Congrats to LegoHaulic who was interviewed not just by the Sun but also the Telegraph for his superb custom minifigs based on famous movie characters. Better still we beat the broadsheets to this as we’d blogged about these custom minifigs from Legohaulic a month ago. ;)

Nevertheless its great that minifig customization is finally getting the press it deserves which will no doubt help support the custom minifig community in the UK which is still very small.

New Brick Arms Prototype time bomb

Here’s the latest Brickarms prototype which is due to be unveiled at Brickfest.
• The Timer is removable (with effort)
• It fits in a standard Lego briefcase
• It it recessed underneath to allow attachment to a standard LEGO stud (Ian says “Like on the side of a boat, for demolitions!)”

I can see the UK media kicking up a real fuss about this after all the noise they made over the Brick arms custom minifig terrorist.

Check out the new space police Lego minifigs, to be launched in august 2009, apparently, they won’t be launching this line in the UK for some reason, which is a real shame as there are some fantastic minifigs to be had and they look really cool.

so after a really, really long and non-stop two months, we’re going on a short vacation on friday, we’ll be trying to update you sporadically whilst on the road, but as you’d expect this may or may not happen, we’ll be back and blogging about custom minifigs before the end of next week, but whilst we’re offline, why not check out our forum, and meet other like minded custom minifig makers, and don’t forget there is a prize for the top poster!

Android 17 Dragon Ballz custom minifig

Android 17 Dragon Ballz custom minifig by NickGreat :)

The quality of finish and attention to detail as well as the ‘ergonomic’ considerations of these Dragon Ballz custom minifigs by Nick are brilliant, the are so precise, take the Hairline on the minifigs head gear for example, if perfectly finished even though its a customized  standard legopart, next have a look at how well it fits to the minifigs head, its just right. Next have a look at the holster, thats perfectly fitted, any thicker and it would have made the minifig disproportionate, its this kind of care and precision that makes these minifigs so high quality even though they are actually hand crafted custom minifigs.
