These Might Be The Most Customized LEGO Minifigures Ever

The cool thing about LEGO minifigures is that you can interchange and swap them with other minifig components. Consisted of a head-piece, the head itself, upper torso, lower torso, and one accessory, LEGO wants to stay true in its purpose of sparking creativity and variety even with its smallest of playthings, while allowing more room for its fans to be creative. And what better way to express this creativity through these highly customized LEGO minifigures.

Chris Lightfoot of Lincoln, England decided to push the limits of LEGO minifig customization to a whole new level with his unique, customized LEGO minifigures . During the day, he is a 3D printing specialist who develops artificial bones for the medical industry and models for architectural firms. Being a LEGO fan himself, he founded his online hobby store Funky 3D Faces. Lightfoot comments, “Although we do enjoy making bones and buildings we wanted to use the technology we had to make something fun and affordable to the masses.” For just less than US$30, you can have a funky, customized look of ‘your little monster’ and turn him into a little hero. According to their website, you just need to send along two clear photographs, one of the side of your head and one taken face-on. Funky 3D Faces then converts those photos into an “eerily lifelike” 3D head, as described by CNET reporter Amanda Kooser.

The process behind the creation of these 3D printed, customized LEGO minifigures is equally impressive as the outcome itself. “We convert 2 photographs into 3D – then using sophisticated full-color 3D printers, we create eerily life-like 15mm high heads,” Chris explains. The head-making process even includes your choice in hair style and color. The heads are sized to be more or less 15 millimeters. It has a sandstone finish with a hole in the neck that perfectly fits on any Lego minifigure. “This means you can turn yourself into whatever Lego character you want, whether it’s a Stormtrooper or one of the Ghostbusters”, adds Kooser. Tiny as it seems, the production of this 3D figure is somehow lengthy and usually takes up to two weeks. So plan accordingly if you need it for a special occasion or as a gift.

A few days ago we did a post showing you most of the official images for the 2016 LEGO Ninjago sets. However, we were missing the Sky Shark (70601) set image. We now have an image of that to show you. We found an image in the back of the instruction booklet of the LEGO Nexo Knights The Fotrex set. We also found another one via Brickimedia.

Leaked 2016 Angry Birds Minifigure Images

Over the weekend a few of the coming LEGO Angry Birds images were leaked in a very odd sort of way. They were shared by a Facebook user named Sky M. to MinifigePriceGuide.

In this image you’ll see Red, Matilda and Stella.

In this picture we see Bomb and Chuck.

And then, here is another picture. Yes, a little weird that these figures were somehow obtained and then staged with cats.

LEGO Avengers Open World Video Game Trailer Released!

Telltale Games recently revealed their latest trailer for the impending release of the “LEGO Marvel Avengers” video game. Unlike Telltale’s previous LEGO Marvel game, this game revolves around the events of the various films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Highlights of the new trailer included several locations from most of the MCU’s films, and the ability to play as several characters who have yet to receive their own film; some of the trailer’s footage show Wasp flying around the streets and skyscrapers of New York and Cap’s buddy Falcon coming in from a landing to join a debriefing.

Like most major game releases, LEGO Marvel Avengers has a bonus for those LEGO or MCU fans whom are already willing to buy the game. Anyone who preorders the game with video game retail chain GameStop will receive a minifigure of Iron Man Mk. XXXIII, also known as the “Silver Centurion.”
