The Skater Girl helps increase the number of women in this line, something which has been increasing in recent years but still is on the low side. For a series of toys predominantly aimed at young boys, it's an interesting mix of features. A skull with a pink bow on her shirt recalls Mattel's Monster High, with her striped shirt's pink matching the packaging. It's too close to be a coincidence, but it sure as heck looks neat and is more than a tiny bit more stylish than the bulk of the toys in the line.
While other skaters and sports figures had helmets, the Skater Girl does not. (Bad role model, man.) She does have awesome black hair with a painted pink streak, a hoodie, and a nifty LEGO skull on her white skateboard. There's a logo of a heart with bat wings which also looks like it came out of the Monster High school of design, plus one of those belts all the kids get at the Hot Topic. Her outfit's design is quite clean and the detail is pretty fine, which is why it's nice I have a macro on my camera so I can get a good look at the stitching on her person. The simple design has far more detail than needed, which is always appreciated.
While young boys may not be as interested in this figure, I'll go out on a limb and assume girls and older boys will like this one. Perhaps boys may be reminded of that one girl in art class who was super cute and kinda dressed like that in high school but dated some other dude who went to another school which you knew was just code for her not being into you but you didn't take that personally at the time, did you? THANKS FOR NOTHING LEGO. ...where was I? Right, this is a good figure with a nice board with moving wheels, so go ahead and get her for your LEGO burg. Just keep her away from the LEGO high school because she might depress the LEGO Star Wars collectors and pioneering LEGO internet toy journalists.
