Lego May Create Toy Set Based on TV Drama Series THR
The venerable toy company Lego is looking at bringing out a new toy set based on a TV drama series. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the PBS show “Sherlock” is the inspiration for the proposed Lego set.
A proposed “Sherlock” Lego set is among the six finalists for a new line of Legos that will come out in winter 2014.
Two Lego versions of “Sherlock” have been proposed. One is a 370-piece set that re-creates the detective’s consultation/living room, while the other is a slightly larger version of the same room, with 630 pieces. The sets would also include mini-figures of Sherlock, Watson, arch-villain Jim Moriarty, Inspector Lestrade, Mrs. Hudson, Molly Hooper and Mycroft Holmes.
Among the other proposals are sets based on the television show “Adventure Time,” the “Back to the Future” films and “The Legend of Zelda.”
The review period, during which the Lego company will decide which finalists will move forward, will end in May.
