The Doctor will undergo yet another regeneration — this time, materializing as a Lego character.

A “Doctor Who”-themed Lego set will go into production this year, the Lego Group announced Wednesday morning.

The concept for the set was chosen after “Doctor Who” fan Andrew Clark submitted a design on the Lego Ideas website, where fans can vote for their favorite ideas to be produced. Clark, who works as a video game artist, offered a design featuring an unfolding TARDIS (the Doctor’s time machine and spaceship) and a range of Doctors, including incarnations played by fan favorites David Tennant and Tom Baker, as well as the current actor, Peter Capaldi. His concept also included several companions and monsters, among them Daleks and Weeping Angels.

Lego has yet to release details about which characters and features will appear in the toy set, but fans won’t have to wait too long; a licensing agreement between BBC Worldwide and the Lego Group will see the new set on store shelves before the end of the year, according to a press statement from BBC.

Check out Clark’s concept work in the gallery above and in the video below.

“Doctor Who,” which began in 1963, is the world’s longest-running sci-fi TV series. The series follows a continually regenerating alien and his various traveling companions in their adventures across time and space.
