    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    Sorry for the long post. Here is my collection of BAMs. I paired up the parts/accessories how I best felt they worked among the themed characters. I realize that each store is different and has a different/limited selection of parts. I think I am missing a few. Can we count Minifigure Factory Figures as part of the BAM selection?

    I cannot embed photo links here. The photos are hosted on Flickr. Does not work if I 'Insert other Media'. The URL box just turns red.

    I'm not sure there are many 'matching' heads as matching torsos-to-legs. Same with accessories, although in this case, the printed tile makes a lot of sense.

    Since BAM has generated two Blue 'Wizards' can we add or rename one of them? I feel the new one is more 'wizardy' and the older one seems more like a magician.

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    I love the fact that a few members have been keeping tabs on the various parts (some exclusive) from the Build-a-Minifigure kiosk and Minifigure Factorys. I understand that different locations sometimes have different parts available, but is there an unofficial list of BAM characters? I've downloaded a few photos from the locations that appear to have employee-assembled characters. Of course, the pre-packaged ones are fairly easy to identify. Is there a consensus on which accessories and body parts best complement each other to create believable characters?
  6. DBG is not yet an option for a reward tier, add-on; but could end up as a production color! Also, if we hit $7K then backers get to choose the bonus color.
  7. Hi all! There is only a week left to get in on some really neat rewards. https://www.kickstar...x-minifig-stand The Hexibrix is a new brick accessory that can be used for displaying minifigs, MOCs or setting up a gameboard for wargaming or questing (Settlers of Catan). They are compatible with all sorts of bricks, plates & baseplates; can stack on top of themselves and link to each other side-by-side. Minifigs can swivel to face any direction and the topside connections can be used to store extra elments. Backers have their choice of several reward tiers, including discontinued and exclusive products. Check it out now!

    [QUESTION] Modifying Colors of Pieces

    RIT is best use on fabric, not plastic. I've never been able to get RIT to change the color of white to much more than a minor tint towards the color I wanted. -A
  9. Hi Guys, I figured a few of you might be interested in 20 new RiGGED items released Sept 1st! They are all compatible with the first Wave - increasing customizing possibilities hundred-fold. -Armothe
  10. Hi CD, Maintaining such a large amount of inventory is a chore. This means that every so often we will allow colors of certain items to lapse while we restock others. I can tell you that we do have those colors on order and will be here within the next few weeks. -A
  11. Thanks Behemoth! Here are a few other images that might better explain the RiGGED system - as well as showcasing the new WW2 products.
  12. Since I usually speak with Victor a few times a month it is my understanding he recently purchased a pad printer, not a digital printer; but I'm not 100% sure. If he does digital printing I think he is outsourcing it, but again; not entirely sure. A low-end digital printer is around $15,000 compared to the higher-end UV printers that push $25,000. Christo and Citizen are both pad print at this time - to my knowledge. I don't think we really need Kickstarter to get this moving, just someone with some capital to purchase the arms, pay for the plates & per-piece, then a reliable method for people to order them and distribute. -A
  13. Yes, I posted a link over in the GB Flickr group (in the comments of the patch photo). One of the bigger concerns is obtaining 400 Tan right arms. Seems simpler to obtain 200 pair and print on both. Charge a premium for the right arm and less for the left - some people may not care and would be willing to utilize the left for a cheaper cost. The only time I can recall TLG using more than 2 colors on an armo is the Cloud City Fett and I'm almost positive that was a digital printer, not pad printer. To locate someone with one of those is tougher, and I'm not convinced the quality is up to snuff. -A
  14. TLG will never alter the set at this point. They purchased the licensing to make the Cuusoo set and nothing else at this point. The only hope is for them to purchase the licensing rights to an entire line - at which point they may add the arm patch. Anyways, custom seems to be the way to go. There are so many print pad shops out there it would be reasonable to expect a $50.00 setup fee for each color and then $1.00 each per part. I will say that getting 3 colors on the arm patch using print pad is next to impossible. We're talking about a 8mm wide space with lots of room for error. It would have to be one hell of a clean image and steady jig to pull it off. Two colors (red & white) seem more reasonable. I have a local guy here in the states that does low-run print pad for BrickForge when we don't require full shots of 1000+ qty. -A
