  1. How come LEGO Universe never got a line of sets? Considering it had a story, the factions and the Nexus could have been the main focus, with spare pieces to use on customizing minifigures. Heck, when the game was out, I envisioned LEGO adding a line where you could buy packs of minifigures that featured different weapons, armor, clothes, and accessories that either fit into LU generally or where part of a faction, like a proto-Minifigure line. I forget if my idea was based around mystery bags or not, but another idea I had was a set that had a collection of minifigures and small builds with tons of weapons and armor from in-game like the boxed collections of minifigures. But childhood ramblings aside, why didn't they promote it like they did with the LEGO Movie with sets? At the very least they could have added onto the price like it was a licensed line and diverge the extra money to the game itself to pay for moderators and admins (maybe even give some free time in the game so kids could try out the wider game, and maybe give their characters a collection of pieces to add to their existing collection in the freebuild islands, cars, and rockets). I remember seeing all the cool gear you could get in-game and how cool the enemies looked, and wondered why they didn't at least make the pieces available in some smaller line so kids (i.e. me and my friends) could use them in their builds and allow them the feeling of making stuff in the game. Wouldn't you like making a mech while having official pieces that had your faction logo and had a 1-to-1 recreation of your actual character's appearance and high-level gear with his pet skunk co-piloting? The only reason I say this is because there were instances where elements would show up in LU and there wouldn't be any real life equivalent, either because the designers took liberties with the pieces and their connections (even though ironically some could have been made real easily as the pieces were just edits of existing ones) or because they designed stuff, like the faction and enemy pieces, that don't have a clean, official real life counterpart. I don't even care if LU can't come back as an MMO, considering how hard it is to run a family friendly one without the world's best team of mods, admins, and (because it's LEGO) software algorithms, but considering how popular it was in general, making the move to sets and another medium for story, like a single player/local multiplayer game, tv show, or full line of comics wouldn't be outside the realm of a possible success. And it wouldn't have even been a bad idea to release the full code (I wouldn't even care if I had to pay for it) for the game to more easily let its own community continue hosting the game by letting them set up their own servers a la Minecraft. I just feel that there was too much wasted when the game ended and TLG left it fully in the dust with little to nothing salvaged.
  2. Hello, folks! I am working on a project, and I'm looking to see if anyone is aware of an image repository of *every single* minifigure. I'm looking for images that are consistently taken (i.e. same camera, same lighting, same minifig position, etc.). It would also be great to separately have images of all of the heads. If anyone is aware of such a repository, or knows how one would go about getting such a complete resource from Lego or the like, I'd certainly appreciate it. I've already been working with the developer for "The Unofficial LEGO Minifigure Catalog" app, and am still trying to work through talks. I'm not sure if it will pan out, so I'm looking for any other available resources. Thanks, team!

    HOW TO BUILD....A drinking fountain!

    Hi everybody! I've decided to start sharing a few ideas and tips for building some of my own creations - starting with this minifig-scale drinking fountain. Why not have a go?! Uses less than 30 pcs.... https://flic.kr/s/aHsmqDoDnP (click this link, not the pic, for full instruction pics)
  4. Hello everyone,This is our latest project, the Main Square of Crema, a town in the Northern part of Italy. We represented the Cathedral (2016, see Discussion), the facade of the Palace of the Bishop (2018, in yellow), part of the City Hall (2018, with the tower and some interior). We are aware that the buildings need lots of improvements, concering both structure and quality details, but for now we didn't want to devote all of our time to this work and so this is a beta version which we hope to improve in the next years. We decided to add a Christmas atmosphere to the layout (forgive some improper clothes :P), but the idea is to transform it in a rainy layout, something quite uncommon. The whole MOC is made up of about 17.000 LEGO bricks. I add to this post some pictures of the city, so that you can compare them to the model. More pictures on Flickr.I will add some better when I have time to organize an adequate photo setting. Every suggestion is definitely welcome; we hope you will like our MOC! :)Thanks for reading,FBros

