What is the Lego Minifigures Factory?

Lego minifigures factory is a service offered by Lego stores across the world, which lets you design and print your own personal minifigure.

Yes, you heard me correctly, you can go to several Lego stores and take part in a creation of your imaginary Lego minifigure for a small amount of cost.

How to Make Your Own Lego Minifigure

In order to make Lego minifigure in the factory, you will have to go to the store cashier and pay for a Lego minifigures factory kit. The Lego kit is basically a small colorful box with a unique chip inside you can redeem at the Lego minifigures factory machine.

The cost of the minifigure factory activity costs around $15 USD per one minifigure design.

How to Start Building the Minifigure

Once you paid for the Lego minifigures kit, you can go to one of the stations across the store. The stations are basically a computer touch screen with instructions and a language selection.

To start, place the minifigures kit you just got on the barcode scanner, write your name so you can find your order quickly and get right into the design processes.

Designing Your Own Minifigure Factory Lego

Once you start you can design your own Lego minifigure. You are able to spin the Lego minifigure around and design the front and back of it.

There are 3 ways you can decorate and create the minifigure factory Lego:

  1. Drawing – you can pick a brush and color to draw anything you like on the Lego minifigure. There are options to choose the thickness of the brush or even a certain shape like circle, square and straight line.
  1. Typing – you are able to type any sentence or name into the screen, pick its color and font style to add onto the Lego minifigure torso.
  2. Stickers – finally you can use pre-designed iconic Lego items to add into the minifigure design, they act just like stickers you add to the minifigure body and most likely will be the best looking things you are able to add to the minifigure.

Besides the 3 main ways to design your own Lego minifigure, you can also pick from a large pre-selected torso design to start with a nice design idea.
