DC Universe Custom Minifigures

Super Heroes minifigures are hugely popular at the moment and UK custom minifigure designers Green Pea Toys have just released a number of new DC Universe custom minifigs which include The Punisher, Brainiac, and Deathstroke.

The Punisher Custom Minifigure

The Punisher Custom Minifigure is printed on the head, torso and legs and comes with two nice guns. The torso printing of the skull is pretty cool.  I know a lot of people will say this minifigure is not as good as Christo’s however it is half the price!

Brianiac Custom Minifigure

This Brianiac Custom Minifigure comes with head, torso and leg printing as is the best custom Brianiac I have seen so far. If you are a fan of DC Universe this is definitely one to add to your collection!

Deathstroke Custom Minifigure

This Deathstroke Custom Minifigure is inspired by the comics rather than the new Arrow TV series. He is definitely one colourful minifigure!

Super Heroes Custom Minifigures

When LEGO released the 4 exclusive Super Heroes minifigures at the San Diego Comic Con in July 2012 as part of a free giveaway. There was only 1,000 each of DC Universe’s Bizarro and Shazam and Marvel Super Heroes Venom and Phoenix. A year before in 2011 they had released the exclusive Batman and Green Lantern minifigures.

This left quite a number of Super Heroes minifigure collectors disheartened as these minifigures sell for about £150 each on ebay, which meant they were far too expensive to collect. A number of custom minifigure designers have released their own versions of these minifigures but many are very low quality.

We were happy to see that Green Pea Toys have released 3 of these exclusive minifigures and the quality is pretty good. We have taken a photograph with the original minifigures so you can compare the difference.

Bizarro Custom Minifigure (left)

The Bizarro Custom Minifigure has a different coloured cape, but same hair piece. The black muscle lines are a bit darker, however we prefer the custom face to the original.

Green Lantern Custom Minifigure (left)

The Green Lantern Custom Minifigure has the same hair piece as the original, however the face is a lot different and not as good. The green torso is a lighter colour which is more in keeping with the comic books.

Shazam Custom Minifigure (left)

The Shazam Custom Minifigure comes with the same hair piece, and the torso print has darker muscle printing, and a lighter lightning bolt. Once more we prefer the face on the custom minifigure.

If you don’t mind having some custom minifigures in your LEGO collection then these are an affordable replacement for the originals.

Darth Plagueis Custom Minifigure

Darth Plagueis is a novel by James Luceno that tells the back story of Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Plagueis.

Darth Sidious is Plagueis’s chosen apprentice and under the guidance of his Master, he secretly studies the ways of the Sith, while publicly rising to power in the galactic government, first as Senator, then as Chancellor, and eventually as Emperor.

Overall on the minifig? I’ll give it 8/10. The decals are amazing and machine printed, especially the face, however Darth Plagueis has a long face, but pretty hard to do that with LEGO. The navy, and black printed armour on the torso and legs is great quality. Darth Plagueis comes with a red lightsaber.

SWTOR Sith Custom Minifigures

If you are a fan of SWTOR multiplayer online role-playing game or have seen the SWTOR theatrical trailers then you will instantly recognise some of these custom minifigures from the Sith Empire made by Green Pea Toys. We have also reviewed the SWTOR Jedi Custom Minifigures.

Malgus and his Master Vindican had led the victorious recapture of the Sith world Korriban, before the former struck down the latter for being injured at the hands of Jedi Master Kao Cen Darach. At the height of the war, Malgus led a surprise assault on the Core World of Alderaan; though initially successful, Malgus and his forces were defeated in a concentrated Republic counterattack led by his nemesis from Korriban, future Grand Master Satele Shan.

Malgus was chosen by his superior Darth Angral to participate in the attack on Coruscant as the leader of a strike team that would invade the Jedi Temple. By the end of the engagement, the Sith had destroyed the Jedi Temple, killed half of the members of the Jedi High Council, and disgraced the Jedi Order in the eyes of the Republic.

Overall on the minifig? I’ll give it 8/10 although not as good as the offilcial LEGO minifigure. The decals are amazing and machine printed, especially the face, and it’s the best custom Darth Malgus minifigure I have seen. The torso is great with a very nice finish and the shoulder pads really set the minifig off.

A female Rutian Twi’lek, Eleena Daru was the lover of the Sith Lord Darth Malgus during the Great Galactic War. During the Sacking of Coruscant, she was incapacitated when Jedi Master Ven Zallow used the Force to push her into a pillar.

Darth Malgus, after exchanging with her some passionate and emotional words, killed Eleena, because she was his greatest weakness, and could be used against him. However, this death tore up Darth Malgus emotionally, to a point where he was constantly reminded of Eleena, which fed his anger. In death, she was his greatest strength.

