    Raspberry Pi LEGO HAT

    You are right ! The RP2040 is a RaspBerry, but not a PI. Here, the Arduino Nano RP2040, https://store.arduino.cc/products/arduino-nano-rp2040-connect?_gl=1*y305oh*_ga*MzYyMTI3NDg0LjE2MzQ0NjA5MTk.*_ga_NEXN8H46L5*MTYzNTAwODM0Mi4zLjEuMTYzNTAwODQxNi4w
  3. Really cool. The movie was a bit disappointing, but the glider thing was very well designed.

    Modified TIE Fighter MOC

    Holy cow it looks amazing. I can't believe all the detail packed into this thing, it looks like it will explode at the drop of a hat. How sturdy is it?
  5. does someone have the .io n/or .lxf file for this model?

    Raspberry Pi LEGO HAT

    Well the Pi varieties are classified as micro-computers, aren't they? Whereas the ESP32 is still a micro-controller, right? The (now already old) ESP32 wroom "chip/module" is not necessarily what I would call a lame duck (https://www.espressif.com/sites/default/files/documentation/esp32-wroom-32_datasheet_en.pdf) ... at least as far as I am concerned: ESP32-WROOM-32 contains two low-power Xtensa® 32-bit LX6 microprocessors 448 KBytes ROM for booting and core functions 520 KBytes on-chip SRAM 8 KBytes SRAM in RTC SLOW 8 KBytes SRAM in RTC FAST 1 Kbit of EFUSE, 256 bits MAC WiFi: 802.11 b/g/n/d/e/i/k/r (802.11n up to 150 Mbps) Bluetooth v4.2 BR/EDR and BLE specification Wi-Fi mode Station/softAP/SoftAP+station/P2P Security WPA/WPA2/WPA2-Enterprise/WPS Encryption AES/RSA/ECC/SHA IPv4, IPv6, SSL, TCP/UDP/HTTP/FTP/MQTT Interfaces: SD-card, UART, SPI, SDIO, I2C, LED PWM, Motor PWM, I2S , IR, GPIO, capacitive touch sensor, ADC, DAC, Hall sensor, temperature sensor Operating temperature -40 + 85C Operating voltate: 2.2-3.6V Consumption: 80 mA typ Dimensions: 18 mm x 20 mm x 3 mm It sure can run a web server ... but I certainly wouldn't know how to do that. In my super simple applications it uses about 0.1% of its capabilities - so I am somewhat in line with what @oracid said: However, @Cornelius made his Legoino (BLE) code for ESP32's - no idea what other platforms are compatible with that library. Not important: An ESP32 Dev board is tiny and cheap, my favorite way of life All the best, Thorsten

    Storage and Sorting LEGO

    You should be aware that you will never be done sorting/organizing UNLESS you stop buying LEGO. That's a simple fact you will need to learn. You will need a system that can adapt a growing collection. I have a system of wall mounted drawers for the small bits, then bigger drawers for plates sorted by size, and then sterilite containers for the rest of the pieces first sorted by color, then by subtype. This is easier for me. I know exactly where to look for which piece type I am looking for. We all have our own preferences. You'll need to figure out what works best for you and you won't figure that out immediately. It will change a lot and often until you get into the groove.

    LB&SCR E2 Class Tank Engine ("Railway Series" Thomas)

    @Tenderlok Yes! Thank you! @zephyr1934 is right, that's good work. I'm no fan of steam, but this build is both charming and clever. Great fun! And yes, please, get yourself a Flickr account. Even I have one! It's not used, but it's there if I need it.

    Bricklink Designer Program 2021 Discussion Thread

    Considering LEGO owns Bricklink, I'd assume LEGO is producing parts. That's why they also don't have new prints for figures/pieces and are using stickers or existing figures. They likely have the inventory for the pieces and with a limited supply they can allocate the proper factory work to produce the sets and be done with it. Unlike other sets that may require a longer production time since they are higher volume than 5k (or 10k for some sets). Also, why a lot of the sets aren't being released until January and June of next year even though they were sold this past summer.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Empire released 2 new promotional images for No Way Home, giving us a full look at Doc Ock. Gotta say that image of Peter and Ock has to be one of the worst looking promo shots I've ever seen, can't believe Sony/Marvel approved that
  13. I know I know.... In fact I was already pillaging the model -- there's a reason I took the photo from that angle and in the dark! Never! Whenever there are collisions that I can't resolve 'in system', I at least make sure that one of the colliders is mounted on a rubber axle connector (45590) to gracefully move out of the way! In this case, the upper headlights (with the 8 trans-clear bits) are on rubber. Yeah I know this is a controversial technique around here... But in this case I think it's okay because the flex axle is bent only slightly, so no hideous gaps appear between the 1L beams.

    Octrainber 2021 and lots of coke

    Be still, my beating heart. I love this scene: the engine, the wagon, and the minimal but dead-on scenery. Close enough to perfect. Metta, Ivan

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    falcon fan did say in that podcast long ago that the NWH wave could be as big as the endgame wave. I bet at the time he was referring to the spoiler sets but didn't know they'd release separate from the sets we have now. Summer 2022 could be very interesting

    Netherlands?

    You know, I have noticed this situation too, and wondered about it. There are a lot of Lego AFOLs from the Netherlands. What's the story guys?

    Best course of action with missing parts.

    If it's just a pin or axlepin or something of that size or smaller, you will probably be alright to use one from the next bag. There are usually extras of such parts, especially in a set as big as that. Most likely it is just misplaced somewhere or other. In the hundreds of new sets I have put together or assisted with, I have never seen a set shorted. I don't know how they (TLG) do it so well.

    LEGO Star Wars 2022 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    Not gonna happen, they're colour-locked for durability reasons, as the specific colours for the ball-joint and receiver parts they chose are the least likely to break. Can you even imagine the carnage if they released reddish brown ball joints? If that's the case, it's going to look even more like a Mecha-Rancor Fair enough They might surprise us, but after the last few brick-built creatures, I'm not holding my breath for anything spectacular here. It's just a side build in a $100 set after all. I'd argue the best brick-built creatures are the ones that are the main focus of the set (Shelob or the Great Protector, to name two of my favourites), compared to the ones that serve as side builds

    General Part Discussion

    So strange, I ordered many of all colors of that part from B&P 6 months ago and none of them are misaligned. The only misaligned ones I have are from the small hovercraft set.

    Yes Sir! Thanks for clarifying! Best Thorsten
  23. Google “Rancor Armor” if that helps. You /could/ be right, but you /could/ be wrong, too—and that’s my point: we don’t know yet. A couple studs on each shoulder won’t necessarily be enough to fully equip the beast, nor would a build atop them necessarily give the right “riding look”. Maybe there’ll be a lot of bulky gray armor so gray joints blend in. Maybe the one in the show will be gray (wouldn’t be the first time seeing that). Maybe TLG’ll finally recolor the joints. Ultimately, yes, molded would look better. (Ragnarok Hulk comes to mind.) But given the size and specific specs of this beast, I’m willing to wait & see before judging TLG’s decision.
  24. Idea for one end. It is compromise, but it works But I think, I need to make it digital.

    Thank you! I always try to keep my ships on the sea. I should probably break out my bricks again...
