It’s wonderful to have Doctor Who back on the air, and even better that those of us watching it on BBC America don’t have to wait weeks for it after it airs in the UK. This week’s episode wrapped up the season opener rather nicely, and this LEGO treatment by Legoagogo is rather nice as well.
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.
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.
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.)
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.
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.
I’m not entirely happy with Donna, the 10th Doctor’s most recent companion. I was kind of hoping Astrid Peth (played by a shockingly young-looking Kylie Minogue) would join The Doctor on his journeys through space and time, but that was not to be.
Anyway, that doesn’t detract from how cool I think Ochre Jelly‘s latest Miniland figures are, inspired by Doctor Who:
Yes, Donna’s screaming. What else would she be doing?
Hurray! Another all-in-one post inspired by a recent new LEGO creation!
The various Dr. Who TV series have inspired many builders recently, and since I only started to watch the most recent series on Sci-Fi this season, I had no idea what these builders were posting. Now I’m going to get caught up.
Here’s the most recent creation, the Doctor, his Tardis, and a Dalek by Flickr user Camera Wences:
