custom Canadian Rifle Squad Minifigs

Originally uploaded by Aaron Morse

I really am starting to like WWII minifigs, they brilliant to make and offer a whole range of customization opportunities, these Canadian trooper custom minifigs are a good example, the captain has a pair of binoculars hanging from his neck buy using a Lego accessory, the helmets are all custom made, each minifig has a different face, and the decals on the minifigs torso look custom, whilst the legs are from the Lego Indiana Jones minifig.

Custom Shotgun and minifig

Check this out, it’s not jsut a custom shotgun for minifigs, but like a shot gun it actually bends allowing the minifig to put little shots into the shotgun, i reckon this is awesome and shows just how far minifig customization has come.

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├é┬á 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.

Corporation HALO Specialist custom minifig

(Corporation HALO Specialist custom minifig by jasbrick)

Jasbrick has done it again, this is by far one of the best custom minifigs I’ve seen, the mask is modified, the helmet is modified, the chest piece is Sluban, and modified, the weapons are Brick arms and the rifle is modified, what I really like in particular is the backback and emergency chute on the custom minifig, its brilliant, all I can hope is that Jasbrick will find the time to a. get me one of these, and b. make an ebook on how these are made.

A Lego Minifig I’d like to see

I’ve got a new project aside from my Lego British Army custom minifig chess set, I’ve seen this image around (see below) quite a few times, and I’d love to to create a custom Lego minfig of it, so this weekend i’m out to get some greenstuff and milliput and start creating a custom minifig Jin-Roh or Helghast troops, these guys are awesome, and I reckon with some brick arms custom minifig accessories and a few sluban minifig helmets I’ll be able to pull off a few of thes, I’ll probably use blank black minifigs for this one and get some fabric parts too.

Interestingly there is a Kubrick Jin-Roh, which I’m hoping to get my hands on for this as well, I’m sure there’ll be a few ideas that will transfer accross to a custom Lego minifig.
