Life Size LEGO Tardis!
- Created on Tuesday, 10 November 2015 08:44
Occasionally we build something that tops our usual standard of awesome, and occasionally we get to play with really cool stuff, like Dr Who.
I remember as a kid watching the Doctor and his adventures around the galaxy, never for one minute did I think I’d ever get to build a life sized Tardis out of LEGO though!
Our team really did a cracking job on this huge model, and whilst I can’t tell you all the details about its build – The BBC are going to run some awesome competitions on it I can tell you that it was a lot of fun to build.
You can check it out at:
The Zing Pop Culture Store in Macquarie Park where it will be on display from the 10-18 November.
Then The Dr Who Festival at the Hordern pavilion in Sydney on the 21st and 22nd of November. (Peter Capaldi will even be there!)
Pictures courtesy of BBC Worldwide, except for the one from our workshop which was courtesy of one of our builders Mitch - The same guy who made the awesome signage on the front of the tardis.

A huge thanks to everyone that came along to the Brickman Experience in Melbourne.
I had a lot of feedback that everyone had a great time, there was lots of amazing building happening!
So everyone that went along was asked to sign a random LEGO brick which of course then led to me having a big pile of bricks, So I thought id make something that can travel along with the show from each location and venue it has been to, so here it is for Melbourne!
Head over to Flickr where you can tag yourself as part of the build.
The next question is, what am i going to build with the bricks from Sydney? Only one way to find out, click here to get tickets for Sydney which will have some brand new models on display along with everything from the Melbourne show.
