At last! Our move to a larger space has finally been completed and we’re enjoying having more room to pack our deliveries and more room for the little guys to move around. And, with that slight distraction out of the way, we’ve been spending some time looking at how we can further improve our service to you.

The process we use to make the heads involves careful hand finishing, and that can’t be rushed because keeping to this high standard is as important to us as it is to you, but the team has found ways to streamline other parts of the process. This means that we’ve cut the time from acceptance of your order to delivery down to between two and four weeks. We feel great about this, and we know you’ll appreciate it too.

However, we do still receive quite a few orders with images that simply won’t work with the conversion software, and when this happens it does inevitably slow down the process. Often, it’s because no flash has been used and there are shadows on the image. This part is up to you, so to make things easier, we’ve put an explanatory video on the website that shows exactly how to take photos that we can convert to 3D images – and there are print guidelines too.

Remember – it’s important that images should be clear, well lit and without shadows. You will need to use a flash. Also, a selfie is really not going to hack it – plan the shot, the background and the lighting beforehand and use a self-timer if there’s no-one around to take the photo for you.

We want to deliver your personalised mini-fig head to you asap, so please give yourselves a ‘head’ start. (Sorry – couldn’t resist that one!)

It’s finally here. This week we’ll know what destiny awaits for our two favourite superheroes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And we are so excited!

Whether or not we love what Zack Snyder, the film’s director, puts on the big screen, we can each have our own personal version of the biggest superhero challenge for decades thanks to the latest Funky3DFaces offer!

As well as entering a parallel universe and pitting our two favourite superhero crime fighters just for the fun of it, you could also take part in our online superhero competition.

Just take up our special limited edition offer of two custom built 3D mini heads complete with free Batman and Superman figures and free shipping, and you can join battle in our social media competition! Just submit an epic fight scene photo, video or stop-motion animation featuring your figures and the best will win some truly epic LEGO prizes!

We want to see thrills, spills, shocks and surprises as the mighty heroes go head to head in their fight for justice. Make us gasp at your ingenuity and imagination!

We have only 250 sets available, so submit your order asap to make sure you don’t miss out! Let battle commence!

Love is in the air! We’re loving that all over the US there are wedding cakes topped by gorgeous grooms and beautiful brides mini-fig style, with our personalised heads making those already awesome days even more special.

As Valentine’s Day came round and the wedding season started to kick off, we’d already created and despatched around 40 sets of wedding cake il_570xN.855305377_eq13toppers to customers across the US. As big fans of ‘Say Yes To The Dress’, we’re thrilled to be part of your wedding celebrations and we want photos! So please do post your wedding day photos of you and your mini-me cake toppers on our Facebook page.

If you’re planning your wedding now, we have a special offer for you. We’ll supply two personalised mini heads and appropriately dressed LEGO mini-figure bodies for the bride and groom (or any other combination) plus a LEGO wedding arch, lanterns and flowers – see the website for full details.

We’d also love to hear any romantic stories involving mini-figures. Did mini-figures bring you together? Did you receive a wedding proposal via a mini-figure? We’d love to hear all about it!

We have to admit that going to our first Comic Con last year was mind blowing, so it’s no wonder we’re already getting excited about being part of Geeks Lincoln Comic Con in July.

Tickets for the event are selling fast and over a thousand people have already signed up to enjoy the retro gaming, cosplay, stage shows and special guests – all under wraps so far. I’ll be getting out my special comic com outfit again and we’ll be planning a great display of our mini-figs and taking orders on the spot. It’s a tremendous, fun event and I’m looking forward to being part of it.

Meanwhile, we’re celebrating the arrival of an intern who’s helping us to expand the options available for our customers at Funky3DFaces. John, a graduate from the University of Lincoln, joined the team a week ago and is already making a difference. One of the things he’s currently working on is broadening the choices customers can make for their personalised head, for example, introducing a wider range of hairstyles. Watch out for new options as they’re added to the website – and remember to book your tickets for Geeks Lincoln Comic Con – we’ll see you there
