Yes, the first official look and review of the LEGO Ideas Research Institute comes fittingly from its creator, Ellen Kooijman (aka Alatariel Elensar). The set stays very true to it’s original design and most of the changes seem quite well received from its creator, based on her review. I look forward to getting a couple copies of this set and hope it sells well, encouraging further inclusion of female minifigures in regular LEGO sets and more non-licensed sets from LEGO Ideas.

Head on over to Ellen’s blog and read her impressions of the set firsthand.
