Fox has revealed the first look at the upcoming LEGO episode of The Simpsons.

The shot, posted on the The Simpsons Facebook page, sees Homer standing in a world of bricks, confronted by a LEGO version of his dear Marge.

The episode, titled Brick Like Me, sees Homer have to choose whether to live in the real world or a LEGO universe and is the most expensive Simpsons episode ever created.

"We've literally been at this thing for two years - twice the time it takes to do one of our regular episodes - and that's way too long for comedy people to live with the same jokes," Matt Selman, the executive producer in charge of the episode, told TV Guide Magazine.

"It's been an epic process. First, we had to convince [executive producer] Jim Brooks and our showrunner, Al Jean, that a LEGO episode was a great idea and not just an excuse for our staff of nerds who grew up in the 70s to crack LEGO jokes. There needed to be a real emotional story there."

Brick Like Me, the 550th episode in the show's history, will air in the US on May 4th.
