We so rarely feature custom figures on here, and it’s high time to highlight one. Minh Pham creates exceptional custom figures, so the hardest part is actually picking one. The level of detail on this, like everything else in his portfolio, is just stunning. Gotham’s reckoning indeed.
LEGO Custom models on The Brothers Brick | Page 2
This is not the page for LEGO purists. From heavily customized minifigures to LEGO pieces chopped, painted, and stickered to within an inch of their little plastic lives, this is where you’ll find some of the most creative uses — and abuses — of LEGO anywhere.
Julian Fong (levork) is a minifig customiser that I greatly admire… his designs always capture the essence of the subject whilst also making the transference to Lego style perfectly. This group of custom minifigs based on the Streetfighter computer games are absolutely fantastic: He has also submitted this to CUUSOO which in my view would be a project that definitely Continue reading →
bricksonwheels is certainly known for his highly detailed LEGO model vehicles. But he turns up the awesomeness knob on his latest build. He said that he was inspired by the custom painted trucks often seen in Scandinavia. After some trial and error, he was able to take a high resolution wallpaper from Magic The Gathering Continue reading →
Some may already know me but I am Jas (Jasbrick on Flickr) and I have an unhealthy obsession with mutilating ABS plastic. I promise that this fixation will not divert me from highlighting unadulterated creations, but I thought it fitting that my first official post involves customisation… and what better way to start than with Continue reading →
From June 15-17 in Wheeling, IL, there will be a show by custom military vendors including Brickmania and BrickArms. In addition they will be displaying some models and exclusives. Click on the flyer below for the full details.
If you’ve ever wondered where baby minifigs come from, Citizen Brick is the answer!
Here’s a perfect example of why there is no such thing as a useless piece. Even broken pieces can be used, given sufficient imagination and skill, as flickr user erth&fiya so aptly demonstrates with his adorable creation made entirely of damaged pieces.
Eurobricks member Anio‘s Naboo Royal Starship has fewer than 300 bricks, but who cares when they are custom chromed? Anio says he got the chrome parts from Chrome Block City, one of the two Bricklink stores with an extensive selection of custom chrome parts (the other one being Chrome Bricks).
A bit of chrome goes a long way to add realism and distinctiveness to Alex Jones’ (“Orion Pax”) fire truck.
In Part 1 of “Confessions of a minifig customizer,” we heard from Jasbrick about how to get started with minifig customization, and in Part 2 we learned about how to paint great minifigs. In our final installment, Jasbrick shares tips about the best ways to take customization even farther. When you just can’t find the Continue reading →
Alex Jones’ (“Orion Pax”) Back to the Future DeLorean looks like an actual diecast model rather than a Lego creation. Despite the spray-painted hull, it’s still a legit build due to the skillful customization job.
In our first guest post from Jasbrick, we learned about how to get started with minifig customization. Now, let’s hear what he has to say about the tools of the trade. Now that you have a concept and have gone as far as you can by conventional means it is time to bring in the 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 →
I generally don’t blog customized stuff, as I generally take issue with cutting brick or going out of system. That said, I couldn’t pass this custom Samantha Carter from Stargate SG-1 up. Nice work, Catsy.
