Baddies:

Dalek:
A really simple design but I think they turned out quite well. These are obviously based on the most recent dalek incarnation.

Cybermen & weeping angels:
Really happy with how these turned out. the angels hair got more defintion than what shows up in the image.

The silence:
Has longer arms and legs than normal minifigures, with a printed alien head.


I will add more stuff later on, add your suggestions for characthers and sets in the comments.

The main set I'm proposing is the Tardis interior:
This set is split into 3 segments, The wall segment with the staircase, the entrance area with coathanger to store some of the doctors hats. And the main part of the set the controle panel platform and attached walkway.
This would benefit from being closer to the floor for playability.

Minifigures, 11th doctor, River Song, Amy & Rory

All minifigures and "decals" designed by me.

Decision on Our Ability to Produce this Project

2012.08.09

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.

The LEGO CUUSOO Team


Note: If your idea is selected, the LEGO Group will make the final decision on how your proposed product should be produced, the final design, applicable licenses, production run size, sales channels, etc. Please understand that our comments here do not have an effect on the LEGO Review that will take place if the project reaches 10,000 supporters.
