  1. With the reveal of the new UCS Snowspeeder today, I saw a lot of people complaining about the inclusion of so many stickers. I began to think about it, and found it a bit strange how the Lego community so adamantly hates stickers, since in other modeling communities decals are common place and accepted parts of the model building process. I've had some model kits before which include stickers and water slide decals, and choosing either or is optional. While it could be argued that water slide decals or dry transfer decals are even more difficult to apply than stickers, when done properly the results are spectacular and can even be made to like as if the decal was "printed." While Lego is obviously meant for kids and probably won't embrace more complex decal sheets, would having them as an option be something AFOL's would want to see? I am pretty sure plenty of Lego customizers are using them already, but I mean having decals such as dry transfer or water slide in official sets as an option for a more professional look than a sticker. I don't know if they would withstand rough play, but for an AFOL looking to display the model, they would be a great alternative. For those who don't know what a dry transfer decal or a water slide decal is, here are some examples of how they work: Dry transfer: http://www.ghostofzeon.com/diy/drytrans/dry.html Water slide: http://www.model-train-tips.com/blog/57/the-art-of-applying-decals/ Thoughts?
  2. Hello there! I already opened two threads in here about decals, but with the evergrowing amount of designs that I do for Star Wars and a few other franchises, I thought it would be wiser to make a thread where I can show all of my work in a single place. Maybe a few of you find some of my designs useful? I try to make mostly original design, but sometimes, I do imitate the officially released minifigs. Also, some decals are specific requests that I got, like adapting characters to different styles or make specific changes to certain designs. I hope you enjoy them! Lando Calrissian – Cloud City Lando Calrissian – The Force Awakens Era (based on a Lego Star Wars animated series) Captain Antilles – Tantive IV Galen Erso – Lah'mu Farmer Outfit Grand Admiral Thrawn – Fixed Rank Insignia Nien Nunb Ahsoka Tano – De-Cloneified Padawan Look You can also view my collection of selfmade decals on my decal site. As I mentioned, I also do requests as long as I like them and feel like accepting their challenge, so don't be shy to ask if you need anything Star Wars related! Since I do post my finished designs on my website, I may not update this opening post with new designs; however, I will post it in here when I finish a new decal, so make sure to check the end of the thread and/or my blog website if you wanna be up to date. Currently, I have four additional decals in the works: TCW Admiral Yularen, TFA Luke Skywalker, Cassian Andor und Poe Dameron With Jacket.
  3. If it's ok with you guys, I would like to share some of my customs To make them I mainly used: decals "scotch decals" (thanks to mkeller234) permanent markers (like Stabilo OHPen Universal) You can find MOCs and other stuff on my Flickr page. Baron von Strucker This is my first custom ever. I edited a decal made by Emperor Krulos. Phil Coulson The face is from the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent from 76036, the decal of the torso is designed by Concore, and to make the I.C.E.R. I simply painted a custom gun. "Deathlok" Mike Peterson To make the torso I painted a Falcon's one. Iron Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. VS Iron Agent of Hydra The S.H.I.E.L.D. torso was a bit complicated: to make the white of the reactor I had to apply a white sticker between the torso and the transparent decal. Yes, I know I cheated...the Hydra torso is from Iron Skull (76048) Tell me what you think...I hope good things! Coming soon: - Coulson's Energy Shield - Whiplash (Iron Man 2) - Tony Stark racer (Iron Man 2)
  4. I was sure that I've already shared it on weekend, but seems that it was lost ... I've published a book with a complete set of table about the Austrian army during Napoleonic wars. Base for that were the decal set I started years ago on the base of Mosana's designs. They get a complete relaunch with all the necessary changes to be as historical accurate as possible representing the different Austrian Units. See here the decals used for the Austrian Landwehr and partly a s base also for other units: . The 2nd topic were all the custom hats and helmets for the Napoleonic times where the first item ever done in the 3d printing technology was started here after a longer discussion how the rare shakos can be recreated with other means. The 3rd part were all the renders I can do now with LDD, LDD2povray, stl2povray and povray. During Christmas I recoded a bigger part so that doing these tabels with figures in diferent positions can be done more easily. See one of the results here (Hungarian insurrectio troops): Finally I have added some textual clue mainly referencing some historical or military explanations (with references to the text in Wikipaedia) resulting now in the book published by tredition.de .... Since a lot of topics and techniques created for this book were first discussed here I want to thank all the member which have contributed with their ideas ... Woody64

I will release the decals in the future. I plan on creating more characters as well as a playset when i have more time. Let me know what do you think of them! :)
  6. hello everyone, I decide to make this thread to show decals I have made/am going to make in the future. if you have any suggestions, comments, or any other feedback don't be afraid to reply
  7. I've put together some decals / stickers / decorations for the most recent Star Wars Imperial Officers. I hope they come in handy for someone out there. Clicking on each of the smaller images below should open the larger versions.

Enjoy!
