According to Wochit Entertainment, Lego finally revealed its first ever adult minifigure in a wheelchair at the Nuremburg and London toy fairs this week.

While the company had previously promoted a similar toy in July as part of their Community People’s set, consumers weren’t pleased because that version featured a senior citizen in a wheelchair.

Lego’s new figure is younger, hipper and seemingly pretty happy with life.

While it’s not possible to peer into the soul of a Lego minifigure, it seems to have satisfied some activists.

Organizers from the #ToyLikeMe campaign, which lobbied Lego to include more figures with disabilities, have voiced their support for the new character.
