The women U.S. Supreme Court justices, past and present, are now in Lego form.
Because who wouldn't want a pocket-size Ruth Bader Ginsburg?
Plus Sonia Sotomayor, Sandra Day O'Connor, and Elena Kagan. Together, they form what creator Maia Weinstock calls the "Legal Justice League."
"They’re amazing and they’re trailblazers and clearly role models for girls who are interested in law and government," the 37-year-old told BuzzFeed News.
Unfortunately, the figurines aren't on the market — Weinstock tried to get Lego to manufacture the Supreme Court set, but it was rejected from the company's Ideas contest for being "political," she said.
In the last four years, Weinstock, a science journalist, has also designed her own figures representing famous scientists and musicians, many of them women — like leading chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall.
And Swedish recording artist Robyn.
"Girls definitely have fewer role models to look up to in toys and media," Weinstock told BuzzFeed News. "I know how much encouragement really affects how girls can perceive whether they can go further on in life."
