Engineerio Q&A Interview

Engineerio Q&A Interview

Engineerio are a brand new vendor to our web site and offer a range of high quality digitally printed Super Heroes and Star Wars custom minifigures.

How did you first get into custom minifigures?

I really enjoyed painting 1/72 army men as a boy, and I had a life long love of Lego. About 10 years ago I decided to start painting camo army Lego figures and Samurai. They didn’t sell well, but it started me on the Lego customization path. I studied graphic design and printing in college, and this led me to designing decals.

What made you decide to print your own custom minifigures?

I had the desire to be employed from home in order to spend more time with my wife and children.

How do you go about choosing which characters to print?

I had a small list to start with of characters I like. That has grown exponentially with new customer suggestions. Now I pick ones that I think will sell well, that have parts available and I like.

What process do you go through when creating a new custom minifigure?

I look around to see if the parts are available. I try not to compromise on a part so if the part isn’t really close to perfect then the figure will have to wait until that time. Then comes design, I try to always come back to a design a couple times before printing because a new idea or solution to a problem will pop into my mind.

What is your favourite minifigure you have released so far?

That is a tough one because there are so many. I collect a few Lego figures too, and here are ones I’ve added to my personal collection since I started Printing:
Boba Fett: I matched his armor to his sand green helmet
Zam Wezell: a huge improvement over the lego version, included is the original lego torso
Kit Fisto: Water version, I printed his head to change the Lego mouth.
Juggernaut: a unique solution to the head
Clone Troopers: what can I say, they look great together.

Thank you to Engineerio for taking time out to do this interview.
