  4. Subversive Power Armor Hardsuits for LEGO Friends to Wear Into Battle

    Pulverizing gender stereotypes, one fully weaponized minifig at a time.

    The LEGO Friends line of products is a black mark on LEGO's otherwise impressive recent record of gender-neutral marketing, but as the SuperFriends Project demonstrated earlier this year, just because the toys themselves might be less than awesome doesn't mean master builders can't give the minifigs a radical makeover.

    Space Princess as a valid career goal, pants, and other important things.