    [MOC] Athletics Track

    Hello everyone! :) This is a project begun in 2016, freely inspired by an athletics track in the north of Italy. It's populated by friends and people - some of them are ordinary, others are so odd - that used to train or work there. As now, the MOC is in a minifig scale. The track combines bricks in different orientations and some techniques (e.g. the numbers before the finish line) to make it detailed and realistic as much as possible. It's also modular to make it easy to transport and, above all, easy to continue. The current version consists of about 3700 bricks, but we're already designing the curved section. We hope this MOC can interest you and, in case you like it, keep updated following us on Flickr! FBros
  6. Hello all. As Lego has moved along over the years, I have noticed steady increase in pieces that are updated with new molds. One that surprises me that has not been updated is the 2x2x2 slope piece used to represent dresses, robes, etc. Am I the only one that thinks this should be updated with a new piece? I have never liked the fact that using this piece makes a minifigure 1 plate taller than they should be, the arms can't sit flush against the torso (because it's wider than regular legs), the figure is static because the torso can't bend, they don't hold together well when played with, and dresses aren't square (well, you know what I mean). Why has Lego not created a new dress mold or standard minifigure equivalent? I don't mean to make this into a gender issue... but could this be because the major focus for girls' play is now the Friends, Disney Princess, Elves, etc. lines with minidoll style figures? My kids enjoy minidolls and minifigures, but I have noticed they like to use regular minifigure legs over these slope dresses. Just seems overdue for a new piece. Thoughts?
  7. Hi there, I wondered if someone could help, I'm trying to find some Architect men Minifigures and have been searching high and low but can't seem to find any anywhere. I've just made one up on MINIFIGS.ME but it's cost around £17 with delivery. I actually need around 50 of these minifigures as it's for my daughters uni project. Does anyone have any suggestions on suppliers or websites I could speak to please? Many thanks

