    60154 + 4564 = 37?

    Do you have pictures of the remaining parts? I just had a look at the bricklink inventory but there really aren't all that many usefull pieces included with this set.

    Custom prints on tiles

    The quality of those prints looks great. Where did you get them? Are those prints durable? I built Destiny's Bounty last weekend and thought to myself that I would really like to get the pieces printed instead of applying the included stickers.

    3.5 years old is too young. I wouldn't worry about him not being able to control your trains at that age. Get him something without a motor that he can push along and then get him the new passenger train when he is at least 5 years old. Since you don't own any of the PF stuff yet, it's better to just wait a few more weeks for the release of the new Powered Up system anyway.
  4. Just tell the sceptics that it calms you down after a stressful day at work. When talking to a female, you may want to add that it's healtier than drinking five bottles of beer every night.

    Control board for block signals

    Get 5 mm LEDs just like the one that were used in 7860, sand the lip off and cut the legs as short as possible. Leave no more than 1 mm. Drill out the "+" sections of a 1x3 thin technic liftarm. Make the holes big enough so that 5 mm LEDs barely fit in there. Insert your 3 LEDs into the 1x3 liftarm. Use as little glue as possible. If any. Wire up the LEDs using thin enamel coated wire. Remove the marked sections (see picture) of a 1x3 tile and drill a hole that's barely big enough for the enamel coated wires to pass through. Glue the 1x3 liftarm with your LEDs to the 1x3 tile. After routing the wires through the hole, of course. Use as little glue as possible. Glue the 1x3 tile with the attached liftarm onto the top of an antenna that has the newer style flat top. Carefully glue the wires to the back of the antenna, if you want it to look nice. Hollow out a 2x2 or 2x3 or brick. Drill a hole in one side that's barely big enough to pass the enamel coated wires through. Put a tiny PCB inside the brick that connects the enamel coated wires to some sort of micro JST connector. Depending on how many wires are needed. Or just solder the wires to the connector. Cut a hole for the JST connector in the opposing side of the brick. Use needle files. Edit: If you want it to have that shroud, then take a piece of cardboard or thin plastic, cut it to size, paint it black and glue it onto the liftarm. No 3D printer needed. Actually, you can use a "Hose, Rigid 3mm D." instead of the antenna. That way the wires can be completely hidden, if you are willing to drill two holes through the green 4x4 plate. In that case you only need something like a 2x2 45° slope to house the JST connector.
  6. It's the most overrated, overhyped and overpriced set that LEGO has released in a very long time. So no, I won't be buying this set. However, I could see myself getting the Pirate Rollercoaster at the right price.
  7. The game was released two years ago. 2019 is way too late. Meh, I don't care about the IP anyway.

    That's about the controllers. They're letting potential customers know, that they can't use the new remote with the old IR based system or vice versa. All we can do is hope for an adapter or maybe a possible mod (swapping out the cable) that allows us to use our old motors with the new PF2 stuff. I wonder why they don't just show us the new PF2 parts and connectors. The Chinese know what those bits look like anyway. There's no point in hiding it from us any longer.

    2018 Lego Trains

    ... and dark green, dark brown, reddish brown as well as light and dark grey. I'd also take some in dark tan, please. Of course the other colours would be welcome, too. I also wanted those window glas pieces in trans black as well as a few more in trans clear. Without train windows, putting train doors in all the other current sets feels like a massive slap in the face. Just like the little polybag train that was leaked a few days ago. Must have went like this: "You've been asking for a new creator train for 4 years? Here, choke on that." Well, at least the black train wheels may drop in price for a few weeks. I'm sure it's our last chance to stock up on those. I also fully expect them to ask for at least 129€.

    Powered Up

    As long as you don't have to store boxes full of 4.5V Train/Basic motors. I think I have close to 20 of those and never really used any of them.

    Oh, "not pleasing". If your highness would be kind enough to check the prices for large train wheels: https://www.bricklink.com/catalogPG.asp?P=85489b&ColorID=11 For the price of just 6 of those wheels you could get a complete Lepin knock off of the Emerald Night. Shipped. I personally didn't enjoy spending more than 60€ on two complete sets of those wheels on Bricklink. Those three are some of the worst LEGO trains ever. I was in my teens but not yet an adult when they released 4559. A cousin who was too young when the Metroliner was released ended up getting 4559 as a christmas gift. I hated that train and even he wasn't happy with it since he had already played with my Metroliner and 7735 at that point. Neither of us were AFOLs at the time.

    If you are willing to pay 329€ for this set, then don't complain when next years modular building will be 249€ instead of 149€. You've been warned.
