Reminiscent of LEGO's Collectible Minifigs, CustomMinifigs.com is a joint project between professional customizors Shmails and Armothe. Each fig is special and unique in that Shmails personally designs each one and Armothe arms them with BrickForge weapons and accessories.

Wave 1 laid the foundation. [url="http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=52370"]Wave 2[/url] brought in the warfare aspect. Wave 3 is moreso an addition to Wave 2, as there is only 4 figs.

Presentation

ImageImage

Each minifig is packaged in a medium-sized, ziploc baggie with a card insert. The front of the card insert features the CM.com logo and is designed to have the minifig displayed in the middle. The back of the card insert is a brief rundown of the advisory and also explains that each fig is made from LEGO with custom additions by Shmails and Armothe. So in other words: 100% high quality.

And now onto the minifigs.....

Ms. Kitty

In a post apoc world, she is one of the few babes around. While she is definately the cats meow, this cat is not the kind that comes scurrying towards you. When it comes to zombies or some creepy guy hitting on her, she will use her deadly arsenal to protect herself.

Features:
- Custom Torso Decals (waterslide)
- Custom Arm Decals
- Dark Bluish-Gray Sickle
- Dark Bluish-Gray Cleaver
- Dark Bluish-Gray Backpack
- Black Crowbar
- Dark Bluish-Gray Canteen

Price: $18.00 USD

Sarge - WW2 Hero

This guy loves a battle. He doesn't care for what the war is for, as long as he gets his hands on a gun and gets his hands dirty. But he has a soft side. He named his gun Charlene.

Features:
- Custom Torso Decals
- Custom Arm Decals
- Olive Soldier Helmet w/ screenprinted sergeant emblem
- Olive Backpack w/screenprinted "US"
- Olive Canteen
- Olive Shovel
- Olive Grease Gun

Price: $20.00

Eranion - Centaur

A mighty warrior from the land of [s]Narnia[/s] [s]Middle Earth[/s] [s]Oz[/s] mythical enchantments and castles and stuff. This four legged guy is the man you want on your side as you traverse the land to restore the 4 crystals of light or save some princess from a pig demon. First CM fig to come in flesh tone.

Features:
- Custom Torso Decals
- Custom Arms Decals
- Tan Centaur Body w/ screenprinted armor
- Black Ponytail
- Bronze Hero Sword
- Black Recurve Bow

Price: $20.00 USD

Overall

These figs are one of a kind, and definately not something to pass up on. They each can make great additions to your collection display on your shelf at home or on the desk at the office. While they utilize waterslide decals, they can still be used for MOCs and vignettes as long as you don't throw them around, as they are meant for display and not rough play.

More awesome figs will be made in the future, so keep an eye out for them! So why are you still reading this? Go to CustomMinifigs.com!

You are allowed to comment. :)

Just the drama that happened in the last topic is most certainly not allowed.

Silly Omi, Brickforge doesn't have the strike font option ;9
Just kidding, it was a great review.

Fairly priced considering what you get in pieces plus the work that goes into them. Customs aren't cheap.