    My decals

    Hey, all! here is my collection of decals, i will add a reply with every finished decal. These are full minifigure decals only. If you want to use them, just let me know and make sure that the width and height stick in proportion when resising, and that the width is between 3 and 4. you may need to adjust according to the computer/ document program you use. Enjoy! also, luxor, if you could add these to the database. I will give a title for these and a genre, so yu can put them in the correct spot. Thanks!
  9. So I've decided to start painting minifigures. I really need some help on figuring out how to remove printing and what paints to use. Help would be appreciated.
  10. Lord Voldemort has no nose, so why does his minifigure have one?
  11. Lego 5005358 Minifigure Factory As part of the 40th Anniversary celebration by Lego, they're giving this set as a freebie with $75 purchases in April 2018. I got mine for buying some sets I wanted and figured I'd share this cool free set. Name: Minifigure Factory Set Number: 5005358 Pieces: 86 Price: $Free (with $75 purchase) Minifigs: 1 (plus 5 microfigs) Theme: n/a Year of Release: 2018 Links: Bricklink Brickset The Box An unusual box, since all the normal print is a paper wrapper around the actual box. The Back of the Box That is a massive number of warning languages. The Wrapper and Box The wrapper slides off, revealing a printed box underneath. The box itself is not sealed at all - it just has a tab in a slot on the top. The Contents Inside are the manual, a printed interior, a grey plate that's glue into place in the box, a printed card, and the bag of parts. Interestingly, the bag is not the normal type of plastic that Lego uses. This plastic is softer and not crinkly. The Minifigs The Lego worker is a GREAT figure. The choice of yellow for the shirt is awkward though. I know it's the standard employee shirt (such as in Lego stores), but on the yellow-skinned fig it's weird. Is it a long sleeve shirt? If it was short-sleeved would we even know? Or is it sleeveless? But enough about him. Check out those microfigs! I think the white "hat" on the policeman is weird since it's not an actual hat, but I can overlook that. The Minifigs' Backs There's no second face on the figure, and limited printing on the microfigs, but I can't complain. The Build, 1 Not shown, you first build a little red cart. The main part of the build is shown like this - building on the grey plate - but the actual plate is glued into place in the box. Makes things a little more difficult for the big-handed among us, but nothing too hard. The Build, 2 The Build, 3 The assembly line itself. 2 of the 3 printed parts are shown here. The set includes 1x2 printed tiles in the yellow/black stripe pattern (4 of them), a 1x4 tile in the same pattern, and a 1x2 tile with a segmented arrow that's from the Boost and Ninjago City sets. But why green paint on the brush? They made a new paintbrush with medium azure paint on it for the Easter set - why not make that set and this one share a brush in a more common color, like red or blue? I'm thinking there must be another use for the medium azure brush coming, but that's just me thinking Lego wouldn't have made a custom printed brush for that one freebie set. Then again, they did custom print the egg for it.... The Build, 4 The assembly line sits onto the base and then pins are inserted from the back.... I sense a play feature coming! The card goes onto the pins and is held in place by Technic half bushes. Unfortunately, the card covers up the 2 printed photos on the back of the box (or at least one a time, depending on how the line is positioned). I love the detail Lego put into these - it wouldn't be a Lego set without a coffee cup, and they tied the green paintbrush in with the left picture. The Build, 5 This is why that card was added. As you slide the line back and forth, the picture in the window changes to match the microfig below. Simple but so cool of a feature to add. And nice representation of the minifigure patent hanging on the wall. The Build, 6 And we have the figure in his spot, working hard inspecting the microfigures. Not shown is one big flaw that I can't believe made it to production. You cannot slide the line far enough to the right to have the Pixal image fully in the window. It needs to go another stud over, but it can't. There's a stop on the underside of the line, plus it's hitting the side of the box. The End of the Manual The end of the manual has a 2 page spread of the history of the minifigure. The End of the Manual, 2 This page covers some more recent minifigure advances. Short legs, baby figs, but why is Mr. Gold on here? He was part of Series 10, so not the start of the collectible lines, and he's a figure that many fans are bitter about since he was so hard to find. The Conclusion I love this freebie. The microfigs are great representations of classic figures (well, most of them - I'm not sure that Pixal is worthy of inclusion) and it's a clever set. It closes back up nicely for storage, but this is one that will be sitting out on a lot of shelves I'm sure. The Ratings Value: 10/10 - It was free with purchase. And you get a custom box, custom printed microfigs, a cool minifig, and nice play features. Design: 8/10 - The box is great, but the line can't slide quite far enough to the right. Minifigs: 10/10 - IMHO, Pixal should have been something else. A castle fig would have been better, but I suspect Pixal was chosen both to represent Ninjago AND because the purple stands out. Playability: 8/10 - Small and simple, but clever design. Parts: 9/10 - I always love having the printed hazard stripe tiles, but these will be staying in this set. Otherwise nothing special, but nothing more was really needed. Overall: 9.5/10 - It's hard to complain about a freebie, but I do wish the line slid over further and they'd picked a different last microfig.

  13. Here are some MOCs using minifigures and parts from the latest series of collectible minifigures (CMFs), Series 18. Unfortunately, you can't see inside the dragon-man's mouth very well. He has the same head as the tree stump carnivorous plant. Should I re-shoot him? Questions? Comments? Carnivo-botanophobia?

