Win this new T-Shirt from Firestar / Minifig engraving

Posted by ,

Firestar toys has just launched this cool new T-Shirt and matching mug and once again we are running a competition to win them.

Firestar is also offering a new minifig engraving service enabling you to customise selected designs with a name or message.

Find out more about this and how you can win the shirt and mug after the break.


About the engraved minifigures

The ultimate personalised gift for the LEGO fan in your life!

We do things a little differently to ensure a super sharp and crisp text that stays looking awesome!

Normally, engraving is produced on a blank LEGO part with acrylic paints rubbed in, so the text shows up. However, the paint will start to fade and chip, so the text will begin to look worn and eventually disappear.

Our idea is to digitally print a design first and then engrave over the top, so the LEGO colour shows through. This creates a super sharp finish which will never fade and always look amazing!


How you can win

We'd love to hear your ideas for what torso designs -- suitable to have a name engraved under them -- we should produce next. So, to enter the competition simply comment on this article or the Facebook post and tell us your suggestion by Monday midnight.

The best two will win the prizes and have their designs turned into products.

Good luck!

Personally, there are a few, I'd like to see. I really like the idea of it being simple, as many a time, I've wanted to use Lego MFs to spell something, and I think it'd be great to have Letters of the Alphabet on each one, so you can spell things out. There are so many uses for this, in any Lego world you create, as well as for special days, occasions, gifts and display of spelling your name, town, other peoples names as gifts etc

The next one would be a little too difficult I guess, but would love it if you teamed up with lastexittonowhere.com and be able to reproduce some of their great film inspired tshirts, to really personalise our little guys and gals! :)Even just basic film names and logos, ala Top Gun, Aliens, Robocop etc, in in the right font.

Thanks :)

Suggestion
Only the Best is Good Enough

Improvement - the love heart torso should use the brick design seen in some Friends sets.

I think there should be a "Get well soon!" torso. I know any time I've been feeling under the weather, I would have LOVED to get a custom figure with that on it!

How about "I'm with ___________". :)

My suggestion is:

0937

May be with studs down because if they flip you can read «LEGO».
Other variant may be each number on 1x1 bricks not on 1x4.

@ggauge How about two "I'm with ____" torsoes, with arrows pointing to either side so everyone buys 2? :D

Also: "Hello, my name is ____"

Also also: "____'s lover/father/daughter/bff".... they're endless.

Any number of emoji will be suitable for this - obviously the faces: smiley, sad, sick, sticking out tongue, and of course the poo. And then there are the non-face ones like the hands, hearts of different colours (you already have a 2 hearts one) animals, food and everyday items.

As for something 'original' I would like the Star Wars Rebel and Imperial logos, and the Star Trek logo.

Thanks for hosting!

A football (soccer ball)

and even better if you can do it in a range of plain coloured torsos, to allow people to pick their team colours.

You could probably do an oval ball as well for rugby / American football fans.

Don't know how fine you can print, but I'd go for the Princess Bride parody...

"My name is _______, you killed my father. Prepare to die."

Or

"Insert name here" With an arrow pointing down.
" I belong to _______ "

Or obviously....

"Use the force ______"

Gravatar
By in Germany,

You are my stud, ___

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

There are all sorts of things you could do to tie in to the design pictured above...

"I belong to..." (Name)
"Hi, I'm..." (Name)
"I'm mini... (Name)

"Made in... (Place)
"Born in..." (Place)
"Vintage" (Year)

"Born to..." (Past-time) (Build, juggle, code etc)
"Nuts about..." (Thing)

I also really like Colay's idea of a single letter of the alphabet on each so you can spell things out with minifigs.

My suggested slogan for a torso:

I like the idea of "I'm a stud" with the name engraved like the lego logo on the printed stud of a piece on the shirt.

"It's a girl!"
"It's a boy!"
"Just Married"
"STUD"
"Happy birthday!"
"Forever Bricking"
"Sorted"
"Yellow is Mellow"
"PVC is my DNA"
"Hug?"
"1978"
"Ankle Biter"

I think holiday greetings would be cool. Things like, "Merry Christmas", "Happy New Year", "Happy Birthday", and so on. They'd make some neat gifts.

By in United States,

I think these would all make good designs. Thank you!

I'll always stick with you "____"

I can fix a broken heart ( with a bunch of little red legos under slogan.)

I would love to "____" you, but I'm made of plastic

I like the "Master Builder _______" ideas mentioned above.

"Builder since ______" on a tshirt

Button up shirt with company logo on the pocket? (might be too small)

Generic Race suit (in varying colors) with a name plate on the back

Male or female torso with a sash that you could add text too

Male of female torso with an oversized medal you could add text to.

Married couple with wedding dates on the back of their torso

Graduation figure with Year and school on the back of the torso.

@Game on! I like your "builder since ______" idea, I would totally get that shirt.

There is too many to put down.

Brick
Bricking Awesome
No 1 AFOL
2 Brick or not 2 Brick
No 1 KFOL

By in United States,

"Building since ____"
"Born to Build"
"I Heart ____"
"Free Hugs"
Sports figure (several sports should be represented) with customized last name on back of the jersey

I also like the emoji idea, the single letter idea to line up several figs to spell out whatever you want, and the "I'm with ____" idea with an arrow, like "I'm with Stupid" with an arrow pointing to a minifigure with the same shirt pointing right back at the first minifigure. The idea of that just cracks me up, but I am a 41 y/o child :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love these!
How about:
"will you be my 1x5?"
Emojis are cool too.
The houses of Harry Potter would be awesome!

How about one that says "I'd Rather Be _____" on the front with a logo on the back that relates to what you put in the blank. For example, "I'd Rather Be Fishing" would feature a fish on the back; "I'd Rather Be Building" would show a LEGO brick or two; etc. Another idea I had is that they could put an oval outline with letters inside like those bumper magnets/stickers people get on trips ("OC NJ" for Ocean City, New Jersey, for example).

Of course, I also forget the obvious:
I (red heart shape)


Ala The 'I heart NY' tshirts

By in United States,

How about some sports jersey's from popular teams?! That would be pretty neat to see. Or maybe there could be one that says "I'm a Stud" on it!

How about 'THANK YOU *NAME*' so that way you can give to friend, family member or for your child to give to their favourite teacher?

By in United States,

"________ is a real Blockhead!"

"Time to hit the bricks,

"Happy Birthday _________!"

An Easter one: "Some bunny loves _______". (Perhaps replace the word "bunny" with a LEGO bunny?)

I like the one with the twin hearts followed by the name. Could do similar ones with Shamrocks, Easter Eggs, Christmas Trees.
