  1. Lego is soon to end this year

    This joke was not even inside of an Easter egg. The bunny must be busy pulling capers on everyone else.
  2. LEGO Pet Peeves

    I called them 'legos' during my kid years (not anymore), only because that's what my parents called them (and still do). Part numbers: Yes, a number w/o a picture or link is a real bummer. I'll leave the thread if I cannot understand what is being discussed otherwise. Same goes for set numbers. At least, give the name of the part or set in question. I have gotten the "Is that a set?" question a few times; it does not really bother me. Maybe because it seldom happens. The real shame is calling clone brands 'legos'. Do the same people call all computers 'IBMs', all cars 'fords' and all toilet paper 'charmin'? In some parts of the USA, all fizzy drinks are called 'coke', regardless of brand.
  3. Please help to get these bricks in red :-)

    There's nothing here. (You can Edit your post to fix this.)
  4. LEGO Pet Peeves

    The discontinuation of Sand Red.
  5. Thick vs thin base plates

    You forgot Watermelon Splat!
  6. Have you thought of storing the capes separately?
  7. LEGOLAND non-production parts

    When I saw those clear RR tracks, I immediately thought Ghost Train! Ice train is just as good a contender. Anything that is clearly trainsparent.
  8. Storage and Sorting LEGO

    Solution: Labels!
  9. What Causes Lego Bricks to Deteriorate?

    Just make sure those pieces get a good washing after the party. It would not hurt to wash your hands before doing the LEGO thing.
  10. Warped track remedy?

    Do you have any of those LEGO flexi-track segments? They might be a good candidate for coaster track, as (from what I have read) they flex well up and down, too. How much, I do not know. I do not have any, so no way I could find out.
  11. Storage and Sorting LEGO

    I have done that. Not with instruction cardboard (When did that start?), but with the boxes. The Akro-Mills cabinets I use came with dividers, but in too-low quantity (1 per drawer), so I made copies. They slot right in.
  12. PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    This so needs to happen! Suggest this to TLG; they need to get an eyeful of this!
  13. You also had your own sliding glass door to the outside? You had it made for a white! Shame it all ended. At least, you kept your entire LEGO collection, and have continued to add to it.
  14. For conductive rails, try layers: A layer of copper tape, followed by a layer of stainless steel tape. The Cu tape will provide a fast track for the electric current, while the SS tape will provide the needed durability.
  15. Storage and Sorting LEGO

    Empty LEGO boxes are just as good a candidate. Cut along the corner with the seam and lay flat. Larger boxes with their thicker, stiffer sides are good for making larger trays.
