Twenty……thats 20! new World War 2 themed items were released on September 1st, 2014. This round we see mini replicas representing the ‘other side’ including a printed M35 German Helmet, two-tone Stick Grenade, Field Cap, Satchel, Modular Vampir rifle, and much much more!
“Wave 1 was about the heroes, Wave 2 introduces the villains” says Armothe, owner of BrickForge. “Well, I suppose one could argue they were heroes for their country – either way minifig fans have a few more RiGGED accessories to mess around with”. The RiGGED system allows customizers to easily swap out gear & exchange accessories to decorate their favorite mini-troops. This series features items from various Axis troops: Fallschrimjager, Afrika Corps & Nachtjager.
BrickForge is pleased to announce the innovative ‘RiGGED’ system allowing customizers to design and decorate their minifigs like never before.
RiGGED stands for:
Rapid – Interchangeable – Guns – Gear – Equipment – Design
The RiGGED system is a type of MMA (Modular Minifigure Accessory) structure and consists of traditional 3mm & 1.5mm peg & hole combinations integrated into quality ABS minifig accessories. Armors, belts, straps & other types of pack devices contain a series of 1.5mm pegs; constructing a three-dimensional canvas to which minifig enthusiasts can attach a number of other RiGGED accessories. The mix of which spawns hundreds of color/type combinations making each minifig more unique than the previous.
“MMA – Modular Minifig Accessories are clearly the next evolution of 1.5” scale figure elements.” says Kyle Peterson, Owner of BrickForge Minifig Accessories. “Instead of a single piece of armor with various details molded into the design, the RiGGED system offers enthusiasts the opportunity to build their own custom body armor; where details consist of actual elements that can be pieced together to form a complete assembly.”
BrickForge has introduced the RiGGED system with its recent assortment of World War 2 accessories. Wave 1 consists of 17 elements in 6 colors. The Field Suspenders and Haversack are composed of pegs while most hand-held pieces are molded with a corresponding cavity. In addition, most firearms have removable attachments such as scopes, magazines & bipods – useful for creating multicolored accessories. Quizzical fans can cut-to-the-chase and pick up our WW2 Wave 1 Starter Kit and test things out before committing to a larger purchase.
System of the Future
Wave 1 elements like the Haversack can attach to existing BF elements like the Shock Trooper Armor & Tactical Vest. Wave 2 & 3 will introduce even more modular pieces with the RiGGED System spanning future projects. Stay tuned for announcements regarding future colors & wave release dates.
