    Logun's Run, Westworld, Omega Man, original Lost in Space TV show, original Planet of the Apes movies, and of course, Babylon 5 - all classics for their time. Lately though, I've been watching live cams on YouTube - Yellowstone Park Old Faithful cam, Brooks Falls - Katmai National Park (the salmon are running and the bears are hungry), Kilueua volcano (Rusty lives!), etc.

    I think the orange overwhelms the subject, a little less intensity or saturation would have been better, and better match the luminosity of the blue side. Otherwise, the concept really works

    General Part Discussion

    Is the falling log just something for the box art, or is it a function? Considering the number of pneumatic parts plus PF, this could be a good starter set. And,who is going to be the first to motorize the chainsaw

    LEGO Technic Dinosaur at The LEGO House

    My thumbs hurt just looking at it - imagine having to insert all of those pins, over and over again...
  5. Notice that the battery box is not Technic compatible, so I imagine that there will be a Technic specific version of PF2 / PU.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I wonder how fragile the orange swirly cam-thingy is? Could be another disaster in the works like the 1L worm gear was. SInce the model isn't motorized, might be OK, but I would be cautious using it in a motorized gearbox.

    I think the Sopwith may have a few Technic parts, and it has *functions* , including a (imagine celestial chorus singing) functional joystick

    My kid and I are currently into building WWII fighter/bomber plane model kits - trying to get authentic detailing, nose art, and may venture into dioramas. However, I am thinking about breaking out our Sopwith Camel set for building as it somewhat fits in.

    Compared to brickless_kiwi or bublehead, I'm just a piker with only 4 sets left unbuilt. (Arocs, 42025, some creator set my kid wanted, and oddly, 42009),

    Powered Up

    If you think Powered Up sounds bad, people around here talk about engine efficiency in terms of Fuel Utilization

    Well done, Grum; but, where is the little white truck

    42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    Wow, look what happens when you get busy at work for 12 hours - had to read through 6+ pages of comments. Is it me, or are the Unimog tires significantly flattened due to vehicle weight? See rear tire, or could be just the angle of view.

    What did we tell you about posting pictures of clone-brand sets . Actually, I am just flabbergasted that someone would do this, I can't imagine the cost of all the printing filaments used. Very impressive results, especially the "nano"-motors.
  14. I have the same invisible icon on my Android phone, albeit it's an older model.

    Instead of building Technic, I've had a go at some kit models - here is a 1964 Chevrolet Impala, stock version (except mine had single, not dual exhaust), complete with 1970's Earl Scheib $100 paint job - interior/exterior colors are authentic to the car we finally sold, in working condition, after 20 years good service. and the obligatory underside view They truly don't make them like this anymore
