- MINIFIGURES -

Minifigures are priced separately due to their higher cost and complexity. Price starts at $7 per minifigure.

- ORDER QUANTITY -

We have a minimum order of 10 sets. The pricing is structured so you can choose any quantity you like with the unit cost progressively getting lower. There is no specific maximum order quantity but many variables can affect our ability to handle orders larger than 1000 sets. We work hard to adapt the design of the model to help meet your desired order quantity.

- REORDER -

If there are no changes to the model design, and we can still source all of the pieces, the Design Price is waived. You will only pay the Production Price.

- RUSH ORDER -

Sometimes, but not always, we can expedite the design and production of your order. If we are able to make your project happen with a faster turnaround time, there will be an additional rush fee of 20% to cover our additional costs. Expedited shipping may also be added for an extra cost.

THE PROCESS

The timeframe from Order to Shipping is typically around 4 months.

Order. Via email, we will work out the details regarding your project including estimated piece count, size, pricing, and order quantity. Once you place the order, then we move on to designing the model.

Design. Using our vast inventory of LEGO® pieces and limited use of software, we develop a functioning concept model based on your requirements and wants. We can also incorporate stickers in the design. We will keep in contact via email, sharing pictures of the model, so that you can give us feedback.

Photography. Once the pieces and stickers come in, the final production model can be made and photos taken. If necessary, we make final adjustments and fixes to the model at this point.

Instructions. We photograph each step of the build and use Adobe software to produce the final layout. The booklets are professionally printed. The inventory is checked 3 times for accuracy.

Pieces. The pieces are bagged up in clear reclosable polybags.

Boxes. Custom-branded top-opening boxes are printed, cut and folded. 

Final Assembly. All the sets go through final assembly as we box up the bagged pieces, instruction booklet and any stickers.

Shipping. The sets are packaged up into shipping boxes and away they go to you!

 - INSTRUCTIONS - 

We spend much time crafting the instructions to make the building process as fun and logical as possible. It is our goal that the builder enjoy not just the end result, but the whole process in making it.

Our instructions are made using hundreds of high-quality photographs! We photograph each step in a special no-shadow photo studio and then process it on the computer for optimum clarity. Each step includes a box listing the parts needed and the quantity. Additional text, close-ups or digitally added lines to separate the pieces may be added as needed.

We use a print shop to print the instructions into a high-quality booklet with either a staple or spiral-ring binding. Typically we will make the instructions and send straight to the printer. If you have any special requests and/or would like your logo on the cover of the instruction booklet, please let us know. We will do our best to work with your request and will send you a proof for approval before it is sent to the printer.

 

- STICKER SHEET -

We will design a sticker sheet and send to a specialist printer, where they will print the design on usually vinyl or YUPO® synthetic material. The benefit of laser-cut is that we can make all sorts of shapes! This makes your model come alive with more details and effective branding! Sticker sheets are included in the price of your set.

 

- PACKAGING -

We will design the box and email you a proof for approval. If you have any specific requests for the box design, please let us know. In addition to your logo, we would love to use any photos, text and contact details that you would like to see on the box. Before the box design goes to print, we will always seek your feedback and approval.

In line with the expectations of the LEGO® Company, the product must look like an ICHIBAN Toys product. So a noticeable amount of our branding is necessary on the box. Furthermore, product details, disclaimers and other necessary text are needed.

We typically package the sets in “Roll End Front Tuck” boxes, similar to LEGO® Architecture and LEGO® Ideas packaging. We use printing services that specializes in small-run corrugated box printing for the benefit of speed and cost, and typically go for the best quality they offer.

 

PRINT QUALITY (for sets made in the US). Please note there is a tolerance of up to 0.125" so the print may not align perfectly with the cut. Although there are a few options, we use the following:

HP PageWide C500 Press. This offers the highest resolution print we've found in the US. The varnish gives a nice satin sheen.

 

PRINT QUALITY (for sets made in Japan). Please note there is a tolerance of up to 3mm so the print may not align perfectly with the cut. Although there are a few options, we use the following:

High gloss finish. The print itself is very high resolution for beautiful photos and text. These boxes support smaller details that our US printer cannot achieve. An ultra-thin plastic sheet is applied on the outside of the box to give a very durable and high-gloss finish.

 

- SHIPPING -

Shipping costs are included in the price. We produce the sets from our locations in Oregon, USA, and Kyoto, Japan, so your project may ship from either location.

Around 2-4 weeks before we expect to ship your order, we will email you to verify the shipping address and contact phone number. Once your order is ready for shipment, we'll email you a master tracking number.

 

USA. Typical transit time within the US is 2-5 business days via FedEx Ground. If your order ships from Japan, transit time is 5-10 business days.*

INTERNATIONAL. Typical transit time is 5-10 business days.*

*The effects of COVID-19 on air cargo may cause delays in transit time. For time-sensitive orders, we may be able to use faster services at an additional cost.

 

All customs duty, import fees, and taxes will be your responsibility to pay. You may need to pay these charges upon receipt or even before the shipment is released from customs. We are not able to estimate the import fees as the charges vary country to country and you may qualify for a different tax result depending on the end-use of your sets.
