'The Big Bang Theory' is about to get Lego-d

Posted on

The Big Bang Theory is getting the Lego treatment, joining the pop-culture likes of Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Jurassic Park.

That’s right, Lego is releasing a set based on the massively popular CBS sitcom, which follows a group of scientists—Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Howard (Simon Helberg), Raj (Kunal Nayyar), Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), and Amy (Mayim Bialik)— and their one non-scientist friend, Penny (Kaley Cuoco).

The set proposal was submitted to the Lego Ideas program by Alatariel and GlenBricker. (Check out the full proposal here.) Its description reads: “This LEGO set proposal is based on the popular American sitcom The Big Bang Theory created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady. The set represents the living room of Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter, which is the core location of the series. It’s filled with geeky details accurate to the show including Sheldon’s board, Green Lantern lantern, Rubik’s cube tissue box, DNA model, mini LEGO Death Star and more!”

Upon receiving 10,000 votes, Lego approved the proposal, though final details have not yet been announced. Most importantly, will you be running out to get a Lego Sheldon? Be honest…
