  1. Aussie sales! Share the news of LOCAL sales!

    Thanks Brickus and RonanSai
  2. Aussie sales! Share the news of LOCAL sales!

    Any fellow Aussies know where to buy The Old Fishing Store in Australia? Is this exclusive to TRU? ... don't have one in my state Thanks. PS even better if it's on sale (does that bring my post closer to 'on topic'? )
  3. In Warehouse

    Late addition...but in case anyone else is searching. Official key to the statuses: Cheers, Luke
  4. [PRESS RELEASE] 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017

    Well yeah...except this Lego set does weigh more than an iPhone :)
  5. Discussion: Now what?...Is Kragl the answer?

    Ha! The idea that she won't develop her own opinions because one of her parents insists on a particular way of doing something is a laugh (at least with this young lady). If anything it will galvanise her existing opinion (be it for or against) further.'s not just her collection, it's her and her three siblings. It was interesting to hear the opinions...particularly being labelled as 'insane' wife would probably agree.
  6. Discussion: Now what?...Is Kragl the answer?

    Hi everyone, I'm an AFOL and a long time collector and my children now have a good collection of their own. Recently my daughter received a 'LEGO compatible' set (Sluban) as a birthday gift from a schoolfriend. I don't want to see this set mixed in with the real LEGO....but I'm not going to take it away either. I feel a bit like I'm being a snob ...but basically...the solution I'm going for is to treat it like any non-LEGO toy i.e.. it stays separate. Obviously, this isn't as practical as separating Barbies and model cars etc. from the LEGO. The solution will probably be to glue the other model together. Any other AFOLs/parents given this any thought? Cheers, Luke
  7. I guess I'm a bit late...but here are my thoughts: The Café: "Snack Bar 675" The Family Restaurant: "Plates" The Mezzanine: "Christiansen's" LLL
  8. New LEGO Train Magazine - A Proposal

    Thanks Elroy, for posting this. A1. Absolutely....I've found Railbricks both very enjoyable and helpful over the years A2. Yes, I'd be happy to pay around 3.50EUR / 3.80USD for a digital magazine of similar quality to Railbricks. A3. Not applicable for me, but if I had something relevant to sell, yes. A4. Yes, maybe some writing, if I felt I had something new to share. I would not want to be paid. A5. Refer A4. Best incentive for me would be to give back to the community/hobby that I have had so much enjoyment from Cheers, LLL
  9. Automatic railway crossing (with Lego Mindstorms NXT)

    So awesome!! Hanso makes a good point: he's not just buying a crossing's the whole experience. Cheers, LLL
  10. sex·ism noun \ˈsek-ˌsi-zəm\ unfair treatment of people because of their sex; especially : unfair treatment of women [Ref: Merriam-Webster] Such unfair treatment of people - to put popular, brightly coloured (colored) themed sets on the shelf for people to choose to buy or ignore. There seem to be some questionable statements in the article too...about the research institute being a "response" to consumers pointing out things about the FRIENDS line.

  12. Need Help Building a Track

    Hi all, As Euan wants to run on a Mac, Bluebrick isn't 'off the shelf' in the way that the LEGO track planner is and would need a .NET application (Bluebrick site gives a link to Mono) to run. I'd suggest it's well worth the effort though, I really like the layering and easy addition of new sets in Bluebrick (haven't run it on a Mac myself yet though). Cheers, LLL
  13. Brixhibition

    Looking forward to the Southern Tas event today ... LLL Probably should mention it's still on tomorrow too
