So, there I was just bouncing through the web. A little bored, and definitely ready for the weekend when I came across Geeks of Doom. Definitely worth checking out, right? There I found the post that made my day. (Maybe even my week. It’s been a little rough.) LEGO CUUSOO is accepting fan submissions for Doctor Who LEGOs. Yip-eee!
What’s the big deal, you ask? Well, back when I discovered this nifty little site, I poked around to see if I could find any Doctor Who sets, because…just because. When I searched for Doctor Who I found the following message.
Sometimes we have to turn down project submissions that refer to specific brands or licensed properties. We do this to avoid getting your hopes up for something we know we aren’t able to make. In these cases, we already know the LEGO Group can’t secure licensing rights to produce construction toys based on a particular brand or property, due to a conflicting interest with a third party. If such a conflict goes away, we’ll then be able to accept projects based on a particular brand or license.
Bummer. That is just no fun at all. The licensing conflict has been resolved, and the floor is open for submissions. When I searched the site today, I find 29 submitted projects. Most of these have gone up in the last 5 hours. Yes, please. Do you know what that makes me?
Yes, indeed. This makes me happy. Also, this may be my official Friday afternoon song…Whovians the world over are one step closer to getting the Doctor Who Lego sets they’ve been clamoring for. Personally, I’m glad someone will give me directions for making the inside of the TARDIS…I wasn’t doing so well on my own.
‘Til next time,
