The Lego Group has revealed the 16 Simpsons mini-figures that will go on sale in the next wave of blind bags in May 2014, which will make them available at around the time the Lego episode of The Simpsons airs on May 4, 2014, at 8:00 PM (7:00 PM Central) on Fox.

In other news, The Hollywood Reporter notes that Warner Bros. will be cutting Village Roadshow Pictures out of The Lego Movie 2, the sequel to this year’s hit movie. Village Roadshow Pictures was Warner Bros. financing partner, ultimately underwriting 50% of the movie’s costs in return for an equal proportion of the profits (after Warners takes its studio fee). The movie has grossed approximately $393 million worldwide so far, with the recently greenlit sequel scheduled for 2017 and set to be helmed by Chris McKay (Robot Chicken).

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
