  1. You made me buy 42020 Twin-rotor Helicopter to build your bird alternate model (and maybe have you sign it if I ever bump into you), and now you're making me buy a snow groomer to build a Johnny 5? You're pure evil! 😅
  2. From the image, the parts look teal to me, not green. The white balance on the photo may be wrong, though.
  3. According to Wikipedia, its construction has its fair share of nasty stuff: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neom#Controversies
  4. LEGO set numbering has always been inconsistent, so Friends taking the 42s doesn't surprise me. Technic was until now the exception.
  5. If the segments are continuous (in which case, is it wrong to still call them "segments"?) and the servo is indeed capable of partial rotation, they most likely constitute a potentiometer. That has its potential problems, as any gamepad owner with stick drift (which happens with potentiometer-base analogue sticks, but not Hall effect-based ones) can tell you.

    I tried it but it uses my phone's secondary camera, which, being wide-angle and with no autofocus, makes it almost impossible to read the QR codes. The Brick Search app, on the other hand, was flawless for me.
  7. As @kbalage said in one his reviews, LEGO sets tend to be directed towards a broader, more casual audience, while CaDa sets tend to be directed towards a narrower, more experienced audience.
  8. Yeah, you really don't want us to report you to the admin, Jim.
  9. Actually, we've been getting tan Technic parts, but only usually in pallets for forklifts. But indeed tan as a main body colour for a model hasn't been done yet.

    Speaking of which, I always thought it was officially spelled "M:Tron" with a colon, not "M-Tron" with a hyphen.

    Maybe the hair piece has a small hole for attachments, like many Friends hairs?
  12. To test Pybricks' recent feature of Xbox controller connectivity, I made this small program. After connecting to the controller, it lights up the LED in white when you press one of the buttons, orange when you press a direction on the D-pad, and gradually other colours as you move the sticks or triggers. You can see the code here: https://github.com/AVCampos/lego-pybricks-xbox-test The program assumes you're using a Technic hub, but can easily run on other compatible hubs just by changing two lines of code. I hope it's of help for your projects!
  13. I love it as an accent colour, but as a main colour...
