I'm really excited about the League of Legends Lego project. I'm a super LoL fan and I hope it passes review.

Female minifigures are what really interested me. We need more equality in the minifigure department, despite the fact that the recent Minifigure line is helping bring the numbers up.
If I'd had something like this when I was a kid, it would have helped me learn that I can be whatever I want, including the things that people consider 'masculine'. Although I wish the best for Friends, young girls have a tendency to think two ways: that you need to be girly and pretty or shun all femininity and try to become a boy. Something like this would encourage them to understand that you can be both.
I no longer need Taipu as I have achieved the impossible.
I have girlfriend.

The female minifigure set is great! The designs are well thought out and they would not only be cool to put into a town or city MOC, but also to just display on a shelf. Though, one thing that bothers me a bit about the project is that again, it's something that begins to state that girls need to only aspire to really high level professional jobs in traditionally male roles and nothing else. The Friends line is doing a better job giving examples of traditional and non-traditional gender roles that girls can aspire to for their future careers than this potential LEGO set is. What if a young girl (or boy) wants to become a stay at home parent, a teacher, a homemaker, a hairdresser, a childcare worker, a nurse, a secretary, a cook, a waiter, a receptionist, a salesperson, etc., all jobs that can be considered traditional female roles? It would nice to see some equality in these sets and understanding that if you want to become a stay at home parent or a nurse, that's great, but if you want to also become a paleontologist or astronomer, or even some kind of combination of traditional and non-traditional gender role careers, that is great too because there is nothing wrong with aspiring for those careers either! TL;DR: Let children aspire to be what they want to be. But also we want more female minifigs, please.

I have a good feeling about the "Female Minifigure Set" it look like something i see in a set; but the Chemist don't look like it gong to have that look of body with the small legs and the Tiger don't look like something we see today with lego plus with Mechanic, Fire fighter & Construction worker look like a good idea to add hair to their hat. I think i am going to like the Robotics Engineer.
OK if lego say yes to the "League of Legends" with all that purple i think i'll scream like a girl.

I don't know how the female minifigure sets will work out with all the extra bits with them. They seem too much to be like the current collectible minifig series, too little to be a set in their own right. I guess if they packaged them all together...
As for LoL, I know nothing about it, except that its abbreviated as such because I've heard friends talking about it. The purple thing looks pretty cool though.
