+ - Lego to Produce Three Box Sets Featuring Female Scientists

Submitted by vossman77
vossman77 (300689) writes "The Chicago Tribune reports: "Lego will produce a limited-edition box set called Research Institute, featuring three female scientists in the act of learning more about our world and beyond." After receiving 10,000 supporters on the LEGO ideas site. Creator Ellen Kooijman writes in a blog post: "As a female scientist I had noticed two things about the available Lego sets: a skewed male/female minifigure ratio and a rather stereotypical representation of the available female figures. It seemed logical that I would suggest a small set of female mini-figures in interesting professions to make our Lego city communities more diverse." According to LEGO, "The final design, pricing and availability are still being worked out, but it’s on track to be released August 2014.""
