It may have started with a Big Bang but it's taken The Big Bang Theory eight seasons to finally become LEGO-ized.

LEGO has announced, through their LEGO Ideas brand, the development of a LEGO set based on the television series.

No Caption Provided

The main characters, along with Amy and Bernadette will be included in the set, rumored to be released as early as this summer. If you've watched the show, you know they spend a lot of time in the living room of Leonard and Sheldon's apartment. The set will reproduce the room.

Here's the info from the press release:

Indulge your inner genius and build this LEGO® version of Leonard and Sheldon’s living room as seen in the hit American sitcom The Big Bang Theory! This set was created by two LEGO fan designers— Alatariel from Sweden and Glen Bricker from the USA—and selected by LEGO Ideas members. Featuring loads of authentic details to satisfy all The Big Bang Theory devotees and including minifigures of all seven main characters from the show, it’s ideal for display or role-play fun. Includes 7 minifigures with assorted accessory elements: Leonard, Sheldon, Penny, Howard, Raj, Amy and Bernadette. $59.99

I have to admit, I'm tempted to get this.

Just seems like DC isn't big enough for LEGO when they make stuff like this in real bricks and pour in a bunch of real people into the LEGO themed games.

@jonny_anonymuos@saint_talker lego ideas seem like more of a limited run kinda deal, plus this show is one of the top viewed comedies right now. I bet it sells quickly.

@themantisshrimp: perhaps. I don't disagree with the shows popularity or Lego's credibility. This just seems to be a very mundane set, in my opinion.

It'll also be cool if they did a LEGO-ized BBT episode someday.

Howard looks nothing like he does in the show, the rest are pretty accurate though.

This is interesting and so... but come on. BIONICLE has just returned and since some of its books were published by DC at least I hoped the were given some attention.

Please someone make an article about it before summer sets.
