Oh yes, make it happen please!
That would be so super cool, just imagine constructing 221 Baker Street with Sherlock and Watson and Moriarty! What a collector’s item this would be!
So how did this come about? Well, I had no idea you could do this, but Lego accepts proposals for new Lego character sets. And if your proposal get’s 10,000 signatures, the company will consider it!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, there are 6 finalists all together, including the Sherlock BBC lego set. You can view the other finalists here. I think The Legend of Zelda is a good one, and I also like the Delorean from the Back to the Future Trilogy . The Japanese architecture is pretty cool too. I’m surprised there wasn’t an entry for Dr. Who!
But honestly, a Sherlock playset, it’s about high time and sign me up, I would absolutely spend the money to have one in this house.
I mean how many Lego Star Wars ships can one own, we have all of them I think!
Plus LEGO Building Sets are just so amazing anyways. They spark the imagination, allow kids of all ages to use their creativity and come up with scenes and scenarios out of their own imagination. I wrote an article about building blocks for kids on squidoo and why I like them so much. (Update: Squidoo has shut its doors 🙁 I will move the article elsewhere and repost the link)
I love that the proposal is for the BBC Sherlock rather than Elementary. Although I would also have been happy with any of the more traditional Sherlock Holmes characterizations being made into Lego. There are so many constants like the apartment at 221B Baker Street and Sherlock in his overcoat. It would be all good!
If you could make a proposal to LEGO for a playset, what would it be and why?
Update 2016. Sadly this Sherlock BBC Lego Set was never made. However Nerds all over the world do have some other awesome Lego sets to choose from, check them out below!
