Minifigures.com
is a UK-Based site that offers great custom-printed minifigures for use with all of your Lego and Lego-Compatible sets. In their store they offer a great range of options, from ET, to Bruce Lee, to Charlie Chaplin, to Freddie Mercury, to Mr. Bean, and many more. From political figures, celebrities, and well-known chefs, to assorted characters from TV, movies, and video games. All of the minifigs are high quality, and custom-printed in detail, and come with matching accessories.

If you want a run of custom minifigures for an event, for promotional purposes, or even as an army-builder for your personal collection, they also offer the ability to design and order your own. They have a minimum order of 50 figures. BUT it is still a cool service to have offered.

elvisAs with all Minifigures.com minifigs, The King comes in a custom, resealable blister pack. Which I still think is a cool feature. You can take the figure out for a while, to play with or display, but then put it back in to protect it, or to display it differently.
elvis-2The back of the Minifigures.com blister packs have a little bio and info about the minfig. This one I find especially funny as they talk about his hit songs ‘Suspicious Studs’, ‘Can’t Help Falling In Lego’, and ‘Blue Suede Bricks’. I thought the Lego-based play on the song titles of some of Elvis’ top hits were amusing.

The head for this minifig is printed on both sides, so you have The King at rest, just before he rocks the stage, or you have a face for him singing one of his many great hits (complete with little sweat drops). I think the resting face would have been better if they had found a way to replicate The King’s lip curl, but really, I am going to use the singing face more anyway. I am pretty sure the hairpiece they used on this one is a standard Lego piece, but it works perfect for the figure.

The King’s sequin jumpsuit is printed 360 around the whole figure, to give it a complete, uniform look. It really makes the jumpsuit pop, and look more like the real thing. I kind of wish the sequins in the back formed an eagle, like one of his more well-known jumpsuits.  I also really like the microphone accessory he comes with. It is a simple piece, but the fact it is two-tone, unlike most Lego (and even Lego-compatible) accessories, is really just a cool little touch.

I really like Minifigures.com’s The King minifigure. It is a great piece for any collection, and as a fan of Elvis and Lego, I am really glad to have it in mine! I would highly recommend this piece. I am hoping they eventually make Jailhouse Rock, or G.I. Blues editions of The King minifigure.

If you’ll excuse me, The King is starting his performance.
