Nice model of the Tardis, which I think works well.

Still don’t really like the Daleks.

Nice Weeping Angel, I don’t think that the Peter Capaldi doctor has actually seen a Weeping Angel, but I may be wrong.

Looks like we will have Lego Doctor Who… very soon! This is the first official image of the new Doctor Who Lego.

Update: We now have the Tardis console as well….

This was a Lego Ideas submission which was approved to be a real product.

We already have Lego Dimensions Doctor Who as we found out in July. This is the video from that announcement.

It looks like from the video that you will be able to play all thirteen doctors in the game. In addition there are Daleks and Cybermen.

At the San Diego Comic-Con Lego released a new video of how Doctor Who (in Lego) will play out in their new Lego Dimensions video game.

The WIRED folks recreated that classic scene from Return of the Jedi in Lego (and a 1000 frames per second camera).

Well what do we have here, the Doctor in Lego.

Oh and K9 and a TARDIS.

Okay so not a proper set (just yet), but for the forthcoming Lego Dimensions console game.

The game uses “real” Lego which are then “brought” into the game. There is a real mix of brands, for example the starter set has Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle (from The Lego Movie).

You can expand the game with packs and these have so far included figures from the Lego franchises such as Ninjago, but also Wonder Woman, Lord of the Rings, Wizard of Oz and Back to the Future.

With the release of some instructions, we now know that there will also be an expansion pack for Doctor Who.

The copyright notice for Doctor Who is quite interesting as it includes details of Daleks and Cybermen.

From this I would ascertain that we will see Lego Daleks and Cybermen, very likely in the game, but could mean Lego Daleks if and when more Doctor Who Lego is released.  The BBC does not hold all the rights to all the Doctor Who monsters, therefore licensed products need to both licence Doctor Who from the BBC, but also need to licence Terry Nation (estate) for the Daleks.

In addition to Doctor Who we have also seen packs for Jurassic World, Scooby Doo, Portal and The Simpsons.
