Hi! My name is Ethan (or BrikSmith), and I am 14 years old. I’ve loved LEGOs since I was 4, and Star Wars since I was 7. I became interested in LEGO Star Wars at about age 8. Since then, I have worked to build the biggest and best LEGO Star Wars collection ever! 6 years, 29 sets, and over 150 minifigures later I’m still not there.
During the summer of 2012, I began to research customs minifigures. I had grown to love The Clone Wars, and in particular the Clones themselves. I experimented with several different methods to create custom Clone Troopers, including paint, Sharpie, and paper decals. I wanted to do Waterslide decals, but they were too expensive. I developed my own style, which I still use today. As of when I’m writing this (March 7, 2013) I have 20 customs in my collection. I am continuing to learn and try more, including this blog. See ya around!
