It’s always nice to find a new customizer out there, broadening the field of available LEGO®-compatible accessories and giving us all most stuff to collect. Custom Crazy is a company out of Malaysia, and they make some pretty interesting items.
Custom Crazy’s catalog breaks down into two types of items: your standard weapons that are what they are, and the modular items that allow you to mix and match.
Custom Crazy’s kunai is quite a nice mold. It’s instantly recognizable, even by someone like me who doesn’t get too into martial arts or ninja-themed stuff. This item also comes in pack of two, which is kind of nice.
Now you can be just like everyone’s favorite Ninja Turtle (Raphael) with your very own sai. This is another nice weapon. It’s quite large, and looks like it would do a solid job of blocking and entangling an opponents weapon.
While I like pretty much everything else in this release, I’m not a fan of this item. This butcher’s knife is simply too over-sized to look good. I know LEGO® items are generally out of scale, sometimes comically so, but this one just looks out of place. On the other hand, it’s well produced, and even have a nice beveled edge.
The cleaver, while still oversized, looks much better in my opinion. We have a few different options when it comes to cleavers, one by LEGO® and another from BrickForge. I would place the Custom Crazy version right in the middle of the pack, preferring the BrickForge version slightly due to scale.
These modular items allow you to mix the weapon part with a variety of different handles, including LEGO®’s standard bar piece (the lightsaber). It really gives you a lot of options for creating more customized characters, or at least the weapons they’re carrying around.
While not as exciting as the actual weapon heads, Custom Crazy’s different staffs and handles are pretty darn cool, and really give you a lot of options for customizing your weapons.
Handle Type A
This first handle features a large hand guard and a nice round butt-cap. It looks really great with the maces and war hammers included with the launch items. Of all the handles, I think it looks the biggest and most solid of all the handles, even if they are the same diameter for obvious reasons.
Handle Type B
I really like this second handle because not only does it look good as a handle, but the bulbed end looks like it would make a great weapon on it’s own. The wrapping texture on the end is also a nice touch.
Handle Type C
Handle C features a stud on the bottom, where you can insert a LEGO® bar, spike, or whatever else that will fit. It also has nice texturing up the staff of the handle.
Handle Type D
Handle D is the most ornate of the four, and looks like something a fancy-lad would carry into battle. This one looks great with practically every weapon head available.
This is where things get really interesting. Each weapon head fits onto one of the four handles, or onto a standard bar. I used a standard bar for the review to make the weapon stand out a little better.
The small axe is, without a doubt, my absolutely favorite item here. The blade profile looks great, the handle attachment has some character, and unlike most axes you see, it’s not ludicrously over-sized. This looks passable as both a hand weapon or a throwing axe.
And to give you a better idea of how it looks posed, I recruited a model from the local LARP group:
Got some dwarves that need axes? Well then you’re in luck, because this looks like the perfect fantasy double-bladed axe. It looks solid on both short and long handles, and definitely looks mean.
The knobbed mace is fantastic in it’s simplicity. It’s just a mean, ugly looking hunk of metal for stoving in heads and denting up armor. As a bonus, this item comes in a pack of three.
The spiked mace is a staple fantasy (and historical) weapon. What we have here is a solid example. It’s well molded and appropriately sized.
Simple War Hammer
This one runs a close second to the small axe for me. It’s simple and deadly, just like it’s real life counterpart. I really like these simple items without a lot of ostentatious extras because they look more historical to my eyes.
War Hammer with Spiked Top
Next up, the upgraded version of the war hammer. While the first version is perfect for your cannon fodder, this item is built for your landed gentry types who can afford to go to war with a little more elegance. This looks good on a short handle, but better still on a long one.
Custom Crazy is offering things I haven’t seen from other customizers. Definitely worth checking out if you’re into medieval or fantasy builds. You can find their eshop here.
