  1. Yes, you need a tablet, just as stated on the box. More of my Boost reviews:
  2. I think that other than the body looking a bit too narrow, this looks like a huge improvement over the disaster that the official B-model is :)
  3. Ever wanted to see the LEGO Eiffel Tower upside-down, attached to the bottom of a table? Here's your chance, with a product that is a rebrand of the famous Nimuno Loops ($1.6M gathered at Indiegogo):
  4. The instructions show the grey command module, but without the print on it, and they don't show where to take it from or that you have to remove the white one. It just suddenly goes from white to gray, which may well look like a printing error. I'm aware of mr. Armstrong's passing and I'm sure he would have liked the set. The YT videos are non-editable, as I'm sure you know.
  5. I'm not sure if reviews are welcome in this part of the forum, but it seemed to me like a more fitting place than e.g. historic themes. If I'm wrong, please move the thread. Pros and cons followed by TWO videos below (a review and a separate speed build video): Pros: - incredibly BIG, surprisingly detailed and accurate - comes with a beautiful instructions book featuring the whole story of the Apollo 11 program; a wonderfull lesson in history - includes unique and useful printed pieces and nice nanofigures, too - great display set; the rocket can be displayed vertically or horizontally, and accompanied by the Moon landing and splashdown scenes - features craziest building techniques I've seen in an official LEGO set - relatively cheap at 5.6p / 6.1c per piece Cons: - limited playability; primarily a display set - very tall and quite heavy; easy to knock down and thus potentially unsafe for young children - wanting instructions; to properly reenact the Apollo 11 mission, you need to alter the CSM module in a way not explained in the instructions - can be difficult to build due to the very unusual building techniques being used - parts of the build are pretty boring, as you have to build 4 copies of the same part repeatedly
  6. Strv.-103C

    Gotta say, it really blows my two S Tank models out of the water. You've outdone yourself, sir :) Perhaps the model would get more comments if published in the Technic section?
  7. I don't and their job is to look nice, just like with the other two dinos.
  8. "Collaboration" meaning that they've asked Ambassadors for some suggestions as to how to build some parts of it, such as teeth, eggs etc. I'm unable to tell how closely they've followed our suggestions but now that I look at it, the eyes seem pretty close to a design I've sent. As far as I know, the final design was all done by Lego and assembled by their workers. They might have just refined a selected few of our ideas.
  9. The Technic part of the History Collections, since I finally got to see a perfect-condition Technic Shuttle in flesh. It would be nice to see the new Millennium Falcon in there, too.
  10. Last Wednesday, September 6th, I was kindly granted an early entrance to the LEGO House with a camera and here's the resulting video. Please keep in mind that the House will have more to offer when it officially opens on September 28th, and that there was still some work in progress on several exhibits. Special thanks to TLG's Jan and Trine for making it possible :)
  11. Show us your Working Place

    A bit late, but here's my LEGO room tour:
  12. Mark V Tank

    The Bovington Museum has one male Mark V, exactly the H41 unit from which I've taken the markings for my model, and it's not in the working order anymore.
  13. Mark V Tank

    I was unable to find out the maximum slope possible to climb by the original Mark V. Finding any documentation for a vehicle from 100 years ago is, well, not easy.
  14. It's been a while since I've built a tank model. This time I wanted it to look accurate and perform well. You'll be the judges of looks, but I dare to assume that ability to cross 22 cm wide trenches, climb 9 cm tall vertical obstacles and ascend a 31° slope counts as decent performance. Not to mention that the hull is built partially upside-down, and includes partial interior based on that of the original tank.
