  1. Yeah, you can probably store the current waggons, the load of the waggons and whatever. A few numbers should fit into the storage. But you could also use lego dimensions NFC tags. They probably fit directly under the train and they already have studs to attach them.
  2. I think that NFC could be very well used for the trains itself, not only for display purposes. You could register wagons to engines, you could distinguish different engines from each other on a relieable way etc. if every engine had it's own rewritable NFC tag.
  3. Or he could use an adapter cable (lego sells two different lengths: 8886 and 8871).
  4. Reminds me a bit of what happened with lego the hobbit where they announced a DLC for the last movie that never came. Let's hope that they try to fix as many bugs as possible until the final release. It would be sad to see the game abandonned with the current bugs.
  5. It's a complete open world. You can't access everything in the beginning (probably so that you can get used to the game without forgetting where you have to go) and the game tries to move you to continue with the story but you aren't forced to do it. You can run around in the world after completing the game. Some quests are on the open world but there are some old school levels, too. It's a relatively large world but they cheated a bit (there is a mountain that you can't fly over and there is a bay in the middle of the map). Still I'd say that it's larger than the world of lego marvel super heroes. You have to complete the story and the side quests to reach 100%. But the side quests can become a bit repetetive and some of them are that you have to collect something etc.
  6. It's probably sufficient to use the 5V output as the new power supply. The max output values normally only apply for the input/output pins.
  7. The education version is already out: wedo 2.0. It probably runs on less than 9V, the rechargable battery is included into the set. It uses BLE (bluetooth low energy) for communications. Currently there are no train motors avaible in the system.
  8. Personally I prefer american disel trains over european disel trains although I'm from Europe. They are just prettier. I think that the maersk train looks much better than a european train would do. But I think that the old BNSF and the santa fe trains look really great, too. I didn't buy the HE because it just doesn't look as pretty as both of the other trains to me and it doesn't have this character with all the small details of the emerald night or the maersk train.
  9. Maybe they would be successful releasing only one or two "expansion" wagons for 30$ in addition to two or three starter train sets. A complete theme like my own train is probably overkill.
  10. Yeah it's probably about the microcontrollers but you still need motor drivers because microcontrollers don't allow much current. There's probably a rechargable battery included into the set (at least for the education version). BTW: the new connector appears to have 6 pins like mindstorms cables as opposite to power functions cables with 4 pins. Philo already took the controller brick apart:
  11. They already have the website up since before the toy fair: I think that they announced back when wedo 2.0 came out that the new power functions will displace the old power functions. But I think that the new system runs on a lower voltage (tho I'm not entirely sure about that). /edit I just found the source that the wedo 2.0 system will displace the old power functions: " WeDo 2.0 is not compatible with the old WeDo. Although all future PF will be compatible with the new platform introduced with WeDo 2.0."
  12. There are new promo pictures of the agents DLC: It would be really cool to have the mobile command center in the game but I think that we won't get it.
  13. Personally I'm very glad that they took the "original" agents because they were the first lego theme that really catched my interest. The picture is from a dev diary on tumblr which only got released there for some reason.
  14. There is going to be a lego agents DLC on release exclusively for PS4. But it will come to other platforms after a 90 days period.
  15. I have them standing in the shelf. But they get dusty there.
