Decision on Our Ability to Produce this Project
First and foremost, congratulations on the over 1,100 supporters for this project on LEGO® CUUSOO! Your Dr. Who models are incredibly detailed and have a lot of character.
We know Dr. Who is experiencing a popular resurgence, and these concepts would make great LEGO products. Our team has looked into the licensing potential and another company has the construction toy license we will not consider Dr. Who further. We see how enthusiastic and hopeful Dr. Who fans are at the possibility of a LEGO line and are sorry to be the bearers of this disappointing news.
The challenge with allowing IP-related projects on LEGO CUUSOO is that there is the potential of such a conflict, either with an existing license or with a competitive licensor. Still, it's our view that it is better to be open and allow for possibilities, knowing there will be "no" answers along the way, than shut out the potential of IP-based products altogether.
We have chosen to archive this project now since we know it is not feasible. There are too many projects to check each in-depth for license conflicts when they are first submitted, so instead we're looking deeper at projects that start to gain momentum.
Opening ourselves to new product suggestions invites popular ideas that don't always work. We are grateful for the spirit behind projects like the Dr. Who and for the opportunity to be challenged. It keeps us sharp and looking toward the future of the LEGO brick.
