These mini legs are made for walking.


Mini Action Legs by Brick Fortress

Hobbits can’t run, at least LEGO hobbits and other short character can’t run. Normal short LEGO legs are not moveable so the smaller characters cannot move, or sit. The mini-action legs offered by Brick Fortress allow poseability for the minis in either in your MOCs or stop motion films.

Left:Frodo with Action Legs Right: Frodo with standard Legs

I just bought a few of these and would like to share my thoughts on them. The legs are nicely made and feel similar to LEGO. They feel solid and move easily without fear of breaking like some knock off brick brands. The colors are near to LEGO colors. They are available in five colors now, others will be offered in the future, more on that later. Current color options are black, gray, dark blue, reddish-brown, and tan.

Here we can see side by side comparison using the Evil Dwarf from series 5. The dwarf on the Left has mini-action legs, the dwarf on the right has the standard legs.The legs have some curve to them rather than the straight look of LEGO legs. There is a center piece to the legs that allows the movement. And the legs are slightly taller due to the hips.

rear view: Dwarf w/ reddish brown, Yoda w/tan, Frodo in normal, and Bildo w/ dk blue.

Price: The legs are listed for $1.25 each but currently sold for $1.15 each with price breaks at higher volumes order 20 or more and the price drops to $1.00 each and order 100 or more and they drop $0.95 each. Shipping is cheap. Plus They fill orders fast. I ordered on the 31st the legs were shipped on the 2nd and arrived the 4th.

LEGO Yoda

The tan legs match Yoda and allow the Jedi to Move.

The next color will be.. up to you. Brick Fortress held a survey for most requested colors. The top four are now up for voting. The choices are: Dark Green, Green, Dark Tan and Dark Brown. You’ll notice in the Frodo and Dwarf pics the color don’t match the original that because they figs were made with dark brown legs. Dark brown is not offered yet so I used the reddish-brown legs. I need my Hobbits to match. Frodo and Samwise can’t complete their mission if their outfits are not color coordinated. So vote dark brown Frodo needs action legs so he can simply walk into Mordor.

Voting ends April 30th so be sure to get your votes in by then! Choose your color and vote!

LEGO Frodo
Frodo cannot walk he needs mini-action legs. Don’t let Sauron win vote dark brown legs!

Summary:The legs are well made and look great. They function like the regular size LEGO legs. I can see these being used in stop motion films. You should try a few and give your figs added poseability.

UPDATE:they are still taking votes for the new action leg color. This color vote will end the night of A̶p̶r̶i̶l̶ ̶3̶0̶t̶h̶,̶ ̶2̶0̶1̶3̶ [not decided]

Today’s Advent mini-fig is a Rebel solider. Really neat figure from Star Wars: A New Hope. He’s one of the first characters we see in the entire saga. He has a cool large hat which, like the rebel trooper in Hoth gear, has three visors.

Ninjago returns in 2014


News from LEGO about Ninjago

Is Ninjago really ending?

Actually, we have more Ninjago sets planned for next year and 2014! Stay tuned to our website, catalog, and club magazine for more information in the future!

I heard that the Ninjago cartoon is ending and there won’t be any more episodes. Is that true?

We have plans for Ninjago in 2013. We can’t tell you about them just yet.

Is Chima replacing Ninjago?

Even though we have new Chima sets coming next year, we also have new Ninjago sets too! Chima is a brand new theme, not a replacement for Ninjago. You’ll be able to get more information about Chima and Ninjago after the New Year!
