There are some new Minifigures on the LEGO block, and they love to study science. While this may not seem like an unusual departure from the toy’s regular line of explorers, academics, and swashbucklers, the gender of this tiny person sets them apart. The Minifigures Series 11 collection features a female chemist, complete with a set of beakers and lab coat. Even more exciting, three new learned ladies may soon be on their way in a project proposed by Alatariel.
