On July 24th, goddess of beauty and science, Gillian Anderson (AKA Scully on The X-Files) announced on Twitter that “it’s time to start an X-Files Lego campaign.” I want to believe this will happen. Since this is 2015, Anderson took her campaign to twitter to rally the troops!

As the world eagerly awaits the return of the classic 90’s cult sci-fi show, it seems only natural for Lego-superfan Anderson to drum up support for a set. In May of 2014 Anderson participated in a Reddit AMA in which she talked about how an ordinary day for her involves playing Lego with her kids, and she confessed to crying at the end of The Lego Movie. I didn’t think it was possible to love her any more than I already do, but damn girl! And since this is 2015, Anderson took her campaign to twitter to rally the troops!

Of course a couple months back the idea for an official X-Files set was floated around by the creator of the Lego Ghostbusters set, Brent Waller, which we wrote about here. Unfortunately when he pitched the idea to Lego for a Mulder and Scully-themed set he was rejected by Lego Ideas “due to the mature themes” of the TV show. Kinda like how we’re never gonna see an official Breaking Bad Lego set. Or, my personal dream of seeing Twin Peaks brick-ified.

One can only hope that the powers-that-be deem an official X-Files Lego set worthy, cause I’m telling you, when the show premieres in January, those babies will sell faster than the Smoking Man can light up a cigarette.

“Mature themes?” What nonsense! Batman has “mature themes.” Doctor Who has “mature themes.” Lord of the Rings has “mature themes.” Jurassic Park/World has “mature themes.” The Avengers has “mature themes.” Indiana Jones has “mature themes.” Star Wars has “mature themes.”

Yet what has Lego done to all these properties to bring them in line with their needs? Glossed over the “mature themes” and added some of the best humor that exists to every single one! Why can’t that be done for the X-Files? It can. They just don’t want to.

Either that, or Fox wants too much for the licensing.
