Here’s a quick snap shot of some of the soon to be released minfigs from the space police set,the things that really stand out are the new half torso, alien head, and some new helmets which seem to be very manga/japanese influenced, just imagine all the cool customizations you could have with these. The decals seem pretty cool too.

Check out this really interesting, if not ackward arm posing techique which gives a minifig a little bit more arm movement, even better it uses standard and easy to acquire Lego parts and is a really easy modification.

How to remove decals from Lego minifigs

Whilst Lego minifigs come in all sorts of colours, if you want to add your own decals you have two choices, one, is to use stickers which is pretty straight forwards and keeps the existing lego decal on the minifigs.

The better, or at least more professional looking way, is to use water slide decals, however because most Lego minifigs now have decals printed on their torsos, you’ll need to first remove this.

Here’s how to remove decals from a Lego minifig:

What you’ll need:

1. Brasso
2. water
3. cloth – eg the type you use to clean glasses with
4. Q tip
5. tooth pick.
6. soap

Brasso is a Micro abrasive cleaner, usually used to polish silver, so the usual precautions apply, make sure you read the instructions before using it on your minifigs, and make sure you clean your minifigs afterwards.

1. use a small quantity of Brasso (about the size of a coin) on to your paper towel or cloth.
2. Rub Lego element or minifig part vigorously against cloth containing the Brasso.  Apply more
Brasso if necessary. Removing the printing from a torso should take 15 seconds to 1 minute depending on how much elbow grease one uses.
3. Once the original print has been removed, wash the piece with soap and water, making sure to
remove any residual Brasso, and then allow the part to dry.
4. smaller parts you can use a tooth pick or qtip to apply the brasso.

RAMM 1st Aufklärung Trupp custom minifigs

There’s two movements in minifig customization, thoses that believe it’s ok to cut and modify standard Lego, and even use other parts to customize Lego, and those that believe is keeping everything Lego based, neither is correct, rather its a preference, the bottom line is that you can use either ‘school’ to create interesting and unique custom minifigs, that this RAMM, 1st Aufklärung Trupp, its a purist piece, ie. made only from Lego parts,but the minifigs are not only really cool, each is unique from the other. Better yet this is a good example of how to make a group of uniformed custom minifigs different from each other whilst keeping the theme together. Point to note even the custom minifig weapons are made from existing Lego parts, in particular the weapons from the Star Wars minifigs.

Custom Lego minifigs look really cool on their own, but armies of custom minifigs look really impressive, here we can see an entire division of Battlestar Galactica Cylon custom minifigs, with custom headpieces that were individually modified and painted, it looks impressive to say the least.
