LEGO® Ideas 21304 Doctor Who Set by Andrew Clark RRP £49.99 Due December 1st

Construct a stunningly detailed LEGO® version of the iconic TARDIS® and role-play the Doctor’s time-travel adventures!

Doctor-Who-lego-2

Created by fan-designer Andrew Clark and selected by LEGO Ideas members, this set is based on the BBC’s popular and long-running television series about a Time Lord – the Doctor – exploring the universe in a blue police box.


Due to trans-dimensional engineering, the TARDIS is bigger on the inside than the outside and this cool multifunctional set includes the console room that houses all the flight controls.

Doctor-Who-lego-1

Regenerate the Doctor and defeat the evil Daleks™ and a Weeping Angel with the help of his extraordinary companion Clara. Then close the doors of the TARDIS and launch into another dimension!
lego-5

Includes 4 minifigures with assorted accessory elements: the Eleventh Doctor, the Twelfth Doctor, Clara Oswald and a Weeping Angel, plus 2 Daleks™.

lego-7



Lego Dimensions…

Build the minifigure heroes and fire-up the game to start the experience, then follow the in-game build instructions to assemble the loose bricks into the LEGO Gateway, and place the structure on the LEGO Toy Pad.

uk-flag-small Available to buy in the UK from www.amazon.co.uk

usa-flag-small Available to buy in the USA from www.amazon.com

dimensions-add

Expand the adventure by collecting more minifigures, vehicles, gadgets, and new levels with the purchase of three different types of expansion packs. Use whatever minifigure with whichever vehicle or gadget – go ahead… break the rules!

    Overall I love the set and will get it when its released. I would have liked more interior walls like the CB one had, if it had come out.
    I hadn’t even noticed that the tardis exterior only had three panels until Andrew I pointed it out. Must admit it does bother me a little.
    I only hope that we will eventually get all the Dotors in minifig form at some point.

      The panels fold and close so it is a full tardis

      Also if it had full walls the price would be about thrice the cost of this design

      cyberdoctor42 I think by MORLU saying three panels they meant on the exterior with one being a window then below that the door sign, then a blank one below that, and there should be another blank one below that but there isn’t

    Everyone stop complaining about the time rotor. You can easily buy/find orange (What I call) Lightsaber blades and find orange discs for inside the rotor. And as for the Daleks just rebuild them. And as for no proper 12 then buy the LEGO Dimensions pack because if you do that you also get a K-9 and mini TARDIS like in Flatline. This is the best thing about LEGO. You can rebuild something if you don’t like it.

    This set has everything I could want from a Lego Doctor Who set. My favorite Doctor, the current Doctor, a companion that works with them both (the show itself has had greater anachronisms than the Eleventh Doctor traveling with Clara while wearing his tweed jacket), the TARDIS exterior and interior, and a small squadron of Daleks, with a bonus Weeping Angel thrown in to make it even more perfect.

    For all the people complaining about the Daleks, let’s just admit, we could have had worse. Personally I love them even though they’re not as detailed as CB. We could have gotten worse, I’ve built worse, but the key aspect about them is that you should be able to look at one and instantly say “that’s a Dalek.”

      I like the dalek design and i think anyone complaining about them looking terrible has never actually experienced the sheer frustration of trying to build a dalek out of Lego. They obviously aren’t going to be as detailed as the character building ones because the are made from pieces specifically made to be a sections of daleks, whereas Lego have always preferred to build things out of preexisting bricks, which is something that i agree with as i feel that sculpted things just don’t fit in very well with the general aesthetic of Lego.

    • yognot

      October 9th, 2015 - 8:58pm

      As long as it looks like a Dalek, I’m okay with it. I think we can all agree that it is very difficult making a Dalek out of Lego without cutting or gluing the pieces. That and Lego Ideas has this thing where they’re only allowed to use preexsisting bricks. And technically Capaldi’s hair piece and the sonic screwdriver have already been released in Lego dimensions.

    I’m slightly bothered that the TARDIS only has three panels on the sides instead of four…. but I’ll get over it. So so sooooo pleased Lego and the BBC finally teamed up and are getting this product to the market! It was so long coming. Really, it would have made sense to do this when Tennant was the Doctor as I think it had greatest younger audience appeal then, in the height of the Doctor Who is back craze – still, now and late is much better than never!

