Looking to buy your old/worn minifigs please
hey, I've recently got into making custom minifigs (mostly sports ones, eg roller derby and football).
One of the most tedious bits is rubbing the printing off the torsos, it also makes me sad to destroy a perfectly good print. Just wondering if anyone has a bunch of worn torsos they would like to get rid of. I'm happy to pay or trade (perhaps even for a custom fig of your choosing).
I also need large amounts of black hands and yellow arms, which are hard to find on bricklink and can't be bought direct from lego. If anyone wants to trade yellow arms for other colours, or black hands for others, let me know.
I know it's a long shot, but worth asking.
The parts do need to be otherwise if fairly good nick though, but the front and back will be covered so the condition of those bits can be poor.

I'll also check my supply of yellow arms and black hands when I get back home from work.
And yes, @jasen, that's the kind of thing, I've even ordered some worn yellow space dudes, the older prints seem to rub off easier than the new ones. The CMFs are a bugger to get clean, can't really manage it using brasso. gonna raid the chemical cabinet at work to try it!
@duchessa, not sure how much postage is, but let me know and I'll send you some cash. Or a custom minifig of your choice.
Cheers everyone :D
And yes, Brasso is hard work :(
My wife actually plays Roller Derby and I've been mulling over the idea of trying to make custom figs for her and her teammates!
As it happens I just set up a fb page today, as I've had a lot of requests now pictures of last weeks stall have gone up online. I'll be adding more updates and pictures over the wkd, as I didn't get chance on Saturday (when I ran a stall at our bout) to take any decent pics. And the pics I have are of ones I made quickly to get enough for a team for the diorama. Must do some good quality ones soon for the proper lego fans!
They just formed last year - she's actually the President of the team. Cool FB page, love the pics!
Glad you like the page. When I look at the pics I see all the flaws, but to be honest derby people are happy with the quality. I wouldn't be confident about selling to real lego fans! But if you do want to buy one, I'd be more than happy to make one. The prices are on my page, appologies if they seem high. I have a lot of orders to fill at the minute, and I'm wondering if that's the right price point to charge. I'd appreciate your feedback :) Because the price includes shipping, each additional one would only be $14
I don't think the prices are bad... I mean, it's hard to find derby stuff in general. I've always been interested in how someone were to make Lego quad skates without them being HUGE... looks like you solved that!
Will try wd40 thanks!
