, a stack of purple crates, and a dumpster area with ‘El Barto’ graffiti, opening door and an iconic blue dumpster that also opens. You can also remove the roof and open out the rear walls for easy access. This set also includes Snake (a.k.a. Jailbird), who loves nothing more than stealing cars and robbing the Kwik-E-Mart—but this time Chief Wiggum is hot on his tail in his police car. Capture this bandit and return peace to the town of Springfield and the amazing Kwik-E-Mart. This fantastic set includes 6 minifigures with assorted accessory elements: Homer Simpson, Bart Simpson, Marge Simpson, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Chief Wiggum and Snake (a.k.a. Jailbird).
