  1. Nice ! Captures the broad look very well. The new fenders are really opening up possibilities for the creative ! Imagine if TLG had created the new fenders (both large and small) in red, white and black first. Many more amazing car MOCs would have blossomed.

    42100 QA Issues

    I think that's amazing customer support. it's unlikely there is any other company which will replace parts at no cost with such minimum of fuss. And imagine doing this worldwide ... just amazing. I believe the quality issues will get corrected automatically when the feedback goes about the number of replacement requests. A similar issue had happened in the early days of the PF servo motor. Many of them were breaking down with almost no usage, so that they would turn only on one side. Lego would have had to spend a lot of money on replacements ... and eventually they fixed it somehow so that the newer batches of the servo work fine.
  3. Wow, what a beautiful MOC !! Functions so well and looks awesome. Looking at the photo, I first thought that it was more like a city/creator model. But was pleasantly surprised to see all the functions packed inside !

    [MOC] Lego 42100 Mini-Replica

    Ingenious little creation ! Great usage of parts. Video was entertaining and hilarious. Loved the point by point comparison with the bigger one
  5. That's actually good news. It's a good sign if the designers/engineers are brimming with so many ideas and creative work, that they are short of time. That means Technic is a healthy subtheme and, if at all, TLG needs to hire more designers.
  6. I think TLG hired one MBA too many
  7. I suspect TLG very well know what they are doing. Perhaps their market research suggests that nowadays most people buying big sets do not rebuild. (I wouldn't be surprised). Certainly creativity/ability of designers is not the issue here. From year 2019, both corvette and car transporter have very good B-models. From 2018, the rally car, forklift, and first responder have good B-models, and the Mack truck has an exceptional B model. So "no B model" may very well be intentional. We can take this as a challenge/opportunity

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    For the price conscious (and gearbox haters), a poor man's 4x4 ... has an equally unique colour scheme. (From Jim's 42069 review)

    [MOC] Custom pickup Zil 130

    Beautiful truck, looks awesome !! And thanks for showing the belly shot in the video.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    I am hoping that the set will be buildable with existing parts to a large extent. Because of the boxy appearance, replacing the new wheel arches with liftarms may not spoil the look so much. Wheels may also be an issue. Fingers crossed. Looking forward to grey, red/white, black, etc versions

    [MOC] Reform Muli T10X

    Somehow missed this earlier. What an amazing truck !! Clean lines and looks so elegant. Impossible to guess so many functions are packed inside !
  12. I will suggest not distributing instructions until the Lego ideas process is over. After that, I guess you will be free to share instructions irrespective of Lego's decision.
  13. Wow, what a beauty !! It looks fantastic. And the video shows it runs quite well. Have supported on Ideas. Really hope this one makes it through.

    Steph77's Moc corner

    Very nice final result for the Porsche ! Getting the shape do good in this scale is amazing ! Surely deserves instructions Would be great to have "challenging" instructions where the model has to be built from a few pictures showing the "exploded view".

    [MOC] Audi Quattro Group B Rally Car

    Fantastic model ! Clean lines and efficient parts usage. Today's MOCs (and sets) have a parts bloat. This is a welcome departure.

    [MOC] Turbo Snail

    Awesome ! Ingenious use of the bucket ! Thanks for sharing.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    I am disappointed with the colour choice, not because the colour is bad, but because it is unlikely Lego will ever give us a complete range of pieces with this new colour. 42039 and 42069 had a similar odd colour choice ... And a few years on, the range of parts in those colours has not improved. Just imagine if the purple wheel arches in 42069 were instead white, red, or black ?

    Steph77's Moc corner

    Thanks for sharing the excavator video. It's a joy to see it in action. And of course it would have been fun to design and build it. Great MOC.

    Lego GBC Dual Forks Module

    Very nice and creative ! Fun to watch. Thanks for sharing.
  20. This looks much better now.
  21. Sir, the functionality you have packed into this small MOC is amazing !! And it looks great as well. A complete package !
  22. Outstanding MOC !! Your earlier Vulcan was fantastic, but this one is even better. I absolutely loved both your cars at this scale. The typical larger scale supercars are too big and heavy. I wish Lego was giving such creative sets in this scale.

    [MOC] Factory with working forklift

    Wow, what an ingenious build. No less than magic (until you reveal the secret). Also, the mechanisms combined with such a clean look is so impressive. Thanks for sharing. By the way, the turntable is also nice.
  25. Everything you do is such high quality ! I am amazed. Your work ethic is inspirational. Thank you so much for sharing.
