  1. Thanks for responding. I noticed how the L-Motors fit nicely in your model, but I didn't realize until just now that they have 2 pin holes on the corded end. That way they fit securely where you placed them. The lack of connections is one of my disappointments with M-motors, so I might just splurge for a couple more L-motors.
  2. I have a question about this setup. Is there any reason why I shouldn't use M-motors in the position above where the 3 L-motors are positioned? Unfortunately, I only have 1 spare L-motor, so I'm limited at the moment to 3 M or 3 XL. If it will ruin the M-motors or be problematic in some other way, then I'd rather order some L's. Thanks!
  3. Deals on new Lego seem to come and go rather quickly. For instance, yesterday Walmart.com had the new Technic Ocean Explorer for $91, now it's back up near MSRP. It's one of those things you have to check daily, if you're in the market for a deal. Other online retailers are the same.
  4. Probably from 60161: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=3068bpb1088&idColor=2#T=S&C=2&O={"color":2,"ss":"US","rpp":"100"}
  5. You forgot to fume over the fact that the bigger 1H sets will arrive in the USA about 6 months after Europe. I'm excited because my wallet is going to be happy this year. All the 2H sets suck and the major 1H aren't worth the price. The Ocean Explorer set looks really nice, but it's a sham for the Technic line. It should have been a creator set. I'll probably just go with the Arocs, since it's more appealing than what's coming.
  6. Did you call a special # or the regular 1-800-835-4386 for bricks & pieces customer service? I ordered a panther and leopard on the 26th (hasn't shipped), but still would like a tiger.
  7. The mods pinned it and put it at the top of the topics list with a bright red icon, so naturally I didn't see it. :)
  8. FYI: Lego Shop @ Home finally shows the remaining 1H sets as coming soon (Aug 1) and as a neat surprise lists the 2H sets for same release. Prices are shown and some are crazy high. For those outside the USA or N.A. you may not realize we're still waiting for the major 1H sets, so the release date is welcome news.
  9. [MOC] Disney Collectable Minifigures Series

    These are really great, though I think Pongo should come with Cruella de Vil instead of a handbag. I'd say just release them all in series 2, collect all 36 figs.
  10. UCS Milano question

    I don't have an answer to your question, though I did see the video a couple weeks ago and was wowed by the model. Where did you find instructions for it? Somehow I missed that part.
  11. I guess Lego doesn't expect the USA to enjoy Technic as much. I figured we'd get the remaining 1st half sets today with all the other releases, but that didn't happen. Oh, well. Fortunately, most of the sets for the year look lousy.
  12. Neat. You'd have to work on the swapped color versions a bit more and use the white roll-cage windscreens. It doesn't come in dk. red or yellow. I'm betting the domes don't either.
  13. I've been modifying my 42039 (24 hrs racecar) to be remote controlled with an sbrick and was wondering if the power functions light unit will work for that set? I don't have any of them, so I'm not sure if the wires are long enough to reach both light sections in the front (or two sets of PF lights one front and back). Thanks in advance! P.S. I just got my 1st sbrick last week and they are amazing. Now I want another.
  14. [WIP MOD] 75105 Falcon

    Unfortunately, it's really hard to say as we may be talking over a decade since this mod was shown. Before cheese slopes and bricks with side stud (only headlights and technic bricks / half pin were available). I did it with my 4504 Falcon and at the time there were plenty of photos to make it happen. I do recall having to use a little superglue as there was a section that didn't connect well. Here is my old Brickshelf gallery for Flail's Falcon, though it's so old that I no longer know the account info for it: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=375458 (it even had a toilet!)
  15. This is somewhat unrelated to the topic, but I've noticed that the OP's Technic book is being listed on ebay as a PDF from time to time. I don't know if that means it has been copied and converted (eg: stolen?).
