Doctor Who LEGO sets

created by nabii on 2011.12.15

Main Section
Sets based on the British Science Fiction TV show. The Doctor is a time travelling alien (a Timelord) who travels through time and space in his TARDIS - a time machine 'disguised' as a blue police telephone box.

There are many excellent Doctor Who projects here on Cuusoo. Any support I get for mine is wonderful, but to help convince LEGO of the desire for this or similar products and convince them to go for the license if you have time please vote for the other ideas you like too. Thank you.

Though I’ve tried I haven't found any way to make it bigger on the inside then the outside, but here’s a play set idea with both the interior and an exterior environment.

In the show The Doctor 'regenerates' when fatally wounded, allowing a new actor to take over the role (the current Doctor is the 11th) and his companions through time change regularly. With such a rich history the collectability of the sets would be massive and the number of settings throughout the whole of time and space is virtually endless. Next year the show celebrates 50 years since it was first broadcast. Can we celebrate with real LEGO sets?

The BBC have currently split the Doctor who license up so the current ‘Character Building’ construction sets are produced by the license holder ‘Character Options’ through sub-contract to ‘Cobi’ (a LEGO copying company) from Poland.

Hopefully if LEGO express an interest in the license either Character Options or the BBC themselves will switch the license/contract to The LEGO Company. It’s probably a pipedream, but the only way to find out is to get this project to the 10,000 supporters mark.

If you know anyone who would support real LEGO Doctor Who sets please get them to register and vote! Thank you.

Decision on Our Ability to Produce this Project

2012.08.09

Since our last comment, we have begun looking into the feasibility of license agreements earlier in a project's life cycle. Another Doctor Who project reached the 1,000 milestone, and at that point we decided that since another company has the construction toy license, we will not pursue this further as a potential LEGO IP. You may read our comments on that project as well.

This decision of course takes nothing away from the great models and presentation you have here--they're outstanding. We're sorry to disappoint.

Opening ourselves to new product suggestions invites popular ideas that don't always work. We are grateful for the spirit behind projects like the Doctor Who and for the opportunity to be challenged. It keeps us sharp and looking toward the future of the LEGO brick.

Congratulations on 1,000+ Supporters!

Dear nabii,

Congratulations on all of the supporters! This is a beautifully detailed rendition of the TARDIS from Doctor Who. Great idea, and it's clear from this project that a lot of people are interested in seeing us produce a Doctor Who set. We especially like the interior detail, and the Daleks!

Best of luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!

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.
