The existing Character Building Doctor Who range is rather nice—several of their Doctor figures and their TARDIS stand guard at the base of my monitor—and I hope they will continue to be produced as well, but there’s something about Lego that speaks quite directly to the nostalgic part of the brain. These will sell quite well, I imagine (and indeed, a glance at the prior Lego Ideas productions shows almost all of them to be sold out).
From the look of the fan-created concept art above, the focus seems (as ever these days) to be on new-Who with a cursory nod to Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor. I will, of course, gleefully snap up whatever set Doctor Who sets Lego produces, but I hope that demand for earlier Doctors and companions is sufficiently strong that we eventually get the entire cast.
Lego William Hartnell and Lego Maureen O’Brien, anyone?
