Ever wonder what Supreme Justices Elana Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg would look like as Lego figures? Well, we didn’t either, but if you take a look at the new lego set inspired by four legendary female court justices, it’s unlikely that you will ever forget it.

Maia Weinstock, MIT news editor, created a lego set in honor of Women’s Day to salute the 4 female Supreme Court Justices: with Sandra Day O’Connor (1981), Ruth Bader Ginsburg (1993), Sonia Sotomayor (2009) and Elana Kagan (2010), as reported by the Forward.

Maia Weinstock, who posted the entire photo album on Flickr, dedicated the Lego set to celebrating women’s contribution to the Supreme Court. She writes on the website, “For 192 years, the constitutionality of the United States law was decided by men alone, ” until 1981 when President nominated Sandra Day O’Connor.

In addition to the lego figures dressed in judicial robes individual touches, like Justice Ginsburg’s signature white collar, there are sets including a Supreme Court replica and a SCOTUS library where the figures can “converse” and research cases.

Perhaps boys and girls will be inspired to don a judicial robe someday because they played with Weinstock’s Supreme Court Justice lego set. Stranger things have happened; lego sets cause kids to want to be Batman or Spiderman.
