This is a totally collectable Gold C3PO one of only 10,000 C3PO Lego minifigs to have been casted, whilst its not a custom minifig, it does show how different casting material can make a real difference to a minifig, and admit it, its pretty darn cool. The collectable Gold C3PO was randomly inserted into selected Lego Sets and is now said to be worth over $200, pretty impressive for an inch tall minifig.

This custom minifig hods a custom made unique and minifig scale fire extinguisher, Lego have previously created standard fire extimguishers for minifgs, but this custom one is more aestetically unique and far my dynamic, it adds a little bit more to a scene than simply using the standard minifig fire extinguisher from Lego

Part of customizing Lego minifigs is customizing the Lego accessories that the minifig uses, these minifig accessory customizations can be really bold and obvious, or more subtle like this minifig mobile phone with retractable antenna, itâ€™s a simple custom job but tells more about the minifig and makes the minifig more interesting and unique.

(Lego minifig helmets by unknown)
This photo is awesome, not just from an artistic perspective but also from the contents, here we see an amazing stack of Lego minifig scale helmets and the structure of the inside of the helmets, Lego military helmets like the one shown are really popular with custom minifig builders who create world war 2 vignettes. Brickarms and Brick forge supply a good range of Lego headgear for several time periods, including roman, world war 1, world war 2 and modern. Additionally there are the usual fantasy and sci-fi genres as well.
Minifig helmets add an extra level of customization and personality to a custom minifig which should at least be considered when you’re designing your custom minifig.
