    Doctor Who And Companions

    created by AndrewClark2 on 2014.02.26

    Main Section
    Whovians unite! LEGO Cuusoo will now consider LEGO Doctor Who ideas.

    More LEGO photos of my set will be posted on my website HERE

    You Tube video showing Tardis unfold and interior HERE

    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 includes:

    Tardis, exterior / interior walls.
    (LEGO if you don't want to use the frame and "glass" part of my Tardis design that's ok)
    Interior console ( LEGO can choose if they want the full, console and tilt damage )
    street/Interior base.
    K9 (18 parts)
    1 Dalek red, or gray (25 parts) (assuming Lego can get the license)

    Minifigs (most have dual printed face, happy and shocked )
    1 and possibly 2 Doctors. An older and more recent Doctor, so older and younger fans have a Doctor.
    For the more recent Doctor, I propose Tennant, or maybe Capaldi, who is the latest incarnation. For the other I propose the 4th Doctor Tom Baker, and possibly Sara Jane as his companion. I am open for LEGO to choose the Doctor/s

    2 Companions (Rose Tyler if Tennant is chosen, or Clara Oswald if Capaldi is chosen.

    (Possiblility of 1) Weeping Angel (Face printed on both sides)
    (Possiblility of 1) Cyberman
    If LEGO likes the idea, a sound brick for the iconic Tardis sound.

    Due to the nature of the set 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 around 530 (less if just the top of the console is chosen)

    LEGO I will supply you with the Ldd file. If you choose this I am open to you, and fans choosing which Doctor/s. And choosing if you want only certain parts of the design/ Minifigures.

    Be warned which way you turn, sometimes, it's a choice between becoming a rock and a hard place, as the Weeping Angel may turn you to stone, or the Dalek exterminate you!

    Figures have dual sided printed facial expressions.

    Tom's scarf works with an existing LEGO part, but with a scarf printed on it. The shade and cloth folds, and waviness details are built into the printed color. The scarf being a part is also removable.

    BOX ART:
    I think 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. I think this would appeal more to Who fans, stand out on store shelves, and make the set more unique and collectible. LEGO did a similar thing with the 4x4 Crawler Exclusive Edition. The set could have a small pamphlet with details on Doctor Who and it's history.

    Thank you for your support, and consideration.

    Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, AndrewClark2!

    2014.04.07

    Dear AndrewClark2,

    Old and new Doctor Who fans can now rejoice that this project has reached 10,000 supporters!

    You've done a great job converting the adventures through time and space, which all started in that junkyard on Totters Lane, into LEGO form for fans everywhere to enjoy. This project includes a number of popular adversaries for the doctor and his companions to contend with, but with K-9 and the sonic screwdriver, they don’t stand a chance! 

    We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.

    What happens now?
    This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A "LEGO Review Board" composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We'll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product. This includes factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.

    The LEGO Review Begins in May
    This project qualifies for the Second 2014 Review beginning in May and ending in September. For more information about the LEGO review process, see this knowledge base article.

    The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the Doctor Who and Companions concept.

    When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.

    We will post follow-up information and our decision here.

    Congratulations on 5,000 Supporters!

    Don't blink when looking at this project. Not only could it suddenly leap up in supporters while you're blinking (5,000+ in less than a month, brilliant!), the Angel might just send you back in time. After all, that which holds the image of an Angel becomes itself an Angel. On top of that, you still have a Dalek and Cyberman to contend with. This project has something for every Who fan!

    Good luck defending time and space, and of course journeying to 10,000 supporters!

    Congratulations on 1,000+ Supporters!

    With the speed of a Tardis in flight this Doctor Who and Companions project flew past 1,000 supporters. The choice of which Doctors and companions the set should include are still up for grabs on this one. Great work!

    Good luck exterminating the support button by reaching 10,000!

    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.
