LEGO Cuusoo will now take proposals for Doctor Who sets.
Previously any potential Who projects were rejected due to a conflict with Character Building's licence to produce Doctor Who toys. I can only guess that Character Building's licence has now expired because yesterday Lego updated their site with this very promising message...
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.
Resolved Past Licensing ConflictsWe now welcome projects based on the following licenses that used to have conflicts:

I've got a couple of the Character Building sets but, let's face it, LEGO is superior, so I'm hoping that some very creative people are hard at work today, producing ideas for potential LEGO Doctor Who sets that I can add to my collection. Any previous Doctor Who submissions will need to be resubmitted and will need to reach the 10,000 vote threshold before reviewed by the LEGO board. I can't see that being a problem, can you?
