making custom lego pieces

Postby mercury19 » Mon Jan 07, 2013 9:13 pm

For quite a while now, I've been thinking of making my own lego pieces. I found a simple tutorial on the net, but haven't gotten around to it yet. My two big dilemmas are that I'm broke, and legality. Is it legal to copy TLC pieces but not sell them? Or is it the selling part that's illegal?

Mostly I wanted to do it to make certain parts in other colors, and maybe copy some cut and glued pieces.


Also, if I do this, I probably won't be selling it, because it will be small operations, not official big equipment.


I'll put up the tutorial I found when I'm off my iPhone.

Eh, I'm a purist about Lego. If it ain't a TLC peice or if its broken, I ain't using it.

It's funny, because when I first saw the replies, they all had banned avatars, so I thought it was the same person. Then I looked again, and they all had an "avatar" avatar. I was like :wtc:
Then I read the names.

Then let's fix something up so that when you get arbitrarily banned for no good reason (which is the best reason really) your damn avatar doesn't get taken away. I'm on a new laptop and haven't assed myself to find a new one yet since my old one's gone, so either do it for me or stop bitching.

I'm not even going to try to describe how dumb that sentence is.
