Here at T3 Towers, we absolutely love Lego – who doesn't? We've spent a lot of time finding the best Lego sets, the best Lego Technic sets, and the best Lego Star Wars sets, among many others.

But sometimes the general sets just don't cut it, such as when you want to create a perfect replica of yourself, or someone you know, in Minifigure format. 

Well, Lego is testing a way to do just that, called the Lego Minifigure Factory (opens in new tab) (via Jay's Bricks Blog (opens in new tab)), currently available in beta for a lucky few people. 

You can see an example that we quickly created below and the various options – heads, headwear, torso, legs, accessories – available for customisation. Each Minifigure costs $11.99 and Lego has limited them to one per household in the US.

"We're still putting the final touches on this new area, so some parts and features may not be available," says Lego. 

"There is a limit of one minifigure per household at this time. You may also find that the page is unavailable from time to time." 

Of course, you can't just make any old Minifigure and Lego will be moderating the designs to avoid anything inappropriate or offensive. 

Lego already offers a Build a Minifigure (opens in new tab) service in some countries but this new tool goes above and beyond, especially when it comes to customising torsos. 

We can't wait for Lego to open this up to everyone – check back at T3 for updates as we get them. In the meantime, check our some great deals on the best Lego sets
