The crowdfunding madness continues over on Kickstarter, with another LEGO-related campaign – this time by a mysterious group called Crazy Bricks.
Crazy Arms is a potential new product that aims to address a major shortcoming with minifigures: the lack of posing ability with their arms. Their solution is a new system where new arm shapes can be added to a torso, along with the original minifigure hands, to achieve different poses.
I’m very late to the party, having had my head under a rock throughout the majority of this year, but the campaign has already gotten coverage from at least two far more popular LEGO fan sites. As such, over USD 12,000 of its 15,000 target has been raised, with around three days to go.
However I feel about Kickstarter, crowdfunding or the online LEGO community, I would be a hypocrite if I didn’t spread the word about this campaign, being a fan of minifigures. For the record I’ve also put my money where my mouth is, and went for the Tenfold Armed package (I would have jumped at the chance to go for the Strike A Pose package, but this year has been unkind).
If you’re into customising minifigures to the next level, make sure you support Crazy Brick’s crowdfunding campaign before it’s too late! I’m looking forward to getting these in the post, and maybe I’ll do a review – but no promises.
