Amongst all LEGO customizers BrickForge has the greatest variety of LEGO compatible parts in the widest range of colors. This includes minifigure weapons, helmets, armor pieces, various minifig equipment and accessories, musical instruments, and even several mythical & farm-animals to fill up your LEGO creations!
BrickForge is the result of an unstoppable force (Armothe) meeting an immovable object (Redbean) – two die-hard LEGO-fans. Together they boast a combined 20 years of minifig customizing experience, and have offered their unique brand of BrickForge accessories to the LEGO community since 2006.
“We consider ourselves intermediaries between the community and the lumbering Danish company. For a long time the building experience has been the focus of creativity; but an increasing number of people are realizing their inner child through the role-play of the minifigs included in those sets. The mission of BrickForge is to fill in the gaps left open by LEGO and other brick-building companies.” – Armothe
“A lot of thought (and work!) goes into the creation of these tiny accessories. We do our best to consider how would these look if LEGO made them and then we attempt to raise the bar even further.” – Redbean
QUALITY: The quality of BrickForge items is excellent! The same ABS plastic is used as for LEGO. Each BrickForge piece is the result of a long process of designing and testing to fit its purpose as well as to seamlessly fit with LEGO elements.
MOLD DETAIL: BrickForge products have the same elegant yet minimalist style as LEGO parts. The details are subtle, beautiful, and realistic enough both for the real world and the world of LEGO.
COLORS: BrickForge products are currently available in about 50 different colors! The colors are either the same as LEGO colors; including glow-in-the-dark (this is really cool!) and various translucent colors. In addition BrickForge carries some special colors like army-green and bronze.
Occasionally certain elements also get released in chrome-gold and chrome-silver.
BrickForge also carries a wide variety of printed elements with great colors and detail.
PRODUCTS: BrickForge has a very extensive product line (currently over 150 different items!) with the main focus being LEGO minifig accessories. You will find everything from ancient, fantasy and modern weapons, various tools, musical instruments, and everything else your minifig may want and need!
One special feature of some BrickForge elements is their modular design; meaning they can be assembled in different ways; expanding the variety and choices even more! For example the Space Marine helmet has a removable visor, the gladiator helmet has an attachable faceguard, and the great variety of pauldrons can be attached to different armor pieces in various configurations.
SUMMARY: I highly recommend BrickForge! There is no-one who beats their product variety and color selection, and their prices are very reasonable. In addition the BrickForge folks are super-nice people who focus on customer service and satisfaction. You should definitely try them out! 😛
