Lego Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn Custom Minifigures

Baldur’s Gate 2 (Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal) is one of those legendary video games. Developed originally by BioWare and published by Black Isle Studios back in 2000. Recently there has been a resurgence of popularity with the release of the Enhanced Edition and various Kickstarter projects. Baldur’s Gate is one of the most successful Dungeons & Dragons PC games ever. Set in the Forgotten Realms campaign, a high fantasy world made famous by the author R. A. Salvatore. BG2 is an RPG full of tiny details, hidden secrets, and memorable characters.

Justin Stebbins, of Saber-Scorpion, has created a whole collection of custom minifigures. Showcasing most of the heroes and villains in Baldur’s Gate 2. Pictured above are minifigs for Jan Jansen, Keldorn Firecam, Aerie, Jaheira, Imoen, the Bhaalspawn, Minsc, Viconia De’Vir, Edwin Odessieron, Yoshimo, and Korgan Bloodaxe.

Most of these custom minifigures are accomplished with mini decals, stickers, and paint. This custom minifigure for Minsc and Boo ( a miniature giant space hamster) is a perfect example of what can be accomplished with such techniques.

Even the extremely popular drow (dark elf) Drizzt Do’Urden gets a custom minifig. With some amazing scimitars (from BrickWarriors, a custom Lego accessory store).

With the release of Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition, came four new characters. Custom minifigures for Baeloth the Entertainer, Neera the Wild Mage, Dorn Il-Khan, and Rasaad yn Bashir the monk. Hopefully some day we will see these characters make it into Baldur’s Gate 2.

You can’t just make 15 minifigs without creating villains for them to play with. A custom Lego Sarevok, Amelyssan the Blackhearted, Jon Irenicus, and Bodhi are ready to terrorize the town of Athkatla and the surrounding lands of Amn.

Justin Stebbins has worked hard on these figures, some of them going through many different revisions. See if you can spot the changes between Jon Irenicus, Bodhi, and Amelyssan the Blackhearted.

Dungeons & Dragons based custom minifigures are becoming more and more common. Lego has been releasing new weapons, accessories, and hair pieces in the recent Lord of the Rings and Hobbit theme that transfer perfectly to other fantasy based themes. Hopefully we will be seeing many more of these type of projects.

Make sure to check out all the custom minifigures for Baldur’s Gate II over at Saber-Scorpion. Including previous versions of some of the characters.

Star Wars Jedi Defender-class Cruiser (75025) Announced

The newest Lego Star Wars set has been announced, and it is the Jedi Defender-class Cruiser (75025) from Bioware’s Star Wars the Old Republic. Every time I see a new set released from Lego based on The Old Republic it makes me smile. This is a set based on a video game, from the extended universe, ultimately based on the original films.

The Jedi Defender-class Cruiser comes with 4 minifigs, 3 of which are all new. 2 of the 4 happen to be Jedi’s, so thats great, and of course the obligatory Sith to fight with. The new spaceship comes with 937 pieces, and is rumored to be priced around $100. If so, that would make this a pretty good deal for a Star Wars set. The set should be out soonish, so if you cannot wait, just log in to The Old Republic and admire the Cruiser in all its digital glory.

Thanks to GRogall of Eurobricks for breaking the news on this new set, for more photos go here:
