I persume everyones notice Lego's lack in ethnic groups. Which needs to change.
Nintendo has alot of ethnic characters in Pokémon X and Y. Samus's boyfriend is an african american.
DC and Marvel have got alot more ethnic characters like Katana, Shang-Chi, John Stewart, Vixen, Falcon.
Figures like Guard (Super Heroes) are made cacasian when they could be asian/african american and give much needed diversity to LEGO.
LEGO accutally have had asian minifigures yet I doubt alot of you have noticed, due to them looking so white.In fairness theres only three of them which could be another reason you didn't spot them The only difference is their eyes are slightly more narrow; Short Round and the Shanghai gansters. Also in LEGO City Undercover theres Chan Chuang whos just a regular minifigure with an asian name/voice actor.
There is no asian minidolls in friends, theres sevreal african americans but no asians. It will be curios to see what they do with Mulan, in the Disney Princess theme.
DUPLO no longer makes asian figures since that asian family set. Which needs to be undone. Asian children play with DUPLO too!
Asian figures that should be made Edit
Katanna is a main character in Beware of the Batman, so why not? Mulan, Li Shang(her love intrest) and some asian mini-dolls to go with the Disney Princess and Friends themes.
African Americans Edit
=== minifigures ===Lego has realsed some african american figures , theres more african americans then there is asians. But there still is very little figures: Mace Windu, Tonto, Red Knee,Chief Big Bear, and Nick Fury and Stass Allie are the only 3 realsed since 2010 I belive correct me if I'm wrong. The Lone Ranger has the most ammout of african american minifigures at 3. Woo? Stass Allie is the only african american physical minifigure LEGO has, and her eyes are purple! Unless your take out the sharpie and colour the eyes its hard to make her blend in. Those eyes stick out like a sore thumb. LEGO have not made white tiger or power man into minifigures which is annoying as they made the rest of the ultimate spiderman theme.
There is sevreal coloured minidolls, Andrea, Matthew, Kate, Ella ect. Andrea appears in the least ammount of sets out of the main friends though. She also has the least ammount of variations. Which is extremely fustrating. Friends those have the most ammount of african american figures in LEGO. It also is one of the most diveresed girls toys I've ever seen. Usally we get one african american and thats it.
African American figures that should be made Edit
Tiana has to be made, shes probally the most iconic female African American cartoon character today. Pocahontas is cool and its where ive got my title from.Storm hopefully is going to be made physical in the TBA X-Men Set(s). White Tiger and Power man need to be made. John Stewart, Cyborg, Martian Manhunter's john jones appearance are also good opitions.
So Long Edit
I suggest supporting this blog on cuusso: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/17990 if you have an account, and hopefully we'll get some figures.
