  1. I know your opinion on building vs. keeping your MOCs, but for this one, make an exception. Not for the world, but for yourself. The package of details, correct colors, authenticity and proportions (!) is so complete, that it really looks like the real thing. So strip the electronics once you're done, and put it somewhere in your room. Keeping only pictures and videos just doesn't do it justice... . Edit: ok, I understand about the tan parts. TLG, are your reading along? In (from 2:19), it almost looks like a full scale LR (except for the goliath flowers, hehe).
  2. Dude, mind the scale. Compare the seats of the two trucks and think again .
  3. What exactly did you modify on the Lipo? Shorted the fuse to allow for more current, like the mod to the normal 6AA Battery Box?
  4. The go kart seems to have two of the new 3x11 flat panels in DBG, as seen on another non-technic set also to be released in 2016.
  5. I like the upgraded 6-blade propellers . Second Busterhaus about the cockpit. You could just remove the white soft axle and it will look more round immediately (from most of the viewangles, that is).
  6. That guy is almost as cool as Üfchen .
  7. First, I thought it'd be needless static info myself. It already came in handy at least one other time though (another review, don't remember), so indeed it's worth the effort . The review itself is good too, though. Thorough reviews are always useful even in many years, when someone coming out of his dark ages wants to know whether it's worth to buy the reviewed set 2nd hand.
  8. This kick isn't needless. I hardly buy sets anymore, only the loose parts I need. This, because I don't want to have another pile of hundreds of pins, gears, axles... I certainly don't want to spend money on yet another six-AA battery box, cilinder blocks, etc. The 42039 was only interesting to me for the 6-hole wheels, the green panels, the black 3x11 panels and the flexaxles. Not much to justify the ~90 Euros and another addition to my sorting system reaching its limits again. But on the other hand I learned that it's better to still have most of my parts in complete sets: to make it easier to sell part of my stock later, if needed. Past week, I saw an auction of a shop handling returns from other online shops. They sold an "incomplete" 42039 this time. Price: €24,95. Now look closely: The feeling was already good, there were two more closeups of the bags. Of course, the tires are missing. The stickers, box and manual as well. BUT, comparing the bags with the bags in this review allowed me to conclude: there are no more than TWO little bags missing, one of which only contains black pins and bushes; the other one a few other pins and common engine parts like pistons. I had everything in my spare stock. The tires as well. With this review, I could compare the original contents of the box with the pictures in the auction. Jims highly detailed pictures of every single bag in this set then made it possible to judge this as a bargain beyond compare. So Jim and every other reviewer that might read this: please continue to document the box contents, it's sometimes very helpful!
  9. Since you've already made it, it's probably not a problem for you to show it here too.
  10. You, my friend, really deserve this special price:
  11. Bilka.dk, a Danish retailer incl. online shop, could make the highest Lego profit in history if they would just ship to abroad... €138 / $152 /£97 for the Arocs. Not kiddin' I'd say: happy building for those living in Denmark!
  12. Yes . A single big pneumatic 2M wide cylinder (old/new) is able to give almost 3 KG of pressure. Combined with a small amount of leverage, the weight of the remaining parts after that section of the crane is a joke. Even the added momentum when fully extended is not interesting, since 42043 comes with a bucket which can't be loaded with much weight. When people mod the arm with a hook and want to lift much weight though, it will take time to have the compressor collect enough air to build up the needed pressure. A second pump is advantageous then.
  13. It does look like an entry for TC7. Before it transformed into this "buggy-battle-mode", it was a 42024.
  14. I love the huge air intake! Which doubles as an emergency slide for the driver.
  15. With this colour combination normally beeing used by sub-8-year-old's, and a website that doesn't even deserve to be categorized in the baddest web 1.0 examples, I honestly think that this guy is a kid aged no older than 13. It is so bad to have the courage of placing this picture on the internet it should have an 18+ confirmation upon entering the according site. Moreover, asking that much money for it is just plain strange, even too strange to be a troll .
