(COD World at War Marine Raider custom minifig by Dylan B)
Whist the photo of this minifig isnâ€™t too great and the decals are paper and not too great, this custom minifig does have some really strong qualities, the minifig has a Brick Arms Thompson, and a Brick Arms helmet, more unique however is the webbing made of brown plastic, Iâ€™ve never seen this before and can only assume itâ€™s a custom part that was hand moulded. Additionally the decal is basically too ornate, this is why it isnâ€™t very effective and clear and really which youâ€™re considering custom decals for minifigs, the decals on this minifig stress that you need to simplify the design for it to be effective.
(clear lego minifig by fine clonier)
This transparent Blue custom minifig was made by Fine Clonier (know for custom minifig decals), apparently it was custom made, compression moulded based on the standard Lego minifig. Whats really cool is how a custom minifig builder could use such a transparent minifig, and the next step would be to see how custom decals could be used to give this transparent minifig more character, Tron fans and sci-fi minifig fans could have a field day with a transparent minifig like this. However to compression mould such a minifig could be quite difficult, whilst resin moulds might not give as good a quality of finish.
(chrome lego darth vader promo minifig from unknown)
Searching for other cool Lego custom minifigs I came across this chrome lego darth vader promo minifig, it seems to be a promotional minifig created by Lego to mark the 10 year anniversary of Lego Starwars, whilst the minifig and the decals on the minifig are no different from the Lego Darth Vader minifig, it is made of chrome, which gives the minifig a real shiny quality, Just look at the minifigs helmet.
(Batman minifig suit comparisonÂ by Lego Vaughan)
This nice vignette shows the evolution of the Batman minifig made by Lego, itâ€™s a really great photo of how Batman has been depicted by Lego as the Movie and character has evolved. Also, it shows how Legoâ€™s sophistication with their decals has progressed and become more defining.
(1st Battalion, Royal Tabnerian Rifles custom minifigs by david tabner)
There is a real movement amongst Lego custom minifig builders to create massive uniformed armies of custom minifigs, this is usually popular with Star Wars Lego minifig fans, and there are massive Clone minifig armies. This however is the 1st Battalion, Royal Tabnerian Rifles, an army of custom minifigs inspired by the Boer wars, some of the details you might notice are the pith helmets, brown shoulder epaulettes and crossed ammo pouches (from the tusken raider starwars Lego minifig) WhilstÂ all the pieces in these minfigsÂ are standard, you can consider them a custom minifig as they different Lego elements have been selected to create a new minifig.
