    Which set should I buy?

    I'd recommend picking up a copy of 8417/8430 Mag Wheel Master to compare/contrast with 8838 Shock Cycle. Also definitely get something with a Technic Figure. Now that I've gone through your whole list, looks like you've got those both covered! I'd have to push you on getting the 8068. It's a really nice machine. New and studless, yet everything is still manually mechanically driven - something I really like (sets that work via gears and hand power, instead of just batteries). '97 seems to be a hot topic year. I was going to recommend 8229 for it's varied use of studded/studless and inexpensive price, but you've got a good pick with 8414 too.

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    While not exact, check out this: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/270408
  3. We've actually never had a steam train locomotive. I think that'd be an interesting one to build; especially a 'Shay' type locomotive. I'm working on plans to MOC one, but it's slow going. The long square tubes at each end of the three vertical pistons are sliding joints that lengthen and shorten as the train goes around curves.
  4. Thought: They've printed an 'errata' or 'addendum' page explaining it all and have to re-pack them with the added page?

    Porsche Pricing & Availability

    I found the rims on the "replacement parts" section of TLG's site:
  8. I think the reason for the D-N-R ordering of the gear selector and sticker is fairly un-complex, even if silly when you think about it. Forward gears are forward on the LEGO car, and reverse is towards the back of the car. Makes sense that way, but when put against every car on the road, it's backwards.
  9. You'd think the rules for the code as well as the site would be part of the information that is BLATANTLY OBVIOUS. I think that makes it even more disappointing.
  10. That IS lame. Both the content, and that they used your code on you.
  11. Seasider posted it first: http://www.lego.com/...nic/codebreaker Each code is only good TWICE.
  12. Any chance to check out what the code is for by anyone that has one? I'm also on the list of people who really want to know what's hidden behind that door...

    Porsche Pricing & Availability

    Wow. So $450, then: eBay takes 10%, $45. PayPal takes their cut...3%? Using 3% of the transaction that's another $13.50. Shipping via USPS (as listed) with a weight of 8 pounds (3.6 kg) is $28 for ground, $49.50 for Priority Original cost of set + tax is ~$321 So that's $108 in fees on $450, making the total profit.......$21.

    LEGO Store King of Prussia, PA has them in stock.
  15. I figured that some of the review style was dictated by requests from TLG/Porsche to do things a certain way.
