"Doctor Who" steps into the Lego limelight with a new set featuring the TARDIS and some popular villains.
Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi are now immortalized in official Lego form with the release of the "Who" set on December 1. It includes two Doctors, one companion, a pair of Daleks and a super-creepy Weeping Angel.
Lego's upcoming "Doctor Who" set features a famous new-"Who" villain, one of the Weeping Angels. The Lego version is almost as creepy as the ones on TV. It has wide wings and a sharp-toothed face that looks like it wants to suck you out of time.
The TARDIS box included in the official "Doctor Who" Lego set folds up to travel through time and space. It can then reopen to sit next to the console room. The clever design for the set means the TARDIS is, indeed, bigger on the inside.
The TARDIS that comes with the new Lego "Doctor Who" set can sit next to the console room or it can close up and carry the Doctor off on a space-time adventure. The dual nature of the design gives the set a lot of flexibility.
Soon you will be able to create your own regeneration scene between the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors with an official Lego set. Up the stakes by having them battle a pair of Daleks and a Weeping Angel in the process. The set will be released on December 1, just in time for this year's holiday-special episode with Peter Capaldi.
Lego Ideas contributor Andrew Clark designed the original concept for the set Lego is producing. His design received support from 10,000 other Lego enthusiasts. It was a more extensive set than the final production model, including K-9, the Fourth Doctor and a Cyberman.
Lego's new "Doctor Who" set got its start with a design created by fan Andrew Clark for the Lego Ideas site. It attracted plenty of support and formed the basis for the official set.
