  1. Some time ago, there was posted a comment, based on an interview with a LEGO designer, that each product line had a certain fixed number of new molds, prints and color changes per year, the number of which depends on the number of parts or sets each product line produces. I believe that Technic has unlimited color changes, but limited new molds. IDEAS, for example, is allotted no new molds and only limited color changes, but apparently they get lots of new prints. Star Wars, I can imagine, can get many new molds, color change, and prints.
  2. New new molds so far, except for the bulldog... means that the upcoming sets most likely will have new parts, especially the Chiron and this year's flagship set. Also, PF2 probably sucked up a good amount of the new part allowance.
  3. Great review, and I agree this is a great set for mod and kids. A question - why does the front axle have two trans-orange round 1x1 tiles?
  4. Sanctum Sanctorum Pepe's Pizza MOD

    Dang, I thought you were asking about modifying it to be Frank Pepe's Pizzeria Neopolitana in New Haven, CT!
  5. Grum's Shed

    The old axle in the gear trick. I sometimes do similar to help in assembly. Getting there and looking good, Grum.
  6. 21314 - LEGO® TRON: Legacy

    You are correct sir, I guess I need a better quality display
  7. 21314 - LEGO® TRON: Legacy

    Cehnot - note that the wheels on the model are somewhat hollow, seems like you are using dishes on yours.
  8. 21314 TRON: Legacy Revealed

    A bit pricey for only 230 pieces - probably due to all of the trans elements - but what a set - looks like stay-up-till-midnight purchase, and at least two sets (one for work, one for the kid)
  9. What are you listening to?

    Hyaena, Siouxie and the Banshees. Features Robert Smith, of The Cure, on guitar.
  10. 21314 - LEGO® TRON: Legacy

    Well, after seeing the teaser video, I might be re-sold as a must-get, hopefully official images soon.
  11. Grum's Shed

    6-1/2 hours in one day! Looking good, Grum. Not having the set, it is good to see how it goes together and what it looks like on the inside.
  12. 21314 - LEGO® TRON: Legacy

    This leaked image is different enough from the IDEAS submission that I am starting to have some doubts about getting it, went from a must-have to a maybe, although 2x on the lightcycles is nice. Will wait for official images and/or reviews before deciding. I wonder if TLG got the wheels to spin, to give the set some play value? Unlike the IDEAS set, the leaked image is not movie-accurate.
  13. [MOC] Apollo Launch Tower (WIP)

    Obviously, get a beer! Then shrink each level one plate, to maintain realistic looks. Great work, by the way
  14. New LEGO Initiative

    The best option, and is much more renewable, is to make new polyethylene from recycled polyethylene.
  15. What about the fact that the "LEGO" logo (say that 10 times real fast - LEGO logo) is on almost every exposed stud. If TLG wanted to, they could claim copyright infringement for every visible stud. I guess if you are promoting the use of bricks, then its OK.
