Matthew Ashton has created a beautifully simple Lego set called ‘Everyone Is Awesome’.
“I wanted to create a model that is a symbol of inclusivity, that celebrates everyone, no matter how they identify or who they love. Everyone is unique, and with a little more love, acceptance and understanding in the world, we can all feel free to be our true AWESOME selves.”
The set really captures the message well. The pieces are not gender defined and this promotes the message of individuality. The range of colours celebrates the importance of acceptance and inclusion perfectly.
I’ll be honest, although I might take the set into school to display to celebrate the equality message, I bought the set for the monochrome minifigures. I have been collecting monochromes for about a year now, adding a new one to my collection every so often. This set adds four new ones to my collection – the light blue being my new favourite. The side effect of this set being released will be that the prices of these figures will now increase as more people get into the hobby.
The set itself was a nice relaxing build, requiring around half an hour to complete.
For £31 it is well worth purchasing!
