New LEGO Minifigures Break Ground With The First Female Scientist


The new LEGO Minifigures Series 11 are out and, for the first time ever, there’s a female scientist minifigure by the name Professor C. Bodin.

While minifigure scientists have been made before, this is the first series to contain a female scientist. I’d say something grumpy here, but I’m more about giving LEGO some props for this in hopes that they’ll continue the trend.

I also kind of love her bio.

The brilliant Scientist’s specialty is finding new and interesting ways to combine things together. She’ll spend all night in her lab analyzing how to connect bricks of different sizes and shapes (she won the coveted Nobrick Prize for her discovery of the theoretical System/DUPLO® Interface!), or how to mix two colors in one element.

Thanks to the Scientist’s tireless research, Minifigures that have misplaced their legs can now attach new pieces to let them swim like fish, slither like snakes, and stomp around like robots. Her studies of a certain outer dimension have even perfected a method for swapping body parts at will!

I’m also rather partial to the Island Warrior and the Yeti. Check out the full series after the break…
