does anyone know how i could make orange halo Spartan?


You could make the armor out of clay, if that's your thing. But I would recommend you order the armor for one on Brickforge, and maybe buy decals for it from Scorp's shop. I've gotten parts for several Spartans off Brickforge, they're great. ;)

First-off sorry for the double post

Anyways I am attempting to create a lego R4 unit (from starwars) and I need a specific cone piece.

this piece, brick number 6039, white
Does anybody know of a website I can order from, preferably one that I don't need to make an account for?

EDIT: I noticed this does not have to do with a specific minifigure, but this topic is the best one this forum has for this question.

Bricklink. You'll need to make an account to order on it, but it's easily the best place to buy LEGO parts on the internet.

LEGO has some good Mando parts, and they just released a revamped Slave I with a revamped Boba Fett, which you could modify or paint. Scorp also has mando decals.

Excuse the double post, but I haz a question. Does anyone know a good technique to remove and replace minifig arms without them getting loose and wobbly in the process? Or is it just luck?

Your's get loose/wobbly? Mine never do...

I would have, but my character got Falcon punched by a were-pire. Wow, that was a weird sentence. :P


Oh God I'm posting my actual political views in the News & Politics topic all serious-like what the heck is wrong with me

Not really. Mine usually don't get loose until I've done it about more times than I can count. If your's have gotten loose then maybe you should buy some fresh torsos/arms. You may also be taking them off awkwardly, like trying to screw them off or prying them off against the edge of the torso.

Yeah, that's not much help. But honestly, there isn't much you can do about it other than not do it too often.

Maybe you could stick a small hard metal object up the bottom of the torso and try popping the arms off from the inside, but that may damage the insides and probably wouldn't do much to resolve the problem.

Just throwing ideas around. ;)

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.” - Marcus Aurelius

A great article that I strongly recommend you read.

A very resourceful site.

Hope this solves your problem, plus a little extra. ;)

Hmm, well what I was doing was prying them against the torso, which I guess doesn't work. :/ Thanks.

If you arms are loose,(most of mine are) I would just put a tiny piece of scrap paper in the arm hole, then pop the arm back in. It's already super loose, so it's not going to damage the fig anymore than it has been.

I dont know if this is a dead topic but i figured its acceptable since its a help topic

Question 1: Which are better, legos great helm or brickforges?
Question 2: Are Brickforges chrome pieces any good or does the chrome come off really easy?
Question 3: Are BrickarmsBrickforge helmets to tight on the minifigs? because Ive heard that their hard to take off,
Question 4: Does anyone have a good way to remove heads from ninja hoods without damaging the neck?
Question 5: And i forgot the last question but if i remember ill edit it in. Oh! I just remembered, Does anyone know how to get black spray paint off a ninja hood?

It's a pinned help topic none the less. Have no fear, you did nothing wrong. ;)

1: It depends on which one you think looks better, really. The brick forge helmet is made out of ABS plastic just like LEGOs, and looks a tad less cartoonish, not to mention it comes in more colors. Ultimately the choice depends on which you think looks better.

4: Take a fresh minifig torso (one that isn't worn out), stick it onto the head, and pull. I know sometimes this dosn't work because the torso neck piece is too worn, but this technique should do the trick.

5: Spray paint? The best way I know of overcoming that is spray painting the piece over again in the desired color.

Sorry I couldn't help on all of your questions. Hopefully somebody else will come along. Good luck.
God is good.

Hay I'm trying to make a dark red scout helmet from HALO:REACH, and since Brick Forge dose not make dark red spartan helmets I was wondering what color I should use from Brick Forge, if anyone can help that would be great.

Use red or black and decal over them. That way the gaps in the decal are less noticeable (red) or look like they're meant to be there (black)

That's what I was thinking, but Brick Forge is sold out of red helmets, so I guess I'll just half to go with black or wait until red comes back into stock and just make the spartan red instead of dark red, but thanks for your help.
