    Hello! Returning after long absence!

    Welcome back @battle_gorilla.

    Really nice. The nine wide allows to add so many great details! I like the stickers too, they really add to the realism.
  4. Wow what a great MOC. I especially like the logo, but the rest is also fabulous!
  5. For the lights: I think the same solution would work for the other items. A simple multimeter and a lab power supply could help to identify if the parts work.

    Why were some sets region specific?

    Some sets still are. E.g. special asian sets, or sets together with Target. Also some are limited to e.g. parks. Back in those days there was no worldwide distribution like nowadays I think, that could also have caused it. Santa Fe sets were rare finds in the EU even though we managed to get some.

    Is It Possible To Reintroduce Old Sets?

    But they do it occasionally, take Review: 40370 Steam Engine as an example. It is a replica of the 7810 Push-Along Steam Engine!
  8. Wow! C.S. Lewis would really enjoy it Lasse :) Great job. Most scenes are instantly recognizable.
  9. Really nice! I guess the black cat truck (5571) is 'on its way' as well? Do minifigures fit? That would be especially cool of course.

    [ENTRY] Buried Treasure 6235 - Remake

    Very nice @omby54. Very nice work. B.t.w. mind you that we expect everyone to speak English at Eurobricks so could you please fix that? I'm affluent enough in French to be able to understand you but if I would post in Dutch, others in French, Chinese, German, Danish, whatever it would become very difficult :)

    [ENTRY] Treasure Island

    Wow very cool job indeed. Those new pieces can really make a difference and bring such a set to a level that wasn't possible back in the eighties.
  13. Wasn't done yet indeed, fighting with the spoiler tag... Well I tried to keep it a little promiscuous but decently enough for a little wider public. But again I don't think LEGO would transform it in to a real set.
  14. MOC 6500 A Promiscuous Sailor Captain Encouraged by the complements of you guys I tried another one :) Captain Bluecoat met a nice lady somewhere in the harbor. They agreed to meet under the lantern near the pier. He was so excited by the nice lady that his pants dropped (or did he just forget his belt?!). Part count: 39 But then again...

    [ENTRY] 6300 Treasure Found

    Thanks all for the great feedback everyone. I agree that some additional plates would make it more appealing as a store set but it would bump the part count considerably: This already bumps it to 38 pieces. So for the purpose of the challenge I would stick to v2 I think (i.e. the one on top).