    Will definitely be buying this and hankering for more!!

    I’m looking forward to this, the set looks good and I love the way the exterior of the Tardis opens to become the doorway of the interior! My only complaints are the same as a lot of other people’s, them being that the Daleks are far from perfect, and I’d have loved to get a Series 7b outfit for 11, and regular outfit for 12. Oh, and it would’ve been awesome to have gotten some pieces that could allow us to change the Tardis to the 12th Doctors.

    • cyberdoctor42

      October 8th, 2015 - 8:33am

      They. Are. Brick. Built. They aren’t going to look like the specifically sculpted character building daleks because these are made with only existing Lego pieces. Personally i prefer this design over the character building design because i prefer brick built over molded pieces because you can make a special weapons dalek or a dalek emperor out of the bricks you already have. If you dislike this design rebuild it. You are supplied with the needed printed piece so go ahead, see if you can do better and still keep the scale accurate.

    • anon

      October 8th, 2015 - 12:12pm

      Cyberdoctor42, anon is just stating an honest opinion, and in all fairness, the Daleks SHOULD have a close resemblence to the on screen ones.

      Being made of lego, it just looks as though they took a bunch of spare lego bricks and thought “oh, this will do”.

      At least CB looked like proper Daleks!

      Tell you what, you think the design is that good, id like to see you make a decent-looking lego Dalek, without it looking like a big mess!

      Rant over!

      Anon, what are you talking about? ‘if you think the design is that good, id like to see you make a decent-looking Lego dalek without it looking like a big mess’ the daleks in this set look decent in my opinion which is why i feel that people complaining ‘oh I’m going to have to use something I already have because I need realistically proportioned daleks alongside my short and stocky minifigures and can’t be bothered to make some myself’ is just silly. It’s Lego, Lego isn’t proportionate.

  • Sam Richard Bentley

    October 7th, 2015 - 1:22pm

    I think one thing people have to understand is this set is specifically based on the Ideas design. The reason is doesn’t have more walls? Because the original didn’t have walls.

    What LEGO do with winning Ideas is they re-make them they’re own way, but keep the initial design as is. Clark’s TARDIS didn’t have walls, and thus this one doesn’t.

    Here’s hoping for more sets that /aren’t/ part of the Ideas range – which this specific set is. Personally I am hoping for a Classic TARDIS with Doctor’s 1-7 as minifigures. (I know it’s not the same set for the first 26 years, but they look similar enough to be sold as one LEGO set)

      That’s one of the greatest things about LEGO – there’s always a piece for something. You can add onto things, or create them differently. That goes for Minifigs as well – much easier to make Minifig customs with LEGO than, say Character Building, for example.

    I must say – I am quite surprised this does not include orange versions of the blue transparent bricks.

    I mean – the Back to the Future set came with lots of bricks so you could add the to the car to change it to fit one of the three films. So, one would think they could include a small bag full of orange alternatives to the blue, so it could be both variants we have seen of this console.

    Nonetheless – looks great. I might hold out on it, see if they release anything classic.

    Overall I like it. Was expecting the price to be around what it is, normally is this for Lego ideas sets. It looks like a really fun set and a good build.I actually like the minifigures, yeah the daleks don’t look as detailed as CB but they still look fun, that really is the key word for Lego. Yeah it’s a bit disappointing about the twelfth doctor costume but I’ll buy the Lego dimensions packs and I expect we will see more from Lego Doctor Who anyway. I mean it’s a big part of Lego dimensions and classic doctors are playable in the game so I imagine it’s safe to say we’ll see them released sooner or later. I am expecting this to be much more solid than the CB sets, they just fell apart so easily, I was worried about playing with them.

    -missy with umbrella and phone like weapon thing

    -red supreme dalek( again, not sure how, but it would be cool)

      Its a 11th regeneration, this way its a reasonable way to add both doctors in one set and we can then go out and get the dimensions figure and have 2 variants. People would complain if there was 2 of the same 12th doctors available n would get the cheaper option, & the ideas set would lose sales
