    Thank you to everyone who voted for this set! It was a fantastic ride, just recently passing 4K votes, which is far more than most sets ever achieve! But we unfortunately won't be making it to our 10K goal. I very much appreciate everyone's enthusiasm and encouragement, and hope you'll continue to to support projects featuring women and girls in leading roles!

    Cheers,

    New pics: RI court, Cape Cod adventure

    On

    Happy holidays to everyone from the Legal Justice Team!

    The Justices recently visited the smallest state in the U.S.: Rhode Island! The RI Supreme Court is located in a beautiful Providence building that's nestled between downtown and College Hill.

    They also took some time to relax in nearby Cape Cod, in neighboring Massachusetts.

    We've had an amazing year traveling North America and look forward to visiting more courts in the year ahead. Have a wonderful new year, everyone! Here's hoping we'll reach 10K votes in 2016 :)

    cheers,

    The Justices had a blast on the left coast!

    First stop was the Supreme Court of California in San Francisco:

    Next, on their way up the coast, they stopped to do some sightseeing at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge!

    Finally, the Justices visited Salem, Oregon, home of the Oregon Supreme Court.

    As always, thank you to everyone for your support of this set! Special thanks to WomanthologyUK for featuring the Legal Justice Team in their article this month:

    facebook.com/LegalJusticeTeam | twitter.com/LegoJustices

    I'll be posting pics of the justices as they visit courts across North America, plus news about the project, and about women in law around the world. I'll also be highlighting other LEGO Ideas projects every now and then! So, I hope you'll join us on our journey :)

    I also want to thank Public Radio International for highlighting the Legal Justice Team in their timeline of females in LEGO this week! It's an honor to be included :)

    New baseplate options!

    On

    Hey, everyone! Thanks for your continued support of the Legal Justice Team set. In response to your suggestions, I've added a couple of options for baseplates to help keep the court scene together:

    With a 16x16 baseplate, the main elements of the set can be bound together with limited extra floorspace. This option makes it easier to introduce other minifigures or objects at random angles with respect to the central benches and chairs.

    A 32x16 baseplate provides additional room for secure positioning of figures and objects such as the included bench fences/gates as well as any extra minifigures you may add to the scene.

    I'd love to hear your thoughts on which one you think works best — or if you prefer no baseplate at all, let me know in the comments!

    cheers,
    Maia (@20tauri)


    New milestone, new deadline, new pics: the Justice Team visits D.C.!

    On

    Hey everyone! Some fantastic news: We recently passed the 2,500-vote mark, meaning we're a quarter of the way to 10K. Thanks to all who have supported this set so far!

    LEGO has also just announced a new time extension for sets earning 1,000+ and 5,000+ votes within their first year on LEGO Ideas. That means the Legal Justice Team currently has until early fall 2016 to reach its goal.

    To celebrate, I hope you'll enjoy these new photos of our favorite justices doing a little sightseeing in Washington, D.C.!

    cheers,
