This is just what the company will do when they release a new set that pays tribute to the women of NASA, including one of the women at the heart of the movie Hidden Figures.
The newest collection from the company (that we first learned about at Gizmodo) is a fan-designed LEGO Ideas submission from science editor and writer Maia Weinstock.
Her proposal to recognize women in STEM professions by honoring some of the most influential women to ever work at NASA got the 10,000 votes needed for it to be formally considered by the toy company.
The spirit of the collection is to honor women working in all fields of science, technology, engineering, and math, and the five people in the set all contributed to important NASA missions over the years, and it includes: While these images give us an idea of what the set might look like, LEGO says that they are “still working out the final product design, pricing and availability for the Women of NASA set,” and to keep an eye out in late 2017 or early 2018 for specifics on the collection.
The uplifting and inspiring Hidden Figures was one of our favorite movies of 2016, and Katherine Johnson’s appearance at the Oscars was our favorite moment of the entire show, so we’ll definitely be on the lookout for when the Women of NASA set comes to stores.