    Hi Everybody, I want to show you my reviews about LEGO Minifigures, Sets etc. LEGO Robin Hood Minifigure Review: LEGO Mexican Minifigure Review:
  16. Hello Friends! I study 3D modeling and can make a person head in miniature to become a LEGO minifigure. It can be 3D printed to get something like on the photo below (see 3D preview here: https://skfb.ly/6tUnN )!
  17. Hi All, I'm looking for LEGO Prototype figures/pieces (preferably Star Wars but will hear anything out) as well as any other rare LEGO items. I recognize the high cost some of these items command and am willing to pay them. Please shoot me a PM if you have any of these items are know of someone that does! Thanks, Samuel
  18. My Scarab SRV project. It's a planetary vehicle from video game Elite: Dangerous. On Flickr, and Lego Ideas, please support. Thanks.
  19. Hi Everyone, I haven't seen any posts about displaying minifigures in picture frames recently, so I thought I share with you my version. I made these 5 display frames for my Lord of the Rings/Hobbit minifigure collection. It doesn't contain all the minifigs from the themes, I deninitely wanted to create a nice display instead. The 5 frames are: Elves, Orcs (including 1 goblin soldier), Wizards (=Istari, incl. 2 blue wizards from other themes), Dwarfs (+Bilbo) and the fellowship of the ring (incl. Gandalf the White, King Theoden, Elrond and Gollum). I can place some bigger minifigs (for ex. Goblin King) on the top of the frames. I've used IKEA Ribba frames (23x23 cm). I've edited special backrounds for the individual displays. The minifigs are standing on 2x4 bricks, which are glued to the background. These bricks allowed me to apply stickers to sign the minifigs and to add extra parts (for ex. the arkenstone for Thorin). Unfortunatey, I couldn't use the glass of the original frame, because there wasn't enough space due to the equipments of the minifigs. Thus, I can't prevent them from dust... Creation process: As you can see, the bricks aren't glued on the photo, they are connected directly to the board. The final result: Thanks for stopped by!
  20. So this game is over, and the SCARECROW won it. If however you are fan of another minifigure, stay tuned. Another game will start. Series 3 ELF, Series 15 SATYR/FAUN, Series 13 HOT DOG SUIT GUY and Series 1 DEMOLITION DUMMY are the last 4 to join this game, that will start in October! We will have 6 minifigs from series 6 (the most occurring), 5 from series 12,13 and 16, 4 from series 2,10 and 17, 3 from series 7,9 and 11, 2 from series 1,3,4,8,14,15 and TLM. No minifigures from series Simpson 1, Simpson 2, Disney, DFB, Team GB, or TLBM qualfied for this second game. This was the recap thread: So... goodbye and stay tuned, coming back in 50 days!
  21. Hello all, Many of you may have come across my father JimH in previous forums related to this topic. If you have read any of his posts, you would understand that I am one of the five winners of Lego Magazine's 14k Solid Gold C-3PO Lego mini figure giveaways from the Spring/Summer of 2007. As I am much older now and will be graduating from college in the Spring, my desire to sell the piece has increased. The revenue generated from selling the figure will help put me in a nicer financial standing as I head off into the real world. I will have my father comment on this thread as proof that I am his son and owner of the C-3PO figure. If you have any questions about the piece itself, estimates to what it is worth, or would like to make an offer on the piece, please do not hesitate to post in this thread or email me directly at -removed- May the force be with you! P.S. I am aware that my father has posted pictures of the figure in the past. Unfortunately, I am currently working as an intern away from home this summer. However, once I am back in a few weeks I plan to post updated pictures of the figure for further proof.

    What Minifigure is This?

    Hi all! Use to this topic to ask people to help you to identify minifigures It happens I have one today! A while back the minifigures from the UCS Snowspeeder were leaked. But I was wondering, who is the brown+green minifigure on the left of this picture? Could it be an upcoming figure, or have we seen a similar one released already? Thanks!
  24. Been playing with customizing a few minifigures lately. I know it's not a purist mod, but it's been fun to add a little extra to these. Here's the first completed, Jedi Master PLO Koon

    Custom Minifigure Pricing

    Hi, was looking for some input and thoughts on this topic. Is there any particular reason that custom minifigure prices are all over the place, even for ones equal in quality. Granted, some of the digitally printed ones do not have the best print, but I have seen good quality digital prints going from anywhere between $25 and $60, same really for pad printed figures. Just curious what determines the prices really as a lot of people seem to buy them regardless, but there seems to be such a gap even when they are equal in quality.
