Minifiglabs was formed in 2013 when a group of AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO)and friends got together and decided to merge their love for LEGO and unique customised gifts and share it with the world. We have not looked back since, and the company has continued to grow over the years. We now have a small but diverse group of designers, animators and production engineers at our lab who ensure that the utmost care is given to every custom minifig or set which is produced and sent to our customers from all over the world.
Our Minifiglabs team comprises passionate individuals with a wide range of skill sets who are able to meet all your customised LEGO minifig needs. Our designers work with the LEGO art style in mind, ensuring that your own creations blend in seamlessly with all existing LEGO minifigures or sets. In addition, every member of our team is fully immersed in the entire pipeline from designing to printing. We firmly believe that knowing what is involved during printing makes us better designers, and vice versa.
We work very closely with award winning brick artists whose builds have been widely recognised by the international LEGO community to create our custom sets. This ensures that the build we create is not only structurally sound, but beautiful as well!
