This lovely custom minifig vignette is simply wonderful, it depicts a Lego minifig underground bunker, along with a surface crew, the minifig vignette was divided in three parts with a gradual slope, the underground parts are made of three colours showing the layers of earth, there are some really nice details such as the fossil skeleton, the stalagmites and a smoke plume, The detail in the minifig quarters are also great with a  periscope and various machines made of Lego.

Minifig combinations

Part of sourcing minifigs as described Here, is being able to add character to a minifig army and create subtle variations that break up the uniform shape of the Lego minifig and customize them to a vignette or setting. The way that a Lego minifig is made (as mentioned Here) means that by combining a torso and arms piece with a different head or a different Lego, a new minifig can be created, additionally different decals can add to the already limitless combinations, giving a totally customized custom minifig real uniqueness.

Below you can see a photo of the 4 possible decaled Torsos from the dino attack Lego series, these minifig torsos are ideal for any one looking for military special forces style custom minifigs. There are also 4 different combination’s of Heads, two different minifig helmets and two different sets of arms, just considering the minifig heads and minifig torso you already have 16 different minifig combination’s, which is definitely worth considering when you’re customizing minifigs.

(Lego, custom, minifigs, film, characters by Legohaulic)

This is an awesome collection of custom minifigs I can accross on the web, the Lego custom minifigs shown here all use generic Lego minfig parts with the exception of BrickArms weapons, rubber bands and a Lego sticker for an eyepatch.

You can prombably make out The Terminator, Bruce Lee, Rambo and the Lone ranger amongst other. And whats really cool about this collection of minifigs is that it shows you can create some fantastic custom minfigs just by putting together the right combination of existing Lego minifig parts, you don’t have to get custom decals made up.

These two photos show how main stream media has clearly had an impact on the way Lego minfig builders have translated this into Lego, Steve Jobs is shown in the second photo with a minfig ipod, whilst the first photo shows a beautiful white minifig with the distinctive click wheel of the ipod as a decal on it. This actually speaks volumes about how to build custom minifigs, because Lego simplifies things, any custom parts also need to be simplified to the core basics to illustrate the object and make it recoginzable, if the object was to be designed too detailed it wouldn’t work well with Lego, if it was too simplified it wouldn’t be recognizable.
