Quick! The highly anticipated 21304 Doctor Who set is now available for purchase on the Australian online store.
Head over to http://shop.lego.com/en-AU/Doctor-Who-21304 to grab your set. There is a limit of one per person so hopefully it won’t sell out too quickly.
Today is an exciting day for fans of the LEGO Dimensions game. The second wave of packs officially go on sale in Australia today.
The second wave features the highly anticipated Doctor Who Level pack, which is likely to be popular even with people who don’t have the game. As well as the Doctor there is also a Ninjago team pack, two Simpsons Fun Packs and a Unikitty Fun Pack.
Update: WB Games have sent through some screenshots so you can check out all of the Doctors in more detail.
We’ve prepared a list of the various products in this wave below.

Not all retailers have the sets listed in a catalogue or their website. In those instances the prices listed are based on prices for the same pack type.
It looks like the product page for 21304 Doctor Who has just gone live.
The page confirms that the Australian RRP for the set is $79.99.
With the Australian dollar the way it is at the moment that price seems pretty good.
The page also confirms the December 1st release date.
Thanks to Daniel for letting us know the page was up.
After sneak peeks and a leaked picture earlier today, LEGO have officially unveiled the LEGO Ideas Doctor Who set.
According to the LEGO Ideas blog post this set will be released on December 1st, in time for the Doctor Who Christmas Special, for a recommended retail price of USD $59.99 / EUR €59,99. Based on that pricing the Australian price is likely to be around $89.99 considering it has three minifigures, the DALEKs and a Weeping Angel. That price would match The Big Bang Theory which also has a USD RRP of $59.99.
Here is the official set description:
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™.
This set looks absolutely fantastic and is likely to be a huge hit. Once we have Australian pricing we’ll be sure to share it.
Additional images below.
We got a glimpse of the TARDIS exterior yesterday and today we are taking a look at the inside. LEGO have released this picture of the console that will be part of the set. So far this set looks great inside and out. Hopefully we get an official announcement soon.

The Doctor Who Facebook page has just shared this image of the Doctor Who LEGO Ideas set (click on the image for a larger version).
We’ve already seen the Doctor’s appearance in LEGO Dimensions but this is our first look at the LEGO Ideas set.
Hopefully there will be official details of the set available soon.
It appears from this picture that a lot of the detail on the exterior of the TARDIS will be done with printed elements. Fingers crossed that’s the case.
The Doctor has always been limited to exploring time and space. Sure it doesn’t sound like much of a limitation, but haven’t you always wanted to see what would happen if he could team up with Batman or maybe even Homer Simpson?
The latest LEGO Dimensions trailer shows off the Doctor helping out the three main characters (Wyldstyle, Batman and Gandalf) take on some classic Doctor Who villains.
The Doctor Who parts of game will feature Peter Capaldi voicing the Doctor as well as Jenna Coleman voicing Clara.
LEGO Dimensions may still be a few months away, but thanks to a discovery by Brickset we have some details of new sets that will coming out.
The biggest news is a completely new IP – Portal 2 will be making an appearance in LEGO form with a Dimensions Level Pack. A level pack means you won’t just get to play as Chell, you will also get to be able to play with all of the other characters in a Portal 2 inspired level. Have you always wanted to see LEGO Batman in Portal? Well now you can (probably).
The other really exciting news is a Doctor Who Level Pack. We knew that Doctor Who LEGO was coming soon, but to have him as a playable character in LEGO Dimensions is awesome. The level may be based on Victorian London, but it’s a bit hard to tell from the small image. What we do know is that there is a LEGO TARDIS.
We also have a third new Level Pack confirmed – The Simpsons. This doesn’t come as a huge surprise, but still looks like it could be a fun level.
Last but certainly not least we have two previously unannounced Team Packs featuring Scooby-Doo and Jurassic World. We knew that LEGO had the rights to both of these, but its great to see them appear in LEGO Dimensions. We can’t decide what we like more; the brick built raptor or the micro Mystery Machine.
The first Doctor Who Cuusoo project, simply called “Doctor Who”, has made it review.
After the recent announcement that Cuusoo would start accepting Doctor Who projects the question was never if one would reach review, but when.
This project’s review is going to be an interesting situation. If LEGO decides not to produce a set based on the project then there are going to be a lot of very confused fans out there. When LEGO explicitly said they were now allowing Doctor Who projects many people took this as confirmation that they had already secured the license. While this does seem plausible, it also isn’t confirmed.
One thing going against this project is that it isn’t quite as focused as other Cuusoo projects have been. There is no clear indication of what exactly is being proposed, with the project creator organising a poll for which characters people would like to see. With 13 different incarnations of The Doctor, at least 5 different companions (just in the modern series) and countless villains it is unlikely that everybody is going to be happy with the final set.
Interesting times ahead for fans of The Doctor.
