    [WIP] Light up all Modulars with LEDs

    Blimey, if it looks better by eye than it looks in the photos then it must look amazing.

    Cheers, found the thread now.

    Zanthera, I wonder if you could show/tell us what sort of structure you have inside the boiler please? I've been trying to do a boiler that size for a while and could never quite work it out.

    Considering extra pieces when selling used sets

    On Bricklink there are inventories showing what's in the set and what's a spare. It's always worth stating "extra parts not included" or something.

    If someone can do a working log flume then I'd be really impressed

    Bumper cars usually have a pole at the back. Simply attach this pole to a rotor hidden in the ceiling.

    Have you any videos of a six-car train running with the track modifications you describe?

    As long as no one suggests "railway station". How would you even fit such a thing into 32x32 where both ends are blocked?

    My only gripe with this set is the lack of train windows. It looks like we are unlikely to be seeing anymore of them. Lack of magnets it no issue (I use bar couplings anyway) and I like the brick-built buffers. The loco could be better but all the parts are there to mod two sets into a proper loco leaving you with some useful spares and an extra carriage. Leaving out track and PF is also good because it brings down the price to one that non-train fans would be willing to pay which may encourage them into the train line.

    I agree that there is nothing wrong with a red and white scheme. If only the existing sets matched though. The ferris wheel should be quite straightforward to convert to red and white but the carousel would be quite a challenge to change. Not impossible though, I think I may well change the rest of my fairground at some point.

    In the same way I wish the tracks were medium blue instead of red to match it to the previous two sets. Not sure I can justify spending an entire weeks pay on one set either.

    I'm not quite sold on the colour. I'd only just got used to the blue.

    We're not arguing against minifigures, just where the rest of the set is minimal with the focus only on a couple of minifigures. Battle packs and city people packs are fine too, as we would all like to bulk out our population.

    Hear, hear. In my view, buildings need to be a minimum of 16w to function (unless anyone can come up with a narrower one that still manages to have a proper staircase etc.). When I can, I'll be getting hold of a second BB to make it into a proper corner building (it has this impressive facade and yet you go around the corner and the rest is tiny. Having done this, I'll be rebuilding the laundrette. Stories should certainly be left to the end user. The proposal in PR is fine as you can always just leave out the ring part if you don't want to do it, the minifigures can have other uses. The cheque in the BB is OK too but the robbery thing is pushing it. The PC premiere theme is a bit borderline too, I'd rather just ditch the car and have a generic night at the movies. Talking of cars, I quite agree that unless a car is essential, it should be left out. I'm not really sure that a hypothetical police station needs a car either as unlike a fire engine these are usually kept outside.

    I think it was more about the timing than the colour of the heads. Star Wars figures were among the first that could be considered to be "collectable" compared with the more generic ones seen beforehand, more so when the colour changed.
