whilst at first glance this looks like another insignificant custom job, with a standard minifig and a few well chosen accessories, take a look at the modified firemans helmet, if you’re at all short of cash and looking for an alternative to the clone M1 helmet going around this looks like a good solution.
SO our resident Exxtrooper has created a really cool video for custom minifig, i have to admit, he’s one of the most enthusiastic supporters of custom minifig, and you have to admire some of his custom minifigs too! Here’s the video.
Actually a pretty simple customization on this minifig, but i think its actually quite a powerful statement on the state of the UK at the moment, having the largest population of CCTV cameras in the world, the brits are a pretty paranoid bunce, or more accurately a pervy bunch, which is why this minifig is quite a powerful statement, i’d like to see graffiti stencils and tshirts made up of this character, called camedian, not because its an amazing custom minifig, but because it communicates a statement on todays big brother society.
I like the plain grey paint job on this custom minifig, as it brings out the masked face and gives the minifig an urban combat feel, it would be cool to have a hint of black camo but it still looks pretty good, the real unique part of this custom minifig however isn’t the standard lego parts, but the chest piece which has been modified to have two clips which attach a grenade and binoculars, the weapon is a custom job on a brickarms part and fits in will with the overall look.
here’s the back story on the minifig which is actually pretty good:
After a massive increase in crime on the City – planet of Coruscant. A new type of clone was devised to keep the streets safe. Introducing the Clone Raider! With a 36 Channel radio pack, advanced sight binocs, a thermo-electric stun grenade, and the ACS Auto Shotty, this clone will stop at nothing to keep the city safe!
you might argue this minifig is plain and too simple for customminifig.co.uk, but you have to remember this site is about all custom minifigs not just the supurb works of Jasbrick and Hazel, this minifig does have some strong qualities, the choice of parts and the addition of a brickarms pistol give it just as much reason to be celebrated as any other custom minifig.
