  1. [GBC] The Akiyuki Project

    Thanks a lot!
  2. When I first saw this set I just though "Oh my god is this an ugly vehicle". I didn't like the color scheme as well. Purple! Is that even a color :) But it looks fantastic on wheels and it has rubbers for the tracks. So actually I changed my mind and will probably get one instead of the unfinished flagship technic set. I wonder how it would look like in Porsche orange. Thanks for the review!

    @9v system Not interested anymore? Why the mind change? This is still one of my favorite Mindstorm modules. Would be very cool to see it replicated :)
  4. PFx Bricks

    What a cool device. For me it was kind of a mixed bag though. The aspects listed below domrepresent my personal opinion. Yours might vary :) On the plus side I have: + Possibilities almost endless + Extensibility with future smalle Bricks + All in one box + Feature rich programmability + Small lights to fit almost everywhere + Compatibility with Lego IR Temotes + Small yet powerful + Customization stored on device rather controlled from an App + Sound support + No App required to control the Brick once it's configured + 8 programmable light ports That's what came to my mind for the negative aspects: I already invested a lot in SBricks Price almost twice as an SBricks. Bluetooth support came in late, not clear what can be done with it Not clear to me how many motors can be driven by one port Sound support is nice but can be annoying if all the models are fitted with it ;-) Maybe you focused on trains too much Not sure if two power function ports are enough for my technical models To make it clear I really like the idea and the possibilities and if you look to your direct competitors like BuWizz I would've preferred yours over theirs. I din't back Buwizz because I have my SBricks. So in the end it was it's price. I can add an additional SBrick to my model and have 4 "lightning" ports for controlling Lego original LEDs. The downside is that there are no small LEDs available that can be attached like for your Brick. An optional lightning device for the SBrick and I would be happy. While your Kickstarter campain came to a negative end I still believe your project has a lot of potential.
  5. [REVIEW] 75144 - UCS Snowspeeder

    @Jim Thanks for the offer. Actually together with my son I was able to figure it out by looking closely at the parts and the assembled images.
  6. [REVIEW] 75144 - UCS Snowspeeder

    @Jim: I'd like to know how to build the black canon. Therefore my request for more images so I can see what kind of parts are needed.
  7. [REVIEW] 75144 - UCS Snowspeeder

    Very nice review. Not too many and not to fee pictures in my opinion. Well balanced! Could you post some more details about the black rear canon, thanks
  8. Thanks so much for sharing this with us. Looking forward to seeing the ball cleaner ... :) Btw: Seems you forgot the link to the instruction or are they hidden somewehere? Edit: Found them in the first post

    Thanks a lot for improving and making instructions for this great module!
  10. Thanks for the links. I could swear I checked the parts list before and couldn't spot the caps. Pretty reare and expensive. Out of my range unfortunately.
  11. Really a well made model! What kind of wheels are you using?
  12. @Gabi_BC Very nice renderings. Fascinating how a different color scheme makes the whole jet look completely different. @efferman The wings look a LOT better now. If you improve it even more I might consider to get one of the sets. I still think that the wing don't match the overall shape of the jet though. I guess it should radically different. Maybe something like the overlay used by Sariel in his review video.

    Thanks for the picture. There's still a lot unclear to me. I'll wait for the instructions :)

    No German, but a someone from Switzerland :-) I order my parts from Bricklink, Lego (Pick a Brick and Bricks and Pieces) and sometmes from eBay. If you need more information about ordering bricks then just create a new topic and we can discuss it there. We shouldn't float this topic with buying stuff ;-) Cheers, Thomas

    Would be nice to have more detailed shots of the gearing including the motor as well as from top of the start. And some pictures from below. Maybe you could as well show how a single element looks like (I assume they're all the same) Thanks! The surface of the individual elements where the ball travels is just flat?
