Article about the artist behind the Lego Mulder/Scully figures in the picture that was posted online by Gillian! We think these are super cool and a lot of Duchovniacs have said they NEED to have them. Listen up LEGO: We want Mulder and Scully LEGO figures! Just pick up the phone and make it happen!
“The X-Files” is heading back to TV, and Gillian Anderson thinks it’s about time the series gets a Lego set.
The actress took to Twitter to post a photo showing her and co-star David Duchovny holding custom-created Lego versions of Mulder and Scully. “Time to start an X-Files Lego campaign?!” she writes.
Anderson missed the boat a little bit on these beauties, because they already made a splash on the Internet back in May. Lego superfan Brent Waller posted photos of his intricately crafted “X-Files” custom set to Flickr, which include the version of Mulder and Scully that Anderson and Duchovny are holding.
Waller is more than just a fan, though; he’s responsible for getting Lego to release a “Ghostbusters” set after he created an incredible custom version. He told Gizmodo that he submitted his “X-Files” set to Lego Ideas, but they rejected it “due to the mature themes” of the show.
Maybe the attention of Anderson and Duchovny and the return of “The X-Files” on FOX will be enough to convince Lego to change its mind on the set. The new series premieres on Jan. 24, 2016.
