More LEGO Doctor Who news & updates

If you are a regular reader here you probably remember that a few weeks ago a LEGO Doctor Who related project made it to 10,000 public votes at LEGO CUUSOO (see: LEGO CUUSOO Doctor Who & The Big Bang). This means that the project will be considered by the LEGO review team for possible future production as an official LEGO set. Since then another LEGO Doctor Who related project made it to 10,000 votes. This one is by Andrew Clark. So let’s take a look. 🙂

LEGO Doctor Who by Andrew Clark

In many ways Andrew’s idea is quite similar to the previous LEGO Doctor Who project including the iconic scenes and characters from the TV show. Andrew did spend more time though on designing the set, as well as choosing the minifigures, so they all come together as an actual viable LEGO set at just over 500 pieces. Andrew also thought about the box design and gave some ideas on how he envisions it. Below are the details and you can read more on the project’s LEGO CUUSOO page.

LEGO Doctor Who by Andrew Clark 2

The iconic Tardis sits where it all began, Totters Lane. The scene is a typical London street, with brick wall/fencing and lamp-post with Totters Lane sign. The Doctor and his companion stand outside with K9, ready for adventures. The Tardis opens up to become the inner Tardis walls and can be placed next to the console where the Doctor controls their journey through time. The set would include: the Tardis with exterior/interior walls, the interior console (LEGO designers can choose if they want the full console with tilt damage or just the top part), street/interior base, K9 (18 elements), 1 red or gray Dalek (25 elements).

Suggested minifigs are 1 or possibly 2 Doctors (for older and younger fans), and a companion (Rose Tyler if Tennant is chosen as the Doctor, or Clara Oswald if Capaldi is chosen). A Weeping Angel and a Cyberman can also be included. All minifigs would have dual-sided heads with different facial expressions. A LEGO sound-brick with the iconic Tardis sound could also be added.

Andrew also mentions that due to the nature of his design LEGO Doctor Who fans may buy 2 sets; one to have the Tardis on the street scene, and another to have the Tardis unfolded to become the inner walls placed next to console. Total part count including minifigs is around 530 (less if just the top of the console is chosen).

Andrew also thought about the box-design and felt that Doctor Who fans may geek-out if the box was a front view photo (or render) of the iconic LEGO Tardis. The top left window could be the LEGO logo, and below that the white rectangle could have text saying the set number, part count, etc. The box doors could open showing photos of the set. Andrew believes that this design would appeal more to Doctor Who fans, stand out on store shelves, and make the set more unique and collectible. He also suggests that a small pamphlet could be included with details on Doctor Who and the history behind the show.

I’m actually pretty sure that LEGO is going to choose a Doctor Who project as the next LEGO CUUSOO set. Two ideas based on Doctor Who reached 10,000 votes very quickly, indicating strong support and demand. The question is, which design will LEGO choose? While we are waiting to find out, you can check out the currently available LEGO CUUSOO sets at the Online LEGO Shop.


So what do you think? Which LEGO Doctor Who project do you like more? Would you buy either of them? Which do you think LEGO will choose? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉

    i really hope they make these! i would buy them for sure but im sure they would sell out super fast if they did become i set! 🙂

    • admin April 18, 2014, 11:53 AM

      I agree that these will sell out very fast! All CUUSOO sets tend to disappear soon after they get released, and this one is definitely going to be no exception. 😛

    • ninja of stealth April 18, 2014, 12:14 PM

      yeah it will probably sell out very fast like the Back to the future set did when I was trying to buy it. also I’m not a fan of doctor who but this set is AWESOME!!! 😎 thumbs up!

      • Lloydguy April 18, 2014, 1:36 PM

        I am not a fan either but my aunt and uncle are. I have to say that I like this version better than the other.

  • Strider April 18, 2014, 11:12 AM

    “For older and younger fans…” I may be a TFOL but Jon Pertwee is my third favorite Doctor ;). All this does is make me want to watch Classic Who…, rather then spend my hours waiting. I hope 12 and Clara are chosen, though I do hope that the first project we talked about will come out first. I feel like that one has more potential to it for future mini designs, while this one is more of a complete set. After buying someone else’s Lego Doctor, I will never have the experience of making my own one again-kind of sad, but worth it.

    • admin April 18, 2014, 11:56 AM

      Strider, you just have to build your own before one of these get approved. It will take a while so you have some months to work on it. You bring up an interesting point about the first model vs. this one. This one you buy two and you have everything. With the first one LEGO can add other sets in the future like they did with Minecraft. Good point. I wonder which direction LEGO will go…

      • Strider April 18, 2014, 6:03 PM

        Oh, I have built many, and it won’t be a big deal. Whatever happens, I just hope this is an eye opener to the Lego group about the potential in a line like this…

        • admin April 18, 2014, 9:51 PM

          I’m really curious of which one they choose, but I’m almost 100% sure there will be a Doctor Who set no matter what. And although I didn’t mention that in the article, there is a potential of even more Doctor Who projects to make it to 10,000 votes before the next review period. 🙂

        • TheChosenMinifigure April 29, 2014, 11:45 PM

          Well, whatever they choose you can still make your own for the other 10 doctors plus the war doctor

  • Strider April 18, 2014, 11:13 AM

    And I will buy these the day they are available…just saying…

  • Bohrok Tru April 18, 2014, 11:45 AM

    I’ve never actually seen an episode of Docter-Who, due to where I live, but the set looks cool, I hope lego makes this the next set!

    • admin April 18, 2014, 11:56 AM

      I never watched Doctor Who either, but I do like the set.

      • Lloydguy April 18, 2014, 1:38 PM

        Same here 🙂

  • ninja of stealth April 18, 2014, 2:12 PM

    hey guys, now I know this is a little off subject but remember on a few posts ago we were talking about the new star wars sets for summer and how there wasn’t any pictures for any microfighters? well I just found one when I was looking at the new summer sets on Google. it the stealth star fighter, I don’t know if you guys already knew about that but if you didn’t then, Tada! its really cool! you can even fit a droid in it and it comes with Jek-14!

    • Nicknak April 18, 2014, 2:58 PM

      Sorry to disappoint you, but if this is the one you’re talking about: http://thebrickblogger.com/2013/08/san-diego-comic-con-lego-exclusive-sets/ , then it is not an official retail set, just an exclusive that none of us will ever have.

      • Håkan April 21, 2014, 9:11 AM

        The constructions and parts-list are available scanned on Tormentalous’ Flickr. It seems to be pretty basic, parts-wise, and quite affordable if you’d go through Bricklink or Rebrickable. The Jek-14 minifig is officially available.

        Then, I’m not really a collector, but more interested in the looks of the builds.

  • ninja of stealth April 18, 2014, 7:58 PM

    aw man! I totally forgot about that post! well, thank you anyway Nicknak

    • Lloydguy April 18, 2014, 9:15 PM

      I wanted that so much 🙁

  • Beardless Dwarf April 21, 2014, 11:35 AM

    Looks good! I don’t watch nearly as much DW as I used to but I have a friend who’s obsessed and she would buy these in a heartbeat. The Tom Baker scarf though….I would want that.
