It feels like LEGO is partnering with everyone these days. If you go to LEGO’s website, you’ll find LEGO versions of Lord of the Rings, Batman, Iron Man, Harry Potter, Sponge Bob, Toy Story, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars and many more. But there’s one franchise that’s sorely missed, the BBC’s Doctor Who. Even though the popular British TV series debuted in the 1960s and has released almost 800+ episodes to date, it still has not been officially LEGOfied.
Fans Create A LEGO Version Of Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver
Just because LEGO and the BBC aren’t interested in making LEGO Doctor Who toys, doesn’t mean the fans are going to wait.
Although it’s kind of a grey market, you can find plenty of custom LEGO Doctor Who fan creations online on sites like eBay. Some of our favorite LEGO Doctor Who creations include the LEGO Dalek and LEGO Tardis. And LEGO artists, like Bruce Lowell, are creating Doctor Who projects like LEGO Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver (pictured below), that are so good that they look official.
Should LEGO And Doctor Who Partner?
What do you think about Bruce Lowell’s LEGO version of Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver? Should LEGO and the BBC get together for Doctor Who? Post some comments below. Maybe they’ll read this post.
UPDATE: In April 2015, the BBC announced that they had partnered with LEGO to create official Doctor Who LEGO sets. You can now find official LEGO Doctor Who products on sites like Amazon. Unofficial LEGO Doctor Who fan creations can still be found on eBay.
