    Well, FWIW, I once purchased a "NIB" 8110, but the box had a large, 10 cm, hole in it, sitting on the store shelf. Opened it at the store, in the presence of the salesperson, (and thanks to the review here on EB) I was able to confirm all of the bags and parts were present. Got it at 50% off.
  2. NIce little review, thanks again, Jim.

    Review: 70841 Benny's Space Squad

    Nice little set and review, but I find the head photo / front page photo somewhat misleading as it includes elements not found in this set.
  4. I was "ManagerFlakyTeeth" what the ...??? Now I am "ChiefSecretiveEagle" much better
  5. Who knew Technic could be so entertaining! What a massive build and great video, truly impressive - I especially like the use of the curved gear racks from the BWE.

    Pulling a Porsche Macan with Technic

    I suppose, as long as you are not in a hurry. Is the torque due to use of BuWizz, or can any power source work just as well?

    Uefchen - yet another Rube-Goldbergesque creation! I really admire how you are not afraid to get your parts wet and/or contaminated with food, etc.

    Technic 2019 Set Discussion

    The upcoming https://shop.lego.com/en-US/Move-Hub-88006 seems more useful and interesting, with two built in servo motors and a tilt sensor, plus two I/O connectors, listed for $79.99 Not sure if there is any sets using this part, could be a hint for what is coming in second half 2019?

    42093 Corvette ZR-1

    I'm not feeling the 'Vette - maybe once reviews come out or we see it in the flesh. If its being marketed as a Corvette, it should be immediately recognizable, and this is not - better to have been a larger model or have some new parts to achieve the look, rather than compromise. So many small details are off, that the whole is disappointing. Will remain open-minded, though.

    Technic 2019 Set Discussion

    So much for Corvette-anticipation. Maybe I'll buy an extra-Tron ideas set instead... The cherry picker, while nothing new or creative, would be a great introduction to Technic for a 5-6 year old. Easy to build, has functionality, etc. and looks like something familiar while clearly showing how the function works.

    42095 RC Tracked Racer replica

    Nice job ZBLJ! Wonder if adding track studs would help the performance on the indoor slope test?

    42095 Remote Control Stunt Racer

    New parts are not idly created- wonder what they have in store for us 2H19 or 2020? I am not a fan of the A model, B seems a bit more suited to the tracks and oversized sprocket. Also, this set passed the 11-year old approval test, so I am guessing TLG knows what it is doing. I am going to guess that we will see something similar every two to three years.

    42096 Porsche 911 RSR

    If I was a Porsche fan, I'd be ecstatic over this set - iconic, great display, decent price point, etc. But alas, not for me.

    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.
