Star-gazing LEGO lovers can also construct the Space Shuttle Challenger and the Hubble Space telescope out of the beloved bricks.

The idea was first conceived by Maia Weinstock, an employee of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She submitted the concept to the LEGO ideas crowd-sourcing platform, where it swiftly-gained popularity among fellow fans and was selected for production.

LEGO fans can buy a set of their female space heroes for $24.99.
