Make It Real: Doctor Who LEGO Set

Doctor Who LEGO

It’s surprising how something–or rather, someone–as popular as Doctor Who still doesn’t have a LEGO set to call his own. That might soon change if the set created by Andrew Clark gets enough votes on the LEGO Cuuso website. It’s currently has about 8,600 supporters, which is short of the 10,000 required before LEGO reviews the design and gives the decision on whether or not they’ll make the set into a reality.

Andrew’s Doctor Who set features all the well-known elements from the hit show, including the Doctor (of course!), his sonic screwdriver, and TARDIS.

Chasing After Daleks: Doctor Who Invades Pacman

Doctor Who Pacman Game

The Doctor isn’t one to run from a fight, but he’s smart, so he’ll run if he has to. Like in the Doctor PacMan game, for example. It’s essentially PacMan injected with Whovian elements, where the usual yellow dot-chomping dude is transformed into Doctor Who with the addition of a messy mop of hair and a pixelated bow tie.

Instead of the usual ghosts, ghastly Daleks (that’s Caan, Thay, Jast, and Seec, if you’re curious) are chasing Doctor PacMan through the labyrinth, where the occasional sonic screwdriver will turn the tables and have the Doctor chasing after them instead.

The game was made by Ruben P. Vargas from Rarity Workshop and you can play it HERE.

Not Bigger On the Inside, But Still Awesome: Stand-Up TARDIS Cardboard

Doctor Who Box

 

If you have two hundred bucks to spare and are a die-hard Whovian who would give anything to have his own TARDIS, then this cardboard stand-up that looks just like the one the Doctor has might just be the thing for you. The exterior features the time machine’s signature blue hue with the familiar “police box” sign painted right on top.

The cardboard stand-up measures 55-inches square by 180-inches tall and is big enough to fit a fully-grown man (and several more–although you shouldn’t expect it to magically expand to fit your entire gang!).

It’s available from Urban Collector for $225. Alternatively, you can just go and get some paint from Home Depot and paint over an empty refrigerator box.

Mini Flying TARDIS: Not Bigger On the Inside, But Still Awesome

RC Tardis

 

Owning this mini flying TARDIS won’t transform you into Doctor Who, but it will make you the coolest Whovian on the block. This flying R/C TARDIS is unlike your regular toy helicopter or quadcopter in terms of appearance, but you’ll be able to fly it with no problem at all if you’ve flown other R/C toys before.

The miniature TARDIS measures 3 inches in height and takes off and lands vertically. Aside from flying it, you’ll also be able to control its spin.

The Doctor Who R/C Flying TARDIS is available online for $49.99.

Celebrate, Don’t Exterminate: Life-Sized Dalek Wedding Cakes

Lifesize Dalek Cake

If you’re getting hitched and want to do it in style, then you might consider breaking from the usual themes and traditions and going for something really loud and bold instead. And if you happen to be a Whovian, then what better way to celebrate than to make some of the Doctor’s worst enemies a part of your party?

Daleks. I’m talking about life-sized Dalek cakes, like the ones a couple had Dinkeydoodle Designs make. One Dalek was the groom (cute tophat!) while the other one was the bride (it wouldn’t have been the bride without the veil.)

‘Doctor Meow’ Bow Ties are for the Coolest Cats on the Block

Doctor Meow

The bow tie is part of Doctor Who’s signature outfit. He always dresses so sharply and his dapper look isn’t complete without that distinct bow tie. Now your cat can share that same look, thanks to the advent of Doctor Meow.

These are tiny, elastic bow ties in various colors featuring a variety of patterns that fit most felines. They were created by print designer Crystal Dennis from the Real Art creative studio. Crystal explained that she got the inspiration for the bow ties from the hit show.

Question for artist: Does your product have a fun story behind it? If so, what is it?

Answer: The 11th Doctor Who is a bowtie-wearing Time Lord from Gallifrey. If he’s getting flack on his style choices he’s like, “What? Bowties are cool!” (…or a Stetson, or a fez).

Prepare to Blast Off! ‘Doctor Who’ Fans Fund Campaign to Send TARDIS to Space

TARDIS Orbit

Doctor Who’s TARDIS is a space and time traveling machine, and now it’s finally headed to outer space. TARDIS is no stranger to actual space travel in the fictional world, but it’s just a decorated blue telephone box with a very notable look here on Earth. Legions of Doctor Who fans want to change that, though, as they have raised enough funds to send a TARDIS-shaped satellite into Earth’s orbit.

Doctor Who K-9 USB Hub Expands Your USB Plugging Capabilities

K9 USB Hub

So this doppelganger K-9 won’t be able to expand your knowledge like its original version on Doctor Who, but it will expand the USB plugging capabilities of your computer or laptop–just like any good USB hub should do. It’s perfect for Whovians who want to own a miniature replica of the Doctor’s robotic canine companion that isn’t just a replica or toy.

On second thought, it’s actually good for anyone else who’s looking for a quirky computer accessory that is able to do what it promises to.

The Doctor Who K-9 USB Hub is available for pre-order for $39.99.

You’ll Never Be Thirsty Again: TARDIS Soda Machine

TARDIS Soda Machine

You’ll never be thirsty or run out of drinks ever again, not when you’ve got the TARDIS Soda Machine–and an efficient crew who’s on top of the inventory, that is. Doctor Who didn’t turn TARDIS into a soda dispensing machine to give mankind a never-ending supply of sugary and fizzy drinks. Rather, he merely inspired a bunch of guys from Epic Comics to turn their soda machine into the time and space-traveling box that has gotten the Doctor out of a lot of tough scraps.

You can see some photos of the build after the break.
