For the first time, LEGO has added a female scientist to the lineup. The new minifigure is identified as Professor C. Bodin. She wears glasses, a white uniform and clutches a lab flask in each claw hand.

According to NBC Today, the 'Scientist' is being hailed a "stereotype-busting hero of the toy aisle." LEGO has faced criticism in the past for gearing toys and characters to boys and making female charaters overly feminine.
