So for the past 8 months I've been working on this comic, and I'd love
to share it with you guys.

16 combatants from 16 different themes find invitations to a mysterious deathmatch
tournament with a very attractive first prize... Who will win?

  If pad printing, this would be exciting from my perspective, because one could
use this service to produce custom medieval etc. characters based on own digital
designs. Can one choose the base color of the torso freely? Does the custom print
support metallic colors?

The price in the photo is 30 Kr, so if matched in other countries, £3.66 GBP
/ 4.00 Eur / $4.40 USD. While not prohibitive, a small army will be costly.

I'm personally afraid of a flood of custom printed on original parts torsos
to the catalog. Some may claim they are official as they are from official LEGO
brand store

You will have to be vigilant, my friend.

Well, if you can derive the actual RGB or Hex value of DBG, that would be a big
help. I've found some things online, but no two agree.

RGB and/or hexadecimal values are for screen renditions of colors. It is a color
system used for *emitted* light. Since what you want is the color for an actual
physical object that will *reflect* light instead of emit it, you will need a
different color system.

Cheers,

I'll scan the color tomorrow and give you some LAB values. If you take that
to a professional paint store, they should be able to manually enter it in the
mixing machine and create something reasonably close.

Oops, I need to back up for a minute. I'm looking for a matching hobby paint

What's wrong with a full wall and ceiling in DBG?

I highly doubt that it will be pad printing. They need to turn these around in
minutes in store. And the cost of producing the multiple cliches necessary for
multicolour prints to then produce a single torso would mean astronomical costs
per print.

Two cents on this from my side:

I think that any such individual torso would classify as custom items as any
other custom printed torso made by third party customizers, because they are
individually made and do not show up in any LEGO official set or exhibition giveaway.

Does anyone know if these custom prints are made with a UV or pad printing machine?

You can also get your name (or any other word within reason) engraved onto a
LEGO brick in a number of LDCs - did that lead to a flood of such requests for
listing those parts here? It may be that in the future they start showing up
in bulk lots once the owner has grown up and sold off their collection and people
cannot identify them.

If someone submits new torsos and they haven't shown up in official sets
(where there are plenty of images) or BAM (more difficult), they can probably
be safely rejected. I can see it might lead to a slight delay for things like
the "Champs" torso found only in BAM while proof is sought.

I notice that the most annoying thing about making a catalog is having to be
a medieval weapon expert, a car tuning expert (what on earth is a changeover

That’s why librarians (think they) know everything


  Well I can stretch diamonds to minerals
or something like that but I was referring to this crazy thing that in English
it includes jewels as well as rock formations. I don't think that that category
would make any sense in any language but English

Actually, it’s more a “BrickLink English” particularity.
“Rock” in the sense of gemstone is slang or at least figurative. Using “rock”
to name the category for big rocks and crystals and gemstones is some sort of
zeugma, or a pun


  […]
But blast, still have alot left in the "other" type.. Oh well. This is a good
start, I think I will start improving after I have started to make some actual
revenue..

Good idea

  But I think “Treasure” and what you translated as “Prize” (riches?) should do
very well.
After all, people will see all the “types” when they will try to filter, so it’s
just about finding the most appropriate, not about devising a term out of the
blue for a free/google-like search.



Yeah, the category includes all coins, ingots, trophies, diamond and such. That
seems to work pretty well.