  8. I've seen many custom clones that use decals but the legs are posable legs. I tried asking some but they tell me its a trick of the trade and magicians don't revival their tricks. From what I hear there are 2 methods, I can only find a guide for the one that says put sticky tape on top. And that dosn't work the best. Any one wanna help me by passing on a trick of the trade to a young padawan?
  9. Is there any LEGO digital designing program available that allows for reasonably simple addition of custom decals to all parts? I'm trying to decorate parts like 11477.
  10. Hello everyone got a few designs I want to show off and get some feedback. So with out further ado let's show off some of my creations. Octan gas worker suit. Based off my late Grandfather who was a gas truck driver long ago. Syd Enoch's shirt. A bit of promotion for the game I'm developing with my team Terrier Games. Yes that is a Rope belt. A personal decal as this is my T-shirt. That is Plokman's. So what do you guys think so far? I'm not 100% on line thickness so advice on that would be welcome. More to come as I make em.
  11. The Harry Potter line was one of my favorites and I (like many) was crushed when it was discontinued. I have been working on decals of characters that were not released, based on their appearances in the Traveller's Tales games. I haven't actually used any of the decals yet, so I'm not sure how they would look on a physical figure (I'm waiting for the technology to catch up so that I can affordably make LEGO-quality figures). I'm not sure how many other Potterheads are out there, but I thought I would share a few that I have worked on. Enjoy! Nymphadora Tonks: tonks by Orpheus McAdams, on Flickr Dudley Dursley: dudley by Orpheus McAdams, on Flickr Cedric Diggory: cedric.svg-path4647-456 by Orpheus McAdams, on Flickr I welcome any feedback on these!
  12. Hey all, Been getting my bearings around the threads and all and I noticed something kind of worrying on the Custom Decal front. From what I've read there seems to be a difficulty with having white in you decal design. Especially if your are making your decals with something like Testors Waterslide decal paper or similar. My question is is there a reason that White can't be printed with a inkjet printer and show up on the decals. I know the reason why Metallic colors can't be done since Printers can't print metallic (which you think by now we would have ones with addable inks that can) without it just being Grey. I'm sorry if this has been explained else where I don't want to make a thread on a covered subject. But I thought I'd ask the experts. Main reason I ask is I want to have whites for the eyes of my minifigures with glasses like Good Cop's and also you got to have white for the Octan logo. Anyway let me know and I'll figure it out from the pros. Thanks all, Plokman
  13. This took be about a week to make and get perfect. First up is regular Dr. Malcolm And the best version of him.... SHIRTLESS All the ladys want him. Hope u like them. fixed vertions
  14. So, I've seen people saying; "Man, I really wished I had a minifigure of Lowery, the cool guy with the Jurassic Park t-shirt in Jurassic World!" Well guess what. You can have him. That's right, for my first ever decal design, I have designed Lowery's torso! Below will be the torso decal for you; just copy it in to a word document and it should be the correct size. Print however you like to make your minifigure and you'll have your very own Lowery! Please post pictures if you do use it, and make sure to comment how I can improve my decal designs! ----- Here's my test with the decal! My printer is rubbish, so imagine what you could o if you have a quality printer!
  15. Hi there, I've been looking everywhere for some high quality sticker paper for customizing minifigs. I'm seeing in videos and pictures everywhere that people are using clear sticker paper on minifigs, but they're not waterslide. I've searched all over the place, and I haven't found out anything about it. Not even the Eurobricks search function can shed some light on this! Anyways, I'm hoping to find some that are reasonably priced, high quality, easy to apply, and work with an inkjet printer. I don't really like the idea of waterslide decals because it seems to take a lot of skill and time commitment, both of which I really don't have much of. While white paper seems to do well (especially since you can't print white), but I'd prefer to use transparent (obviously I'd need white paper when I would need to print bright colors also, so yes, I guess I am going to need both white and transparent). I have been hearing a lot more recently about "labels". What are they? Is it just another name for a decal or sticker? Or is it literally using the materials that were originally meant for labeling for minifigure customization? Or is it something different altogether? I've seen professionals online use transparent stickers amazingly. TheCooperWorks and those old BrickForge decals from a few years back have proven that sticker paper is a suitable alternative. So please, if there any reasonably priced, high quality, easy to apply decals that work with an inkjet printer that you know of, I'd love to hear about it.
