Current Commission Availability
Slots available for a commission
I only accept a maximum of 2-3 commissions on a yearly basis due to the amount of time and work each commission takes.
Please first check here if there’s an available slot for a commission before sending an inquiry.
What is a MessyWorks Commission?
This is a custom designed LEGO mech project that starts as collaboration between me and the Client. Collaboration means the custom design will have inputs from the Client so that I can build a mech that fits their desired design requirements. Each commission project is limited to one (1) Mech Build, using only original LEGO parts, and comes with a Build-specific instruction manual.
Theme and color selection
The Client gives his preferred theme / look + preferred color for the mech. After which I check if the request is buildable or would need some compromise on the end result.
The more reference material you send, the better! Hopefully not too much that it makes it hard to decide on the look, but enough that we can have a good idea on what the finished build will more or less look like.
2. Queue number and ETA on build
An initial down payment of $20 via PayPal when commission formally starts (Build Day 1) is required as security deposit. This guarantees the commission is a GO. It also guarantees that I must fulfill the Client’s build.
Any cancellation from the Client will not constitute a down payment refund.
3. Progress report
I send the Client a progress report halfway through the project at around 2 weeks – 1 month from Build Day 1. This allows the Client to check on the current build status. Inputs and design changes are accepted at this point to a degree. Note that progress reports might vary depending on the season and/or my schedule.
*Holiday seasons is when I’m usually busy with other non-LEGO things
4. Initial Completion
This stage is where I check with the Client if any revisions are needed. Major revisions are no longer allowed at this
5. Finalized Completion
The Client finally gives the OK and the build is prepared for cataloguing / recording.
Instructions / breakdown pictures are also recorded at this point for client reference.
6. Purchasing notes
The client must purchase the commission as a whole package. This includes the finished build (all the parts) with a Build-specific instruction manual. This contains the background information, design notes, assembly instructions from ground up, styling guides, care instructions, and a detailed parts list. Minifig pilot is normally not included.
A down payment of $20 USD is required upon confirmation of commission as security deposit. Upon project completion, I request the full price + shipping fee (shouldered by the Client) less the initial $20 USD security deposit. Payment is done via PayPal deposit, upon which an invoice is sent out to the Client.
Prices can range from 400$ USD and above.
For reference, the frame I use already costs 75$ USD and is included in the whole build.
Feel free to ask questions about any of the above guidelines.
I’m also open to discuss different payment methods, shipping options, etc.
*Kindly include that in the contact form that you’d want to start a commission project.
