ChromeBricks is a longstanding Bricklink store that sells custom chromed Lego elements. I reviewed a sample of their products several years ago, and I recently received some of their new items for a review. Below is a video of the review along with a summary of pros and cons.
- Flawless quality of chrome paint. I love the deep shade of chrome red.
- Same clutch strength when used with regular Lego elements.
- Two-toned chrome weapons are unique and awesome.
- Underlying color of Lego element has similar color to chrome paint.
- Chrome parts are expensive due to their quality and cost of production.
- Connections between minifigure parts and accessories are tight, requiring effort to swap.
In conclusion, ChromeBricks offers top quality chrome elements for those with a budget for them. Their crimson red chrome is eye-catching and their unique two-toned weapons are outstanding. The tight connections between their chromed minifigure parts might diminish the play value, but I suspect most buyers will not subject them to heavy use.
