LEGO has released a new mini-figure and she's a first.
The female scientist is brilliant, according to LEGO, and her specialty is finding new and interesting ways to combine things together. 
She's a far cry from Lego's "Friends" line, the only LEGO sets geared toward girls. Those sets are set in places like beauty shops, featuring a lot of pink and purple and have been criticized for promoting gender stereotypes.
