    Where is 'the line' when it comes to custom parts?

    The tips don't even fit Lego metrics btw, do they? I'm nearly sure they just outsourced normal shoelaces.

    For me it's not about the brand it's about the system (that Lego didn't invent anyway). A third-party recolor of a Lego part, or a part that could/should have been Lego but just isn't/isn't yet, to me is more "Lego" than a shoelace just because a Lego set happens to have a shoelace in it.

    Most compact lighting

    The sleeve is a bit thick but the wires inside are pretty thin. Also they were naked half a cm before the LED, making it even easier. But still not hair-thin like what you're talking about, I've seen those yeah. I'd be worried though, I accidentally unsoldered another LED pressing the stud too much.

    Aftermarket pieces?

    Pretty easy to find a Bar 3L in flat silver on Ali. However, flat silver is kind of a special color, not sure it's gonna match Lego's 100% perfectly.

    Some TAN tiles are darker than other?

    Lego changed pearl gold on purpose not so long ago. Slight color differences however are production problems and aren't anything new. And no color is immune.

    Most compact lighting

    How frigging cool is this? Years ago I had posted about "fishing LEDs" that are pretty much 3mm LEGO-bar-sized batteries with a LED attached. And I've used them a bit but they're still a bit too long. Here I needed something for the eyes of my T-800, but didn't really wanna have to pass wires through everything until a large box, so I checked out for other options. Remember i-Brix? Well Ali is filled with induction LED kits now. I loved the idea, but it really seems that the range isn't great at all, and the lights themselves are quite big. So I found these. It's pretty much the size of the battery, + the wires that the seller cuts on demand, and the second tiniest LEDs out there. Pretty amazing. Wires are still thick and I had to cut through my support part, but well it's that or it's wonky on the stud, it will always be a problem I guess. And the switch is frigging magnetic, you just swipe a magnet over the head and the eyes light up! Not gonna change anything in the world of modular lighting, but it's pretty amazing for mechs & vehicles.

    All the good/useful stuff already out of stock, "lol" I guess I'll keep making this one out of the more powerful chinese brackets, until Lego allows us to buy legit ones
  8. I don't know if this really matters, but the ring of the new 78258 "2L bar" has been made 1 precise plate thick. In reality it's slightly less than that (I don't know the exact metrics though, it's a tiny difference), making that pesky ring even more annoying in the LDD than it already is in reality. But perhaps it really is 1 plate thick due to a slight flange towards the bar, I don't know. What's more annoying is that there are various moulds for the classic 2x2 round brick, with different depth at which the axle cross starts. But only one version in the LDD in which that same 2L bar gets blocked pretty early, while I the most common mould allows for the ring to go fully inside the brick. Fortunately we can substiture for part 92947 (round brick with side notches), for which the cross is deeper, and that doesn't actually block (at all, lol) the ring.

    It's funny that last month Lego listed these under a new ID, and removed the old versions. I got them and they are exactly the same, with a tiny support added in the middle inside. But right now you can only buy the right of the new mould, and the left of the old mould.

    [MOC] mid-scale Millennium Falcon (WIP)

    Thanks part 68325. It only appeared in 2020 so I couldn't use it in V1.

    [MOC] mid-scale Millennium Falcon (WIP)

    Since I saw a couple of good MF's passing by recently, here's a quick update on my V2 that has been gathering dust for a couple of months waiting for printed tiles for the prong holes.

    Yeah I generally get a couple of large scratches in sets bags, but microscratches occur when tossing parts, even lightly but for long times, so normally a kid playing. Only thing, that windscreen came out in 2020 and only in a few "adult" sets, so it's less likely to find it "used" by a kid. Technically it could happen in a set's bag, but it'd really require shaking the box a lot & on purpose.

    Quite surprisingly, I got my windshield in a ziplock bag, in my B&P order! Well the orange one wasn't, and is slightly scuffed, but the larger one is in a PRISTINE state, there is not a single microscratch. You can't get that in a set. Well done Lego. I'm wondering if the one (left) I got from Bricklink was really new from a set. It's fully covered with microscratches, you'd have to shake a box for days to get this. But why would a seller bother to double-protect a used windshield with an adhesive cover and a ziplock just to mark it as new for just 1 buck?
