LEGO has announced that beginning Nov. 1 you can pick up your Women of NASA set.
LEGO Ideas is a site where anyone can propose a new LEGO set. Once it reaches 10,000 votes the company will then consider the viability of actually releasing it. This is exactly how Minecraft and LEGO first came together, and here we are several years and sets later.
The latest set to go through the process was a set suggested by Maia Weinstock was a “Women of NASA” set, and it will begin selling on Nov. 1 for $24.99.
The new set includes four minifigures of famous women of NASA: Nancy Grace Roman, Margaret Hamilton, Sally Ride and Mae Jemison. You’ll also get bases that correspond to their areas of specialty for the Space Agency.
