Quick Hits: Custom House Updates

It's been a busy day in the Minifig Nation. Several news updates related to custom houses and those associated with them.

First off Badger's been showing off alternative uses for the upcoming white Stahlhelm offering from BrickArms. The alternate universe WWII/Star Wars trooper is further decked out with BrickArms firepower. Badger also has a custom fig of Captain Mal of the Serenity. Highlights include a bronze Navy revolver from BA and Arealight hair piece.

Next up, Pedro has some new pics of custom minifigures that can be created using parts from his BrickLink store United Armory. There's also some discussion regarding where you can buy products from Hazel, as there's been some confusion as of late. It's safe to say that you need to look for the brand 'Amazing Armory LTD'. This is the official brand of Hazel and you can buy his product at places like United Armory and Firestar Toys. There is an Amazing Armory 2010 BrickLink store; however, I understand Hazel is no longer associated with that group...and that's all I'll say about that. Hoping to get an interview with Hazel once all the details become available.

Decal maestro Roaglann has some new news. First off he has started a new Flickr group to help him manage decal requests. You can find this new group here and offer up requests. Roag has also offered up his full minifigure template files which can be found here. I think it's fantastic that Roaglann is sharing his experience with the community. If you would like to show your appreciation, and pick up some of Roag's decals, he has a BrickLink store where you can buy some of his creations.

This last item I'll leave it up to you as to if you feel its a deal or not. I received a notification that ThinkGeek is selling what appears to be a custom weapons pack from BrickArms for $9.99 USD. Originally found on deals.woot, the following items are available: Assault Phaser, M2019 Blaster, Space Magnum, Plasma Pistol, Needler, Walther P38, Auto-9 Pistol, Energy Sword, and M41A Pulse Rifle. Deals.woot also had an additional code (GEEKPUZZLER) allowing you to get $10 off an order of $40 or more. As always, buyer beware and see what shipping and handling costs might have to be paid.

That's all for now citizens, more as it becomes available...
