LEGO Theme Week: Fashionable Ladies!

Welcome back to LEGO week here at Nachos Grande!  This particular post is light on baseball cards (only one) but a bit heavier on LEGO figures (two of 'em).  Enjoy!

As usual, we begin with the baseball card (this is a baseball card blog after all, my LEGO blog resides here).  This particular baseball card doesn't show a baseball player at all - in fact, it shows a lady in a fancy hat.  It is, however, from a baseball set - namely, the 2012 Topps Allen & Ginter set.

I've been slowly working on the Fashionable Ladies set (and the sister (brother?) set:  Men in Hats) for awhile - and I've made a bit of progress...
2012 Topps Allen & Ginter Wants:
N43:  
N43- 11, 14
Guys in Hats:  GH- 4, 5, 6, 7, 9
Fashionable Ladies:  2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10
Reg. back minis:  2, 11, 29, 34, 39, 42, 45, 91, 96, 97, 108, 127, 131, 135, 145, 156, 171, 181, 182, 189, 195, 197, 199, 203, 220, 221, 245, 262, 288, 289, 294, 295, 299 326, 336
Ad back minis:  206, 236
Black border minis:  13, 70, 74, 173, 325
Gold border minis:  12, 64, 70, 173, 206, 325
Murder in Willow Cove:  Trudy Givens
However, as usual if you have anything from my want list I'd love to work out a trade!

Moving on to the LEGO figures, we have TWO fashionable ladies (of sorts) to show off today.  The first is the Flamenco Dancer from Series 6.

The Dancer is rocking a long dress and holding her fan.  She even sports a fashionable red polka dotted dress - she's obviously dressed to impress.

The second fashionable lady is probably only fashionable if you are a big fan of NASA (or live on the moon or something).  It's the Intergalactic Girl (also from Series 6).  The space lady comes complete with a ray gun, a pink helmet, and a hair piece.

I think she's designed to be displayed with her hair piece on while holding her helmet (which she can't quite grasp perfectly unless you remove her visor).  However, she also looks pretty fashionable with her helmet on, the all pink getup is becoming on her.

That concludes the fashionable ladies portion of the trade, though it does not conclude the trade in its entirety.  In fact, stay tuned because there should be more goodies later on today!
