BrickArms are one of the most popular online custom minifig accessory manufacturers online, they specialize in producing (relatively) realistic looking military weapons for Lego minifigs and are a pride of place for many minifig collectors due, not least to their high quality finish and strong sense of design. They partnered up with Minifigforlife who are responsible for their UK distribution and marketing.
BrickArms was the brain child of Will Chapman from Richmond WA, and since 2006 has produced a range of over 31 highly collectible weapons, made from ABS plastic, the same type of plastic Lego use. More recently BrickArms caught the attention of the UK media when one of the (small collection of) complete Lego Mini Figures they produced was ‘picked on’ by a reporter from The Sun who clamed the offending Lego minifig named BrickArms Bandit – Mr. White was ‘Osama Bin Lego’, if anything however, the press who clearly didn’t have much to write about that day, actually boosted the sales for BrickArms as their forum suggest, and since the release of this press BrickArms have been so inundated with orders that they had to close shop early for christmas just so they could catch up on orders of various minifigs and minifig weapons.
