I'm pretty sure they are printed. There are no seams around the edges of the designs to indicate stickers. Looks really good!
I suppose they have to do the most recent incarnation, but I would personally have preferred to (also) see either William Hartnell (the original Doctor), and/or Tom Baker (which i understand - though may be wrong - is still the longest serving, most widely recognised, and usually considered/voted the most popular Doc in the franchise).
Those two included would, i'd hazard, send an already anticipated set stratospheric.
Saying that, I wouldn't have been averse to a Karen Gillan fig, but that has nothing to do with any added sales potential, wider public appeal or historic significance, but everything to do with long red hair and a scots accent. ;oP
The set itself looks great to me and I can't wait to get it!
Which makes me wonder how much of a sticking point the choice of Docs might be for attracting a wider untapped market into lego with the set. It'll still likely sell out regardless, of course, but I'm less sure it'll attract much 'new money' into lego in quite the way an additional older Doc might have.
@SMC agree 100%, Tom Baker would've made a perfect choice for a lone add-on with K-9. I'll be surprised if they don't add him later.
Frankly, I think the head on Bilbo looks more like Tom Baker than the custom figure on the left...
Lego Ideas should change their name to Lego Popculture Ideas.
I digress. :)
It it needs more round things . . . . . . . . .
If it's an [email protected] exclusive like RI and Exosuit there could be trouble. Surely they wouldn't be stupid enough to limit it so. Aren't the Dimensions sets available everywhere?
About all this selling out in minutes, yes maybe for you to get it in time for Christmas but even then look how many TBBT sets Lego had ready to sell. RI and Exosuit went on sale the only real limited ideas set we have seen since the very early days was the Mars Rover.
So looking into this there is only one blue colour used for the tardis:
So the options are:
1. These are not the final parts we are seeing in the video, they could have been given the built set figures and box separately and this is not a boxed set that has been open and built for the video.
2. That this is another sign of poor quality control and colour matching.
I do think Doctor Who sets will be sought after but I do not think the demand will be high in the US compared to the UK (RI got a lot of press in the news here in the US, at least more than the typical LEGO set). So I see many many folks trying to get people in the US to buy them or buy them on eBay and ship them oversees if this is out before Christmas (and sold out before Christmas)
I like the look of the handrails to either side of the staircase as well - the mech arm and clip at an angle is a cool little combo.
