I don't think construction is a gendered thing as much as it's a LEGO thing. I would guess that anybody who's into LEGO in general, regardless of gender, is also into construction-related stuff in general. It's a direction I wish LEGO would explore more; kids who like LEGO are kids who would also like scenarios based around people who make stuff.

Do you remember the old belville figures with their 37 million points of articulation? I remember they were described as the most expensive action figures ever produced. Adding points of articulation at LEGO's specifications for manufacturing quality is hugely expensive, from an engineering standpoint they were really cool but from a cost/benefit standpoint they were a disaster.

Yeah, I'm kind of disappointed that we haven't seen as many of the former as the latter, despite Warhead's diligent contributions to the field. There are whole regions of dumbness yet to be fully explored.
