    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    Holy hell yes, I know right. Also, definitely

    MOC Fairchild A10 (WIP) pics added

    I could only really suggest either curved panels or wheel pieces with something on the outside, but idk how you'd make that

    This looks amazing so far, but (and this is no fault of yours) the turbofan cowlings' ribbed aesthetic is really jarring. It's a shame that's the only way to use Technic to get circular cylinders.
  4. CaDA respectfully disagrees lol hail corporate
  5. no u But even with that in mind, I can't recall ever seeing stuff like this. I see people posting wishlists of what they'd like to see in a set, I see people commenting on sets being too expensive for what they offer, I see people discussing the feasibility/likelihood of features, and often saying that a set isn't for them, but off the top of my head I've never seen people actively complain about sets having features they didn't want (that were purely a matter of preference, unrelated to cost). Or, at least enough people doing it to make me raise my eyebrows.
  6. I honestly can't say that I see endless childish moaning in this forum. Elsewhere sure, but not here

    Efferman's Custom Parts

    Oh man imagine that. That could totally be possible with polycarbonate filament. Surely some o-rings could be enough to seal them mostly? I've seen a guy on YouTube who made one a while back out of bottlecaps:

    I don't mean this as a request or anything, but have you ever looked into designing a fluid coupling/torque converter?
  9. Is the comparison between this and 42076 fair? They’re sets at entirely different price points
  10. I'm not much bothered by that to be honest. There’s already viable competitors. I’m not really pro the idea of supporting a huge company that can’t even support itself. That's for the Danish government to subsidise, not me.
  11. Also, I feel it's worth pointing out to consider that it's also your opinion that Lego shouldn't sit on a shelf. Fixing flaws in a set is only appropriate for someone who has multiple sets (and therefore the pieces to spare) and is happy to take them apart for MOCs - there are many people who bought the Chiron just because they wanted to build it, and therefore expect that for the hefty $600AUD pricetag it'll at least have stiff enough springs not to sag. If a new consumer doesn't have the extra springs to mod it, then they're sh*t out of luck until either they get reamed by Bricklink's shipping costs, or they spend extra money buying yet another pReMiUm Lego set that has the amount of springs they need to fix it. It's sh*tty product development and TLG should absolutely be called out for charging consumers a premium just to serve them a faulty product. It might be trivial to you, but not to others. MOCing may be the point of Lego to you, but some people just wanna put together a sports car, excavator or whatever and have the satisfaction of it working as it should. It isn't utter lunacy to want that experience, especially when you're giving away $600AUD for that. By the way, duh obviously there are courses teaching people to fix tube punctures - they're part of bike service courses. Like damn dude, there's different things that may not be immediately obvious when you go from zero mechanical experience to a full bike service. F*** anyone who didn't have your galaxy brain when they were six, and wants to know whether there are special tips for surface prep, and doing something according to manufacturing specs, right? How dare they take a course
  12. It would've been helpful to say that you're not addressing anyone in this thread in that case, as that was my and clearly a lot of others' impression.
