The Doctor Who project by GlenBricker and Kaminoan is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. It’s only been a little over two weeks since LEGO announced that they started accepting Doctor Who theme projects on the site and this project just shot up in the number of supporters.
The project suggests 5 minifigures, K-9, and 3 brick-built Daleks. The set itself would consist of the TARDIS Police Box and the TARDIS Console. Keep in mind that LEGO has given a warning to prioritize the minifigures or they have the liberty to choose from a list of suggested options. No doubt the demand for an official LEGO Doctor Who set is there. Now we just have to wait for the first review period to see if it passes LEGO’s criteria of becoming an official set.
It joins the LEGO Bird Project, the Modular Apple Store, and the BTTF – Jules Verne Train so far as the sets in the running during the first review stage. In a fast-moving surprise, The Big Bang Theory now becomes the highest supported project on CUUSOO. The official LEGO comments will be posted as soon as they become available.
Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, GlenBricker and Kaminoan!
Congratulations, GlenBricker and Kaminoan on reaching 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO!
You’ve presented a very nice TARDIS exterior and interior playset, and an assortment of characters from which to choose. We’re looking forward to considering this project in the LEGO Review, but for now excuse us while we go make an electroshock device … just in case this really IS a Nestene plot to take over the world via a toy factory!
We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.
What happens now?
This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A “LEGO Review Board” composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We’ll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product. This includes factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.
The LEGO Review Begins in May
This project qualifies for the Second 2014 Review beginning in May and ending in September. For more information about the LEGO review process, see this knowledge base article.
The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a “go/no go” decision to develop and sell a product based on the Doctor Who concept.
When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.
We will post follow-up information and our decision here.
