Now this is the way to store minifigs, and whilst there are no custom minifigs here, you have to admit this is one hell of a MOC, its immense, just look at the sofa in the background! and this MOC can store well over 100 minifigs, as well as 4 transports, including the MTT Lego set and all the minifigs that come with that! This is literally an army of minifigs in a MOC the size of a house pet! Impressive.

I really like the custom made decal used on this minifig, I’m guessing the original decal was left in place and the custom one overlayed on top, it gives this minifig a more unique appreance and adds so action to the otherwise clean and prestine clone trooper.

The star wars lego series was one of the most popular Lego ranges, and very widely supported by the cult of starwars fans, who, as it so happens are also Lego fans, the Lego Star wars range is also one of the best for minifigs, with a whole catalogue of easily customizable and interesting minifigs being released as a result of the 6 films, 1 animation and countless comics, as a result making starwars custom minifigs is almost a seperate catagory, and as this image of a custom made minifig head, made out of various Lego parts, proves, there’s no shortage of talent when it comes to making yet more unique minifigs on the star wars theme.

this custom minifig has some really impressive decals from Fine Clonier on it, it seems that one of the largest niche’s in minifig customization is within starwars lego minifigs, a good move from Lego there! more impressively virtually all the custom starwars minifigs I’ve seen are finished to a really high standard and this custom Lego storm trooper scout minifig is no exception, the only gripe I have is that the decal might be a bit too detailed, meaning that it may not be as good looking from afar.

Lego Minifigs for military vignettes

Whilst for most of use who make custom minifigs the dream would be either Lego actually make military collections, or we can get our hands on some durable minifigs with custom decals, the reality is getting decent military themed minifigs is quite difficult, you need to really plan out what you want to acheive, since the Indiana Jones collection does have some Lego minifigs with a Military theme, and StarWars has a whole range of storm troopers, its not so difficult for sci-fi or WWII custom minifig makers. But if you’re hopeing to make something modern, get ready to do some serious hunting.

so Lets take a look a the themes that work for military vignettes:

Cowboys – Lego Cowboy theme

Knights and castles – Lego theme

WWII – Indiana Jones Russian and German soldier minifigs

Modern – Dino Attack (these are now out of production so you’re going to need to source these), Power Miners Lego themes.

Sci-fi – Lego Starwars theme.

You’ll find that in order to build up a large army of minifigs, you’ll either need to buy loads of sets of Lego, leaving you with plenty of potentially useless spare parts and costing you an arm and a leg, or, you’ll need to search on the second hand Lego community to find individual parts, in this instance you’ll need to potentially  buy the minifig in seperate parts, ie legs seperate from arms, torso seperate from head etc, this can add to the cost, but you’ll be able to get exactly what you need.

In other instances you might have designed a custom decal for your Lego minifigs, your best bet here is to source the lego minifig whos plastic is as close to the base colour you want, then, using brasso remove the existing decal and apply your own one instead, this might take longer and costa bit, but the results are supurb.
