Since I can't find the old minifig help topic by Joker, I decided to make a new one.
This could also be used to ask/answer questions about Lego weapons, I guess.
So to start off, I'd like to offer some helpful advice on making a crowbar.
If your Dad/Mom has a heat gun like these, you can take a grey rod lego piece (like a lightsaber) and bend the end with pliers or whatever to make it look like a crowbar. I guess if you wanted to go so far as the add the flat part with the space in the middle at the end you could heat it a ton and flatten the end or something. Unfortunately I lost mine so I guess I can have my dad make another.
Cap'n Jazz & Tera Melos are the best bands ever ever.

Feel free to ask questions here if you‘re stuck on a minifig and I‘ll try to help.

I‘ll also move this to the WIP section...

You get a torso (any torso) and take of the arms. Then you put your cape on and around it so that it covers the back, and both sides. Then you get a knife or a sharp pencil or something, and work your way into poking a small hole for the arm joint to fit through the holes in the torso (it may take some time). Then you do the same for the other side. You put both arms in over the trench coat, and there you have it.

If anyone wants, I can make a tutorial with pictures...

1. Take two Lightsabers of the same colour hilt.
2. Cut the hilt as close to the smaller bit as you can, the bit at the bottom.
3. Repeat for other lightsaber hilt.
4. Take the two hilts, and either glue them together, or drill a hold through the middle of each and pin them together.

Voila! One Double-Bladed Lightsaber Handle.

Well... it doesn't look as good, but you don't have to make holes in the cape, right? there are already two, so instead of putting it around the neck, put the arms through the holes in the cape and then to the torso. Get it?

MMCB Capes will help.

It costs money, but it's very good.

Different coloured card. Mainly greens and tans obviously, and perhaos use a cargo net they made back in the day. If not, if sure you could improvise.

And I'm here, by the way. tongue.gif I can help with general stuff, but I'll definatly take any brick-creature questions.

Okay, first things first. To make good, quality minifig weapons like Brickarms, it's gonna cost you a few thousand dollars for the molding machine. Believe me, my friend Koth and I were going to start making them, but we found out how much it would cost. There are cheaper alternatives, but as far as I know, the quality of the overall product diminishes rapidly with cheaper machines. You can of course, cut and snip at existing products for your own minifigs, but you couldn't sell them.
Second, sort of. Unless your willing to splash out something like $27 (That's about £18 btw) for a Jango helmet, there's not an awful lot you can do. If you happen to have a green Boba helmet, you can paint it to try and recreate a Jango helmet. But starting from scratch...
Well, I'm not sure even Joker could make a good one.
