  1. REVIEW - EB TC13 - The Mug (limited edition) Right to the end of TC13, the first foto of the EB TC13 Mug was leaked. It was quite clear that there will be only a few available, while it's total edition is limited to three. The more I'm happy, to give you an exclusive review of EB TC13 - The Mug. Disclaimer: This mug is my own. It's not my goal to promote this mug. The opinion in this review is my own and is in no way linked to EB. SET INFORMATION Number: EB TC13 Name: The Mug Theme: TC13 Pull Back Contest Released: 2018 Piece count: 1 Weight: 325g THE BOX The prize came in a huge box! The box itself is not too spectacular, but it has a nice text on it: "Daar ben ik dan. Pak mij uit." (Here I am. Unpack me) Once opened, I found out, that there is more content in this box besides the mug. For that, I have to write another review ... CONTENT OF THE BOX The mug itself is nice wrapped and looks quite safe. It comes without any manual or closer description. Maybe EB will think about a certificate or anything else that could come with a future prize. PARTS This prize comes with a single piece: THE BUILD The build was straight forward, even without instructions. THE FINISHED MODEL Front: Back: Top: Bottom: MY RATE Playability: 8/10 Parts: 7/10 Coolness: 12/10 FINAL THOUGHTS It's exclusiveness is unreachable and every piece of this limited line is very unique! The mug itself comes in a good quality and the print looks nice. While the colors of the print may vary, each owner of this mug can be proud to have his very individual edition. The playability of this mug is quite good: you can store things in it and it will even contain hot liquids until they are drunken. Besides that, the functions could have been a bit better. I can imagine self heating mugs, or self refilling ones. Try to think outside the box EB! And as you can see on the pictures, this is a left handed mug! For future editions I would recommend a right handed version, to improve it's usability. To come to an end: this prize came without any instructions. While the build wasn't too difficult, the usage was somewhat nebulous. I think it's best for coffee on Sunday mornings. Thanks to EB, EB members and TC13 voters.
  2. I'm speechless ... I will accept this special prize/challenge publicly and will try my very best to write a readable review with acceptable fotos. It would be a great honor for me.
  3. Yippee! Wow! Thank you so much for this awesome contest! Thanks to all voters, and specially to @Jim and @Milan and congratulations to all entrants. Special thanks and congrats to @Didumos69 and @Anto. Thank you for this nice contest! @Jim I would accept any special prize/challenge for sure, it would be a great pleasure. Robert
  4. So some of the contestants have been disqualified, not some votes? Were the contestants be informed already? I'm not asking for details, but it could be helpful to know what happened in general, to demonstrated that such a behavior won't be accepted. Too bad, it was such a great contest again. Beautiful entries, thrilling voting time and a bad ending ... Awesome mugs! Maybe the best prices I've seen so far.
  5. lepin vs lego

    I don't want to mix any rip-off part with my original Lego parts. You own it, you have sort it. Btw: you can highlight a users name by using the @ symbol, there's no need to write it in red, underscore and fat. ?
  6. Wow, what a beautiful engine! And awesome rendering @JunkstyleGio, thanks for giving me the "Blakbird-View".
  7. lepin vs lego

    I'm completely with @allanp! There is no reason to buy lepin parts at all! I don't want to mix any rip-off with my original Lego parts, because of the huge quality difference. I'm pretty sure my [TC13] entry can only be builded with original Lego parts, for example. Since I missed 8068 in stores and couldn't get it for a reasonable price, I builded it twice with my own parts. First time in Mid Blue and white, but the second one had the correct colors, still with my parts. And I loved it! So these fake brands are useless, stealing the fun and can be thrown away. They're rubbish, not worth the money and time.

    Gorgeous mechanics! Enter.
  9. Wow, thank you! Thank you for that video, I never saw it before. Your creations are just awesome beauties with amazing movements. Well, that Pullback can propel something with legs, but you have to be very careful with weight, maybe gearing and the construction needs to be very sturdy. Finally you will get just a few steps, what isn't really funny. That's why I decided to let it roll, and the winding up is much easier this way. After playing around with the bug for a few days, I have to say, it's pure fun to have it beside me on a table. I was pushing and pulling and rolling it around a little and it's nice to watch it, doing a few slow steps.
  10. Thank you. After I saw my video with a day distance, I think there aren't enough driving sequences. Thank you. The yellow and black combination is indeed astonishing. Specially the yellow looks somehow more brilliant to me then any other Lego color.
  11. Yippee! I'm done. I've entered this contest much earlier than I thought. First I thought I couldn't make it in time, because of the holidays. But then, the deadline was extended, so there was enough time to get the things packed. I have new photos for my entry: And finally the video: I hope you still like it. Btw: did someone noticed, that the two black bionicle tooth are not black, but taped transparent ones?
  12. 10. The Tiger Pull Bug It is powered by a single PB and has the normal behavior, pull back and release. The main mechanics can really walk on six legs, but only a few steps with one PB and almost none with two. And winding up the PB motor stresses the Lego parts around it a lot. To increase playability, I found a compromise where its rolling on wheels, but still touching the ground with the legs, creating an intimidating sound. I used isolation tape to create the stripes. Please find my entry video: And the oblige link to the topic: I hope you like it.
  13. Thanks for that! Wow, that's a really nice one! Getting this compliment from you makes me somewhat proud. Thank you. Finally i finished my video! Now I'm missing only one last photo and I'm ready to enter ...
  14. Thanks for the thumb, makes me smile Thank you too. You're right, I noticed that also. That's why EB contests are so great! I'm really waiting for all finished entries, there are beautiful creations. Thank you for your comment. I'm not absolutely happy about the stickers. Before I was using a foil, this time isolation tape, which doesn't adhere very well. The video is almost done, just a few seconds are missing ... two more days ... And I need better entry photos ...
