"Lego will sell its first mini-figure in a wheelchair later this year, a company spokesman confirmed.

The addition follows online petitions and calls for Lego and other major toymakers to provide positive depictions of those with disabilities.

“We’ve got genuine tears of joy right now,” #ToyLikeMe organizer Rebecca Atkinson wrote. Her London-based Change.org petition calling for mini-figures with disabilities has received more than 20,000 signatures.

Photos of the new Lego figure emerged online following the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Germany."

Niel,

I just googled lego x men, and see that one of the characters (Professor X?) is in a wheelchair. Just a guess, but it seems as though the wheelchair for Professor X is built with pieces of lego. However, the new wheelchair is a single component (aside from the front wheels, judging from the picture).

Just a guess. I'm out-of-date when it comes to toys.
