First it was the Winchester Pub, then it was Downton Abbey (created by New Yorker, Eric Stevens) and, finally. , it was the greatness of 221b Baker Street with a Sherlock Lego set.
While that might have just been a pig that flew by my window, it’s time to grab your bricks and build a TARDIS. Lego Cuusoo, which previously banned fans from submitting ideas based on licensed properties, recently posted in the License Conflicts and Resolutions section of its website that there’s no longer a conflict with the Doctor Who license. Simply stated, “We now welcome projects based on the following licenses that used to have conflicts: Doctor Who – February 2014.”
Commenting on why the sudden coming to their senses decision, Lego Cuusoo said, “Sometimes we have to turn down project submissions that refer to specific brands or licensed properties. We do this to avoid getting your hopes up for something we know we aren’t able to make. In these cases, we already know the Lego Group can’t secure licensing rights to produce construction toys based on a particular brand or property, due to a conflicting interest with a third party. If such a conflict goes away, we’ll then be able to accept projects based on a particular brand or license.”
Looks like the conflict has gone away so what are you waiting for? Create a set, submit it, then vote!
