Discussion of custom parts made for the Castle Theme

I had to sample some of these items for my collection. I particularly liked the look of the great helm and the turbans. Order placed.

If you're getting the Great Helm, you'll be pleased. I'd recomend the pauldrons and vambraces as well. Both are excellent items and complement each other well.

I plan on placing an order soon. I had a few questions though. Is the shipping and minimum order the same as before? Why are there some items for sell on the old site that haven't made it to the new site? (ex. different colored sage beards).

One suggestion on your site. You should put actual minifig faces with the helms to show how they line up with the eye holes. I own the Great Helm and can testify that they do line up.

Min order is the same @ $10.00. Shipping will be relatively the same, but instead of a flat rate we calculate by location & weight using real-time data. This is available on step after the shopping cart, but I'm trying to find a pre-calc I can install so you don't have to be logged in or have any items in your basket to grab a near estimate.

The lack of faces and any type of screen printing is mainly because I want to keep the minifigs as anonymous as possible. There are several reasons - one of which is so we aren't inundated with e-mails asking where or how we found that old, rare, custom, discontinued torso. Hopefully the community can trust us enough to insure that our helmets lineup on the faces properly.

The new website is really cool! I have been waiting for nearly 2 years and really think of making a purchase. Armothe, since you have made these really nice farm animals, will you consider making chickens and ducks soon? It seems rather strange that these animals were absent as their meat and eggs were crucial in any farm.

Will you also consider making the cows in this Lego colour? The duplo calf in this set seems to be in a lighter brown colour.

Hey Armothe,

Received my order in the mail today.These new items are top-notch.

My absolute favorites are the Pilum, Gladius, Turban, and Arabian Helm -- Was actually quite surprised with the Arabian Helmet, as I just ordered one to see what it looks like in person, but it turned out to be my favorite helm. :)

Oh, and that Jersey cow is just plain awesome.. I wish I could afford a whole herd!

Thanks again!

Got mine yesterday. The armor is great, but I'm floored by the cows and pig! They really are LEGO quality in terms of both design and production.

Expect to see them here soon!

They're not available on the site yet, but it's only a matter of time so keep your eyes peeled! These new items (bandolier, beret, headlamp, scourge, surcoat) will be there and more. :)

The bandoleer is cool. I've tried to create back-harness-scabbard-things before, but they always stuck out too far and looked kind of blocky.

I'm glad you posted this here SV, I had forgotten about it as well :wink: I think this is great news not only for the customization scene, but Lego fans in general. Any positive exposure from our hobby is a great thing. The article is well written and doesn't try to denounce it any by being a "toy". Congrats to Armothe and Red Bean on the accomplishment and the knowledge that there is more to come (and more often) in the future. :D

It's great to see a story like that making it in the paper. I just recently got in to customizing so I haven't ordered anything from them yet. But I will definitely be ordering some Great Helms and shields in the near future. :D

It certainly is! I had also wondered how many visitors the store got, and now I know. Five million a month! Congratulations!