Overall on the minifig? I’ll give it 8/10. The decals are amazing and machine printed, although the only criticism is that the colours on the torso look a bit washed out however this is still an amazing minifigure to add to your SWTOR collection which I doubt LEGO will ever release.

Bounty Hunter Shae Vizla is a great Star Wars custom minifigure from The Old Republic. A female Human Mandalorian Bounty Hunter she aided the Sith Empire during the Sacking of Coruscant. She infiltrated the Jedi Temple on Coruscant while Darth Malgus and Eleena Daru walked through the main entrance of the Temple. She killed several security guards using both a Blaster Pistol and Flamethrower during the battle.

Overall on the minifig? I’ll give it 9/10. The decals are high quality machine printed and amazing with a very nice finish. Unfortunately I wasn’t one of the lucky few to get the helmet which looks awesome spray painted and printed.

Lord Adraas was chosen by Darth Angral to lead fifty Sith warriors on board a stolen Republic shuttle for an attack on the Jedi Temple to aid Darth Malgus during the Sacking of Coruscant featured in the Star Wars The Old Republic book Deceived.

When Malgus retrieved his lover, Eleena Daru, he ordered Adraas to personally bring a medical team to tend to her wounds. Lord Adraas instead redirected her to a local hospital overtaken by Sith soldiers.

Upon leaving Coruscant, Darth Malgus cornered Adraas in his personal estate and overpowered him in a lightsaber duel. When Adraas tried to use Force lightning, Malgus laughed at him and used Force Lightning to tortured him and Adraas begged to be killed. Malgus removed his gloves, and killed Adraas with his own hands.

Overall on the minifig? I’ll give it 8/10. The decals are amazing and machine printed, especially the face. The only criticism is that the colours look a bit washed out however this is still an amazing minifigure which I doubt LEGO will ever release. Lord Adraas comes with black Vambraces, a red lightsaber, and a Force Lightning piece.

Darth Angral was a Human male Sith Lord in Star Wars The Old Republic and known across the galaxy for his lust for blood, he lead the Sacking of Coruscant and the killing of Supreme Chancellor Berooken.

Angral’s Sacking of Coruscant was supplemented by a smaller force, led by the Sith Lord Darth Malgus, which would assault the Jedi Temple directly before Angral arrived. Angral favored a young Lord named Adraas a rival of the Malgus and demanded that Adraas serve as Malgus second-in-command. The attack began when Malgus, accompanied by his Twi’lek slave and lover Eleena Daru, entered the temple to distract the Jedi within so that Adraas and fifty Sith Warriors could enter Coruscant airspace in their hijacked Republic drop ship safely, when Mandalorian Shae Vizla disabled the planet’s defense grid.

Overall on the Darth Angral Custom Minifigure? I’ll give it 6/10. The minifigure is machine printed so the quality is excellent, and he is a great addition to your Star Wars The Old Republic collection. The only negative comment would be this minifigure looks too happy to be a Sith Lord, however if you were to swap his head he would look great!

SWTOR Jedi Custom Minifigures

If you are a fan of SWTOR multiplayer online role-playing game or have seen the new Star Wars LEGO sets for 2012 then you will instantly recognise some of these custom minifigures made by Green Pea Toys.

Satele Shan is the voice and conscience of the Jedi Order in the times of The Old Republic. She is a direct descendant of Bastila Shan, the legendary Jedi who battled Darth Revan centuries ago.

Satele bravely fought against the resurgent Sith Empire when she was a Padawan, playing a key role in many major battles during the war. She rediscovered the long-lost world of Tython and helped found a new Jedi Temple there to replace the one destroyed on Coruscant.

Due to the difference in Satele’s appearance in the “Hope” cinematic trailer and “Threat of Peace”, it was initially doubted that they were the same person, however it was later officially confirmed.

Overall on the minifig? I’ll give it 8/10. The decals are high quality machine printed and amazing with a very nice finish, and comes with a double glow in the dark lightsaber. To make this minifig perfect I gave her some armour wrist bands.

Zabrak Kao Cen Darach was a Jedi Master during the years preceding the Great Galactic War in 3,681 BBY called The Old Republic. Darach was killed in battle with the Sith Lord Vindican and his apprentice, Malgus when he sacrificed himself so that his Padawan, Satele Shan was able to escape and warn the Galactic Republic of the Sith Empire’s return.

Overall on the minifig? I’ll give it 9/10. The decals are high quality machine printed and amazing with a very nice finish. To make this minifig perfect a Zabrak horned head piece would have been great.

Ven Zallow was a male member of the Jedi Order during the Great Galactic War. When a pair of Sith intruders Darth Malgus and Eleena Daru entered the Jedi Temple on the Republic capital of Coruscant, Master Zallow accompanied by his colleagues, confront the two. Zallow’s apprentice was called Aryn Leneer.

Overall on the minifig? I’ll give it 9/10. The decals are high quality machine printed and amazing with a very nice finish.
