Lego is testing a brand new on-line Minifigure maker, the Minifigure Manufacturing unit, that allows you to create a Lego particular person of your very personal (through Jay’s Brick Weblog, which I promise has no relation to me).
Within the instrument, you’ll be capable to choose completely different heads, headwear, torsos, legs, and equipment in your customized Minifig. For the torso, you possibly can go actually deep on customization by making use of decals and customized textual content. (Lego will likely be moderating the designs to stop customers from making inappropriate Minifigs, based on Jay’s Brick Weblog.) There are some enjoyable equipment you possibly can decide from, too, like a laptop computer, a pretzel, and a pizza. Accomplished Minifigs will value $11.99, although you possibly can solely purchase one per family.
In case you’ve used Lego’s on-line Construct A Minifigure instrument that’s obtainable in choose nations, the Minifigure Manufacturing unit seems to be fairly comparable. Construct A Minifigure, nonetheless, doesn’t provide the identical stage of torso customization which you could get with Minifigure Manufacturing unit.
It’s best to know that you simply may not be capable to use the Minifigure Manufacturing unit fairly but; Lego says the positioning has “restricted availability.” (I personally had entry for a bit whereas scripting this publish, however now I don’t.) The corporate can be calling Minifigure Manufacturing unit a beta proper now, and in a discover, says that “some elements and options is probably not obtainable” and that “you may additionally discover that the web page is unavailable occasionally.”
As a child, I had cobbled collectively a model of “me” utilizing elements from completely different units, however it by no means appeared precisely proper (although I did have two lightsabers and a hoverboard, which is certainly similar to the true me). With Minifigure Manufacturing unit, I could make a extra correct Lego model of myself — and deck it out with robotic decals. And when you’re trying to make a full-on motion determine of your self, Hasbro just lately introduced a technique to allow you to just do that.
