Grab your bricks and build a Tardis worthy of a Time Lord. Lego Cuusoo, which previously banned fans from submitting ideas based on licensed properties, recently posted in the License Conflicts and Resolutions section of its Web site that there's no longer a conflict with the "Doctor Who" license.
"Sometimes we have to turn down project submissions that refer to specific brands or licensed properties," Lego Cuusoo said. "We do this to avoid getting your hopes up for something we know we aren't able to make. In these cases, we already know the Lego Group can't secure licensing rights to produce construction toys based on a particular brand or property, due to a conflicting interest with a third party. If such a conflict goes away, we'll then be able to accept projects based on a particular brand or license."
"If your project was previously turned down, archived, or deleted due to a licensing conflict that is now resolved, you may re-submit it as a new project. Supporters from past projects cannot be applied to a future project. We now welcome projects based on the following licenses that used to have conflicts: Doctor Who - February 2014."
Lego fans share their concepts on Lego Cuusoo for a chance at seeing them created. "Doctor Who" ideas have been regenerating onto the site, like this Doctor and his companion project that includes the Tardis, two minifigures of the Doctor, his companion, and his robot dog K9.
Now it's just up to the fans to vote new "Doctor Who" ideas into reality.
