I Custom-Ordered Myself as a LEGO

LEGO is trying out a new thing called the Minifigure Factory, where you can custom-design and buy your own LEGO mini-figures. It’s only in the Beta right now, and I don’t think it’s open to everybody. I got an invite in a recent LEGO newsletter and for sure I was going to try it out! They only had some limited design options, but I managed to make a pretty good version of myself.

I definitely don’t have that kind of volume in my hair anymore

They got the design of the shirts I wear, including a little graphic to add a pocket, pen and ink splotch. They got the beard and glasses. They don’t let you pick the color or design of the arms, which is a shame. But perhaps things will get better when it opens for real. For now, I’ve got a LEGO me, and he’s pretty neat. Is adorning my office desk for the time being, because if I take him home, I’m probably gonna dress him up like a Ghostbuster or put him in a mech or something.

At the very least, I definitely recommend LEGO’s Minifigure Factory for a good time.
