Custom-Crazy opened its doors just this January, and it already has some really promising LEGO-compatible accessories! I received my first order yesterday! Yay! Here is a little review on what I have gotten:
First, I was a little concerned because my order arrived in just a plain, white, unpadded envelope – but nothing was missing. The package was registered and insured – a good thing in case something goes wrong. Still, I hope Custom-Crazy will consider upgrading to padded envelopes, for the safety of the items. Especially coming all the way from Malaysia! I got some nice stamps though! 😉
So far Custom-Crazy released items in two main themes; ninja and castle/fantasy. They have the unique approach of creating modular accessories and weapons – opening the doors for lots of possibilities!
I particularly like the handles and the various mace heads, as they can be combined and used in many ways!
I have also received a cleaver. Here is a comparison picture between Custom-Crazy’s version (black) and BrickForge’s version (silver). As you can see Custom-Crazy’s version has a really nice curve and balance. (Click on the picture for larger view.)
QUALITY: The quality of the pieces is excellent. They are professionally designed and molded. The plastic appears to be the same ABS plastic used by LEGO.
MOLD DETAIL: The parts I have received have very nice details! Elegant, simple, yet detailed enough to make them unique.
COLORS: Custom-Crazy offers its items in the following colors: black, coated-silver (it is like LEGO’s pearl-silver), flat-silver, pearl-dark-gray, and speckle-black-silver. The colors match LEGO’s perfectly. (I particularly like the speckled parts!)
SUMMARY: Custom-Crazy is new to the LEGO accessories market, however I see great potential. The modular weapons and accessories are especially nice! Right now several of the accessories are very similar to what LEGO or other customizers offers, but the designs are nice and it is worth to give them a try. And I hope in the future they will differentiate themselves with more unique offerings.
Shipping is very reasonable, and it hardly takes any longer than a domestic First Class shipment. So, if you want to equip your ninja, knights, or fantasy warriors with unique weapons and accessories, head over to Custom-Crazy’s store for a great selection! I’m sure your minifigs will be happy! 😀
