FAQ

 

What is the difference between PAD and UV printing?

PAD printing is a more costly method as it is smooth to the touch and resembles authentic LEGO minifigures which uses the same printing method. UV digital print is a less expensive print and the paint has an embossed feel which sometimes can be advantageous as it can give a figure more of a texture. Both prints are durable and safe.  

Why do I find the same figure on another site and it costs a lot less than your store?

Our figures use only recycled authentic LEGO pieces.  You can tell by the micro stamped "LEGO" on all of our figure parts.  We polish the figures, and print using top quality paints that are resilient and safe.  Other cheaper figures are made with non ABS plastic that are less resilient, and low quality paints which can rub off and may be hazardous.

Do you design and print the figures in your store?

We are a re-seller of many brands of custom minifigures.  We do not print the figures ourselves. We sometime collaborate with our manufacturer to produce limited edition figures, but all are designed and printed by our partner manufacturer.
