Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

Those minifis look pretty cool, Galactic. IDK what the original comic book characters look like so I can't tell you if they are close to them or not. mini/tongue

I am designing a minifig, and I'd like so critique on it. It is Princess Storm from the Knight's Kingdom LEGO theme. She is usually a knight, so I made a dress for her to wear (I'm thinking of making a film with her in it). All the textures (even the face) are applied digitally so far, so if they look kind of strange that's why.

This is Princess Storm in her battle outfit. I modified the classic torso very slightly. Again, they are applied digitally.

What do you think?

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

That's funny, I'm actually waiting on a bricklink order containing that very same head (although I'm planning on putting her in a modified Unitron space suit, of course! mini/wink ) I think it looks pretty good, although shouldn't her hair piece be red, as that's the color of the printing on her face? (although that might look kinda funny...) I never really understood why they gave a Knight's Kingdom character red hair. Anyway, I hope you do make a film about her. That would be pretty cool.

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

I think for her dress, a piece like This would look more flowing and natural. And I agree with Brickcrazy that, if possible, her hair needs to be the same color as the hair printed on her head. But that is pretty impressive that you added the prints digitally!!!! I may have never noticed if you hadn't pointed it out in your post. mini/smile

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

Thanks for the comments. I would have used the 2x2x2 slope piece if I had it. unfortunately, I do not own many of those, and the one I know I own is in brown with a decal on it. mini/confused

As for the hair, yea, the red hair didn't look good. At least, none of the styles of red worked well. I may or may not change the hair color on the face to match. I'm not sure, I'll have to test and see how it looks.

Here's another minifigure I made. Again, the decals are all digital right now, because these are purely custom, so I'd like to get some feedback on them before I print.

This minifigure is based on the LEGO Universe faction leader Dr. Overbuild.

And what do you think about this headgear instead of the helmet?

All feedback is appreciated! mini/smile

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

Helmet. By far.
The minifig looks good, although I'd look for a grey X piece instead of the brown.
The torso design is nice, although it seems to be lacking something on his right upper body. Perhaps a small smudge of dirt or something?

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

The original minifigure didn't have a helmet, so I think it would be better not to include that. Other than that the fig is really cool! I remember back when LU came out, I was hoping so much that they would come out with sets. Alas, that never happened.

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

I love LU! That doctor overbuild looks awesome. You can look at the actual prints from the game on the Lego Universe Wiki if you want for comparison.

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

Showed this space pirate to a few people during chat yesterday, but thought I might as well post it here anyway. My main concern is the helmet. Does the fact that the helmet is dark gray while the rest of his body is dark bluish gray bother anyone?

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

I didn't notice the old gray and new gray mixture. I think it adds a bit of color variety. It's barely noticeable. Only the most detailed perfectionists may have a heart attack...

Nathan Wells didn't have one on chat last night, so it should be good. mini/lol

Anyone else?

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

I think it depends on the film. In a super clean sci-fi, it would bug me, but within the theme of the stuff you've been posting recently, I think it's fine.

Not at all, I think the blue adds a little extra detail, it could be electronics. The blue adds a little extra touch to the gray robot to not make it all the same color.

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

This minifigure is supposed to be Duke Exeter from LEGO Universe.

How does he look? Is the shield good enough, or should I try another style?

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

That's some shield!  I like that there are transparent elements in it, possibly jewels?

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

I do understand you want to give the shield some detail, but it's just to big in my opinion. You may want to scale it down a bit. But if he needs to go snow boarding, that shield would be perfect. mini/tongue But in all seriousness, I would say don't make it any bigger than 2x3 studs.

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

Rioforce, it looks good. I scrolled down the page, saw your picture, and imidiately thought:

Re: *The Official Minifigure Critique Thread*

Looks Great Rio! I don't think you should downsize it, because Duke had a pretty big shield.
