Who among the Whovians wouldn’t love to have a TARDIS of their very own? Aside from being one of the most iconic ships in sci-fi, Doctor Who‘s TARDIS represents the ultimate wish fulfillment for anyone who has ever dreamed of going on an epic adventure. If you could travel anywhere in time and space, where would you go first?
If you want to see a life-sized TARDIS made up entirely out of LEGOs, then you should probably head down to Sydney, Australia. The BrickMan Team has assembled a faithful recreation of the TARDIS in honor of Australia’s first ever Doctor Who Festival. It may not be bigger on the inside, but this TARDIS is plenty big on the outside!
And if you look closely, you’ll see that even the famous Police Telephone sign is comprised of LEGOs.
On The Brickman website, certified LEGO professional Ryan McNaught wrote a brief piece about the creation of the LEGO TARDIS:
Occasionally we build something that tops our usual standard of awesome, and occasionally we get to play with really cool stuff, like Dr Who. I remember as a kid watching the Doctor and his adventures around the galaxy, never for one minute did I think I’d ever get to build a life sized Tardis out of LEGO though!
Our team really did a cracking job on this huge model, and whilst I can’t tell you all the details about its build – The BBC are going to run some awesome competitions on it I can tell you that it was a lot of fun to build.
The LEGO TARDIS is currently on display at the Zing Pop Culture Store in Macquarie Park until November 18. On November 22 and 23, the LEGO TARDIS will rematerialize at the Hordern pavilion in Sydney for the inaugural Doctor Who Festival. Current Doctor Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat will be among the guests-of-honor at the festival. And wouldn’t it be awesome to see Capaldi sticking his head out of the LEGO TARDIS?
