LEGO Releases Sylvia Earle Minifigurine


LEGO recently released a minifigurine modeled after Women Divers Hall of Famer Dr. Sylvia Earle.

“Her Deepness” comes included in a bunch of new LEGO Deep Sea Explorer kits.

Earle’s official minifigurines weren’t the first made in her likeness. Science writer and LEGO enthusiast Maia Weinstock made one of Earle that was presented to Her Deepness at the 2014 Glamour Woman of the Year Award ceremony.

Now, though, underwater explorers of all ages can build their own Deep Sea Explorer kits and imagine they’re diving with Earle herself.

If you want to buy a set, better hurry — they’re going fast. The “Starter Builder Set” will be available for shipping in August and will retail for US$17.80.