  16. Hello Eurobricks! These are my first custom minfigures which I have devoted to Tintin, first of all I would like to say a huge thanks to: Hound Knight-for inspiring me, and by suppling decals for Tintin, Capt. Haddock and Calculus.- Second to (Dutch) -who spent countless hours making me decals :)- and finally to JopieK and his team at ministickers.nl for printing me these great decals (buy them here! http://ministickers.nl/shop/shop/minifigs-2/tintin-minifigs/) Enough talking! Here's the buckling reporter himself! Tintin by SandMirror38, on Flickr Decal by Hound Knight, whilst I myself made the hairpiece using games workshop's 'green stuff' *Edit* -Added Haddock and Calculus- Captain Haddock by SandMirror38, on Flickr Professor Calculus by SandMirror38, on Flickr More minifigures coming soon! *UPDATE 2!* WIP Nestor! WIP Nestor -Front- by SandMirror38, on Flickr WIP Nestor -Back- by SandMkr *FINAL UPDATE* Woah, long time no see!!! (Admin'll probably hate me for bumping this... ) So after a long process of anything and everything to do with getting these minifigures made they are FINALLY done and I am happy to present my custom printed Tintin minifigures!! Custom Tintin minifigures. by SandMirror38, on Flickr Which ones are YOUR favorite? I'd be happy to answer any questions you have :) Kind Regards, SandMirror38
  17. Does anybody have the measurements in pixels for chest, leg, and face parts for custom decals also would double sided tape and regular paper work (i do not want anything permanent if you have any other ideas)
  18. EDIT: Now also with HUFFLEPUFF TORSOS! Hello Eurobricks! Geertos13 here, I don't post a lot in the customization usually, but I thought this was worth it. While working on my new Harry Potter Brickfilm, (which hum hum.. can be checked out ...) I wanted to get everything look quite pro, and I've been always been sort of a purist, so for my little Hogwarts students, I didn't want to go for decals, so I looked around the net, and except for Smallgreenpeatoys' ravenclaw and Hufflepuff torsos that don't look that good, I went looking but couldn't find anything good! And then I found poppunkmunkys store, now before you all get mad, cause I saw that he got quite some hate on here, I thought his quality was really good. He also offers a printing service for a 5$ per torso if you order five torsos of the same printing, perfect for custom armies, Ooorrr Hogwarts students for that matter! So I present to you, the first ever, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff printed torsos! I only ordered some Ravenclaw ones first, as I didn't know what to expect, but the printing came out great, colorfull and crisp, so I soon ordered Hufflepuff torsos as well and below is the result! Behold, the front and back together below : Here is a comparison picture with the other two official houses, as I said, Hufflepuff to come soon. Finally, here is a picture that actually features a figure I bought from the store itself, based on the Hufflepuff quidditch team, also highly detailled, crisp and accurate: Special thanks goes out to lego3x11l who was willing to design new customs for me. Tin7creations' decals vanished from the internet quite a while back, and he made his own, new ones, if you want you can check em out here What do you think of those custom Ravenclaw torsos? Absolute win or epic purist fail? Want one yourself? Go ahead on order one here.
  19. The newly discovered TASM2 Electro figure has inspired me to create one for the Green Goblin! Only torso done so far, but I'd like some feedback on that, I'm not sure about the lower section and whether I simplified that area too much. HQ reference pictures of the physical suit here: http://www.edward-de...ng-spiderman-2/ EDIT: Updated torso and added face! EDIT 2: Back decal and Gwen Stacy torso: Thanks!
  20. Figure'd I'd start a topic for my customs. Why not? Mr. Spock by Borador1, on Flickr A.L.F by Borador1, on Flickr "You've redecorated!" by Borador1, on Flickr ... More on my Flickr. Enjoy!
  21. After a discussion with LuxorV and Dr Leg O'Brick, We came to a conclusion that Community was the best place to put this thread. Here Kre-O decals will be produced so that you can customize your Kreons to your heart's content. Kre-O themes are as followed Star Trek Transformers G.I Joe Battleship Dungeons and Dragons Cityville Invasion Decals will be made from that list of themes. Here are some I made earlier General Trelane (Retired) Harry Mudd These decals were inspired by Star Trek: The Original Series Kre-O decals are the same size as Lego decals at width, but are slightly shorter at the length I look forward to seeing what you can come up with, - END OF LINE -
  22. Hi, has anyone taken the time, and patience, to make an LXF file with torsos with all decals available? I'm getting crazy to find and classify all decals usable within different settings (sci-fi, fantasy, modern...). I'm currently working on one, but if anyone has it already...
  23. These minifigures were made for my space comic. After Blacktron was destroyed many groups tried to raise up and take control of the planet. One of these bands were Xenfar... This is the standard grunt: The decals didn't come out as well as I hoped, but oh well. He has back decals as well. I also made female soldier decals. Notice how the uniforms have different numbers on them. The whole band. As they are but rebels at the moment, with no rich benefactor, they use whatever weapons and helmets they have available. Thanks for looking, C&C appreciated!
  24. I'm trying to make decals for the first time using Inkscape, and I need to know what colours on it mostly resemble LEGO tan and light grey. Thanks.
  25. Here you are kindly, it's a show of good faith that I want to be a prosperous part of the community. I spent some time in the isolation chamber where I met OtherRick and he asked some hard questions but all the answers pointed to being a good friend to the Eurobricks community, and this is my first labour of love for their pleasure. I'm doing requests for my best friends at Eurobricks. No request too hard!! No design too complex!!! Thank you, fromWonkyRick P.S. yes I do use Paint to create my decals!!! But I draw them on paper first and then trace the photocopy! Hooray!!!
