There has been a lot of excitement in the last couple of days as LEGO has been teasing fans with partial pictures of the upcoming #21304 LEGO Ideas Doctor Who set on their Facebook page. And yesterday afternoon they finally posted all the details on the LEGO Ideas website! Below is the official announcement, pictures and details of the set. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Official announcement on the LEGO Ideas website: “You might have thought it disappeared into a crack in space and time, but today we’re excited to finally share pictures and details about the #21304 LEGO Ideas Doctor Who set!

You can buy yours December 1st, in time for the Doctor Who Christmas Special, for a recommended retail price of USD $59.99 / EUR โ‚ฌ59,99. You might want to keep an eye on that Weeping Angel though….”

Official product description: “Construct a stunningly detailed LEGO version of the iconic TARDIS and role-play the Doctorโ€™s time-travel adventures! Created by fan-designer Andrew Clark and selected by LEGO Ideas members, this set is based on the BBCโ€™s popular and long-running television series about a Time Lord โ€“ the Doctor โ€“ exploring the universe in a blue police box. Due to trans-dimensional engineering, the TARDIS is bigger on the inside than the outside and this cool multifunctional set includes the console room that houses all the flight controls. Regenerate the Doctor and defeat the evil Daleks and a Weeping Angel with the help of his extraordinary companion Clara. Then close the doors of the TARDIS and launch into another dimension! Includes 4 minifigures with assorted accessory elements: the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi), Clara Oswald and a Weeping Angel, plus 2 Daleks. 623 pieces. Price: $59.99. Release date: December 1st.

Interesting to note, that the #71204 LEGO Dimensions Doctor Who Level Pack includes a different Doctor, and the #71238 LEGO Dimensions Cyberman Fun Pack has a somewhat differently built Dalek. So if you are a Doctor Who fan you will have fun collecting all three sets.

Also, my understanding is that all those really nice designs on the LEGO Ideas Doctor Who sets are printed pieces. I’m not 100% positive about this yet, but so far all LEGO Ideas sets came with printed elements, so I really hope that LEGO will continue this tradition.

I think the set looks fantastic. Couldn’t have asked for better. It is also very close to the original design submitted by Andrew Clark to LEGO Ideas, which is nice to see. As mentioned above, the set will be available in December, so there is a bit of waiting we have to go through, but in the meantime you can also check out the other sets submitted by LEGO fans under the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.

So what do you think? How do you like the LEGO Ideas Doctor Who set? Is this going to be a first day purchase for you? (Which is probably a really good idea if you want this set, as I expect it to sell out very fast.) Or are you planning to pass on it? And what do you think of the set design and the minifigures?

At last, we have pictures! I think it’s cool, I like how the police box detaches and folds up. The Tardis looks good too, though I can’t really judge as I’m not sure how real one looks. It seems the Weeping Angel has two faces, and the second is rather angry, not sad. ๐Ÿ™‚
My favorite parts of the set are the minifigs’ leg prints: two colors and printed! Now if only LDD could update and let me do that too. ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ˜•

LDD has been pretty behind, isn’t it?

Oh, it is way behind. Not one update yet this year. I’m thinking they’re waiting until the end of the year to make one huge update that will take hours to install but will include all the new pieces. I will be counting, LEGO! I better find all 176 parts you invented this year on there! โ€ฆ 176 โ€ฆ Oiโ€ฆ. ๐Ÿ˜•

This reminds me of the set for Palpatine’s Arrest in some way. Really nice, they know exactly how to empty my wallet at the LEGO group. Not that I mind, more LEGO never was a bad thing.

Convenient! My son will love getting this for Christmas. And if I blow the big bucks in October to get the double VIP points and the promotional train, I won’t mind having a $50 leg up on a $99 purchase to get the Gingerbread House.

Yeah, perfect Christmas present! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m mad they didn’t include David Tennant (My username just to show my love), but I still need this. I love Doctor Who so much! Those Dimensions packs and that set WILL be mine…and no one can stop me!

I agree they should have done 10th Doctor (David Tennant) instead of the 12th Doctor (Peter Capaldi) even though the Tardis in this set is 11th and 12th Doctor’s Tardis

*Squeeee!!*

So excited, definitely want to pick this one up. Hopefully they make a whole theme of Doctor Who, I would most definitely buy it!

Yesss!!!! I have been waiting for this! And oh wow! The head on that cyberman is so great! I also like the dalek design Lego came up with, but I have one that uses less parts, so I can make an army of them. ๐Ÿ˜›

Makes sense to have both Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi in there, since that Tardis interior and Clara overlapped both of them. Previous Doctors/companions would require entirely different sets. Not that you couldn’t do that, but licensed toys like this tend to focus on the here and now of the show first and foremost.

So far only Minecraft has spun out of ideas into a full Lego theme, but hey, we can hope!

Lego sure is lucky that two thirds of their Ideas sets have seen them acquiring licenses for all these fan-favorite properties. Their inclusion in Dimensions is probably driving a large portion of the sales.

Yeah… I wish that they’d make doctor who a full theme! That’d be awesome….

SERIOUSLY? They already chose to include the 12th Doctor in Dimensions, and now they are including him again in this set, wearing the 11th Doctor’s series 7b suit! I am just saying, I have nothing against the actor, Peter Capaldi, but he just is not very good at playing the doctor. Why couldn’t they have included David Tennant? He is much more popular! Although I am happy they included Matt Smith!

In Websters, Does the listing for “Whovian”, have your picture right next to it?;-) Well done!

I guess maybe more people would be familiar with capaldi, if they just recently started watching the show, but I agree. Smith and Tennant were better. Capaldi is just too serious sometimes.
