(Lego Street Performing Mime custom minifig by Erdbeereis1)
OK, so this isn’t as impressive as Jasbricks stuff or Hazels stuff, but lets face itÂ Lego minifig customization doesn’t need to be revolutionary or amazing, its about having fun and experimenting with Lego and exploring potential, which is why this vignette of a Lego Street Performing Mime custom minifig is really nice, just a different coloured torse and arms and a unique Lego head and voia la! cool looking minifig.
Jasbrick has created a few more custom minfigs for his on going Brickviet custom minifig series, with a really strom sci-fi and russian influence, these custom minifigs are fantastic.
This custom minifig has a brilliant russian hand, chest piece and cigar, theres alot of cutting and modding to make such a custom minifig but i think you’ll agree its very distinct, the weapons are naturally Brick Arms, as for the minifig head, i’m unsure if its custom or a standard lego piece, certainly the coat rounds off the custom minifig really well.
I really like the creativity in this custom minifig, which is a minigunner from Jasbricks Brickviet custom minifig series, the eyepiece looks like it was a cut off part of the Lego oil can, and the ammo box on the Brick ArmsÂ weapon is a single Lego clip piece, the chest piece is from a Lego clone company calle sluban, that has then been modified for these custom minifigs.
This is something really different from Jasbrick, I’m guessing its something of a new project, I really like the chestpiece and the alterations to the helmet
