Doctor Who and Companions

Here at Learning Liftoff, we’re huge fans of Doctor Who.  We’re happy to see the Timelord and his companions are making it to the block world. Below, Andy Clark shares a few cool features from his concept for the Lego Ideas team.

Wall•E

The Wall•E Lego Idea was created by Pixar animator, Angus MacLane. In an interview with The Brothers Brick, he talked about how Legos have helped him in respect to animating.

“LEGO gets you used to thinking and designing in three dimensions. It has really helped my ability to visualize spatial relations. This is especially useful when working with artists and technical directors to take 2D designs and successfully turn them into 3D character models.” –Angus MacLane. The Brothers Brick
