So you are trying to set the scene for Operational Sea Lion games for Bolt Action.
One of the challenges has been finding British scenery. If you were playing in 20mm then there was a whole model railway scene for an English landscape. However if you went down the 15mm (or the 28mm) road then alas there was very little available.
With the release of the Sea Lion campaign books from Warlord Games for Bolt Action, it’s nice to see that they are also releasing some nice scenery pieces to go with the campaign.
Fill your battlefields with iconic British objects – the Police, Telephone and Pillar boxes. An absolute must have for any British battlefield, providing key communication hubs for your local defence volunteers.
Of course I am probably not alone thinking, hmmm blue Police Box, I wonder who uses that!
So as well as Operation Sea Lion, you could also the scenery for Doctor Who games (pity the nice new Warlord Games Doctor Who miniatures are 32mm and not 28mm).
Also I can see these scenic items proving useful for a Very British Civil War games, as well as many of the Operation Sealion releases from Warlord Games. I do like their LDV volunteers for example.
I wonder if there are any other releases on the horizon?
The LEGO Ideas Doctor Who set will be available in December.
The back of the box shows that the set will contains two Doctors, Clara, a Weeping Angel and some Daleks.
More photographs of the model.
Nice model of the Tardis, which I think works well.
Still don’t really like the Daleks.
Nice Weeping Angel, I don’t think that the Peter Capaldi doctor has actually seen a Weeping Angel, but I may be wrong.
Looks like we will have Lego Doctor Who… very soon! This is the first official image of the new Doctor Who Lego.
Update: We now have the Tardis console as well….
This was a Lego Ideas submission which was approved to be a real product.
We already have Lego Dimensions Doctor Who as we found out in July. This is the video from that announcement.
It looks like from the video that you will be able to play all thirteen doctors in the game. In addition there are Daleks and Cybermen.
Well what do we have here, the Doctor in Lego.
Oh and K9 and a TARDIS.
Okay so not a proper set (just yet), but for the forthcoming Lego Dimensions console game.
The game uses “real” Lego which are then “brought” into the game. There is a real mix of brands, for example the starter set has Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle (from The Lego Movie).
You can expand the game with packs and these have so far included figures from the Lego franchises such as Ninjago, but also Wonder Woman, Lord of the Rings, Wizard of Oz and Back to the Future.
With the release of some instructions, we now know that there will also be an expansion pack for Doctor Who.
The copyright notice for Doctor Who is quite interesting as it includes details of Daleks and Cybermen.

From this I would ascertain that we will see Lego Daleks and Cybermen, very likely in the game, but could mean Lego Daleks if and when more Doctor Who Lego is released. The BBC does not hold all the rights to all the Doctor Who monsters, therefore licensed products need to both licence Doctor Who from the BBC, but also need to licence Terry Nation (estate) for the Daleks.
In addition to Doctor Who we have also seen packs for Jurassic World, Scooby Doo, Portal and The Simpsons.
Yes we now have pictures of the new redesigned TARDIS. Lots of different levels and stairways.
It’s not how I imagined the new TARDIS interior, however it does reflect the new style TARDIS as seen in the David Tennant era and the style of the new show over the old show.
I still think a re-boot Doctor Who would have been fun (as they did with Star Trek) and created lots of new and exciting possibilities. Maybe one day…
An interesting commentary here.
To be honest I have not read any fan websites out there or even much of the official coverage, however I do have the following prediction to make about the end of and beginning of Doctor Who.
My prediction is… well select (highlight) the text below to see what it is.
My prediction is that we see the Doctor go back in time to the beginning of his life. A kind of reboot for Doctor Who.
Well first we see the return of the Time Lords which is a bit of a reboot!
Secondly look at William Hartnell’s TARDIS from the 1960s…
Now look at Matt Smith’s TARDIS.
Compare that to David Tennant’s TARDIS.
Notice that Matt’s and William’s TARDIS have the same white windows.
Well not long now to find out for sure…. though we might have to wait until April!
The TARDIS at the entrance to Brighton Pier…
…well advertising it more, at the entrance…
This real TARDIS was seen on the streets of Glasgow.
I also saw a red version, however no Daleks, Cybermen or Autons to be seen…. or did that shop dummy just look at me!
