  1. I'm really pleased that a post I made 8 years ago is still going strong and hopefully helping some people out. I don't work at the same school anymore as I did back then so don't have access to all the gear, I so should have taken it with me, I bet it's either sitting in a cupboard gathering dust or has been thrown out!


  2. I've just borrowed a Minstorms set with the intention of running a very basic backwards and forwards train. The idea was that it would run to one end of the line, stop for a 20secs then run to the opposite end of the line where it would dump its load (by running a different motor) and run back.

    I have the converter cable to enable me to plug my train motor into the EV3, I was planning on using IR sensor at the front and back of the train to know when I'd reached the wall. Unfortunately my inexperience with this programming is meaning that this is no as easy to get to work as I expected can anyone please give any guidance as to how to program this to work.

    Thanks

    Hi, I'm new here. Google led me to this thread from 2012. I have the Control Lab software but I do not have any instruction manuals for it. There are manuals online for the traditional Lego-building aspect -- I'm looking for the software instructions. Can anyone direct me to it, please? (Not interested in newer software or third-party software.)

    I don't think I ever found instructions I just made it up as I went along, unfortunately I've moved schools since then so don't have access to any of it anymore :( I'd hate to think that they may have binned it all now, we had great fun playing very basic Lego Robot Wars with it all :)


  4. Hi I hope this is the right place to post but wanted to let people know about a new event that we are holding in Ware Hertfordshire UK, on the 14th April

    Details can be found on our facebook page www.facebook.com/WaresTheBricks/ and on our website www.brickcentral.org/events/wares-the-bricks/ we haven't finalised our displayers line up yet so if you would like to come along please fill in the form that you will find on the website.

  5. I have every figure from series 1-13 (I'll be getting 14 when available locally, maybe this weekend as we'll be in Legoland) I also have Team GB (3sets) both Simpsons series & TLM. I have the Toy Soldier so I guess the only one I'm missing really is Mr Gold, although I do have a custom so that I can pretend I'm complete :)

  6. Hi a bit of a request, I was wondering if anyone had got an image of the logos for the two CMFs Baseball teams, I wanted to do a display and print off the team Logos but I can't find them online anywhere and don't have the skills myself to do them.

    Many Thanks

    Thanks for the advice Luxor V :classic:


  7. The Tesco deal is great because currently if you spend your clubcard points on days out vouchers £2 of points is worth £10 in days out vouchers, so 1000 points is worth £50 of vouchers, which equates to free Lego :-)

  8. This was always one of my favourite sets growing up, and i still have it built in my 'Lego Shed' I love this modern version great work.

    Rather than put a 16x32 behind the snack bar couldn't you put one in front so it is set back from the road a bit allowing tables etc in front. I also see a phone box and post box in the little paved area, that seems quite typical in town centers

  9. The pick a brick wall is in the same building as Scarab Bouncers and the exit of Laser Raiders but when we were there over Easter it only had very basic pieces in it. There is a discount shop above the Star Wars mainland which is usually worth a visit to see if they have any bargains. We are annual pass holders so make the 90min journey fairly regularly with our 4yr old and 2yr olds there is plenty to keep them happy and if you choose your rides carefully you don't usually have to queue too long.


  10. My other issue is that the older instructions are in metric sizes (A4 & A5) and the newer instructions are in English system sizes (letter, etc). Stores in the US don't sell metric sizes. I can order A4 sheet protectors off of Amazon, but for the two pocket pages, I'm at a loss. Martha Stewart for Avery makes a two pocket sheet protector, which works great for the half page instructions. Apparently the same brand in the UK makes the same thing with A5 pockets, but the UK Staples online store doesn't ship to the US.

    That's exactly what I use, I have lever arch files with a mixture of A4 single pocket, twin pocket & 4 pocket protectors for the different sized instructions.
