Ellen Kooijman stopped by the LEGO offices

Fan-designer of LEGO© Research Institute Ellen Kooijman, better known to the community as Alatariel, stopped by the LEGO offices in Billund to meet the LEGO Ideas team and to talk to the LEGO designer Steen Sig Andersen about the product details.

 

 

She got a chance to look at the final designs and check out the Minifigure scientists first-hand. She was even the very first person outside the LEGO Group to build the set! Read her own review here.

 

 

This awesome set featuring a chemist, an astronomer, a palaeontologist and all their cool equipment is on track to hit the shelves early August 2014.

 

 

As you can see, the Research Institute scientists can’t wait to get started…. It’s time to get excited!

I think it's really sad that this was only produced in such limited quantities that it sold out the first day, and LEGO won't be making it again. It really robs Ellen of royalty payments when LEGO decides to create so few of such a popular set. Sorry LEGO, but you've done a very bad thing to the LEGO Ideas community by limiting the production of this set!

You know, it can also switch the female minis around and play in different rolls. Example : The one with glasses as an astronomer in pony tail with the palaeontologist shirt.

The whole set just screams versatility with the astronomer being my favorite. I can see this vignette in various steampunk or lovecraftian scenarios. We also can imagine a female mad scientist here. Ah, it's beautiful.
