Cuusoo users can now submit their Doctor Who-themed LEGO concepts.
When it comes to fans, it's probably safe to assume that a significant overlap exists between Doctor Who and LEGO. But the two have never been able to find an appropriate marriage, thanks to licensing restrictions. This week, however, LEGO updated its License Conflicts and Resolutions page, lifting the ban on Doctor Who-themed sets.
This doesn't necessarily mean that LEGO has plans to produce a series of Doctor Who minifigs, but Cuusoo users are now able to submit their Whovian concepts.
Cuusoo, for the uninitiated, is a website that allows fans to submit their own, unique LEGO ideas. After a proposal has been uploaded, the Cuusoo community votes on the concept. Any project that garners more than 10,000 supporters will be reviewed by staffers for its potential as a full-fledged LEGO product.
So far, Cuusoo has been responsible for producing the DeLorean from Back to the Future and the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters. Recently, voting commenced on an Apple Store play set that looks almost as pretentious as a real Apple store.
LEGO has been rejecting Doctor Who concepts since Cuusoo launched in 2008. But now that the ban has been lifted, fans are encouraged to resubmit their ideas.
