Part of customizing Lego minifigs is customizing the Lego accessories that the minifig uses, these minifig accessory customizations can be really bold and obvious, or more subtle like this minifig mobile phone with retractable antenna, it’s a simple custom job but tells more about the minifig and makes the minifig more interesting and unique.

This photo is awesome, not just from an artistic perspective but also from the contents, here we see an amazing stack of Lego minifig scale helmets and the structure of the inside of the helmets, Lego military helmets like the one shown are really popular with custom minifig builders who create world war 2 vignettes. Brickarms and Brick forge supply a good range of Lego headgear for several time periods, including roman, world war 1, world war 2 and modern. Additionally there are the usual fantasy and sci-fi genres as well.

Minifig helmets add an extra level of customization and personality to a custom minifig which should at least be considered when you’re designing your custom minifig.

Decals and colour add personality and uniqueness to minifigs, they help bring out the story telling effect of minifigs, however flat colour minifigs seem more artistic, statue like if you will, however, in their faceless nature flat colour minifigs are really cool, they speak volumes for the shape and form of the minfig rather than express personality. As such using flat colour minifigs can be really powerful especially in a photographic and architectural/artistic way.
