Petition for Doctor Who LEGO
Do YOU want to see an official range of LEGO Doctor Who sets
Would YOU like to help me petition LEGO for such a range?
Hopefully LEGO fans reading this blog will be aware of the LEGO Ambassador Program – where Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOLs) nominated by their respective LUGs can interact directly with the LEGO Group to dicsuss ideas, themes and trends.
I am pleased to be able to announce that for the 2011 cycle, I have been accepted as a LEGO Ambassador on behalf of The Brickish Association, the UK Forum for Adult Fans of LEGO.
I am happy to serve and I will endeavour to do so to the best of my ability…but I would also like to be able to use this position to attempt to persuade LEGO to take the plunge and open discussions with the BBC about a range of official Doctor Who LEGO sets.
There are a great many AFOLs out there who are also fans of Doctor Who – myself included. There are also huge numbers of children out there who I am sure would be delighted to see two of their interests, Doctor Who and LEGO, merge together to create what could be an extremely exciting range of figures and sets. Such a range would be potentially unlimited in scope, featuring all eras of history, including future history, and any world in the universe.
Doctor Who has a rich strain of stories, characters and alien creatures to call upon – this could be the ultimate LEGO range.
LEGO’s response to date has always been that Doctor Who doesn’t have enough of an international following to be successful – a response that I don’t accept, and I’d like you to help me try to prove them wrong.
To help prove the point, I have set up an online petition and I would
ask anyone of the same mind as me to complete this to help in my
campaign. In addition, I am keen to acquire testimonials from AFOLs
about their specific interests in a Doctor Who LEGO range – for example,
do you have children of your own who are crying out for such a range?
Give me the information, and I will present it en-masse to The LEGO
Group. You can sign the petition here, you can participate on the Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Petition-for-Doctor-Who-LEGO/159155170794574?v=info) and/or you can e-mail your testimonials directly to email@example.com
Obviously, I cannot promise that we will get a result, but we can at least perhaps hope to raise the global profile of Doctor Who with LEGO.
