New custom LEGO minifigures by Christo!

by admin on January 22, 2012

in Christo's Customs

As you may know, one of the most amazing LEGO customizers is Christo from South Africa (you can read more about Christo here: Christo’s Custom Bricks & Minifigs – Overview).  To satisfy LEGO fans Christo just came out with a number of new custom LEGO minifigures totally worth checking out. Here is what’s new:

Just released this week is the new LEGO Ironman, based on the Mark V Ironman suit. This is the fourth custom LEGO Ironman from Christo (you can see other versions here: LEGO Ironman Minifigs by Christo), with truly stunning silver printing on both the body and the helmet. Also note the printing on the arms! (Christo’s uses very high quality machine-printing and the minifigures are ready for both play and display.) Click on pictures for larger view:

Another custom LEGO minifig Christo just added is the LEGO Star Wars Death Star gunner. This is actually an older design by Christo, re-released by popular demand. The helmet on this minifigure is spot on, reflecting the menacing job this guy had; pulling the trigger on the Death Star to blow up entire planets! 8O

The LEGO Ironman and LEGO Star Wars gunner are not the only minifigures designs by Christo; these are just the newest additions. You may also want to check out the custom LEGO Captain America, LEGO Spiderman, LEGO Hulk, and other versions of Ironman, all with rich detail. If you are not familiar with Christo’s work I would suggest you check out the introductory post on Christo’s customs so you get a better idea of the custom LEGO minifigures he makes. (See: Christo’s Customs – Overview)

Christo’s customs are available through his eBay store: Custom Bricks & Minifigs. Please note that they are usually in auction format, so if you are interested in the minifigs make sure you bid before the auctions close! If you do miss an auction you may want to contact Christo and ask when a new listing will begin. Check out the current listings below:

Christo also mentioned to me that he will start adding more new custom minifigures in the upcoming weeks! So yeah, expect some more goodness! :P

Carlo, as far as I know Christo haven’t been using his Bricklink store for quite a while. He mainly sells on eBay. ;)

Here’s 2 ways to make custom minifigures based on real ones:
Lex Luthor (DC Superheroes):
1) Tuxedo (I used a Shanghai Gangster from Indiana Jones)
2) Man of Steel Superman head

Bruce Wayne (DC Superheroes):
1) Same as Lex Luthor, but add the following hair piece:
General Zod’s or Dracula’s (Man of Steel, Monster Fighters)

Nya (Ninjago)
1) Take any regular Lego girl minifigure (try maybe a figure from the minifigure theme) that has a resemblance to Nya’s face.
2) Take the hair piece of Irina Spalko (Indiana Jones).
3) Give her a weapon, and she’s good to go.

Cheap sets to get this stuff:
7624 Jungle Duel
76009 Black Zero Escape
7682 Shanghai Chase
Minifigure packet (you are on you’re own)
Thanx for reading
