Fake LEGO Super Heroes Minifigures

Fake LEGO Super Heroes Minifigures

A Chinese company had started to flood ebay with fake LEGO DC and Marvel Super Heroes minifigures which come in packaged boxes. Please be aware that LEGO do not sell individual Super Heroes minifigures unless they are in polybags.

The print quality and plastic is very poor quality, which is reflected in the price. They can be easily identified as LEGO fakes by their feet which are shaped.

They have currently made Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Superman, Spider-Man and Batman. Counterfeits are illegal, so I would expect LEGO to take the appropriate action.

2013 And Beyond

2012 was an amazing year with many ups and downs for our site, for several months we were targeted by Malware attackers leading the site to be down every couple of weeks.

In my opinion the LEGO mininfigure customizing community, had its best year ever in 2012 and things are only going to get better. We are seeing more customizers and better quality than ever before, so I’m really looking forward to 2013.

We had an incredible 729,211 different people come to our site in 2012, totalling 1,069,420 vists and viewing a staggering 4,319,936 pages. So Custom Minifig is still the place the see all the best custom’s, and latest news from all the third party custom LEGO suppliers.

For 2013 we would love our readers to get more involved. Visit our Facebook page and say hello, tag us to your new customs via Flickr, and we would love you to comment on all the custom minifigures we review.

In the comments please tell us which features you would like to see on this site that we may not have mentioned before but you think would benefit everyone. Would you like to see more interviews, guides, MOC’s, sneak previews and even a return of the Custom Minifigure Disasters?

We would like to thank you for using the website in 2012 and hope you stick with us in 2013!
