is not a one-man show. We're a growing team of Lego enthusiasts looking to help others customize and grow their collections!
AV Figures, created by Andrew Vu, is the product of a passion for fandoms and an enthusiasm for Lego figures. This is a growing team of Lego enthusiasts who work together to provide high quality figures, decals, and custom parts to build your collections and creative options.
The bread and butter of our product selection are decals and DIY kits, enabling you to make essentially every clone imaginable. Detail and quality are of the utmost importance to us, so we strive to offer some, if not the most, detailed figures on the market. What sets us apart from other custom figure makers is that we are community-driven, and aspire to collaborate with community members to deliver products that will benefit everyone.
We're just starting the business and will be frequently adding more and more items to our product base. If there's something you want that you don't see here, please don't hesitate to send us an email and we'll see what we can do about that!
We hope you enjoy our products, and be sure to check back frequently for updates! You can follow our social media to keep up with our latest developments.

AV Figures Timeline
This brand started as nothing more than a hobby. I wanted to create a stop motion with custom clones, and Sharpie just wasn't cutting it. Thus, the journey began to make those clones with waterslide decals.
The standard figures with only front/back designs started getting old. It dawned on me that there are too many details that get missed, so I created 360° decals to better represent our beloved characters.
Decals > Figures
The popularity of 360° decals started rising so I began to sell the decals by themselves to allow people to decal their own figures. This started a movement where people finally felt enabled to make their own figures instead of just buying them pre-made.
After realizing that it became difficult to acquire certain pieces and sculpts took too long to replicate, I learned how to resin cast to collaborate with sculptors and spread copies of their sculpts throughout the community.
Launch of AV Figures
At this point, I found that college classes and the standard path of getting a 9-5 job wasn't for me. I dropped out of college and began my entrepreneurial journey, changing AV Figures from a hobby to a business.
We expanded our operations outside of decals and decaled figures into printed figures and accessories, venturing into mass-produced pre-made items for collectors who didn't have time to decal their figures.
The workload of running the company on my own became too much to bear. I enlisted the help of the AV Team, people who had proven their dedication to the brand and community, along with strong talent with decal application. These guys helped AV Figures grow to new bounds!
Thomas Fitzhugh, our Master Builder, blazed the trail for custom Lego sets in the Star Wars genre. This initiated a new form of collaboration, allowing MOC builders to profit off of their creations while providing a unique product to the community.
Decals and DIY kits quickly became the biggest product sold here. Due to this, we made a radical restructure of our workshop and inventory system to stock over 400 unique designs for decals of nearly every clone in existence.
