  1. 2017 did also bring the first small RC set, which began the tradition of great electronics parts packs.
  2. The proof TLG themselves have this mindset is at the top floor of the LEGO House, with the distinct System and Technic (and also Duplo) dinosaurs.
  3. I have no idea, I never looked into that. I wouldn't be surprised if BT communication is inherently encrypted, so I guess an intermediary device would have to be set up to relay stuff between phone and hub, and listen to what passes through it. Again, I'm no expert in the matter, so I'm just spitballing here.
  4. The most important for that would be to understand the protocol the MK hub uses. In the absence of publicly-available documentation (which I think it's extremely likely, given what we're dealing with), that'd require either reverse-engineering the app or sniffing the Bluetooth communications between app and hub.
  5. Very interesting! To have more diversity in my LUG's Technic layouts, I've been using Belville women instead.
  6. I'm still undecided whether I like neon yellow or not because, on one hand, yet another shade makes amassing enough parts in one colour to MOC with harder; on the other, fluorescence!
  7. Ah, thanks, I didn't know that. Suing someone for using a patented part in a MOC is obviously ridiculous, but I can see the trouble with a competitor brand trying to copy it. Still, I find it weird that we don't see that drama for all parts...
  8. Is there a drama with the wave selector?
  9. Actually, the large angular motor appeared in MINDSTORMS but was adopted by Technic in the Volvo hauler and the Cat bulldozer (albeit in thankfully more neutral colours). I don't doubt that, at the very least, we'll see the smallest motor appear in some future Technic set. This! 👆
  10. Unfortunately the latter two have integrated, proprietary batteries.
  11. Could a wheel tractor-scraper be called a "hauler" by LEGO, just like they called the 42006 an "excavator"?
  12. If they simply adopted the small tractor tyres (those with the chevrons), that'd be already a good improvement.
  13. The organ donor market will be happy, though.
  14. While I don't think a large-scale ambulance would be very novel from a mechanical perspective, it would definitely be a good excuse to introduce PU lighting elements more advance than the current pair of white LEDs.
