You can buy LEGO race car drivers, LEGO princesses, LEGO pirates, and even LEGO superheroes. So why not LEGO Supreme Court Justices? Artist Maia Weinstock thought they'd be the perfect role models for kids–especially girls–and made her own Legal Justice League.

She customized four LEGO mini-figures to represent the four women who have served on the Supreme Court: Sandra Day O'Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan. They're decked out in their robes, and they even have little accessories like gavels, newspapers, coffee cups, and—of course—RBG's signature fancy collar.

"For International Women's Day, I decided to focus on the first four women who've reached the highest level of our judiciary system," Weinstock told Makers. "All of these women are trailblazers who should be celebrated—not only by adults but by kids just learning about civics and government."

But sadly, you won't see the Supreme Court set at toy stores any time soon. According to Weinstock's website, the idea was submitted to LEGO and the company rejected it, saying it violates their "no politics or political symbols" rule.
