From the Brickforge website, here is a link to the Dwarf helmet. It seems like there's only a picture of the silver one, not the bronze.

"is BrickForge going to be making some Roman items?"

Well, the answer to that question is of course yes, which are now available in our store. But to answer your question, I'd think the Spiked Mace, Dwarven Helmet, Arabian Helmet and Turban all fit within the Castle realm.


Arabian Helmets? Great! Now my knights can actually go on a Crusade :P

Well, it was easier to navigate because there was only a single order form with some 50 items on it. As we continue to increase or lineup a one-page order form won't cut it. The new online store operates much like an Amazon.com where you can browse at your own leisure, add items to your cart and checkout using credit card or PayPal. Viel Gluck!

The new site is great. The only thing I don't like, is the fact that if you have a horizontal window resolution of less than ~1100 (!) pixels, you have to scroll to read the descriptions..

Understandable. I'm not unhappy, just thought the old was better. Maybe it's my browser, but it just loads a lot slower than the original store. I really appreciate what you and Redbean are doin' for us customizers! :P

I assume the dwarf helmet is incompatable with the new LEGO beards, can someone confirm this?

My order is processed already -- Yay!

I'm telling you.. I think I have a real LEGO problem. The day before I saw the shop was up and ready, I told my self I was going to start saving my money up and bam!

Ah well.. I'd much rather have a bunch of cool customs than fourty-nine pieces of green paper anyways. :wink:

Besides.. I totally needed that awesome Jersey cow! :P


I love all the pictures on the new site. Shows the compatibility your products have with other brands, while providing some inspiration as well.

First all of TLC's great new stuff, Then Little Armory back up, now this! It's a vast conspiracy to separate me from my money. Too much good stuff!

When I first traded emails with Isaac 4 years ago he had this idea, it is great to see it come to fruition. The new stuff is outstanding! I just saw the new items about 2 weeks ago, and now to have them available, ugh! Nearly too much guys.

I would like to see pictures in all the previews. Of course that may help save me money--I won't be able to see all the awesome stuff that way. Nice work you two!

Thanks guys. As you can imagine the bandwidth is taking a beating which is why the site might be a little slow.

Dwarven Helmet is compatible with both our beards and the new official ones!

Good to hear. Other than the new dwarf helmets, that'd be the first ( I think) that'll fit all three- Brickforge, and the old AND new LEGO ones.

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.
