Lego Custom minifig engraving and printing

Lego Custom minifig engraving and printing

Whilst this image really doesn’t do this justice, you have to look at a larger image to really appreciate what is so unique about the images on theses Lego minifigs. When you do however you’ll notice that the images on these Lego custom minifigs are actually engraved rather than decals, pictures on the slab like magazines are photo printed directly onto the Lego surface, which is why there is so much detail and I think they look great, however I’m still unsure how long lasting printing directly onto Lego would be, after all you’d need a special kind of ink to keep it on the Lego surface. Definitely worth checking out if you can, and ignore the poor quality site. Check out  brickengraver.com here.

Lego Custom minifig light up head

Lego Custom minifig light up head

Check out this Lego custom minifig head, the eyes and mouth were cut out and an LED inserted in to the  Lego custom minifig head, the LED is then powered by a small battery that would fit inside the torse of a Lego custom minifig, it’s very effective and could really enhance a Lego vignette, but it would also limit how much you could do with the Lego custom minifig after this modification.

Lego Car

Lego Car

Its easy to get carried away being a fan of Lego, but some Lego fans take it a little too far, take this example,  this care is totally covered in real Lego bricks, not stickers, but the actual solid bricks, you can tell these are real bricks ehn you look at the edges. It looks really cool, but I have to admit, there is something a little too obsessive about it, if it were just a sticker it wouldn’t be so obessive, but then it wouldn’t have that wow factor.I suppose whilst its cool there is the safetly factor of having so much plastic on a car, surely it could all melt.

The news is full of interesting and funny stories, George Bush getting a shoe thrown at him for example. so no surprise that eventually  some custom minifig maker would make a George W Bush Lego custom minifig with a Lego shoe being directed at him.Nice to know that Lgo fans have a sense of humour.

Lego Star Wars Custom Minifig Planet Hoth Vignette

Yes, yes, I know this is the second vignette I’ve written about on custom minifig, but lets be clear these Lego vingettes are pretty darn impressive, take this Lego Star Wars Custom Minifig Planet Hoth Vignette by Brick plumber, talk  about dedication and artistic prowess. It’s 5 feet by 10 feet large, and has over 60,000 Lego pieces, took 4 years to make and recently won a star wars building challenge and got featured in the Lego magazine. Pretty impressive.

Despite the scale the details within the vignette are equally impressive, there are 50 real lights, and some remote controlled mechanism, that allows that AT-ATs to deploy Lego minifig storm troopers.
