Lego Banksy Decal

Lego Banksy Decal

(Lego banksey decal by dpstyles)

Banksy is a popular street graffiti artist primarily popular in the UK, whats really great about Lego and custom minifig is the way that Lego reflects the real world and this Lego Banksy decal, placed on a Lego wall is the perfect scaled down version, and seems perfect for the Lego environment, the key thing to remember here is that this shows the level of detail and the potential of using custom minifig decals in your Lego projects.

collectable Lego catalogue book

collectable Lego catalogue book

This boxed collectable Lego catalogue book is one of only 3333 copies that will ever be produced, so you can guess that these are highly sought after, it contains listings for every Lego set ever produced since 1958, and is amazingly extensive. the collectable Lego catalogue book was released in summer 2008 and has already since gone out of stock, not lease due to the collectable minifig, Lego fan brick and siver collectors brick. Fantasia Verlag GmbH are the german publishers of the book and is over 800 pages long, and contains 8.000 colour photographs of Lego sets along with additional information usch as the number of components the sets are made of. The Book iteself is a little more obtainable, but for the special collector edition, you’ll have to hunt ebay to get one.

Non-Lego accessories

These have been making the rounds through the custom minifig community, and Jasbrick is a big fan of making these look really good on his minifigs (apparently he gets then from wilkos) these custom minifig accessories are from a Korean Lego clone brand called Sluban, but they seem to be difficult to get ahold of, still whilst the quality isn’t as good as Lego, these make great custom minifig accessories, especially for those trying to do modern military or police minifigs.

The chest vest is pretty good, but the beret is a tad bit oversized, the Gas mask is pretty good and fairly well proportioned, and I beleive these guys also produce a custom minifig M1 helmet as well.

Brick arms NEW Lego custom minifig weapons

Brick arms NEW Lego custom minifig weapons

Here’s the latest custom minifig weapons released by Brick Arms, personally they aren’t really my cup of tea, but that is probably because I don’t really do much when it comes to space/scifi custom Lego minifigs, I how that this isn’t the direction Brick Arms are going to be taking their custom minifig weapons as a result of the press attention they got from the UK media.

Suffice to say the quality and finish on these custom minifigs is what you would expect from Brick Arms.
