Win your dream minifig!

Posted by ,

We've teamed up with our favourite custom minifig creator, Minifigs.me, to bring you two exciting competitions.

Here's the blurb from Caroline, Chief Minifig Geneticist at Minifigs.me:

"Minifigs.me is a little company, who make custom minifigs to order. We take any kind of commissions, from simple "Happy Birthday" minifigs, to multicoloured, multifaceted creations based on your photos.

"One of our favourite things is hearing your great ideas for minifigures, and what we really, really like is making people smile with our creations. We think the best way to do that is to run a competition so you can tell us your fab ideas for your dream custom minifig, and the one we like best we'll make and send your way!

"And don't worry if you don't have any ideas just now, we'll be happy to just make you smile by sending you a custom minifig of your choice from our website.

"So in conjunction with Brickset we're going to run 2 competitions:

  • A prize draw: just give us your name and email address so we can keep in touch with our latest creations (we won't sell your email or do anything evil with it, just the odd email to say hello and maybe even some special offers one day!). Someone will be be picked at random and will receive a Minifigs.me gift voucher for a custom minifig of your choice.
  • What minifigure would you like us to make? Tell us about it, send us designs if you like, or links to pictures of the person you'd like to see created. The winner will have their dream minifig made for them.

"To enter either competition, fill in the entry form with as much info as you'd like. Our email is also on the form if you need to send more details about your ideal custom minifig.

"And while you're waiting to see who the winner is, why not check out our creations on Facebook and stay in touch with us on twitter.

"We'll close the competition in 4 weeks (Sunday 14th April) and let you know then who the winners and the winning minifig are!"

Hey @hantot - sorry about that, hadn't really thought about that being an issue. Can you drop us an email or use the contact us form and we'll add you to the competition.

@figura - at last! :)

@lego613master - Thanks :) and erm... challenging!!! I'm thinking that's better being a bionicle/hero factory kind of build!

I already entered Freddie Mercury (no pun intended). Can someone enter Frank Zappa, please!

Hmm... I'm getting an error when i click on the confirmation link in the e-mail (Cannot find an email address with id). Anyone else had this problem?

I said the Eighth Doctor, as seen in Dark Eyes. THAT would be an awesome minifig.

@kartoffelviking; darn! I was going for Freddie Mercury! He was just my Favorite Singer! No matter then, I want to know, is a series/couple of minifigures OK? (eg. Brangelina, The Beatles) and Is more than 1 idea per person allowed? And despite kartoffelviking already doing Freddie, may I still submit him as my submission?

@fikko3107; sure you can suggest Freddie Mercury too. In fact, if more people make the same suggestion, it may increase the likelihood of it becoming an actual product.

Sorry you're having issues entering Atuin -please drop us an email with your entry http://minifigs.me/contact/ and we'll add you to the competition.

We're getting some great suggestions, do go ahead and suggest the same thing again (besides Freddie has multiple looks!) All the 'suggestion' entries will go in the draw, then we'll have a separate competition for those that have taken the time to write to us with their ideas.
Of course you can commission us any time to make what you want, but it makes sense for you to see the competition winner, as we'll almost certainly list it for sale afterwards (which is likely to cost a bit less than order it as a full custom).

Thanks for all the support people. I mean it, we really enjoy hearing your ideas, we just can't reply to you individually at the moment, unless you've asked a specific question.

Cheers!
Caroline and Nick

I hope you folks are Douglas Adams fans! I was going to submit Zaphod Beeblebrox, but the third arm might have been even more trouble than his second head. My second choice should definitely be more doable.

I entered the Assembly Engineer Rank 3 from Lego Universe. That would be an EPIC minifig personally. :)
