I mean, where do you get your LEGO items for your display minifigures? I'd love to know, considering I catch myself staring at the awesomeness of the minifigure and it's accessories rather that at the Brickforge item. X)

Thanks guys, I absolutely LOVE all of the new items released. :D

Bricklink.com is your new best friend! Some of the accessories are from other artists such as Arealight or we handsculpt a few things ourselves.

Funny you say that Armothe. I just placed an order last Saturday from there. X)
The only downside to BrickLink is that you have to buy from one place, or else you'll have to pay a ton of shipping costs.... Bleh! |U
Unless I am mistaken, because a lot of the stores I looked at didn't say anything about S&H in their ToS of the store. :9

Good tip is to research what parts you really need, and see who has all of them. May cost a tiny bit more, but convenience costs.

I concur, using either the Advanced Search tool or the 'Add Item to my Wanted list' locate the Catalog Entry for the part you want. Choose the color and view the list of shops that have 'em for sale.

If there is another part you want, open up another window/tab and do the same thing. Cross-reference the shop lists for each part to see if one single store has both.

This is very tedious, but does save you a lot of shipping costs, and BrickLink doesn't have an intuitive multi-part search in place so I believe this is the next best thing.

Another tip is to pay closer attention to the stores with more inventory.
