So since we don't have any (or they are all dead) I figured it would be good to start a thread about all of those custom LEGO stores and stuff: Brickarms, BrickWarriors, BrickForge, and of course Scorp's shop. Just talk about them and recent orders, etc.

I'm hoping to make an order from Brickforge.com soon, (as soon as I wash my dad's car and get some serious bucks) and am wondering who here has got the Space Marines/Halo Spartans from them. How are they.

I recently ordered some stuff from Brickforge, including a White and Black spartan set. (Sold individually piece-wise)

The helmets are a little tight, but otherwise really cool and detailed. All the weapons and armour are cool as well. tongue.gif

Also, I'm currently waiting on a massive Brickarms order.

The helmets are a bit tight, but they're manageable if you take them off when in use with the armour. If you're after some silver gladiuses, it might be better if you hold your order, BrickForge is resticking on them soon. I suggest you DO NOT buy the sand green Spartan set; the colour's a little off. You simply MUST get the elven swords, excellent weapons, and they look really awesome.

So does anyone have any news about Little Armory? I guess they're still not really open except for one set or something. The other things are sold out... if I remember correctly.

I got an order of mostly the Roman stuff awhile back. The legionaire helmet is great. Not a fan of the pila though. I've got a question though. I can't tell what color they are trying to match with their silver. I haven't found silver or grey that it matches extremely welll, but its still fine. Does anyone know?
As for the sand green issue, I believe they have recently modified it so it matches better. Not positive on that though.

I think it's pretty much supposed to match with the new kind of silver from the Castle sets, and light gray Check out the avvie that I have currently. It matches pretty well. The silver helmet and the light gray and silver armor. wink.gif

Edit: Question: To anyone who has gotten the Hoplite Helmet and a Officer Plume, does the plume fit well on it or are they loose?

And also, if you've gotten the Gladiator Mask and the Gladiator Helmet, how do they look? Dorky? Cool?

The plume fits pretty tight into the hoplite helmet, unless you twist it. Its a great item, one of my favorites.

Yeah, I wanna make another order soon, once the gladius comes back into stock. I need to update my Romans, plus get some more longbows. Those are awesome.
What do you guys think about Little Armory making a comeback? I think they're gonna have a hard time competing with BF and BA. Plus its taking them forever to get stuff back in stock.

I don't know. They have some cool things, but everyone's really in the BrickForge rage right now. Now that they've got a bunch more products. I hope Little Armory will get a good start. I sure want to buy their products. wink.gif

I'm still waiting on Little Armory to get more stuff in, like scabbards, so I can finish my Ranger's Apprentice minifigs, which will then get posted here. And when they get their stuff in, I'll also order from here and FindMyBrick.

only bad side is that you need a credit card in most cases and pay just in USD. Which makes it impossible for me to buy anything sad.gif

Anyone notice that Little Arms guns look exactly the same as the old space Little Armory guns? I think there might be a conspiracy. Anyway, I'm ordering tons of stuff from Brickforge and Brickarms for some sig-figs I'm making.

Is that the seven dollar one? The one with the combat knife prototype? Man, I want to get that, but I'm planning to make another order from BF. Gosh, the new Brickarms look awesome. happy.gif

There is some kind of conspiracy thing between Little Armory and Little Arms, but I'm pretty sure he doesn't want anyone to divulge such details.
