Looking for custom minifigs?

Posted by ,

LEGO makes a huge variety of different minifigs but there are times when the one you want isn't among them. Maybe you want one with your favourite sports team's logo emblazoned on its shirt?

This is where Savage Steel's Minifigs comes in. Brickset member Savage Steel has started producing high quality custom minifig torsos featuring any design you can imagine. I'm not a big soccer/football fan but I do like a bit of speedway so I asked her to produce a custom Poole Pirates minifig so that I could see for myself how good they are.

 

Custom minifig And, as you can see if you click on the image on the left, they are very good. There is an incredible level of detail in the printing, and all the sponsor's logos -- Sky Sports, Draper etc. -- are legible.

Customisation is not limited to the front of the torso: I am told that the back and even the legs can be decorated if the design calls for it.

 

Right now, with the Olympics in full swing, and Team GB doing rather well, she is giving our gold medal winners the ultimate accolade: forget circular pieces of metal and stamps, she is creating custom minifigs for each and every one of them, and they are great!

My particular favourite is that of Jess Ennis who I had the pleasure of seeing participate in the heptathlon on Saturday at the Olympic stadium. Here she is with her medal and posy.

If you want your very own custom minifig, head on over to minifigs.me or visit the custom minifigs page on Facebook.

ha ha - thanks @Huw and thanks @caperberry for pointing that out! Thankfully they didn't take a pic of me too! Mind you I used a minifig me in a lego lab as my profile photo for a scientific paper I published :)

I have usually tried to stay away from customs, because I'm a bit of a purist with LEGO, but these are so good, I'm not sure I can say I wouldn't like to have one. They're so cool!

@Huw, thanks for giving me an idea for my moms birthday pressie, she follows Birmingham Brummies home and away, so i will be making an enquiry for a custom figure.

Have you done any Team USA minifigs? I'd love to see a Michael Phelps.

Rolyat24 - it depends really on what you want. The most basic fig (a simple design or logo you provide) on a torso and using standard colours and parts is around 6GBP or $10 plus postage. adding stuff to the back, legs, arms, head etc... adds a bit more. As does complicated designs (eg doing the olympic figs the design part takes over an hour each torso). Please use the 'something else' option to get in touch and let me know what you want.

Most figs are about 10GBP or $17

And thanks :)

@Savage_Steel: Thanks for the info! I will definitely check it out later.

A couple questions: I'm generally a LEGO purist, so custom minifigs generally don't appeal to me, but I'm okay with decals as long as they're on sticker paper. Also, do your minifigs have painted parts?

Another happy customer of two of Sav's minifigs here, can't recommend the quality and service highly enough
