  1. [MOC] Ă˜sterlars Church

    What, no grave site for Galidor?!?All kidding aside, this is a wonderful creation - very true to the original church, and all that cylindrical building - beautiful! (deepens voice) "Impressive. Most impressive."
  2. colours

    Another possibility is that they are indeed slightly different shades of dark stone grey. If you plug those 7-digit codes into Brickset.com, you get two different entries for the same type of part, one spanning 2005-6 and the next 2004-2018, with no sets in common between the two. Though it is uncommon it does happen in my local Lego store, usually in the Pick-A-Brick wall contents - two boxes of the same color piece but varying slightly in shade or color density, like Johnny 1360 noticed above. I have also seen it in pieces that are from either different countries of origin or from different years (but still being the same type of color - i.e. that part only exists post-2004 and therefore must be dark stone grey rather than dark grey). I hope this helps you somewhat and does not lead to more confusion!
  3. I agree with what you are saying Zephyr, but man it hurts to have been one of the original KS supporters only to have never gotten anything from them, other than one email over a year ago looking for more orders - which I declined to do, since I had not seen anything since they took my money during the KS in May 2014. Personally, I think it stinks that they were more than happy to sell track on their website, but not fulfill their original KS orders! PS - Coaster, I hope your venture succeeds - I still have need of larger-radius track!
  4. Lego Re-releases - What would you like to see?

    Unfortunately, the likelihood of cypress trees returning is slim to nonexistent. AFAIK the old mold was destroyed, so a new one would need to be created which is very expensive. I was lucky enough to get a couple bags from the last run of the old mold, and the trees tend to be slightly bent or twisted. To me, they look more like real trees that way, but I doubt they would be to everyone's taste. I wouldn't mind seeing more of the deciduous and coniferous trees available though - it has to be a few years since I last saw a "circle" tree in a set!
  5. [MOC] Scarif by ChtiLUG

    This project is mind-bending - simply awesome!! I love the all the detail work put into this - scenery, buildings, spaceships and everything! I wish your expo was in the United States so I could come see this behemoth, but France is way out of my travel reach. Good luck and I can't wait for more pictures!
  6. The Metroliner rebuild

    Nicely done BrickWolf! I am lucky enough to own the re-release of the Metroliner & Club Car, and you did quite well getting the feel of the engine - only thing I see missing is the pantograph. I built another standard car that only lacks the light grey trainbase - instead I used what I had available, dark grey. It looks good but is noticeably different to discerning onlookers. Eventually I may acquire the light grey to swap it in! Enjoy your new Metroliner!
  7. [MOC] Friends at the Cinema

    Very well executed! I love the Tehcnic figures, the popcorn bucket, and of course the movie playing on-screen! I've been toying with building a giant Palace Cinema - now thanks to your inspiration, I might even go for a brick-built screen!
  8. Body Battlers: A "New LEGO Theme" of MOCs

    I've been reading this set/theme thread since it first got put in the sidebar as a new item - really cool stuff! Very 1950's/Fantastic Voyage feel to it, and I love all the little call-outs to the era, from the Chevrolac to the diner's payphone. Please make another wave of these - or pitch it/them to Lego Ideas! This theme could even be a fun way to teach kids about germs and the body's defenses against them - who knows? Anyway, great ideas and I would buy the whole theme if it came out in-store!
  9. [MOC] Classic Spaceheadz

    Wow, these are great! How hard would it be to make instructions for them? I'd love to make my own. Looking forward to seeing more pics once the other airtanks come in!
  10. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Yesterday I managed to grab a returned 75054 AT-AT at my local LEGO Store. I'm glad to have found it since I missed getting the set when it was available. I'm hoping to see the Assault on Hoth "UCS" set on sale this coming May the Fourth, since I now have something to assault it with!
  11. Train Automation - Track Switch Motors

    I like the ideas/solutions 4DBrix has been generating/presenting, especially the switch motors, nControl software and the lights. I would definitely be interested in the extended arm version of the switch motor, since I know of people who do build train engines and cars longer than 38 studs (6-wide) or 30 studs (8-wide). I know it's holiday time and all, but any further development on that front, by chance?
  12. Custom 9V tracks

    Hey Coaster, I was wondering if you were planning to attend BrickFair Virginia or BrickFair New Jersey this year? I would love to see these wonderful creations in person! If not, I can just keep trying to throw money through my screen until it is Kickstarter time. But please keep us informed, and thanks for all yourr hard work on this exciting 9v train stuff!
  13. Custom 9V tracks

    Though I've been silent on this project up until now, I'm loving all you have done here Coaster! Though my LUG isn't in the same league as PennLUG, I can definitely see a few places these could be incorporated into our train layout. I think you've hit a wonderful solution with the switch stand being movable to either side of the switch, and cannot wait until these become reality so I can buy a couple (or more). Also looking forward to seeing what you have in mind for the single-axle power pickup wheelset!
  14. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    My wife also got me the Resistance X-wing for our anniversary. Now all I have to do is build more of Tuanul than a vaporator ... Such an understanding lady, my wife!
  15. Roller banner for local LUG

    We have our group name & logo, website, email and facebook info on ours. It's double-sided, so it can be hung in mid-air with both sides showing, or hung from a table front if our space is situated against a wall. It did not cost us that much more to get it printed on both sides in multi-color, if that helps.
