If there’s one LEGO set we at FTN have been bouncing to get it’s the Ghostbusters HQ. If there’s two, it’s a Doctor Who set…

Well, it looks like the Ghostbusters HQ dream is over, but the Doctor Who one? Well…

The LEGO Group have just announced they will be producing a LEGO Doctor Who set based on the LEGO IDEAS website entry from  Andrew Clark who’s Companions set received the 10,000 votes needed to make his dream happen.

A licensing agreement between BBC Worldwide and The LEGO Group will see the new set available in all of The LEGO Group’s key markets before the end of the year. Andrew’s design featured a range of Doctors, companions and monsters across the show’s history, but there’s no word on what will be produced when the set(s) appear.

Emma Owen, UK spokesperson for LEGO Ideas commented: “We’re extremely excited to announce that a Doctor Who and a WALL-E set will be released as our next LEGO Ideas fan based sets, congratulations to the designers Andrew Clark and Angus MacLane!

“After receiving over 10,000 votes from the online community and having gone through rigorous toy testing from our expert panel, these awesome sets are on track to be on shelves later this year. The final set designs, pricing and availability are being worked out as we speak, so watch this space for the final details!”

We’re still gutted over the GB HQ. But, yay, Doctor Who!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
