71016 The Kwik-E-Mart: The official announcement

LEGO The Simpsons 71016 The Kwik-E-Mart

One of the most anticipated boxes of the start of the year is finally unveiled with the official announcement of the 71016 The Kwik-E-Mart set.

Small clarification, I received many emails informing me that the visuals that leaked from the Yahoo cache which had the exclusivity of the announcement of this new box were already online on many sites, but I strives to respect the embargo imposed by LEGO, which explains this late upload.

All those who were concerned about the interior of the store managed by Apu rest assured: The level of detail is exceptional and the amount of accessories provided is impressive.

This set will be available for early sale for members of the VIP program from mid-April before going on sale for all customers of the LEGO Shop next May 1st.

Below, the official press release which details the content of the set and below the photo gallery which should convince you to offer you this box ...

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 (aka 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 (aka Jailbird).
