Big Bang Theory to get Lego version

How did this not happen sooner?

The lovable nerds of US sitcom The Big Bang Theory will be immortalised as Lego figurines, after an online campaign got over 10,000 supporters, reports Entertainment Weekly. 

Not only will the set come with Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, and other main characters, but, according to the campaign page, it will also be "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!"

The Lego fans behind the idea - Alatariel and GlenBricker - even let supporters vote for which shirt they wanted Lego Sheldon to wear.

A poll on Alatariel's blog shows The Flash T-shirt to be the most popular option. 

No word yet on when the set will be ready for purchase, but you can check for updates on Alatariel's blog.
