Spring is upon us and the makers of custom accessories are coming out with more new items to tempt us! First up, BrickArms just released 10 new guns that run the gamut from World War II to Sci-Fi. Fans will be excited to see the E-11 and DL-44 come to production. Personally, I’m pretty excited Continue reading →
LEGO BrickForge models on The Brothers Brick
There have been so many new custom items coming out recently, it is almost overwhelming. I’ve been meaning to highlight several of these items and more of them keep coming out! First on the list is Guy Himber’s Crazy Arms. Guy sent me some of these awhile back but I never got pictures uploaded because Continue reading →
BrickForge has just released a batch of new custom accessories perfect for bounty hunters and scoundrels alike. They kindly sent me a batch of their latest custom accessories — a pleasant surprise in my mailbox this afternoon. I haven’t been doing too much minifig-building this past year, so I can’t necessarily promise a review before Continue reading →
As we say in our AFOL jargon glossary, purism is “a form of religious fundamentalism.” LEGO fandom includes a broad range of preferences for what’s “legal” and what’s not. In the spirit of broadening our horizons, we’re very pleased to bring you the first in a series of posts about LEGO minifig customization by master Continue reading →
We recently have received news about a number of new custom items so it seemed appropriate to cover them together. First off, I was sent a package of some new items from Brick-Warriors. The new items are high quality and fit well, as did the last batch that we reviewed. The new items represent a Continue reading →
One of the things I love about BrickForge is that they seem to be just ahead of what LEGO ends up producing — from cows, pigs, and crowbars a few years ago to 1×1 round tiles and park ranger hats in the upcoming 2012 LEGO City sets. Does The LEGO Group have a spy in Continue reading →
As readers will have noticed in our LEGO News feed last week, custom minifig accessory vendor BrickForge has just released a new batch of items, including a new “Shock Trooper” armor. We ordered a couple batches, and I managed to find enough sunshine in the Seattle “summer” to take a few pictures. The armor comes Continue reading →
In addition to the bottles and beakers unveiled at BrickFair, BrickForge has just announced “Shock Trooper” helmets and armor that fit right in with their existing “Space Marine” armor.
I haven’t gotten my hands on any of these yet, but the new jars, bottles and test tubes look pretty nifty. They borrow from the esthetic of the new LEGO bottles and flasks yet add their take on shapes and colors. I think I’m going to have to pick up some of these. The bottles Continue reading →
The Castle layout at BrickCon is going all out this year! In support of that effort, Brickforge is contributing exclusive packs for contributors to the Castle section at the Con. Gotta love those gold helms… Quantities are limited, so if you have something medieval, let me know about it. We can always use more Castle Continue reading →
Recently, Brickforge released the latest of their custom “animals”…the mythical Centaur! I ordered some and I have to say that I love ‘em. They are available in three colors (Tan, Brown, Dark Tan).
Perhaps a bit buried among the news about the release of 10211 Grand Emporium and LEGO Board Games is that the new LEGO City set 7684 Pig Farm & Tractor is also out now. I’m certainly excited by these other new releases, but it says something that I’m choosing to build the pig farm first. Continue reading →
For the month of February, BrickForge is giving away an exclusive Trans-Clear Space Marine Armor Set on any order totaling $25 or more. You can see it in the imminent assassination of this Halo Jackal built by Kyle (Armothe).
BrickForge has just released a huge new batch of minifig accessories, starting with headgear printed to add realism to the helmets and berets. The new medium-blue helmets are printed with “UN” and the dark green berets are printed with a military badge Other new items include: Golf Club Power Blade Raider Blade Sai Hook Sword Continue reading →
One of the themes we’ll be incorporating into the final Zombie Apocafest is “Victory!” If last year’s display represented the outbreak and chaos that would follow a zombie pandemic, we’ll arrange this year’s display to include the human counterattack, victory, and even reconstruction. To that end, we’ve worked with BrickForge on a way to unify Continue reading →
