'Doctor Who' actor Peter Capaldi was completely blown away by his LEGO video game mini-me

San diego comic con lego dimensions doctor whoLEGOAre you ready to play as a LEGO-fied version of Doctor Who?

Wednesday evening, WB games showed off footage from its upcoming Lego game out this fall, “LEGO Dimensions” at San Diego Comic-Con’s preview night.

The game will feature multiple characters from various Lego franchises including Batman, “Jurassic World,” “Lord of the Rings,” “The Simpsons,” and, will allow fans to play and interact with all of them in one place.

(If you’re familiar with the Disney Infinity and Skylanders franchises, that’s what WB Games and Lego is doing here with “Dimensions.”)

Wednesday, WB Games debuted the first “Doctor Who” gameplay footage at the press event.

And, who better to introduce the footage than members of the cast and crew of the actual “Doctor Who” series?

After lending his voice to the game, Capaldi said the event Wednesday evening was the first time he was seeing the character in the actual game itself.

It showed as he and the rest of the “Doctor Who” cast and crew on hand couldn’t take their eyes off the gameplay footage.

“This tiny little figure here is me with a little grey toupee on! It’s amazing!” Calpadi said at the event.

To add characters to the game, you purchase buildable Lego figures to place upon the Lego Dimensions toypad (seen below). 

Capaldi even got in on the action himself interacting with his Lego mini-me:

“LEGO Dimensions” will be the first time “Doctor Who” is in a Lego game. In addition to Capaldi’s version of the Doctor, fans will be able to play as ALL 12 iterations of the Doctor.

From what we saw, “LEGO Dimensions” looks incredibly fun and adorable if you’re familiar with previous Lego games.

(Imagine driving a Batmobile as Doctor Who. It doesn’t get much cooler than that.)

“LEGO Dimensions” will be in stores September 27 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PS3, and Wii U.
