The Lego minifigure maker lets you create a mini you

At T3 Towers, we love Lego – who doesn’t? We’ve spent a lot of time finding the best Lego sets, the best Lego Technic sets, and the best Lego Star Wars sets, among many others.

But sometimes general sets just aren’t enough, such as when you want to create a perfect replica of yourself or someone you know in Minifigure format.

Well, Lego is testing a way to do this, called the Lego minifigure factory (opens in a new tab) (Going through Jay’s Bricks Blog (opens in a new tab)), currently available in beta for a lucky few.

You can see an example we quickly created below and the different options – heads, headgear, torso, legs, accessories – available for customization. Each minifigure costs $11.99, and Lego has limited them to one per household in the United States.

“We are still in the process of putting the finishing touches on this new area, so some parts and features may not be available,” says Lego.

“There is a limit of one figurine per household at this time. You may also find that the page is unavailable from time to time.”

Of course, you can’t create just any old minifigure and Lego will moderate designs to avoid anything inappropriate or offensive.

Lego already offers a Build a minifigure (opens in a new tab) service in some countries, but this new tool goes beyond that, especially when it comes to customizing torsos.

We can’t wait for Lego to open this up to everyone – check back to Q3 for updates as we get them. In the meantime, check out our great deals on the best Lego sets.
