DOCTOR WHO: Matt Smith’s Regeneration Done with LEGO CGI

Everything should be LEGO, right? I think we’re all pretty much on the same page about that. In the last LEGO Ideas group of user-submitted sets they’d like to see, which gave us Back to the Future and Ghostbusters sets, two Doctor Who sets were among the five nominees. The winner was… neither of them. Nope, LEGO went with a birds project, and a, get ready for this, The Big Bang Theory set. WHYYYYYYYY? They did say, however, that they’re still looking into the Doctor Who sets, hopefully to make a full and complete line of them. (You can see the full results here.)

Anyway, I tell you all that so I can show you something else super cool. Because the love and want for Doctor Who LEGO sets is so huge, and the love for those things individually is so massive, there’s been all kinds of fan-made combos of the two. Earlier this year, there was a stop-motion LEGO version of “The Day of the Doctor”, and now there’s a CGI recreation of the final scene of “The Time of the Doctor,” that of course being Matt Smith’s final hurrah, beginning from when Clara enters the TARDIS to the end of the episode, by YouTube animator Blob Van Dam Have a look!

That’s very well done, and like the early LEGO video games, there’s no dialogue. But, like, you get the gist of what’s going on. There are also really nice little LEGO-mation touches like Smith erasing his painted-on bow tie, the head and hair switching for the regeneration, and Capaldi, for no reason that I can tell, pulls a turkey leg from behind him and starts to eat it. Great work Mr. Van Dam, or should I call you Blob?

    Turkey leg? I thought it was a spoon! 😀

  2. Kevin says:

    That was the stupidest, most unfunny and unessesary thing I’ve seen. “Let’s remove everything touching about the scene, add the dumbest comedy, with the most ridiculous animation.” It’s not even a parody, it’s just…stupid. I’m beyond fed up with all this Lego crap lately.

  3. Amanda says:

    This just solidifies a Dr. Who Lego game.  MAKE IT SO!

  4. Peyton says:

    Seriously? Lego didn’t green light Doctor Who sets, but they went with a bird thing? Booooooo.

    damnit! I still choked up! even though there’s no dialogue

    Turkey leg because they were cooking Clara’s Christmas turkey on the TARDIS engine, I think?
