Customization

A suggestion for a new rule:

No customs: eg. paint, sharpie, brickarms, decal, custom sticker, clay, broken parts, deliberate damages, clone brands, etc.

Not including pure figs made of undamaged LegoŽ.



Well? Yes/no, yay/nay?

Maybe But I Do See What You Are Thinking But I Think That You Should Be Able To Use Customs

If your creating the contest of the month, and you don't want custom parts, decals...ect. to be entered in it, just say in the rules. A good idea.

But not a good idea if this rule was for every moc the group makes.

Why is it not a good idea? Search the minifigs folder for 'dragon ball z' or 'final fantasy' and really, I think you would not want most of those in your group.

the fact is customization usually ends well and is fun. if people like to customize let them.

If they will, they will.

They do not need to inflict their abominations on the rest of us.

those give customization a bad name. sticking a blob of putty on something isnt customizing. besides, customs are better than a jumble of pieces that hardly resemble what they atempt to be.

Ah, I see your point. Customisation to the extreme does look bad. I think custom decals are ok. Lego uses decals. Custom parts from somewhere like brickforge are ok, they look like proper lego parts anyway. But clay and play dough on Lego is not. The only custom parts I use are decals, which don't ruin the Minifig. They norally get taken off anyway.

I don't think thats a good idea, but I appreciate where your coming from. Brickarms are really good, I hate clone brands, but I will admit Oxford/Sluban army helmets are really good! and all army figures would look rubbish without them.

You are aware that lego produced a sports helmet that is also an effective combat helm?

By buying clone brands like sluban and bestlock, megabloks etc. you take profit away from the lego group. They are in financial trouble already, so if you value lego, try not to support clones.

Oh, by the way, I let that comment of yours through. No idea why it was flagged.
That means you just did a doublepost.

i dont believe lego isnt going down soon. butyou must admit customization is better at times. heres proof:
official: http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=76083&id=/user_images/14995/1223505587m_DISPLAY.jpg
custom: http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=97192&id=/user_images/14995/1234058021m_DISPLAY.jpg
can you honestly say the official is better?

Yes, I can, for it is superior.

Pure lego will triumph over shoddy customization every time.

Where did I mention that?

Although being halo, I would say it is low quality.


No, the item in question was that batman thing in the post above mine.

ill take the deafening silence as a no.

Seeing as it looks suspiciously anime-y I would say no.


Things like that tend to have a reducing effect on ones E-peen.

I thought brickarms would be shoddy, with a seem or something. But get one for yourself. because they are made in exactly the same wway as lego, you can't tell them apart, apart from lego don't make great guns! By the way can you tell me what item code this lego sports helmet is, because I want one!!

I have no idea what the item code is, but you can see it on this: http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Product.aspx?p=5621&cn=381&d=9

I made fairly extensive use of them for combat helms; browsing my Dioramas folder for a few minutes can show some of the uses I put them to.

Oh, and they make good looking rocks too.

those work pretty well. for weapons you can put a hand on the barrel as a magazine. i think weve come to the conclusion that customization is sometimes worth the results and sometimes destroys good legos.

Add a hand to the barrel of what?

a rifle sometimes another gun too.

Oh. That would be about right.


However, did you know that a technic pin- the smallish one- can fit on the end of one of those short starwars rifles?

You need to force it on a bit, but it has a useful side effect of making the pin grip harder when used to hold technic together.

One must be careful not to do it to often, however.

ive done that before. and if you add a cone to the back its a really sweet sniper rifle.
