In this section we help promote LEGO Cuusoo idea’s to help them reach the 10,000 likes needed for their idea to get created! This week we feature the idea called Doctor Who created by GlenBricker. Here’s what the creator had to say about the idea:

Cuusoo of the Week : Doctor Who

Allons-y! Welcome to the fan campaign for Lego Doctor Who!

NOTE: This is NOT a Nestene plot to take over the world…why would you think that…

I am surprised that Lego didn’t lock down a license for Doctor Who the moment the License became available (or did they?), but here we are now.

Point is Doctor Who fits in every theme Lego has ever produced. It is like the grand unification theory. City, Castle, Space, Miners, Agents, Underwater, even Chima if you go back to some of the older episodes…well, ok, so The Doctor would look a bit weird in Friends, but even then, he is visiting some strange Alien species…

So, please cast your vote to show Lego you want an Official Doctor Who Lego Set.

Our Set Proposal:
As stated, Doctor Who pairs well with any existing Lego theme. So what we are looking for in a set are the elements that are harder to organize and come by. A few parts that have not been molded in the right colors, and of course a few figures.

Just enough content to drop the TARDIS, the TARDIS console, the Doctor, and his Companions into a build for a little flavor, and a few trouble makers to stir the pot.

We are suggesting 5-7 Minifigures, K-9, and 3 Brick Built Daleks for characters. For setting elements we are suggesting the TARDIS external (Police Box) and the TARDIS Console.

Remember how in “The Year that Never Was” Martha goes around the world telling everyone about the Doctor…and it is critical to saving everything! Well, You are Martha in this scenario. Vote for the project of course, and Vote for your favorite characters in our poll (see bellow) but most importantly, Spread the Word!!! Tell every Whovian. The faster this gets to 10,000 the more likely Lego will produce it.

This project is a collaboration with Kaminoan.

Bottom Left: TARDIS with ALTERNATE Tiles that can be swapped out for a “Bad Wolf” Tardis.
Bottom Right: TARDIS Console based on late Matt Smith run and likely early Peter Capaldi)

We want your feedback on which characters to include in our proposal to Lego and The BBC.

As any true fan of Doctor Who knows, he has two hearts, and the show itself is about a being that is willing to sacrifice himself for the good of everyone. We therefore feel that we must give back as part of this project.

If this project gets produced, Kaminoan and I will receive a small percentage of the profits of the product sales. Kaminoan and I hereby pledge 50% of any funds we receive from the production of this project to the American Heart Association.

Upper Right: Examples of brick built Daleks.
Lower Right: K-9

We have pictured above two different examples of TARDIS consoles but only one console will be in the set. The two provided examples are to give you a good idea of what a Lego design for these might look like. I assume the BBC Licensing will lean heavily to the most recent design.
