I’ve always been a massive fan of Dr Who, ever since I was a child, about the same time I first got into LEGO. So to have an Ideas set which replicates the TARDIS interior and exterior was a no-brainer for my wishlist. The set did not disappoint. It came with two Doctors, Amy Pond, a couple of Daleks and a Weeping Angel – one of the scariest monsters to come out of recent episodes.
The TARDIS can be used closed, on its own as a play piece, or if you take the roof off and open up the doors, it integrates perfectly with the interior so you can see that it truly is bigger on the inside!
There were a few unusual build techniques with this one, especially to get the hexagonal array of displays around the middle of the drive shaft. Correctly lining up the outer barriers was a bit fiddly too, but worth it in the end. What a smart set – it looks great in my LEGO display case with some of my other prized sets.
