Review (Finally): 21304 Lego Doctor Who

Pieces: 623  Minifigures: 4 + 2 Daleks  Retail Price: $59.99  Price I Paid: Retail

Well I finally got around to posting in 2016 and reviewing a set I had been waiting for for a long time, Lego Ideas Doctor Who. It’s great. It’s expensive. But it’s great.

21304 box front

It comes in the usual nice Lego Ideas box.

21304 box back

And has 4 or 6 minifigures depending on if you count Daleks…

21304 11th Doctor

Bowties are cool.

21304 11 w fez

Fezzes are cool.

21304 Doctor and Clara

Clara thankfully doesn’t have short legs. She should – but short legs are not as playable and don’t lend themselves to all the running that is done on Doctor Who since the reboot.

21304 figures back

They are printed on the back, if you are someone into that sort of thing.

21304 baddies

Weeping Angel and 2 Daleks. Lego Minifigure Weeping Angel. Insane. If any minifigure is going to give you nightmares, it’s this one.

21304 Police Box

The Tardis – Police Box is well proportioned and dark blue. No stickers involved! I do wish they could have printed that all on one long flat piece but they sort of couldn’t have…

21304 Run

If the David Tenant minifigure were here, he’d say, “Allons-y!”

21304 Weeping Angel

Don’t Blink.

21304 Box Opening

And there you see, the pieces lift up and…

21304 Set

Voila! We’re in the Tardis!

21304 Tardis full

21304 Set reverse

As you can see, 3 of the 4 Police Box flats have to be two pieces.

21304 Doctor in the Tardis

You can close the Tardis with one minifigure in it. Handy for travelling through time and space.

And there you have it. This set gets a 9.5. It’s a shame it isn’t cheaper so you can stock up on weeping angels and Daleks. Here’s hoping that it sells well enough to warrant more Doctor Who sets and iterations of the Doctor and his companions in Lego minifigure form. As you probably know you can get a Cyberman with the Lego Dimensions pack and the current Doctor in a different coat as well. The Cyberman is only $7.49 currently and tempting me even though I won’t be playing Lego Dimensions.

Well there you have it – the review you’ve hopefully not been waiting for – hopefully you’ve bought it for yourself already.

And I made it through the whole review without saying “wibbly-wobbly, time-y wime-y stuff.” Oh.

Buy it on Amazon.
