  1. Hi, does anybody know whether the large curved pieces (quarter cylinder?) with hinge in 30166 (creator space shuttle) is new? What's the designer id for it? Thanks.
  2. Thanks. Yeah, that's the exact problem. The worm gear is ever so slightly shorter than 2L so it slides around. I think I will try to change the pins above and below to make it tighter.
  3. I just built this set and it's fantastic. However, I have one issue. The back section (with the digger) wobbles around for some reason. It has a worm gear for the rotation. However, since the space is slightly bigger than the worm gear, the gear can move without being turned, which means the back section has a lot of play. Am I doing something wrong or is there a way to fix this? Thanks.
  4. Thanks for the answer. The seller sent me a pretty good apology and said this is his first sale and he is quitting bricklink. I guess I should have known the deal was too good to be true. Thanks anyway. Good to know my options in such situation.
  5. Got my first bad experience on bricklink. The seller cancelled my order because he got a higher offer. Is there anything a seller can do in that situation? Looks like a seller can cancel an order at any time.
  6. Thanks for the reply. Yes, the picture was from a drawing. I am just wondering whether Lego has that particular part since it looks really useful.
  7. I am wondering whether this is a lego part or a custom part. Can't seem to be able to find it in LDD. There is also a 1x2 version. Thanks.
  8. Any opinion on 42060 (Technic Roadwork Crew) and 42061 (Technic Telehandler)? 42061 is $10 more expensive than 42060 despite having fewer pieces. However, I do like the function of 42061 better. The B model for 42060 (snowplow) is quite interesting though.
  9. Are those price error or something? I have never seen Walmart doing that kind of discount before. Last time they had a 50% off sale and my town went crazy. :) I wouldn't bother. You can get them from Lego with the double VIP event. That's 10% right there plus a free gift. 20% is the minimum unless it's a retired set.
  10. I got 42055 from Costco for 40% off Lego official price. Not the best percentage wise, but it was well priced at regular price (4000 pieces with some power function for $329.99CAD), so I felt I got the most bang for my buck in this case. Of course, nothing beats 10697. 1500 pieces for $40 CAD. It's not on sale, but a ridiculous value with some fun built as well. Just shows you how much Lego makes off us normally.
  11. Is Lego Crazy Action Contraptions from Klutz a good set to play with my kid (3)? Is it worth it to get two sets? Right now, my local store have a special buy one get one free sale. I was thinking about the simple machine set, but two of this set seem to have similar pieces, but much cheaper.
  12. Any thoughts on 60130 Prison Island? I kind of like it being different from a normal police station (as well as the balloon), but it seems to be smaller than the other station sets with a single 16x16 plate.
  13. this set must have mostly small parts. 60052 cargo train has a 100 more pieces, yet it's twice the size. I already got 60052, so I think I have all the parts to motorize it. The price is a little high in CAD, but with the double VIP and free gift, may not be too bad. Really torn.
  14. I think the Vacation Getaways set is probably one of the best 3 in 1 ever being three completely different models . I'd even say it's one of the best camper and best yacht ever. The tree house was surprisingly good and light house was quite different with modular design. The helicopter was also good with linked rotors. So I'd say the summer 2016 creator line up has been extremely good. I don't think somebody needs to be a ghostbuster fan to enjoy the firehouse headquarter, arguable one of the best fire buildings ever, although super expensive (PPP is good though). The two cars were quite nice too.
