The fact that LEGO doesn’t make official Doctor Who sets doesn’t stop LEGO builders from creating their own custom models of the TARDIS and the many iconic scenes and characters from the venerable series.

Just to prove that there are indeed much more interesting potential licenses LEGO could pursue (notwithstanding the existing Character Building sets), here’s a scene from Doctor Who built by Connor H.

Connor uses forced perspective in the background, and the photo’s lighting is consistent with some very blue artwork by Tim Doyle.

(It’s not the best LEGO TARDIS I’ve seen, but I’d rather have a nicely evocative Doctor Who scene at the top of the page than Homer’s stupid bald head.)

50 years of Doctor Who, 1 very tall LEGO staircase to the clouds

Growing up in Asia, the classic Doctor Who was never available to me, so I only got into the show around 2005 here in the States, with the Ninth Doctor. Nevertheless, I’m excited about the 50th anniversary of the show this year. But not as excited as Thorsten Bonsch (Xenomurphy), who promises 11 LEGO models over the next several months, each inspired by the incarnations of the Doctor since 1963.

Thorsten starts off with the most recent Doctor, and in fact the most recent Doctor Who episode — the Christmas special titled simply “The Snowmen.”

I think Iain put it best: “Longest. Post. Ever.

TARDIS Console Room from Doctor Who

I’ve seen many brick renders of the TARDIS from Doctor Who, but I’ve never seen the interior built with Lego until Mr. Xenomurphy presented his latest creation. You don’t have to be a fan of the TV show to appreciate the striking architectural design with its intricate details and working lights. Check out the gallery on MOCpages for more photos including construction shots.

Yes yes, it’s the 11th Doctor, but what about Captain Jack?

I’ve been enjoying the recent Doctor Who for several years now, but I actually preferred Torchwood. Regardless, I’m looking forward to the next incarnation of the Doctor — the 11th — here portrayed in LEGO, complete with a TARDIS, by Mark Stafford (lego_nabii):

Doctor Who visits BrickCon 2009

Through a fortunate series of events, Alan McMorran was in Seattle last weekend and dropped by BrickCon for a day. When he wasn’t hanging out with the zombie overlords, he was taking a really cool set of pictures featuring his Doctor Who minifig and LEGO TARDIS.

LEGO Doctor Who vs. Dragon

Here, the good Doctor manages to avoid Josh’s motorized dragon in a cave, part of a massive LEGO Castle display with a 2,000-minifig battle.

Check out all of Alan’s Doctor Who adventure photos on Flickr.

(And in case you’ve missed it, I’ve updated my BrickCon 2009 wrap-up post with more links.)

Next stop: Everywhere!

Alan McMorran has been working on a LEGO TARDIS and the 10th Doctor (“Doctor Who?” you ask. Exactly…) for a while now, and this his latest version is definitely my favorite.

Note the venerable LEGO pieces Alan’s used in the TARDIS — perfect for an ancient device that’s seen many years and many miles.

Exterminate! Kill the doctor!

Steven Locke (legoavon) presents a work-in-progress Dalek and Davros which are already by far the best I’ve seen at their size (Steven has also built bigger ones which are possibly better). His part use is breathtaking. I invite every sci-fi lover to browse Steve’s folders as he is an incredibly talented builder.
