  2. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    If anyone is interested, SolidBrixStudios has his hands on the First Order Star Destroyer and has made a lengthy review which is good for seeing the interior details :-)
  3. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Well, considering the fact that the villain vehicles (which were only in the backgrounds of some scenes for mere seconds) were turned into full sized sets, I wouldn't rule out anything like that. Although personally, I would love that Harvey Dent figure . Also, congrats on 1,000 posts!
  4. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    The newest video game trailer uses the vehicles in set form and gives us a good look at Cole's Quake Mech. It's too hard to tell how it balances on one wheel but I'm guessing it'll have two flaps that fold down from the sides as a kickstand and fold up for play.
  5. I'm not sure how I missed this when it was posted. Very nice application of Mindstorms, the latest picture shows some nice paths. The light underneath gives it a very cool effect! Any plans to make it move in straight lines?
  6. @jam8280 The car in the fridge made my day :D Hmm maybe its a normal behaviour... i never tried mine at temperatures over ~28°C. But allway on flat asphalt. I think others could help here?
  7. Some kind of malfunction is a possibility, as I bought all 5 of my Buggy motors used, with no idea of their prior histories. When I overheat any of them to the point of shutdown, though, full recovery takes a lot longer than 15 sec, even at room temp or in the fridge. (Not a word to my wife!) Three of the 5 motors are installed in the red and yellow cars I showed earlier, and all behave pretty much the same. Brown-outs are not infrequent after several runs on hot rough asphalt at 30+°C air temperatures -- especially uphill. But on an air-conditioned gym floor, the 2 motors in the yellow car will run at full throttle till the PF LiPo dies. Keeping motor thermistors as cool as possible for official top-speed runs might be an argument for push starts, as current draws (and therefore thermistor heating rates) are highest when accelerating from a standing start (effectively, a stall). Though I have yet to try them, I see push starts as perfectly legit when top speed is the only goal.
  8. My VW T1 XXXL Long MOC

    Thank you. I working on a caravan at the moment. And the chrome pieces are the finishing touch. The downside is that the crome pieces are expensive. But it just belongs on the t1.
  9. [WIP] Forest Skidder- 42054 C model (ALMOST DONE)

    I am starting tomorrow or the next day. I have till the end of August off, then I can work a little during the day.
  10. Future Star Wars Sets

    After seeing an early release of a Porg soft toy, I'm wondering if we'll ever see Lego versions of them. Maybe they could reuse the body mold from the Nexo Knights scurriers!
  11. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    We'll also be midway through season 4 of Rebels by then - maybe some of the winter sets will come from this neglected source.
  12. Just finished this awesome MOC and starting AM DB11. the renders are so good that I have to built it!! The Vantage photo's will be on my Bricksafe soon.
  13. Picture frame as minifigure display

    That looks really cool! I can also see this working very nicely for other themes, eg Star Wars or CMF :D
  14. Today
  15. Future DC Super Heroes Rumors & Speculation

    We did get Green Lantern in a set and he was a SDCC exlusive back in 2011 I believe.
  16. The cab is too low, it look like chop top skidder :D And remove those lights from front blade, in real life they would be torn apart on first use.
  17. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I should imagine sometime this week there will be a reveal of the MF.
  18. (MOC) Space Construction Mech

    I really like the frame, nice build.
  19. Do we actually have a list of sets for the winter wave?
  20. Future Star Wars Sets

    What about a The Jedi Temple? I find it incredible how we haven't seen that as an UCS set yet. It is most iconic building of prequel trilogy and possibly the saga.
  21. [MOC] Orange Crawler 4x4

    very cool looking MOC...like the awesome tires!! Video was very good and told the whole story...great job!!
  22. You are right... the battery-light should turn off then. Hmm.. but thats really strange then... maybe your motor is used to much, and the thermistor is kind of damaged? Because as wrote earlier, even with 2:1 geared claas wheels i couldnt trigger the motors protection. And this is really hard work to push ~900g with 2:1 upgeared claas wheel. Did you try another motor? At wich temperatures did you do your runs? 30°C and more? By the way... the protection should recover really fast (~10-15 seconds max)
