About Time: LEGO Producing Female Scientist Playsets

June 5, 2014

This is a preview of the upcoming LEGO playsets featuring female scientist minfigs. There's going to be a paleontologist, astronomer, and chemist. The playsets are a departure from LEGO's predominately male-centric sets, and come at a time when we need to inspire young females more than ever to pursue careers in the sciences. You know why? Because they think differently than males. We need NEW PERSPECTIVES. Like yesterday I was playing with my toys in front of the TV and I was getting frustrated then my girlfriend comes along and was all, "The square peg goes in the square hole, not the star-shaped one." BOOM -- problem solved. Then she told me it was time for me brush my teeth and go to bed but I secretly stayed up reading comic books under the covers with a fleshlight! "You mean flashlight?" No I do not.

Keep going for the video announcement, but skip to 1:55 if you don't want to see the other sets that were in the running.
