Ladies as Minifigsby Redbean (MCN News)
Because of the slight chubbiness (which we all find cute) of a minifig, making a custom female character with a 'figure' is usually much more challenging than doing a male one. Therefore, the latest section of my article on Conceptualising a Minifig deals with the elusive art of making a female figure:
Although, as is always the case, what is written is inevitably subjective and represents only my personal taste, beginners may nonetheless find it useful as a general guide to the thinking behind the process. The full article can be viewed here and comments and further questions are welcomed as always!

New Products from Cobi / Best-lockby Redbean (Contruction Bricks)
A few months ago, Cobi (which is mainly active in Eastern Europe) and Best-lock (which is the 3rd largest construction toy company in USA) announced a merger that aims to solidify their competitiveness in the global toy market (see the news here) and as user pacman110011 was kind enough to report, the first wave of their jointly designed products have begun to appear in the US.
Although not typically known for their quality, in the past, both Cobi and Best-lock have enjoyed immense popularity among customizers for their wide range of minifig-compatible accessories, which fill in nicely the theme-gap that remains untouched by other leading brands. Their recent merger, as result, should only bring good news to the customization community and we eagerly await what the future will unveil for these two popular brands.
Please join us in our discussion of their products here.
