(Mr Black Custom minifig By Brick Arms)
After the resounding success of Mr White, the Brick Arms custom minifig Bandit, that was slated by the worlds media for being a racist Lego minifig against Islamic terrorist, Brick Arms have now launched a new Minifig bandit – Mr Black, there’s no major difference between the two custom minifigs aside from the face and colour of the ninja headgear. Now considering this custom minifigs face is so hairy, i’m sure some media zealot will be calling it a terrorist from the Mumbai after the terrorist attacks there, I’m sure this isn’t the case.

This is a wonderful vignette which shows a custom minifig commando raiding party with Brick arms custom minifig weapons, Lego diving accessories and a Lego minifig scale raft, whatâ€™s really nice is the construction of the waves in the vignette which give both the setting and the minifigs a more dramatic appearance.

This wonderful timeline tracks the progression of Lego from its initial inception in 1932 as a Business concept to the 1958 invention of the Lego brick with it unique and patented Stud and Tube coupling system. Along the way Is the 1978 invention of the first Lego Minifig which eventually spawned the custom minifig movement and the 1999 launch of the Lego Star Wars range, possibly one of the most successful Lego ranges.
Making Lego is fun, and building custom minifigs is great, but to truly harness the power of Lego, more sophisticated Lego building techniques need to be used. These techniques allow Lego builders to create far more dynamic and interesting models, and some of these Lego building techniques related to custom minifigs as well. Here’s a few useful Links relating to advanced Lego building techniques.
(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.
