Introducing The LEGO Movie SigFig Creator

Posted by ,

The official site for The LEGO Movie has introduced the SigFig Creator: a nice new feature that allows you to create your own personal "SigFig". There are many good customisations available, and upon completion, the program gives you a code so that you can go back to it later and edit it whenever you want. It also says that you can use the code in upcoming video games, which I presume means the LEGO Movie Video Game that was announced a few months back. You can also download your SigFig for use as a wallpaper, poster, avatar or Facebook cover photo.

Overall this is one of the more impressive minifigure customisation programs that has been released by LEGO that I've seen. It's much more diverse in selections than that of the avatar designer that My LEGO Network had, and is a lot better than the avatar designer used with LEGO ID on sites such as the LEGO Message Boards.

It's not bad, but I can actually make a better, closer sig fig with fairly common real minifig parts. There's no goatee for one thing. The minifig with the red-orange goatee looks eerily like me.

Already checked it out! It works pretty good, and is very easy to use.

It just says you'll be able to play as your sigfig in "The LEGO Movie games". Sounds more like web games to me; TT's LEGO games have always had a very different system for custom character creation than this, allowing for selection of individual pieces like arms and hands and all that.

I just noticed a European-style fire helmet, and used that as part of my fig. Might we actually see this part in a set?

One problem though, my fig's face looked more like a cheap brand's figures than Lego's. I think that they need to lighten up the flesh color to more of a minifig yellow, and change the selection of eyebrows, eyes, and mouths to match what normal minifigures come with.

It was pretty simple to use, but it was different than that of the video games.

I was hoping you could change the minifigures' skin color... I didn't want to be stuck with just yellow... :P

This is fun! Great options!

And good luck on your new position here at Brickset, Meiko!

I feel like I should also note that I'm curious as to how this program will develop over time. I was impressed to see that this program was done in HTML5, which has to be a first for any LEGO media. That's not a bad thing either, because Flash is rather lacking in availability and uses by today's standards.

And @GreenNinjaCP, thank you! I've been enjoying the position so far. :-)

Meiko, knowing you from other places, this is quite a shock seeing you as a database administrator here. :P
But congrats anyway. :)

It seems to be severely lacking options, especially for the mouth.
