Mini-Figure Customization

Welcome to the "Mini-Figure Customization" page! Here is where you will learn more about mini-figures, how to customize them, links to mini fig designers' websites, and so much more!


 Their History:

    We see them in Lego sets, we buy them from the latest mini-figure series, watch them in movies and video games, and read about them in books. Their cute, small, hard as a rock, and make the Lego world come alive!!! The mini-figure!!! A lot of us think that they have been around forever; but they haven't. 

    Who knew that in 1975, the invention of the mini-figure would be a worldwide seller with over 3.7 billion produced to this day. But they didn't look back then like they do today.

    When the prototype created (1975) and the first one was made they were the same height as today's ones but had a different design. They had pants without moving legs, a shirt without arms, and a head without a face! 3 years later (1978) when they began being sold in Castle, Space, and Town sets, they now had a smile, and a few more years later they had more expressions. They even had hooks for hands and pegs for legs in the Pirate theme.

    Then as time progressed and improvements were made, in 2003, new skin tones were created for them and people began mimicking them as famous people from Star Wars, Toy Story, and others.

    When even more years went by, improvements kept coming. Today we see a realistic, colourful, accessory included, and ready for action mini-figure.  

Taken from Wikipedia and placed into my own words.

Lego Retro


A new update is here on the mini-fig customization page!!! These are some Retro Lego guys I made. Some of the pieces are really old. I am not really a collector of stuff like that but like seeing them. Retro is the best! Some of these pieces are from my mom's school where she works (she is a teacher). I get to borrow Lego from there and since the school is like 40 years old, they have some real classics in there!!!
