In The News
As you can see it contains the 11th and 12th Doctors, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi, Clara Oswald, two Daleks and a Weeping Angel. 54.99€ is about £40 or $60 USD which seems to be pretty good value for a 600+ piece set with four minifigs, although the LEGO Ideas blog lists a slightly higher price of €59.99. The set will be released on the 1st of December.
Update: CM4S has come up trumps again so we now have official images from the LEGO Ideas blog where you will find a gallery of photos and the product description.
It never ceases to amaze me how people find ways of making money from our hobby, whether it be buying and selling, building models professionally, writing books and magazines, renting out LEGO sets, running websites or YouTube channels, or creating 'loot box' subscription services.
Brickbox Club is one of the latter that launched in the USA earlier this year: pay a subscription fee then receive a box of goodies in the post every month. It's not the first LEGO related service like this to be started but it has one major advantage over other similar services that I am aware of: everything in the box is LEGO or LEGO-compatible. There's no filler clone brand rubbish that most of us would discard immediately.
I've been sent the September box to review, so read on to find out what's in it and whether it represents good value for money.
LEGO has just tweeted another image of the forthcoming Ideas Doctor Who set, this time showing the inside of the TARDIS. I reckon we will get a couple more teasers before a full reveal later this week.
Perhaps the minifigures will be next...
Update: I think MiniFigFiend has correctly speculated in the comments that the set will be revealed at New York Comic Con which begins on October 8.
Yesterday while all the Brickset staff were busy at the Great Western Brick Show (which was great, btw), LEGO released this Doctor Who teaser image on social media which must surely indicate that the long-overdue reveal and release of the set is imminent.

MeganL has written another review on one of the summer Friends releases: 41100 Heartlake Private Jet.
I love LEGO vehicles, so when I saw the private jet and the airport, I knew I would be checking both of them out...
