Ming-Na Wen – who’s probably best known outside Star Wars for her roles in Mulan, Mulan II and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – commented on Brick Fanatics’ images of the brand new Fennec Shand minifigure, which comes exclusively in the newly-revealed 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser.
Shand’s new helmet is surely one of the highlights of 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser – as you can read in our review here – but it’s true that an alternative hairpiece would really have rounded out the minifigure. We do see the character take off her helmet in the show, after all.
As mentioned in the replies to Wen’s tweet, however, there are already some pretty suitable options for Fennec’s hair among the LEGO Group’s existing element library. You can check out those recommendations – one of which hails from the Star Wars theme – here and here.
This isn’t the first time one of Wen’s characters has been adapted into the LEGO aesthetic: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Melinda May popped up in an add-on pack for the LEGO Marvel’s Avengers video game all the way back in 2016. But as the LEGO Group decided to skip that series for its physical sets, this is the first time any of her characters has been produced in plastic.
