LEGO's got a new set for fans that will be unveiled at SXSW tomorrow: a replica of The Simpson's beloved Kwik-E-Mart, complete with coolers, a Squishee Machine and Springfield customers. Though the set will hit the market on May 1, SXSW guests will have a chance to see it tomorrow, AdWeek reports. The incredibly detailed, 2179-piece set has lots of intricate nuances (like Jasper stuck in the cooler) and comes with Kwik-E-Mart proprietor Apu Nahasapeemapetilon behind the counter; Homer, Bart and Marge; the bumbling Chief Wiggum; and the ever-lurking Snake.

The aisles are full of practical products, as well as Krusty-O's, Buzz Cola and Chef Lonelyheart's Soup for One, a LEGO release says. There's also a storage closet where a little rat lives, a secret rooftop vegetable garden, phone booths, a dumpster complete with graffiti from 'El Barto,' as well as Wiggum's cruiser with a trunk that opens up. All this measures just over 5 inches high and 14 inches wide. The price is $199.99.

Previously, LEGO released a Simpsons house construction set, as well as a series of Simpsons minifigures.

Of course, it's hard to compete with this LEGO Springfield built by Matt De Lanoy for last year's Brickworld in Chicago.
