Not to outdo the earlier post of the LEGO Ideas Doctor Who (21304) set, LEGO Ideas has revealed the set over on their blog in which we can also see the cool box art for the set as well as the official description. Again, the set will be available on December 1st at a recommended retail price of $59.99 but we can expect Toys R Us to be a little higher than that.
Construct a stunningly detailed LEGO® version of the iconic TARDIS® and role-play the Doctor’s time-travel adventures! 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. 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! Includes 4 minifigures with assorted accessory elements: the Eleventh Doctor, the Twelfth Doctor, Clara Oswald and a Weeping Angel, plus 2 Daleks™.
The past couple of days, LEGO has been teasing fans with images of the upcoming LEGO Ideas Doctor Who (21304) set with a possibility of it being revealed very soon. We don’t have to wait for it because Hoth Bricks has an image of the official set which comes from the French LEGO catalog.
The set comes with 623 pieces and retails for $59.99 and will be available on December 1. It includes minifigures of the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) which is a different version from the LEGO Dimensions one, Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), a Weeping Angel, and two brick-built Daleks which are also different from the ones in the Dimensions Cyberman Fun Pack.
Update: Head over to the official announcement for more images of the set.
If you followed my coverage of San Diego Comic Con, you would know that there was a panel called DC Comics Meets LEGO Art which featured Nathan Sawaya as a guest. There he talked about his upcoming exhibition called The Art of the Brick: DC Comics and today Comic Book Resources has revealed the LEGO Batmobile that he has created for the exhibit. As you can see, it is a full-size Batmobile which was designed by Jim Lee at SDCC and was created with over 500,000 bricks in less than three months and is 18 foot long.
The tour for The Art of the Brick: DC Comics will open at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia on November 22.
LEGO has tweeted out another teaser image of the upcoming LEGO Ideas Doctor Who (21304) set. The image shows the inside console room of the TARDIS. It looks like we’re getting closer and closer to the reveal of the set, possibly around this weekend when New York Comic Con 2015 is going o.

Yesterday, I talked about some of the upcoming building events for October. Hoth Bricks has found a new Toys R Us building event for a mini LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens X-Wing Fighter. This event will be held on Saturday, November 14 from 12-2pm. This X-Wing is Poe Dameron’s version and is slightly different from previous X-Wings we’ve seen from Toys R Us. Mark your calendars because I expect this building event to be very popular ahead of the release of The Force Awakens in December.
The LEGO Ideas Facebook Page has posted another teaser with the caption “landing soon” for the LEGO Ideas Doctor Who (21304) set, this time with the TARDIS that we’ll be getting. I’m not sure if the caption means that LEGO will be officially revealing it or if it means that we’ll be seeing it in stores soon. Rumor has it that the set will be a November release which also coincides with the release of the LEGO Dimensions Doctor Who Level Pack (71204). If you look closely, the Police Box sign appears to be printed but it’s hard to tell if it’s printed or stickers. Also notice the hinges on the side which means the TARDIS will be able to open up to show some details of the control room.
